Nfld Hospital-Wellness-Weight Loss Series

This spring nutritionists at Northfield Hospital & Clinics will offer a 10-week class for anyone who wants to lose weight. Called ReShape U!, this weight loss university will consist of 10 one-hour sessions taught by Kristi Von Ruden, RDN, LD; Courtney Eby, RDN, LD; and Kristi Winkels, RDN, LD. They will talk about food, food dynamics, proven strategies for weight control and provide weigh-ins for those who want them. There will be group discussion and questions for the nutritionists. "Losing weight can be frustrating," said Von Ruden, "It takes education, support and commitment. Our program can put you on a sustainable path to maintaining a weight that you are comfortable with."

There are two options this spring: The daytime series will begin on Wednesday, April  2, 10:30-1130 a.m., at Northfield Hospital and will continue every Wednesday until June 4. The evening series will begin on Thursday, April 10, 5:30-6:30 p.m., at Northfield Hospital and will continue every Thursday until June 12. The cost is $50. "This is a great value," Von Ruden said. "Because of its commitment to community health improvement, Northfield Hospital is underwriting a portion of the program."  Space is limited. To register, call 507-646-1035.
