Congratulations on taking your first step!

Starting a conversation with your health care provider about weight management is a big first step in making positive lifestyle changes. This report will take about 5 minutes to complete and will be available to print, download, or email. Your completed form will be a helpful resource for you and your health care provider when looking at your weight history and creating a personalized weight-management plan. 

Let’s start by examining any challenges that have prevented you from reaching your weight-loss goals. In this section, we'll focus on how your weight currently affects you.

You’re halfway done—great job! 

Your answers to these questions can help you and your health care provider create a successful long-term plan to manage your weight. 

During your next visit with your health care provider, use the completed TrueWeight® Report to help you focus on what matters to you. Once you complete this form, you can consider discussing how your weight is making areas of your life challenging, or concerns you have about your health. You can also ask questions about your BMI, which will be included at the end of this report. Knowing your BMI ahead of time will help when beginning the conversation about weight management. 

Your personal history

Sometimes, people don't realize how certain life events have affected their weight. Looking at weight history can help you understand aspects of your behavior, food intake, and activity habits.

Next, let's focus on what steps have you taken over the years to manage your weight.

 

Did you know?

In 2018, a study found that 7 in 10 health care providers believe that they should actively contribute to their patient’s weight-loss efforts. Use this completed form as a conversation starter about your weight!

Looking to the future

You're nearly finished! Now that you have a grasp on how your past has affected your weight, take a minute to think about your future weight-loss motivations.

Beginning to think about realistic milestones for yourself, both short term and long term, can help measure your progress as you begin to embark on a new weight-management journey.

Tips for starting the conversation

Fact: According to one study, people who partner with a health care provider can lose 5x more weight than those who try to manage their weight on their own.

Speaking frankly about past attempts at weight loss can be hard, but your health care provider will be better able to provide a personalized plan if they hear from you directly. These tips may make it easier to start the conversation:

Congratulations! You‘ve taken a true step forward

Don't forget to discuss your personalized report with a health care provider who has experience managing weight. Together, you can talk about treatment options and develop an action plan to work toward your goals.

        Don't wait. Do something about it now. Go to your health care provider and ask them for help. Don't be afraid, don't be ashamed because this is not something that has to do with your willpower or how much you try.
