Most Americans gain weight between Thanksgiving and New Year's. Looking for a way to keep your holiday weight gain down and your energy up? Join Maintain Don't Gain. This eight-week, self-directed program will help you maintain your weight-or even shed pounds-during the holidays when it's more challenging to eat healthy foods and fit in exercise.
This may not sound like much, but the problem is that this extra weight accumulates through the years and maybe a major contributor to obesity later in life. You'll receive weekly e-mails with tips for adopting or maintaining healthy behaviors. The e-mails also contain healthy recipes, stress management tools, physical activity suggestions and encouraging messages.
Weighing in on your own will be available at the LIVE FOR LIFE clinic. You may also elect to weigh-in at home.
How to Participate
- Register for Maintain Don't Gain
- Read the weekly Maintain Don't Gain email
- Weigh yourself each week (for convenience, come by the LIVE FOR LIFE clinic each week and weigh in on our scale)
- Report your weight online each week by end of the business day every Monday
