Thank you for joining in SisterTalk, a program designed to help African American and Black women learn how to eat better, lose weight, and become more physically active in order to improve your quality of life.

SisterTalk is a program that will show you:

  •  A new, more confident, more in- control you!

  •  How to eat to lose weight.

  •  Ways to draw on your faith in creating life-style changes.

  •  Easy ways to get more physical activity.

  •  Food preparation skills for quick, healthy meals.

  •  How you can make changes that fit your life and last a lifetime.

  •  How to get support and encouragement from friends and family.

SisterTalk will:

  •  NOT give you a diet to follow.

  •  NOT tell you what to eat or not to eat.

  •  NOT expect you to follow a plan that interferes with your life.
  •  NOT expect you to rearrange your life in order to be more active.

  •  NOT ask you to buy anything.

  • NOT ask you to make changes that you will not be able to continue after the program ends.

We hope that you will enjoy your time with SisterTalk and that you find these resources practical and helpful. Remember that changing your eating and activity habits is a process, and you will experience both successes and challenges. Celebrate your successes, and even if you slip, keep at it. You are now on the road to your best body — you can do it!

“For I know the plans I have for you” says the Lord. “Plans for good and not for evil, to give you a future and a hope.” Jeremiah 29:11
