The Fort HealthCare Slimdown Challenge is an 8-week-long online challenge that invites all local community members to utilize available tools and seek motivation to live healthier, more active lifestyles while losing some unwanted pounds and improving overall health.

The time is now to improve your health! Whether you are looking to lose weight, lower blood pressure, eat well, move more, reduce stress, or feel better, the Slimdown Challenge is your opportunity to make it happen.

This year is all about living a healthier lifestyle and achieving your goals, while recognizing that the steps you take today will determine how you feel tomorrow. Are your short-term actions helping you achieve your long-term goals?  Living a healthy lifestyle takes time and effort, but you CAN do it and you’ll feel glad you did.

Fort HealthCare collects height and weight at the beginning and end of the Challenge. However, we know that weight is not a total determinant of health. Engage in the process, focus on daily habits, and the destination – weight loss, lower blood pressure, less stress, feeling better – will come. Therefore, all participants will have the opportunity to win incentives no matter their weight loss goals as long as challenge tasks are completed. Prizes will be posted below.

Thank you for participating in the Slimdown Challenge! We hope you find success in the goals you set this year!
