2017 Maintain, Don’t Gain Holiday Challenge

Join the 2017 Eat Smart, Move More Maintain Don’t Gain Holiday Challenge! This year we are offering the challenge through the Sampson County Extension Office! Weekly weigh-ins, nutrition tips, and weekly incentives will be provided to those who choose to participate in the challenge.

If you have not signed up online, you may get signed up at our office Thursday Nov. 9th. The challenge officially starts Monday, November 13 – December 31st. 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 might not sound like much, most people never manage to lose those extra pounds. Rather than focusing on trying to lose weight, this FREE seven-week challenge provides participants with tips, tricks, and ideas to help maintain you weight through the holiday season.

Call 910-592-7161 to register. You may also sign up online at https://esmmweighless.com/sign/ but make sure you inform us so we can include you in the weigh-in dates and incentives!
