New Year's resolutions are made.  Spring is right around the corner.  Time to get in shape - and yet struggling.  Have you ever wondered why?  Why does your doctor talk about BMI and what is it?  Is obesity a survival mechanism or a disease?  Join us in learning about the theories of how the body maintains its weight, including whether there is a weight set point, and why losing weight can be hard.  Let's talk about how to address weight loss challenges from perspectives of lifestyle, behavior change, as well as medications proven to help.  What happens when we begin to think of obesity as not a lifestyle choice but a medical condition that should be understood in order to treat it?
