AMH to Again Sponsor ‘Biggest & Best Loser Contest’

“The holiday season is one of the most challenging times of year for preventing weight gain,” said Barb Tichota, AMH Wellness Coordinator. “In 2011, AMH will again offer the public a ‘Biggest and Best Loser Contest’ which will be held from Wednesday, January 5th – Friday, April 1st.”

The contest is designed for those desiring to improve their health and lose weight while receiving education, support and a little competition. Upon registration, enrollees will receive program guidelines, a nutrition assessment by a registered dietician 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.

“We are excited to offer this contest again in 2011,” said Tichota. “Last year, an average of 7.3 or a total of 613.5 pounds were lost by the 84 enrollees. Cost to pre-register (required) is $20 before December 30th or $25 after January 1st. Interested parties may call 887-6204 and take the first step in making 2011 their slimmest year yet.”
