WhyWeight™ Weight Loss Services
Losing weight can be a frustrating task to take on by yourself. Oftentimes, we see patients come in who are frustrated by their minimal results after weeks of dieting and exercising. For those who need some extra assistance shedding the weight they wish to lose, we often recommend WhyWeight™, a medically assisted weight loss program.
WhyWeight™ isn’t just another weight loss program. With WhyWeight™, you’ll be working with medical professionals who truly get to know and understand the way your body works. We create a plan that works with you, not just for you. Let the professionals at Wooster Community Hospital help you hit your ultimate weight goal once and for all.
Medically Customized Weight Loss Programs
Do you need to lose weight? If you have more than 25 pounds to lose, we have a safe, medically based weight loss program for you. Designed for those who need to lose at least 25 pounds, our six-month weight loss program, WhyWeight™, educates patients about good eating choices and builds healthy habits that last a lifetime.
Unlike other weight loss programs that simply give you a regimen to follow, WhyWeight™ helps patients understand the mechanics of their weight loss, so they can make healthy decisions for a lifetime.
The WhyWeight™ Program
WhyWeight™ participants meet every two weeks in a one-on-one setting with a licensed dietitian. Sessions include weigh-ins, adjustments to the plan, problem solving, nutrition education, and support.
We understand that old habits die hard. We also understand that there are a lot of educational opportunities for patients who are trying to lose weight naturally and in a healthy way. Our nutritionists and dietitians take the time and effort to sit down with you and find a nutrition plan that suits you best and best fits into your lifestyle. Our ultimate goal is to see you succeed – we’ll do everything we can to make that happen!
What Patients Say About WhyWeight™
Single working mom Mandy Danehart completed two rounds of the WhyWeight™ program at Wooster Community Hospital, losing a whopping 45 percent of her body weight!
She weighed 290 pounds at the outset, and she left the program weighing 158. While she was shedding pounds, she found she was gaining confidence, a new life, and new friends.
Because the lifestyle changes that she was making as part of the WhyWeight™ program impacted her family, she made sure to include them in some of the adjustments. For example, her boys join her for one of her more rigorous exercise classes, and she adjusts what she prepares for family dinners. Read about Mandy’s inspiring weight loss journey with WhyWeight™.
