Join us for our first in-person event designed to meet the needs and interest of every member of our wonderful, quickly growing community.
We’ll be joined by Dr. David Macklin, who will discuss how weight management is a lifelong pursuit which requires sustained effort – and what it entails. You will be invited to consider, “what are the things in my life that are meaningful enough to make me willing to maintain a sustained effort?” We refer to these meaningful reasons as values, and they serve as a key source of intrinsic motivation for all of us.
