What is Take It Off Oklahoma?

Take It Off Oklahoma is a three-month weight loss challenge coordinated by FOX 25 News and the Oklahoma City-County Health Department (OCCHD). Each participant who joins the competition will be given a goal to lose five percent of their body weight during the three-month period.

What do I need to do?

On the first Tuesday of each month, you will come back to weigh in, which allows OCCHD to monitor your progress. Tune into FOX 25 every Tuesday for tips from experts in the field. Additionally, new content will be added each week to www.okcfox.com on how to meet your weight-loss goals.

What is the goal of the program?

Each participant who joins the competition will be given a goal to lose 5 percent of their body weight during the three-month period.

What do I win?

At the end of June and July, everyone who weighs in will automatically be entered to win a $50 Buy For Less gift card. There will be one winner at each location, North and South.

At the end of the three months, everyone who meets their five percent weight-loss goal will be entered to win a $100 Buy For Less gift card. There will be one winner at each location, North and South.
