The 10th kick-off for Lighten Up 4 Life for our community sponsored by Angel Medical Center will be on Monday, Aug. 25, at 4 p.m., in the hospital dining room. The LU4L program is a free weight loss challenge that is entirely web based.
The program is based on four-person teams who compete with others to lose the largest percentage of weight against the other teams. At the conclusion of the challenge, the top three teams who have lost the highest percentage of weight receive prizes. The first place team winners last year all received Kindle Fires.
“Having Lighten Up for Life become a program here in our community, gives our neighbors and friends the chance to take a few minutes during the week to ‘weigh-in’ and get the support they need to help in shedding unwanted pounds on-line,” stated James Bross, AMC CEO. “With no cost and a total online program, this is a healthy choice that makes getting healthy a lot easier for busy folks.”
