Scale Back Alabama

Scale Back Alabama (SBA) is a free, statewide weight-loss program designed to help Alabama’s adults eat less and move more. FCML will serve as a public weigh-in and weigh-out site for SBA.

 

TEAMS OF 2   You only have to find one other person to be on your team. Having another person go through the contest with you makes it more fun and keeps you focused.

 

REGISTER YOURSELF   You still have to weigh-in at an official site (like Fayette County Memorial Library) during the weigh-in week January 22-26, but you can go ahead and register yourself anytime at www.scalebackalabama.com. You can also register onsite at FCML when you weigh-in. 

 

INFORMATION FOR YOUR KIDS   In addition to weekly health tips for adults, we’ll be giving participants ideas to share with their children or other friends’ children to help keep them healthy.

 

MORE PRIZES   With smaller teams, we’re able to spread the prize money further, so here’s what you could win:

  • Grand prize drawings – This drawing is for all teams on which both team members lost at least 10 pounds.

  • Three teams will get $1,000 per team member.

  • Three teams will get $500 per team member.

  • Three teams will get $250 per team member

  • Individual prizes – This drawing is for all individuals who lose at least 10 pounds, regardless of the other team member’s weight loss. There will be 40 individuals who receive a $100 cash prize.

 

WHO IS ELIGIBLE TO PARTICIPATE? 

  • Anyone 18 years of age or older, who lives in Alabama or works for an Alabama company, and who registers for the program. If you don’t have access to the internet, weigh-in sites will have paper registration forms you can complete when you go for your weigh-in.

  • Registrants must weigh in and out at an official participating site during the official weeks (see below).
