Reach Your Health Goals with Lose to Win

By Southcentral Foundation Health Education

Picking berries is a great outdoor activity.

Everyone’s healthy journey is unique. For some, setting health goals is easy, others may find it daunting. Once you set goals for yourself, where do you start and where can you find support? Southcentral Foundation’s Lose to Win Program and the team of health professionals is here to help guide you through the process.

The Lose to Win learning circle, an evidence-based diabetes prevention program, has supported many customer-owners on their health journeys. Health educators, dietitians, exercise physiologists, and behavioral health consultants work together to facilitate the curriculum.

“SCF’s Lose to Win program has motivated me to think daily about my level of activity and what kinds of foods I’m putting into my body; but more than that, it has made me consider the ‘why’ in regard to how I became a Type 2 diabetic — I’ve learned that it takes the ‘whole person’ approach to be healthy: physical activity, mental attitude, emotional recognition (is this an emotional choice vs. a healthy choice), patience, and grace with oneself,” Cyndi Navarrette, a Lose to Win participant said.

Lose to Win addresses the physical, mental, and emotional aspects of living a healthy lifestyle. The program provides prediabetes education, with the goal of reducing the risk for developing Type 2 diabetes and associated complications. Participants attend live virtual exercise classes, health coaching, cooking demos, and more. Customer-owners learn helpful tools to reach their goals such as:

  • Eating to support your health
  • Staying motivated
  • Addressing barriers
  • Meeting movement goals
  • Managing stress
  • Staying active

A new session of the Lose to Win Program will begin in August. During this yearlong program, participants attend 16 classes in the fall and six classes in the spring.
