16 “Steps” Week-by-Week Overview
Each weekly session, or “Step,” introduces a new concept and key behavior for weight loss. Sessions are highly interactive and incorporate group discussion, role play, problem solving and more. Each session provides a “road map” for content delivery, including the following:
- Key behavior and concept review: Why They Help with Weight Loss
- Self-assessment: Where Are You Now?
- Hands-on practice: Activity That Reinforces Concepts Introduced
- Action planning: Nutrition and Physical Activity Behaviors
The LifeSteps® Leader serves as a facilitator for change while providing information, support and guidance. Participants adjust their goals and action plan as they gain new insights and practice new behaviors.
