Program Overview

Scale Back Alabama is an eight-week, weight-loss program that began on January 22 and will end on March 19. This program is designed to help people lose weight and to do so in a healthy manner, by eating sensibly and getting exercise. The competition involves teams of three to five people who will compete to see who can win the most weight on a percentage basis. Members of the winning, statewide, team will receive $1,000 per person, compliments of Barber Dairies. On April 2, the winning team will be announced.

The goal of this program is to help Alabamians lose a total of 10 million pounds (5,000 tons) by March 2007.
