DROP A TON Weight Loss Challenge!
It’s time City of Cincinnati. We are making it our goal to DROP A TON of weight this summer! Healthy Lifestyles is launching the first ever DROP A TON weight loss challenge which encourages you to lose 5% of your body weight. The details are simple: Weigh In. Weigh Out. Lose Weight.
Click here for more information.
What do you get?
- Lose 5% of your body weight (that is 10 lbs for a 200 lb person) and you will be rewarded with a $50 Healthy Lifestyles incentive.
- Lose .1% - 4.99% of your body weight and you will be rewarded with a $10 Healthy Lifestyles incentive.
Details: The approved program weigh in/weigh out locations will be posted to the website by the middle of May in addition to the program packet. Participants must weigh in and weight out on the same scale during the approved weeks to be eligible for the incentive.
Note: If your Body Mass Index is already less than 25.0 you can participate in the Healthy Weight Challenge. The rules will be similar, but participants who maintain their healthy weight (0 lb weight gain in 12 weeks) will be awarded the $50 incentive. Details to follow on the Healthy Weight Challenge.
