“My Healthy™” Shifts the Conversation about Weight Loss from Just Pounds Lost to Health Gained

My Healthy™ is an interactive and motivational campaign that shifts the focus of the obesity conversation away from just pounds lost to health gained. Almost 70 percent of Americans are affected by obesity or overweight. The cornerstone of the campaign is the My Healthy™ Promise, a commitment to set realistic goals and recognize that for those who are affected by obesity, every positive step counts. Making small, positive steps, like making the My Healthy™ Promise, eating a healthy meal, making healthy food choices, taking a walk, being more active or having a productive conversation with their doctor about weight and health will help.

Steven Lamm, MD, Director of Men’s Health at NYU Langone Medical Center says, that it all starts with talking to a doctor, as they can advise on what may work best for each of us and create a tailored plan because there is no ‘one size fits all’ approach when it comes to weight loss.

Organizational experts say that when trying to lose weight, it can be frustrating and disheartening to keep the clothes we have been striving to fit into for years. Liberating the closet and giving away clothes that do not fit is good mentally and physically, as it can be exciting to start with a clean slate as the path to weight loss begins.

Americans across the country who have struggled with weight loss are encouraged to get involved in the My Healthy™ movement. Help inspire others by sharing photos and videos of you liberating your closet at Gather up all the clothes you no longer wear and take pictures or a video to mark the start of your new journey.
