KHC’s 2nd Annual ‘Solution to your Resolution’ tabbed a success
Kindhearted Home Care wrapped up their 2nd annual Solution to Your Resolution- a community weight loss challenge, on Wednesday April 3 rd .
The event is a 12-week challenge to help people stick to their new years resolutions to lose weight. This year Kindhearted enjoyed a solid turnout with 13 teams participating, consisting of over 70 participants.
Over the course of the 12 weeks, the teams stay connected through weekly challenges and via Facebook. These weekly challenges are designed to help participants form healthy habits or to try something new, along with adding an educational piece to the weight loss challenge. This year’s winning team was the Hangry Birds comprised of: Zach Lutzke, Trina Lutzke, Stephanie Kufahl, Billie Jo Smith, Jamie Diestelhorst and Jen Staeven; losing 7.49% of their combined body weight a total of 100 lbs.
Other awards given out include: Male who lost the Greatest Percentage-Zach Lutzke (12.8%); Female who lost the Greatest Percentage: Trina Lutzke- 12.7%; and Most Creative Team Name- “Die Lard”
This year’s field of 13 teams combined; lost a total of 466.4lbs
“As long as this is of interest to the community, we plan on hosting this again next year,” explains KHC Health & Fitness Coordinator Ashley Millenbah.
“Being part of a team is what makes the weight loss challenge fun and kept our participants motivated! Not only did having teammates hold the participants accountable, but they also provided each other support and new and fun ideas. Most people forget about their New Year’s resolutions shortly after they make them; with this challenge they were able to stick to them for 12 weeks, and hopefully are able to continue!”
