Welcome to the Mississippi Community Health Center 65×65 Obesity Challenge Member Area. Here you can sign up to take the Challenge to Take One Step Forward and and Two Less Bites.
The first step is to commit to take the challenge! Once you register you will gain access to your own 65×65 Obesity Challenge page where you can input and track the 5 key health indicators provided by your local Community Health Center* and targeted by the 65×65 Obesity Challenge. Medical studies show that when you increase your physical activity and begin to eat healthier along with your doctors prescribed medical regimen not only will you lose weight, you can see improvements in BMI, blood pressure, glucose and cholesterol levels.
By registering you will have access to tips on nutritious eating, exercise routines, healthy habits and you can connect with other Challengers via social media. Members will receive periodic emails, newsletters and text to encourage them to Take One Step Forward (get moving) and Two Less Bites (eat more nutritious meals) and begin the journey to a healthier you.
Be sure to talk with your medical provider before you begin a new exercise routine or make changes to your diet.
