The WCA Group Health Trust Resolution Recharge has ended. Over 1,200 participants registered for the six-week weight loss challenge. Many reported outstanding results. Thank you to everyone that participated.
Some of the successful participants shared their strategies.
Diane Prenot, Buffalo County: "Meal planning while recording calories, and steps made for great success."
Vang Maya, Oshkosh Area School District: "Packing only fruits and vegetables for snacks was very helpful. It helped me stay away from the chips and other unhealthy snacks."
Robin Dolliver, Marinette County: "It is the little things that add up to make a difference. In addition to walking on my lunch break, I would take the stairs multiple times a day and tried to have a small healthy protein snack in between meals."
Danielle Nelson, CESA 2: "In addition to cooking healthier options my husband and I have started to go for walks. I am proud of the progress we have made so far."
