Success Story Submissions
The team at Scale Back Alabama wants to hear and share your success story!
Two Ways to Share
(1) Email 2-3 sentences about how Scale Back Alabama has helped you achieve your health and wellness to email@example.com. You can also include before and after photos. We will feature some of the success stories, to include #TransformationTuesday posts, on Facebook, Instagram, and Twitter, and this website.
(2) Post your own success stories on your personal Facebook, Instagram, and Twitter accounts and use BOTH hashtags: #ScaleBackAlabama and #TransformationTuesday. Feel free to tag and mention us in your post as well! In order for us to share your posts they must be made public.
Photo Submission Guidelines
If you are submitting before and after photos, you should include the month(s) and year(s) the before and after photos were taken. Portraits should be of full-body or from the waist or chest up – not just head shots. Individual portraits are preferable. Only group photos where others can be blurred or cropped out are acceptable. All photos must be high-resolution.
From Your Digital Camera
Be sure the settings are on highest JPG resolution possible. After you download from your camera, attach the original JPG to an email. Do not reduce the file size. If your email client automatically compresses files, disable that feature when sending images.
From Your Scanner
If you’re scanning a photo, the images need to be 300 dpi at a 100 percent. For example, if the original photo dimensions are 5 x 7, then the settings on the scanner need to be 5 x 7, with the resolution set at 300 dpi.
Questions pertaining to success stories should be emailed to firstname.lastname@example.org. All other emails related to the Scale Back Alabama program and competition should be sent to email@example.com.
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!
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.
