New Take Action Activity: Weight Loss Program

Need to lose weight? Here’s some good news: Now you can earn a Take Action activity by participating in a weight-loss program. You’ll take steps to improve your health and earn $100 off your 2017 medical premiums (when you also complete the Health Risk Questionnaire this fall).

Here’s what to do.

1. Participate in a qualifying weight-loss program.

To qualify, the program must feature:

  • Promotion of healthy weight loss (one to two pounds per week)
  • Nutrition and physical activity guidelines
  • In-person weight tracking and coaching or group support
  • Weekly attendance (or at least 12 times during a four-month period)

This includes programs such as Weight Watchers, Jenny Craig®, Choose to Lose (offered in Mequon/Milwaukee), programs offered through fitness centers or health clubs, and programs guided by a registered dietician or certified weight-loss specialist.

2. Go online to report your completion.

Once you complete 12 weeks, go to, click Weight Loss Program #1 (or Weight Loss Program #2 if you’re completing a second program), and then click Self Report Now. That’s it!

If you want, you can complete a second 12-week program (or any other Take Action activity) to earn an additional $100 off your 2017 medical premiums.
