Obesity Care Week 2023: Join the Movement for Change

Embrace You Weight & Wellness is thrilled to announce that we have been named an Obesity Care Champion for another year. Our dedication lies in advancing the understanding and treatment of obesity, as we are fully devoted to promoting healthy weight and overall well-being. As we celebrate Obesity Care Week, our focus is on educating individuals about what obesity is and what it isn't. It's crucial to recognize that obesity is a disease, not a choice. People living with obesity deserve access to the knowledge, tools, and support they need to manage their health effectively. Sign up now for OCW alerts to receive the latest news, information, and resources that will be rolled out this week, and take action in support of this important issue!

Obesity is a complex, chronic disease affecting more than 2 billion people worldwide. It has been a public health concern! The rates of obesity in adults, as well as children, have increased substantially. Genetics, environmental factors, and lifestyle behaviors all contribute to the development of obesity. Some people may have a genetic predisposition to obesity, while others may be more susceptible due to environmental factors such as a sedentary lifestyle or a lack of access to healthy food options.

It's essential to understand that obesity is not your fault. The complex interplay of genetics, environmental factors, and lifestyle behaviors can make it challenging to manage obesity. This is why it's critical to seek the help of a healthcare professional to manage this chronic disease.

It's time to change how we care for and about obesity! OCW2023 will focus on:

  • Raising awareness about what the disease of obesity is - and isn't,

  • Providing valuable, science-based resources on weight and health,

  • And creating a more positive and impactful relationship between a patient and their healthcare provider.

You can make a difference during OCW2022 by sharing content on social media, participating in this week’s activities, and taking action to call for change! The time to act is now. Visit to learn more and get involved!
