Is MOVE! for me?
- Carrying extra weight?
- Having trouble losing weight?
- Can't maintain lost weight?
If you answered "yes" to any of these questions, then MOVE! is perfect for you. MOVE! can help you achieve healthy living and a healthy weight, and address problems such as diabetes, some cancers, sleep apnea and gallstones.

For the MOVE! program to be tailored to your needs, your VA healthcare team needs you to complete a questionnaire. This questionnaire is called the MOVE!23, because it has 23 questions. The questions ask you about your medical history, what you eat, how active you are and things that may be getting in the way of your being able to manage your weight.
Once you complete the MOVE!23 questionnaire, you will have the option to print a patient report. The report has a code at the top of the first page. Bring the printed patient report or the code to your appointment with your VA healthcare team. This code allows your VA healthcare team to have access to your answers to the MOVE!23.
If you’re ready to join MOVE!
