The goal of the Greater Jackson Shrinkdown is to promote a healthier lifestyle. The event will be kicked off by having an initial weigh-in, followed by weekly weigh-ins - for a total of eight weeks. Information packets will be provided to each participant, which includes both educational and nutritional information, at each weekly weigh-in. The amount of weigh loss will be announced weekly*, ending with a grand total announced on the last day.

    * This web site will be providing "weigh-in site" progress, quotes from participants, and more - including a spot for Greater Jackson's overall weight loss!
