Choose to Lose program returns to Myrtle Beach

MYRTLE BEACH, SC (WMBF) - Saturday, team and individuals are coming in for their first weigh-in of the 11-week fitness program and competition called Choose to Lose. Sign-ups will continue until Friday, January 15th.Nancy Wanner has participated in both the weight loss competition Choose to Lose and activities challenge Choose to Move for that last 5 years, losing 40 pounds. She says the trainers have pushed her to get her health back on track with everything from fitness classes, aquatics classes and membership to all the city's recreation centers during the 11 week sessions. “Also, I’ve come off medicines. I’ve come off blood pressure medicine. I’ve come off cholesterol medicine, so it’s a great program,” she says.

There are countless health benefits to the programs, but many join for the competitive nature of fighting to lose the most weight and inches around the waist. Dale Dobis won in 2013 and has not stopped since, saying, "My goal is to lose 11 pounds, my strategy is to lose 11 pounds which I will execute.”
 
The first day of the program is an all-out fitness challenge called Choose-a-palooza with stations for everything from pushups to aerobics. And it seems everyone has their own strategy. For Alicia Bronstein part of her strategy is joining with 10 person team of friends as well as her husband. But regardless of what strategy you use or what activities you pick, every participant in the Choose to Lose program expects to see their New Year’s health resolution come true at the end of the three months.
