Healthy Weight Week is an initiative of The Dietitians Association of Australia.

Did you know there is a free phone coaching service provided by the NSW government to get us eating healthier, losing weight and getting more active. The service offers up to 10 phone consults with a health coach over 6 months as well as online material. It may be a worthwhile trigger to get you re-motivated, with someone checking up on you every 3-4 weeks or so. A good way to start of 2013?
