    In our continued effort to bring you resources and guidance during this pandemic, we will be offering a webinar with Heather Moreno, MA, CPA, WeightBreakthrough®. This webinar is FREE and open to members and non-members.

    Why is it that even when we know what to do, we don't always do it? Sometimes we even do the opposite! We want to lose weight, then eat a pint of Ben & Jerry's. And sometimes even focusing on improving the behavior doesn't seem to help. The thing is, most people know how to lose weight and have tried many times before, losing then gaining again. Simply having the information of what to do or not do – eat, or not eat – isn’t enough to produce long-lasting results. The truth is, our lives become a web of habits that either help or hinder. In this seminar attendees learn the seven behaviors that sabotage their weight loss efforts, how to cut through the diet noise and develop strategies to make their habits work FOR them.
