Kindhearted Home Care is facilitating a 12-week community weight loss challenge, “The Solution to Your Resolution,” to help Merrill get 2018 off to a positive start.
The weight loss challenge will run from Jan. 7 through March 30, 2018. Teams of four to six people are invited to sign up by Jan. 2 to get in on the challenge.
The cost is $5 per person, with that money going back into prizes in multiple categories throughout the competition. Teams will weigh in weekly and report their totals to Kindhearted Home Care. Winners will be determined based on a percentage of team weight loss.
Teams are encouraged to come up with clever names. Weekly results will be posted by team name on the Kindhearted Facebook page.
The competition will feature specific weekly challenges and presentations will be offered at Kindhearted once a month over the 12-week period.
“We thought this would be something that would be fun for the community,” said Kindhearted Home Care owner Diane Goetsch.
Working with others on a team helps motivate people to stick to their weight loss goals, noted Kindhearted Fitness Director Ashley Millenbah. “And the competition part makes it fun,” she added.
