First Place weight loss program-who can help?


Hi all- I’ve suggested to my priest trying to start a weight loss program for our parishioners, and I think that he’s gonna go for it. Our parish nurses haven’t ever done anything like this. Since I too am a nurse, I figure it could be a really fun time. I’ve read up on this program, First Place, which is a bible-based program. It seems pretty good. does anyone know first hand about this program? I’ve never actually done it, and can’t find any current groups in my area. I think I can probably make a go of it on my own, but would love a contact that I could talk with more. any input greatly appreciated! twk


I don’t know it but I have participated in Light Way which is a Catholic faith-based approach to weight loss, and I highly recommend it.
