And this is Tiffany. I've sent you an email to confirm.
Did you know that 1 in 3 women will get cancer in her lifetime? This is just so shocking to me!
According to the American Cancer Society, about half of the cancer deaths could be prevented if people maintained a healthy weight through diet and regular exercise, avoided tobacco products and got recommended cancer screening tests.
As busy moms know, it's not always easy to incorporate these healthy behaviors into a busy lifestyle.
As a mom of 3 I made the decision last September to do something about my weight as I was obese and was having a hard time to keep up with my kids. Now 52 pounds later, I know I'm doing my best to be healthier in any way I can!
In March 2010, the American Cancer Society conducted a national online survey of approx. 2000 women ages 25-64 to examine women's health behaviors and needs. This survey revealed that women want better health but fall short of achieving it. 95% of women feel the need to improve their health but 3 out of 5 women put other's health before their own. Sound familiar moms?
Some survey results:
- 90% fall short of eating a healthy diet
- 85% don't get the minimum daily exercise of 30 mins a day, 5 days a week (recommended by the US government)
- 76% don't always protect their skin from the sun
The Choose You Commitment:
As part of the Choose You movement, women are encouraged to sign a Choose You Commitment, an online pledge to reach a specific, individual health goal.
At ChooseYou.com, women can choose from 5 different health categories: Eat Right, Get Active, Get Recommended Health Screenings, Protect Your Skin and Quit Smoking. Participants give a minimum 5 dollar pledge once they sign a Choose You Commitment to incentivize them to stay on track. They can also ask friends and family to support them. Women who have a "stake in the game" as well as social support from friends and family are more likely to be successful at accomplishing their goals.
Choose You participants and visitors to ChooseYou.com will have access to online support and tools such as a calorie calculator, virtual dietitian, nutrition and activity quiz, smoking cost calculator, prevention and early detection videos and a desktop helper with daily health tips.
