I took a leap, bloggies.
Every year in January, my company hosts a company-wide weight loss contest. I have never participated in the weight loss contest, although every time they hold some type of competition to improve health, I always do it on my own.
Well this year… I’m participating! I have a team of 2 other women and myself. We named ourselves the Lady Losers.
The only part I’m dreading is the weigh in. We will weigh in, individually, with someone in the HR department. I’m a little nervous about weighing in front of someone as I have only weighed in front of nurses and my husband. But I don’t even know the people in the HR dept, so it’s not like I’m weighing in front of my boss or something. But I’m still nervous about that!
I’m really excited about this and I am determined to at least win the prize for the largest percentage of body weight lost for the individual. I know this may not happen because a lot of people will be just beginning to lose weight and will have large numbers at first, whereas I will not, having been dieting for over a year now. But I’m sure going to try!!
I am looking for tips on ways to improve my weight loss. How can I get big losses on the scale? Don’t worry, I’m only going to be going far above what is sustainable during the competition, which ends in March. The winning team gets $150 of gift cards, that’s $50 each. There will also be 2 or 3 prizes for individual weight loss, the first prize being $50. So if my team wins AND I win, we’re talking $100. I’d really like that!
So, what can I do? Any ideas? Have you ever participated in one of these? What was your experience like?
