Are you ready to celebrate your next chapter? If so, the next step in your weight management journey begins with having the confidence to speak freely with your doctor about your weight. This can be a difficult conversation to have and on average, it takes 6 years for someone to speak to their doctor about their struggles with weight. However, speaking up can help you get the support you need to start your weight management journey and celebrate the positive impact this can have on your well-being and outlook on life.
To help get you started we've put together a simple Quiz that explores where you are at in your weight-loss journey. Fill out the Quiz and use it to start the conversation with your doctor about weight management and help them tailor a treatment plan just for you.
