Scale Back Alabama 2020

Due to COVID-19, Scale Back Alabama did not have weigh-outs in 2020. Instead of just a few large cash prizes, we did a drawing for 100 smaller cash prizes. Congratulations to all the 2020 individual winners and school winners! The winners will be notified by email. We want to encourage you to continue on your healthy lifestyle journey and make plans to participate again in 2021!

About Us

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.
