|Weight Loss||Other: Hunt Motivational Scale||Not Applicable|
Obesity is rising at alarming rates, currently at nearly 40%. There are very few tools, specifically questionnaires, for healthcare providers to help their patients lose weight or maintain their weight loss. The Hunt Motivational Scale is one such tool to help patients identify areas that need improvement in order to aid in weight loss and weight maintenance. The HMS is designed to motivate patients to track, plan, and practice other healthy weight loss and weight maintenance practices so that they will have success.
In this study, approximately 75 subjects in the Penn Medicine Princeton Health weight management program will be randomly assigned to either receive the HMS or not (standard of care). They will be followed for a period of six months at the end of which it will be determined whether the group that received the HMS lost more weight than the control group.
