Watch Your Weight 


Take Action!

Make a promise to eat well, move more, and get support from family and friends. If you need to lose weight, do it slowly over time.

Remember that to lose weight, you need to eat fewer calories than you burn.

Talk to a doctor.
If you are planning to lose weight, talk to a doctor. Your doctor will explain your options, like joining a weight-loss program. Check out these questions to ask your doctor about losing weight.

What about cost?
Screening and counseling for obesity are covered under the Affordable Care Act, the health care reform law passed in 2010. Depending on your insurance plan, you may be able to get these services at no cost to you.

Check with your insurance provider to find out what’s included in your plan. For information about other services covered by the Affordable Care Act, visit
