Biggest Loser...

Everyone is having a Biggest Loser challenge...

The High School/Middle School in our town is offering a 9 week program for the kids who'd like to participate in a Biggest Loser Challenge! Becca has signed up for it as she still wants to lose at least 20 more pounds.

The high school gym teacher is in charge of this program. The kids all weighed in last Tuesday (over 50 kids participated!) and she gave them information on weight loss programs and exercise programs. She is taking each week's school menu and converting it to the Weight Watchers Points System, so that the kids can track what they eat. The gym and weight room will be open during lunch and after school for extended hours so that the kids can exercise and work out.

Becca stayed a couple nights last week to either work out in the weight room or do laps in the gym with a couple of her friends.

I hope that the gym teacher extends this for the last nine weeks of school as well. She will monitor their weight loss and encourage them to lose weight in a healthy way.

I think this program is fantastic! Kudos to the teacher!
