WhyWeight™ Weight Loss Services
Medically Customized Weight Loss Programs
Do you need to lose weight? If you have more than 25 pounds to lose, we have the 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.
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.
The program also includes a membership to HealthPoint, our medically based health and wellness facility. At HealthPoint, patients can exercise in an appropriate, certified medical fitness environment. Your fitness goals and progress are measured and evaluated along the way, and workouts are updated as necessary. Through it all, the focus remains on keeping things challenging and fun.
What Patients Say About WhyWeight
Single working mom Mandy Danehart completed two rounds of the WhyWeight program at WCH, 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 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.
