Now’s the time to transform yourself, according to Barbara Schmidt, nutrition lifestyle program specialist at Norwalk Hospital.

“Instead of saying this year, I will lose weight, say, ‘This year I am going to be proactive and do something about my health! I am going to start eating healthy,’ and guess what?  If you are eating to be healthy, the bonus is that you will lose weight.”

Learn more at a free lecture on Wednesday, Jan. 20, at 6 p.m. in the Richard S. Perkin Auditorium at Norwalk Hospital.

In addition, you may sign up to participate in the eight-week Transformations Weight Loss Program at Norwalk Hospital. The fee is $180 and the classes start Tuesday, Feb. 2, at noon, and Thursday, Feb. 4, at 5:30 p.m.
