If you've ever attempted weight loss, you know what an uphill battle it can be.  You also probably know how frustrating it can be to get all kinds of conflicting information.  What's the best way to get healthier?  How should you eat?  What should you look for on a nutrition label?  Well the Vanderburgh County Health Department is making it easier than ever to learn all of these important things.

The Vanderburgh County Health Department is hosting a free weight loss program for those who live or work in Vanderburgh county.  It's their Weigh Down Program, and if you decide to take part you will have to join in on the classes once a week for 5 weeks.

Here's what the VCHD website says about the Weigh Down Program:
