September 6, 2019

WHEELING, WV – The Howard Long Wellness Center (HLWC) of Wheeling Hospital will offer an eight-week weight management program starting Sept. 23.

This program, which meets 5:30-6:30 p.m. Mondays, is designed to help participants lose weight through an intensive course of optimal nutrition, regular exercise and behavior change. It is designed to help individuals move away from the “all or nothing” mentality of fad dieting to the philosophy of making meaningful and long lasting nutrition, exercise and lifestyle changes.

Open to members and non-members, the program will be led by registered dietitian Jill Spangler. It will include:
• Food journal and accountability.
• Measurements of body fat percentage pre- and post-program.
• Weekly weigh-ins.
• Measurement of resting metabolic rate (RMR).

Cost of the program is $100 for members and $200 for non-members, and includes full use of the center for two months.

To register, stop by the Wellness Center or call 304-242-9355.
