Your Experience with LivingSmart
When You are a Member, How Will You Begin?
First of all, take stock of your health as follows . . .
You will complete your Personal Health Assessment first.
From various assessments, you will learn points of strength and weakness to better determine areas you need to work on as you create your Action Plan and set up your schedule on your Personal Management App.
Some Questions to Ask Yourself.....
- Is my blood pressure less than 130/90?
- Are my lipid levels normal?
- Is my doctor/nurse concerned about my blood sugar?
- Does my waist vs. weight vs. height measurement produce a normal BMI?
Test that out right here . . .
A good way to assess your weight is to calculate your body mass index (BMI). BMI takes into account not just your weight, but also your height to indicate body fat.
The goal for most people: a BMI that's over 18 and under 25. (It is wise to also consider one's state of health and compare the BMI result with a lack of flabby tissue, regular aerobic and strengthening exercise, balanced nutritious diet, feeling of well-being. For this individual, the BMI may not be valid.)

Sign Your Personal Contract - This is an agreement you sign with yourself about your ongoing commitment to your Wellness Plan.
Next, you will visit the Food Management pages . . .
There you will explore and examine the many resources that support food safety, weight control, kitchen safety, and your body’s nutritional needs. Did you know that 40% of food is wasted from boxed meals, when only 3% is lost when adults choose their own meals and eat at home? (An Ohio State University study). Planning your meals for optimum benefit in maintaining your health will be a high priority here.
Continue with Your Action Plan . . .
Activity and Exercise are vital to your strength and well-being,
So you go there to learn about how to get started in programming a regimen for yourself.
