Packed with activity, the holiday season is truly a wonderful time of year when you may find yourself surrounded by family, friends and lots of FOOD. It starts with turkey, stuffing (with extra gravy!), and maybe one too many pieces of that amazing pie. It ends with a table full of pizza, chips, candy, drinks, and funny commercials intermixed with a football game. And in-between: holiday parties, special desserts, big meals, New Years’ celebrations, and, if you’re not careful, a few extra pounds. There is no harder time to make healthy choices, which is why we are inviting you to participate in the 2017-2018 Healthy Holidays campaign and enjoy your holiday season the healthy way.

WHAT:
Healthy Holidays is a campaign designed to encourage you to maintain your weight within two pounds from Thanksgiving through the Super Bowl. While weight loss is not the goal, if you desire to challenge yourself to lose weight during this campaign, you will find the tools and inspiration necessary to help you succeed.

WHEN:
Log your initial weight prior to Thanksgiving. Log your ending weight by February 4, 2018.
