The Fayette County Extension Office will be serving as a weigh-in site for the state’s largest weight-loss and exercise program, Scale Back Alabama. In its 11th year, the program has resulted in millions of pounds lost and lots of healthy habits formed, and the 2017 contest starts this week.

Adults in teams of two can go online at www.scalebackalabama.com to register for the free, 8-week program and then go to the Fayette County Extension Office to weigh in on Friday, January 13, 2017 from 12-4 pm or Tuesday, January 17, 2017 from 8 am-4 pm. All participants must be 18 years of age and older, live or work in Alabama and must weigh in at an official site to be eligible to participate. Those who lose at least 10 pounds will be included in the cash prize drawings on April 5.

Dieting is never fun by yourself; Scale Back Alabama offers a fun way to team up with another individual, get healthy, and have a chance at a $1000 cash prize.

Scale Back Alabama is a collaboration of the Alabama Hospital Association, the Alabama Department of Public Health and Blue Cross Blue Shield of Alabama.
