Living Well in Yalobusha County

Registration For Walk A Weigh Is Thursday


This is the last reminder that we have a new program starting Thursday, Jan. 5.  Registration for Walk A Weigh is scheduled on Jan. 5 at the Coffeeville High School auditorium for the 10-week nutrition education and physical activity program designed to promote healthy nutrition practices and increased physical activity through educational lessons and the creation of walking groups. The program will monitor participant’s weight each week and monitor participant’s glucose and blood pressure twice during the program. 

During registration you will be weighed, your height and body fat will be measured, your blood pressure and glucose will be tested and you will answer a questionnaire.  To make sure that your test results are accurate, please do not eat or drink right before you come to register. 

Walk a Weigh will meet once a week for 10 weeks.  Our meeting dates are:  January 5, 9, 17, 23 and 30; February  6, 13, 20 and 27; and March 6 at 3:45 p.m. each day in the Coffeeville High School auditorium. The cost is $5 and the program is open to the public.  For more information contact me at the Extension office at 675-2730 or email me at p.redwine@msstate.edu 

If you can’t be a participant in Walk A Weigh, don’t forget about our Healthy You exercise classes that meet at the Multi-purpose Building in Coffeeville every Monday, Wednesday and Friday from 9 until 9:45 a.m. Make sure that you wear cool, comfortable clothes, good walking shoes and bring some water to drink. We will resume exercise classes Wednesday.

We have other meetings already scheduled this month as the new year gets underway. Our Crochet MHV Club will meet at the Extension office on Thursday, January 5. The 2017 membership dues will be collected. The dues are $6 per person. Also our  sewing for service group will meet on Monday, January 9, at 10 a.m. at the Extension Office. They will start on a new sewing project, pillowcase dresses for Operation Christmas Child.  If you can sew and like to help others, this is the perfect group for you!   Continue to look for Christmas fabric on sale!  We will rotate back to making Christmas bags for patients at Blair Batson in a couple of months. 

The Morning Create Club will meet on Tuesday, January 10, at 9 a.m. Participants will enjoy making a painted tote bag under the instruction of Jo Davis.    The cost is $3, which covers all supplies. Please call to reserve your spot.
