Step Up & Scale Down

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!
