"Leading, Learning and Losing Weight"

The Center Helping Obesity In Children End Successfully, Inc. (C.H.O.I.C.E.S.) presents The "Sisters in the LITE" (Lifestyle Intervention Teaching Exercise) a grant supported program that pulls out all the stops!

This program originally started on January 27, 2007 at The Atlanta Medical Wellness Center.  After much success, it has been expanded to include Beulah Missionary Baptist Church in Decatur and Kennesaw University in Kennesaw.

We are accepting as Participants, young ladies between the ages of 12-24 with a BMI (Body Mass Index) above 26. They must be willing to take charge of their lives, learn, and practice eating healthy for at least 12 weeks.  There will only be 25 participants for all the sites in total.  We are also accepting adult Volunteers to make the experience more fun for everyone!

This is not a diet program. Everyone will learn how to sustain a healthy weight by making lifestyle changes. We will be using "Bodyworks - A Toolkit for Healthy Girls & Strong Women" created by the Office on Women's Health, as the curriculum. Sisters will be taught with trained professionals representing fitness, nutrition, medical and behavioral specialties.
