If you’re interested in losing weight or maintaining your weight loss, now is the time to enroll. The cost is $39.95 per month (a little more than $9 per week) and includes free e-tools and an online payment/renewal process. 

Meetings are held in Room 14, Public Service Center and include a discussion on a weight loss topic and distribution of materials to take home. Discussion topics include: curbing stress eating, making healthy food choices, eating out, getting active, etc.
