Real Appeal is a new online weight loss program, now part of our benefit plan. It's a simple, step-by-step program designed to introduce small lifestyle changes over time that lead to healthier habits and long lasting weight loss results. The program is offered at no cost to eligible employees, spouses and dependents over 18, who are enrolled in our medical plan and have a body mass index (BMI) of 23 or higher. Visit the Healthy Directions web page for more information, or go to healthydirections.realappeal.com to enroll.
Our wellness program also offers the Fitbit tracker that can help you track your step count and other fitness activities each day. And if you average 6,000 steps a day you will receive a discount on your health insurance. The discount is available to employees who participate in the company sponsored medical insurance program. If you are not participating in the fitbit program, why donít you consider joining Real Appeal? Contact Tracey Dykes in Human Resources to join.
For those of you who like to take a walk on your lunch hour or after work, you can download a map of walking routes at ILN with step counts and approximate mileage.
