Community weight loss challenge returns for 2019
Kindhearted Home Care is facilitating a 12-week community weight loss challenge, “The Solution to Your Resolution,” to help Merrill get 2019 off to a positive start.
In its 2018 debut, Solution to Your Resolution drew 75 participants on 13 teams, who collectively lost over 600 pounds.
The 2019 weight loss challenge will run from Jan. 7 through March 29, 2019. Teams of four to six people are invited to sign up by Jan. 2 to get in on the challenge. People who want to participate but don’t have a team can sign up to be placed on a team.
Teams will weigh in weekly and report their totals to Kindhearted Home Care. The first and last weigh-ins will be held at Kindhearted Home Care. Winners will be determined based on a percentage of team weight loss.
Teams are also encouraged to come up with clever names and there will be a prize for the best team name at the end of the program. Weekly results will be posted by team name on the Kindhearted Facebook page.
The competition will feature specific weekly challenges over the 12-week period.
Kindhearted Fitness Director Ashley Millenbah noted that statistics show 40 percent of people give up on their New Years resolutions within the first month. By running Solution to Your Resolution for 12 weeks, it offers participants a supportive environment to make positive lifestyle changes.
