Holidays are a time for family and friends we have not seen in a while, attending holiday dinners, and office parties. With these joys come holiday shopping, baking, cooking, and a lot of food. It’s easy to over indulge.
From Thanksgiving to New Year’s Day may seem short, but most people gain 1-2 pounds during the holidays. That’s 10-20 pounds in 10 years.
Dayton and Montgomery County Public Health is sponsoring a friendly Not a Single Pound challenge to encourage people to avoid the holiday weight bulge. Kettering Health Network has accepted the challenge and added a contest for our employees.
What do you need to do?
- Weigh in November 17-21 (NOW CLOSED)
- Maintain your weight over the holiday season
- Weigh out January 12-16
All Kettering Health Network employees, volunteers, and physicians over 18 years old are eligible.
- Grand Prize – One year’s membership at a gym for one who maintains their weight
- Fitbit for eight winners who maintain their weight
Pledge not to gain a single pound over the holiday season. Join the challenge and choose to be healthier!

UPDATE: The weigh-in period is now closed! Watch k-news for healthy tips and ideas for everyone this holiday season.
