For the last three months the place I work has had a "tons of fun" contest. It started in mid October and the final weigh in was last Friday. This is what prompted me getting serious about diet and exercise and joining sparkpeople has helped. The winner is based on highest percentage (male and female) of weight loss. Tracking nutrition and fitness each day has helped me lose 13% during this 3 month period. I only lost 1% during this last month over the holidays. Each month we had a weigh in and the December weigh in I was in the lead by 4%. I hope to find out this week if I win but whether I win the prize (which is $500 cash) I won because of the weight loss and I owe it all to finding joining Sparkpeople.
I will let you know how it turns out. I still have 30 pounds to go but with sparkpeople I know I can be successful with everyone support.
