Maintain, don’t gain weight management offered at GCMH

GRUNDY CENTER - Are you looking for motivation to prevent weight gain during the upcoming holiday season? Grundy County Memorial Hospital is offering Maintain, Don't Gain, which is a team activity to encourage participants to approach the busy holiday season with a plan to avoid gaining weight. "Many of us begin the new year with five or more pounds to lose, and we tend to think a few extra pounds during the holidays won't hurt," remarks Health Promotions Manager Crystal Petersen, dietitian and nutritionist. "Research shows that an annual holiday weight gain of one pound is typically not ever lost, but adds up over the years," says Petersen. "November and December may not be the best time to begin a new eating plan or exercise routine, but maintaining your current weight is a great place to begin," she remarks.

Maintain, Don't Gain begins with a team weigh-in during the week before Thanksgiving, November 17 23. Registrants will receive information to support healthy holiday eating, such as recipe makeovers, healthier ingredient swaps, and meal planning tips along with ideas for creating new family holiday traditions that don't revolve around food. Teams may register for Maintain, Don't Gain by phoning 319-824-4161 or emailing brenda.schmidt@unitypoint.org. Teams will weigh out the first week of January, 2017, and those who maintain their starting weight or lost weight during the holiday season will be entered into a drawing for prizes.
