CARTHAGE, MO.--- The Carthage Fair Acres YMCA is kicking off another program to help you shed pounds. The "Battle of the Bulge" is a program the Carthage YMCA offers in January to help people lose weight. The program just ended, but participants had such great results, organizers are starting a new six-week program. The athletic director says participants who stayed determined through the program lost an average two pounds per week.
"We're just getting better and better. We're finding out what the needs are and how we can best help people to achieve those goals," said Tericia Mixon, Membership and Fitness Director.
Next Friday, April 25th, is the final day you can sign up for the battle. You can participate even if you aren't a member.
