"Leading, Learning and Losing Weight"

The Center Helping Obesity In Children End Successfully, Inc. (C.H.O.I.C.E.S.) presents The "Girls Exercising With Mentoring Sisters" (G.E.M.S. formerly knows as Sisters in the L.I.T.E.) a grant supported program that pulls out all the stops!

We are accepting as Participants, young ladies between the ages of 10-17 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.  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.
