How To Join
Scale Back Alabama 2020 is underway. If you missed the deadline to register and weigh in (January 26, 2020), please feel free to join us on your weight loss journey. You can still utilize our Health Tips and Resources, and follow us on Facebook, Instagram, Pinterest, Twitter, and YouTube. Mark your calendar for December 2020 to sign up for the 2021 program.
Scale Back Alabama participants must:
- Be at least 18 years of age
- Live or work in Alabama
- Be on a team of two individuals (no more, no less!)
- Register online or visit an official weigh-in site
For more information about participating in Scale Back Alabama, read our Guidelines For Participation.
Scale Back Alabama teams must be made up of two people – no more, and no less! Both team members will be asked to weigh in (and weigh out) together at the same weigh-in site at the same time. If someone on your team is from another part of the state, make sure they can be with your team at those times. Teams must begin and end the contest with the same members – no substitution is allowed. If a team member drops out for any reason, the team will be disqualified from the grand prize drawing. However, individuals who lose at least 10 pounds will be eligible for individual prizes.
We are no longer taking registrations for coordinators. If you’d like to have your organization participate as an official Scale Back Alabama weigh-in site for next year’s challenge, email firstname.lastname@example.org, and we’ll put you on the list and get back with you in the fall. Please note: This program is for organizations and employees within the state of Alabama only.
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.
