This fall, the FCS Committee of Texas A&M AgriLife Extension is offering Step Up & Scale Down, a ten-week program to motivate you to a healthier lifestyle. The series will begin on Tuesday, September 19, at the Extension Office in Meridian. Classes will be held at 12pm on Tuesdays for 10 weeks.
Step Up & Scale Down consists of weekly lessons to help participants move toward a healthier weight. The program includes a healthy lunch every Tuesday, a weekly weigh-in, a weekly challenge to help you stay motivated, healthy recipes and cooking tips, exercise resources, and a weight-loss planner. Joining a group program is a great way to add accountability as you try to reach your health goals.
The Step Up & Scale Down program is based on the USDA 2015 Guidelines, which are intended to help Americans choose a healthful eating plan. Step Up & Scale Down is a research-based program that has proven success in weight management and building healthy lifestyle habits.
The cost for the 10-week program is $50, which includes all course materials and a healthy lunch every week. Registration is open until September 8. If you have any questions contact the Extension Office at 254-435-2331 or complete the form below to register today!
