Area Weight Loss Challenge Kicks Off Today

Lighten Up East Texas Logo
City of Tyler

Here were are, officially in the weight GAIN season.

Those little packs of Halloween candy have been “fun size,” but they’re not so fun when they’re sitting on our thighs and back sides. And looking ahead, there are turkeys and trimmings, pumpkin pies, and Christmas candies, and big steaming mugs of hot chocolate with whipped cream in our future. And perhaps a few festive adult beverages too. Tis the season.

Today is the day to weigh in at Bergfeld Park and gain control of your body!

Lighten Up East Texas says Texas is the 10th most obese state. Tyler is doing something about it with the Fit City Challenge, and this fall’s weight loss challenge kicks off today at Bergfeld Park at 9am.

They’ll have booths to browse with health info and demonstrations, you’ll be able to weigh-in (and get a t-shirt provided by Lighthouse Graphics), and Fit City coalition members will give away $1,000 worth of Brookshire’s gift cards today. The weight loss challenge runs through May, so you have plenty of time to reach your goals. At the final weigh-in next year they’ll have another $4,000 worth of Brookshire’s gift cards. You can also win fitness packages, and vacations. The grand prize given away at the May final weigh-in is a new car!

Smith County is just one of the participating counties. There are many, including: Gregg, Rusk, Cherokee, Van Zandt, and Wood.

Just check out Lighten Up East Texas for More. And good luck. East Texas is gettin’ lean!
