Scale Back Alabama
January 19 - 25, 11 - 1 p.m.
Those 18 and older can now participate in teams of two, rather than teams of four, and they can go online to register themselves starting January 6. Once registered, they must go to an official weigh-in site during the week of Jan. 19 – 25 to do their initial weigh in. Then, each week they will receive health tips from a panel of experts. At the end of the contest, all individuals and teams who lose at least 10 pounds (one pound a week) will be placed in a drawing for cash prizes.
