Just Lose It Challenges Community to Get Fit
The north St. Louis County community has lost more than 26,000 pounds since Christian Hospital’s “Just Lose It” program was introduced seven years ago. The friendly competition challenges participants to get active, eat healthier and make lifestyle changes to improve overall health and wellness. The program includes exercise classes and workshops, guest speakers, weekly challenge weigh-ins and incentives for hitting key milestones.
Some 417 community members signed up for the latest kickoff, which included registering for the 12-week weight-loss challenge and screenings for blood pressure, cholesterol and glucose.
