The 2016 Eat Smart, Move More, Maintain, don’t gain! Holiday Challenge

This holiday season, the only thing that should be “stuffed” is the turkey.  Many Americans gain between 1 and 5 pounds each holiday season. While it may not sound like much, most people never manage to lose these extra pounds. You are invited to join the 11th annual Holiday Challenge. Rather than focusing on trying to lose weight, this FREE seven-week challenge provides participants with tips, tricks, and ideas to help maintain their weight throughout the holiday season.

Last year’s Holiday Challenge was the biggest and best ever. We had over 13,500 participants from across the state and country. Now it’s time for the 2016 Eat Smart, Move More, Maintain, don’t gain! Holiday Challenge!

The Holiday Challenge will begin November 14th and run through December 31st.
