As we all know, it is very difficult to maintain our weight over the holidays. In fact, most people gain 1-2 pounds each year from Thanksgiving through New Year’s. That seemingly small 1-2 pound weight gain each year really adds up over time… to the tune of 10-20 pounds over a ten-year period!
With just a few simple steps, you can participate in the 2015 NASP Challenge. You have two options – complete the challenge within a group/organization or complete the challenge as an individual. Either way, you will do an initial weigh-in the week of November 16, 2015 and a final weigh-out the week of January 15, 2016.
Please read the Overview document found below. Then decide whether your organization will conduct a group weigh-in/weigh-out process or allow individuals to self-report their weight. Each group needs one contact person who will provide their members with instructions on how to participate in the challenge.
Click the link below and register with the Charting Tool. You will be able to track your progress in the challenge.
Note: If you’re part of a group/organization, you can still use the charting tool separate from the weighing process with your groups. The charting tool is primarily a way for you to judge your progress during the holidays. For example, if two weeks after the start of the challenge you notice you’ve gained a few pounds, then you need to make some changes. If you finish the challenge without gaining any weight, then you’ve met your goal and been successful.
You can still participate by using the above Charting Tool. Register and track your progress!
