A blank slate just waiting to be filled with events and appointments. How many of you have made your health your number one resolution? I have. I want better for myself, but do I go it alone or do I look for assis- tance? I wanted to share with you the MOVE! program through the VA that can help motivate and support you. MOVE! is a weight management, health promotion program designed to improve the lives of Veterans. MOVE!'s core ideas--encouraging healthy eating behavior, increasing physical activity, and promoting even small weight losses--are easy to follow and based on the latest in nutrition science. With the help of your MOVE! care team, you can reduce health risks, prevent or reverse cer- tain diseases, improve your quality of life, and even live longer! I'm all about living longer and having my health be in good shape. Only Veterans receiving care in the VA can enroll in the MOVE! Pro- gram; however, the MOVE! 11 questionnaire, found on the MOVE! web site, can be taken by anyone. It produces a report that is individualized and includes a list of recommended handouts. The questionnaire also pro- duces a report for health care providers. You can take this report to your provider for further advice on weight management. In 2015, a mobile app, MOVE! Coach, was launched for lOS devices (iPhone, iPad). The app can be downloaded and used by Veterans and non-Veterans, and en- compasses the main principles of the MOVE! program in a 19-week guided program. To learn more about the MOVE! resources (handouts and videos), please check out our MQVEI web site at You can also contact your local VA provider and ask for more infor- mation about the MOVE! program and events held at the VA. Here is to a new year and a new lifestyle. We can do this!
