Weight loss challenges??? Should I do it??

Tuesday, January 15, 2013

I want opinions on this, there are TWO weight loss incentives going on and they seem tempting to me.

The first one is one I have mentioned before, it is the 90 Day Challenge at my gym. I want to do it, and it costs about 20 dollars to enroll. The club winners get a free year pass to the gym (pretty nice!) and the national winners win a trip to Hawaii and TEN THOUSAND DOLLARS!!! The last winners of the weight loss challenge over 27% of their body weight though... so it's going to be a tough one BUT man it would be great to try and even if I didn't win it would be nice to meet a least one of my goals!

The second one is from work, Biggest loser style. You are a part of a team of three and the team puts in 15 bucks. The winning team gets 50% of the enrollment money. The only problem is finding a team.... gah!

Both are run at the same time the 90 day lasting longer than the biggest loser one. I wouldn't mind doing both, they both require me to do a intial weigh in and stuff.

If you want more information about both I'll give it to you.

Talk to you guys later!

    Oh your lucky, I personally have been searching for challenges on Sparks.

    I would say try both if you can afford it. Since can be helpful if you find a group of people, which I think wouldn't be difficult if you get the word around. While the gym one can just be a good incentive to get yourself to the gym, while working toward those awesome rewards.

    I think a challenge can be great if that's what motivates you. You have to be the kind of person that doesn't allow others achievements to get you down!

    I took part of a couple challenges a few years back and found it really stressful and I ended up not doing well. I find it really hard to be put up against someone else. For me personally, I got really discouraged if/when someone else lost more than me - even if they were doing more work than I was.

    If I had to choose between the two challenges you listed, I would probably go for the one at the gym, that way you are fully responsible for you and don't have the worry of letting someone else down!

    Best of luck to you - whatever you decide!

    Both sound like fun as well as hard work. If you end up doing both, it will end up costing you $35. Ask yourself, can you afford to do both? If so, why not? They both give you the incentive to workout as well as watch how you eat. Whatever your decision, much success to you!
