Medical University of South Carolina Announces "Cell-U-Lite" Text Messaging Service, Providing Daily Weight Loss Reminders and Tips
MUSC launches a free service providing text messages to subscribers, offering daily tips, reminders, and motivation.
Charleston, SC (PRWEB) November 26, 2007
The Medical University of South Carolina is proud to announce their new free motivational text messaging service which will deliver daily messages to persons attempting to lose weight.
According to a study done by the National Institute of Child Health and Human Development (NICHD) and the National Institute of Diabetes and Digestive and Kidney Diseases (NIDDK), most people gain an average of one pound during the holidays, and some gain significantly more. If this weight accumulates, it can have long-term detrimental effects on your health. Starting your weight loss plan during the holidays can help to combat this weight gain and promote good health.
A daily text message with weight management tips (http://www. muschealth. com/WeightMgmtMessaging/) can serve as a reminder as you start your day to maintain your weight loss plan in this particularly tempting time of year. The text messaging service, entitled "cell-U-lite," is now open for enrollment.
Interested persons can sign up at http://www. muschealth. com/WeightMgmtMessaging/ (http://www. muschealth. com/WeightMgmtMessaging/)]. The service is free of charge, and can be stopped at any time. It should be noted that any charges you incur from your carrier for text message service will apply.
