The Reshape Yourself program sponsored by the Fulton County Extension office is off to a good start, according to MaLinda Taylor, Fulton County Extension Agent.
Fifty people have enrolled in the program. In the first two weeks of class, the participants have lost a total of 152 pounds combined. That averages about 3 pounds per person.
The class is a weight management program that encourages diet, exercise and lifestyle changes to promote a healthier body.
The 15-week program is designed to help participants lose up to 30 pounds (1-2 pounds per week is the recommended rate of weight loss). Topics discussed include fast food, reading labels, walking as exercise, and healthy eating.
The class is not open for enrollment at this time, but future classes will be sponsored by the Extension office.
