Q: What if I am not available to weigh-in when the final weigh-in dates are announced?
A. You must weigh-in during the dates above. If you are out of town and absolutely unable to weigh-in during that time, please contact us and we can make special arrangements for you to weigh-in the week before. There will be no weigh-ins after the above dates. No exceptions.
Q: What can I expect when I come to weigh-in?
A. You will need to bring your driver’s license with your home address. Those who live or work in Harrison county may participate. You will have your weight and height taken and recorded along with your contact information.
Q: Who will see my weight?
A. Only the person weighing you in and a few other administrative members of Healthy Harrison will see your weight. However, if you are one of the Top 3 Male or Female winners we will reveal your starting and finishing weight at the awards ceremony.
Q: What kind of support can I expect throughout the competition?
A. We encourage everyone to download the Change Your State app (name change from Healthy Harrison happening in early 2022). The app will provide a multitude of resources in the areas of Mind, Move and Eat. We also encourage you to use the app to help establish your micro goals and track these daily goals to help with accountability. In addition, we will open a private Facebook group – be on the lookout for an email about joining the group. If you don’t receive an email by January 14th, please message us (see contact info below). We highly encourage you to join this group. This will be a source of inspiration, encouragement, mini-challenges and more! It will serve as a support system among your fellow competition participants and help keep you up-to-date with information on the competition.
While this program – the competition, the app and the Facebook group is totally free, unfortunately we do not have the resources to offer free one-on-one coaching. If that is something you feel like you need to be successful, we can help point you in the right direction with referrals to additional resources. Simply reach out to one of the program leads and they’ll make recommendations based on what you’re looking for (nutrition, personal training, etc.)
While we hope to provide you with some great tools and resources, it is important to remember that ultimately only YOU are in charge of your health and weight loss journey!
Q: I am ready to sign up! How do I do that?
A. You can sign up via our website at www.changeyourstate.com After signing up, you will then need to head to WV Fitness 24 between January 3rd and January 15th. You may weigh in between the hours of 9am and 8pm. We recommend that you wear light weight clothing. You will be asked to remove your shoes, empty your pockets and remove any outer layers of clothing (coats, sweatshirts, etc.)
