“The holiday season is one of the easiest times to gain excess weight,” said Barb Tichota, AMH Wellness Coordinator. “In 2010, AMH will offer the public a ‘Biggest and Best Loser Contest’ which will be held from February 1st – May 3rd.”

The contest is designed for those desiring to improve their health and lose weight while receiving education, support and a little competition. The contest includes categories for both individual and team participants. 

Upon registration, enrollees will receive program guidelines, an analysis nutrition form and a t-shirt. The contest begins and concludes with an official weigh-in with measurement of weight, height, BMI and body fat analysis. In addition, weekly weigh-ins will be held to motivate and check each participant’s progress. 

“Last year, an average of 8.25 or total of 414.50 pounds were lost by the 50 enrollees,” said Tichota. 

“We are excited to offer this contest again in 2010. Interested parties may call 887-6204 to pre-register (required).”
