Iimplemented the above health promotion plan during the first week. Ilost 4 kilograms of weight. Sticking to the set schedules of suchprograms is always challenging (Maville &amp Huerta, 2013). Iencountered the same challenge.

Evaluation

Theimplementation of the above health and wellness promotion plan waseffective and successful since it led to positive health outcomes. Ithelped me to lose some weight. I believe that if I extend it, I willbe able to lose more weight. Health promotion plans needmodifications in order for them to be more efficient (Green et al.,2015). My health promotion plan needs to be modified. This willenable me to achieve my goal of weight management. I need to improveon the part of diet. There is need to avoid foods that contain a lotof sugars and fats. I have to ensure that I stick to a balanced diet.

Involvementin physical exercise and adoption of healthy eating habits are someof the most important strategies through which I can be able tomanage my weight. These strategies will enable me to loss excess bodyweight which is harmful to my general health and wellness.
