Body Changers Program at Springville Road Library to Offer Weight Loss Support

These days, many people are concerned with reaching and maintaining a healthy weight and lifestyle, but don’t know where to get started. At Springville Road Regional Branch Library, we're introducing a new, informal community-based health program: Body Changers.

Beginning May 15, 2016, we'll meet every Sunday afternoon from 4:00-5:30 p.m. in the meeting room to weigh in, swap successful tips and recipes, pick up information on diets and exercise plans, and encourage each other. There is no diet or exercise plan preferred over any other and no registration or fee. This program welcomes all members of the community. This group is not affiliated with any commercial program, and does not promote any specific plan or product.

Information on diets and exercise will be available for those who need it. We hope to change our lives for the better, enhance our body images, offer support and encouragement to each other, and make new friends.

As part of this program, we will be offering information through library resources, including: books on diet, nutrition, exercise, cooking, strength building, physical and emotional health, and self-help.

Online Resources available through the library databases:
Alt health Watch
Health and Wellness Resource Center and Alternative Health Module
Health Source Consumer Edition
Lexi-PALS Drug Guide
Medline Plus
My Diabetes Connect
Pub Med
