CHOOSE to be healthy this holiday season
Did you know the average person gains one pound during the holiday season? And most don’t lose that pound over the next year. Learn ways to celebrate and feel great with the Holiday Weight Challenge.

The six-week Holiday Weight Challenge is fun, festive and gives you the tips and tools you need to succeed. Gear up for a happy holiday season — without gaining weight. You can do it.
CHOOSE a new tradition!

  1. Sign up now through November 18.
  2. Get weekly newsletters and track your weight on a personal weight chart and through confidential online surveys*.
  3. See results!
  4. Track all six weeks to be entered into a drawing to win a fitbit- a personal activity tracking device that can measure data such as the number of steps walked, quality of sleep and other personal metrics.

It’s not too late to choose to be healthy this holiday season. Sign up through November 18! The Holiday Weight Challenge kicks off November 18 and continues through December 29.

Maintain your weight this holiday season. Enjoy more and stress less. Questions? Contact Karly Farrell at district.wellness@spps.org or 651-767-8154.
