Are you ready to make a change in your health? If eating better and being more physically active are on your list, then the LifeSteps® Weight Management Program might just be for you. UNM Employee Wellness offers this class to provide you the tools, motivation and accountability to reach your goals.
LifeSteps® is available to UNM faculty, staff and retirees. This popular class offers a safe and supportive environment where participants take charge of their health. Each week, we work on small, sustainable changes that add up to big results. But this is not a “one size fits all” program and there is no “diet” to follow. Instead, LifeSteps® recognizes that everyone is unique, with different exercise and eating habits, weight goals and daily schedules.
With the guidance of a registered dietitian, the class addresses various aspects of healthy eating, benefits of physical activity and strategies for challenging situations- from dining out to emotional eating. Participants then make their own personal action plan to maximize their success. Each member gets a handle on their eating and activity, sets personal goals and takes action to achieve a healthy weight. LifeSteps® works because it is grounded in science and stresses personal choice, responsibility and accountability.
For spring 2019, we have two class offerings:
- Wednesdays on main campus starting Jan. 30
- Thursdays on north campus starting Jan. 31
UNM benefit-eligible employees may use Health and Fitness tuition remission.
