Two ways to avoid holiday weight gain

If you’ve noticed a tighter fit in your clothes, you’re not alone. WebMD estimates adults in the United States have gained an average of eight pounds since the pandemic began. Now the coming holidays—and the sweet and savory treats associated with them—threaten to add extra pounds on top of that.

But that doesn’t have to happen to you. Rockwell Automation offers two free programs that can help you maintain your current weight and/or shed a few pounds before the end of the year. Sign up now so you have a plan in place before Thanksgiving.
