Holiday Challenge
Many Americans gain between one and five pounds each year between Thanksgiving and the New Year. While this might not sound like much, weight gained during the holidays accounts for 51% of people’s weight gain for the entire year. The problem is most people never lose those extra pounds and year after year it adds up.
The Eat Smart, Move More… Maintain, don’t gain! Holiday Challenge is a FREE weight maintenance program that runs from Thanksgiving through New Year’s Eve. Instead of focusing on losing weight during such a hectic time of year, we encourage participants to maintain their weight throughout the holiday season.
The 2020 Holiday Challenge will begin on November 16, and participants will receive the first Weekly Newsletter that morning. The program will run through December 31. Registration for the Holiday Challenge is always open and does not close, so new participants may sign up at any time.
When you sign up with Gates or Hertford County Family and Consumer Science agent, you will be able to submit weekly logs for a chance to win prizes for your hard work. You will also receive notification of upcoming virtual classes.
