The YMCA Weight Loss Challenges wants to help you lose weight in a healthy way! You will track your nutritional intake, activity and success!

This is a 12-week program designed to assist participants in achieving their weight loss goals and maintaining their new healthy weight! There is more to weight loss than just losing pounds; it's also about healthy thinking, personal care, emotional well-being and genuine fellowship.


There are currently no sessions available for online registration. Please contact Gayl Anderson as ganderson@ymcalouisville.org or at 502.587.7405 for more information.

Weekly, hour-long sessions explore practical topics essential to maintaining a healthy lifestyle including:
  • Healthy eating, meal balance and meal pattern
  • Increasing physical activity
  • Tracking nutritional values such as fat intake and food portions
  • Overcoming weight loss plateaus
  • Staying motivated
  • Small groups ensure personal attention and accountability, promote interaction and fellowship, and encourage behavior change.
Each participants will receive an educational binder, Calorie King Nutritional Trackers and a pedometer to get started, with other incentives along the way.
