a recent study by texas tech university found that the average person gains about 2.2 pounds per year. the shocking part of this is that 1.7 pounds (that’s almost 80% of it) occurs during the holiday season – november thru january. this really shouldn’t be that surprising. starting with the candy overload of halloween and ending with the drink-fest of new year’s eve, these holiday months are full of feasts and shorter days with cooler temps. it seems almost impossible to NOT gain weight during the holiday season.
and that is why we want to challenge you to LOSE weight during these months!
starting the first weekend in november and ending in mid January, we are challenging you to lose as much weight as possible and to compete against others in the jackson area. liveRIGHTnow and butterfly yoga are teaming up to issue the Survive the Season Weight Loss Challenge! (weight loss will be measured as a percentage of your overall weight.) each participant will put $20 into the pot and liveRIGHTnow will start the pot with $50.
the first weigh-in will take place at butterfly yoga (3025 n. state st., jackson) on:
friday, october 26th from 12:30 to 1:30pm
saturday, october 27th from 12pm to 2pm
sunday, october 28th from 1pm to 2pm.
make the commitment now! this will be great incentive to make healthier decisions this holiday season when it matters the most. we will be providing specific programs and information to help guide you through the process. contact terry@liveRIGHTnowonline.com to sign up, or you can message us on facebook at http://www.facebook.com/
