All Scale Back Alabama participants must be at least 18 years of age, live or work in Alabama, and be on a team of two individuals (no more, no less!), and register online or visit an official weigh-in site.
How to Sign Up
Step 1 – Register yourself and your team member on our website or using the Scale Back Alabama mobile app. You have to provide information for both team members before you can submit the registration. There is no cost to participate in the competition or to register.
Step 2 – Print the registration confirmation and take it with you to the weigh-in site during weigh-in week (January 21-27) for the coordinator to fill in your beginning weight.
Step 3 – Print these Guidelines For Participation and review them to ensure you know what to do.
Step 4 – If you’re weighing in at your company, church, etc., check with your local coordinator for the days and times to weigh in. If you need to weigh in at a public site, visit Weigh-In Sites to find a site near you. Sites will have different weigh-in times and days, but all weigh-ins have to be done between January 21 and 27 … no exceptions.
Step 5 – Start getting healthy. Beginning in February, you will receive confirmation of your participation, along with your first health tips in a series of weekly health tips. Scale Back Alabama is designed to address the state’s challenge with obesity; however, we caution individuals to check with their health care provider before beginning a new exercise or diet regimen.
Scale Back Alabama (SBA) is a free statewide weight-loss campaign designed to encourage Alabamians to get healthy and to have fun while doing it. Since the first challenge in 2007, Alabamians have lost more than one million pounds!
