The Dundee Decrease is underway

DUNDEE—With the first weigh-in for the “Great Dundee Decrease,” a total of 59 people who live or work in Dundee are ready to lose weight.
As of the June 29 weigh-in, the grand prize for losing the highest percentage of your body weight is $500. Second place is $250, and third place is $85. Jen Hutches, one of the coordinators, said people still have until Tuesday, July 27 to weigh-in and participate in the program that runs until Oct. 26.
All future weigh-ins will be Tuesdays, from 6:30 to 7:30 p.m., at the Dundee Wellness Center at the school. Hutches said the 59 people who already weighed in is just over what she expected for the program’s start.
In addition to the cash prizes at the end of the program, there will also be monthly prizes. Hutches said to be eligible for those, people must weigh-in twice in one month. She explained the prizes will be certificates to attend yoga or Zumba classes, or gas cards.
“There’s a lot of excitement, like there would be in the beginning,” said Hutches. She added people are mostly asking about how to lose weight and will the program help with exercise.
The Great Dundee Decrease is offering resources and online help via the Dundee school Web site. Upon visiting http://www.dundeecs.org, there is a link on the left hand side called “Dundee Decreasers.” There, participants can view the numbers for weigh-ins, though the list gives no names, just ID numbers.
There are also links for Weight Watchers and The Biggest Loser online program. Hutches added there will also be a calendar that shows events in the area, like walks/runs and bike-a-thons. Hours for the Wellness Center are also listed.
Hutches said in addition to the Wellness Center, two other structured options for working out away from home are yoga (being offered starting later in July) and Zumba classes, which have a cost.
Hutches added there is no one thing people can do to lose weight: it’s a lifestyle change. However, participants in this program are all trying to reach the same goal, and the Dundee Decrease is giving people the information on how to do it.
