Maintain your weight with the Hold the Stuffing Challenge

Health Plus challenges you to keep the holiday weight gain on hold with Hold the Stuffing.

Weigh in before Thanksgiving and again in early January. If you maintain your weight or gain no more than 2 pounds, you will be entered into a drawing for one of 10 Vanderbilt Bookstore gift cards for $50. Everyone receives tips for succeeding and recipes.

Initial weigh-ins will be held Nov. 14-19. The first weigh-ins will be Monday, Nov. 14, from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m. in the North Lobby of Light Hall and 11 a.m. to 1 p.m. in the Peabody Library, room 202. A full schedule is here. Bring your Vanderbilt ID card with you.

Several Hold the Stuffing locations will offer a non-fasting glucose (blood sugar) screening in partnership with the Vanderbilt Diabetes Center, as noted on the schedule.

Off campus departments that do not have access to a Hold the Stuffing station can still participate. E-mail Health Plus to learn more about getting a Do-It-Yourself Tool Kit for your department.
