“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.”
