Scale Back Alabama Begins
Jan. 09, 2017. Scale Back Alabama, a statewide weight loss contest, will kick off its 11th year this Wednesday, January 11 as participants are invited to weigh in at designated spots around town.
Each year the program invites participants to join with a partner and work toward losing 10 pounds in 10 weeks. Lee County participants lost more than 4,000 pounds last year, contributing to the state's more than one million pounds lost since the contest began in 2007, according to a release from the Alabama Department of Health.
Al two-member teams on which both members lose 10 pounds will be entered into a statewide drawing from prizes. Three teams will win $1,000 per team member, three will win $500 per team member and three will win $250 per member.
All individuals who lose 10 pounds will also be entered into a separate drawing where 40 people will win $100. Those entering the team drawing will not be eligible.
Monthly activities to keep participates active will be scheduled throughout the contest and tips can be found at www.scalebackalabama.com .
