(WAFF) - Heads up for those of you shedding the pounds alongside your fellow Alabamians.

This week is designated as "Weigh-out week" for the Scale Back Alabama project.

Since Jan. 19, participants have been exercising and eating better in an attempt to shed the pounds.

Now, between April 6-12, it is time to step on the scales one more time and log how much weight has been lost.

Those who lose 10 pounds or more will be entered into an April 24 drawing for cash prizes.

Even if you didn't hit the 10 pound threshold, you are encouraged to weigh out so the state's total weight loss can be calculated.

For more information, visit the Scale Back Alabama website.
