Personal Assessment

We’ve all heard the phrase, “Give a man a fish and you feed him for a day; teach a man to fish and you feed him for a lifetime.”

At St. Vincent Healthcare-Weight Management, we take the same approach to weight management. We believe that this is a journey, not a one-time fix. That’s why we teach you how to use the tools and assessments that help you make healthy decisions everyday and stay on track.

The tools below support our holistic approach to health – teaching you to care for your mind, body and spirit – and also provide concrete information that you need to assess your progress during weight loss.
