Friends Are Power

This Sparked Me!

Gather a few friends together for a weightloss challenge. I have joined 5 friends for a 8 week challenge. We each weigh in once a week and add $1.00 to the kitty. At the end of 8 weeks who ever has lost the greatest percentage of body weight will get the Loot. Since I joined this challenge with friends it has been a huge motivator to do well. emoticon There is power in numbers!

    I did this with some girls that I used to work with. We're actually starting another one on Monday. We set things up a little differently. To enter the contest, you pay $10 up front. Every Monday we have to weigh in. If we stay the same or lose weight, we don't pay anything. If we gain, we have to pay $1. Also, if you quit before the 6 weeks are up, you still have to add $1 each week until it's over. This provides a little extra money for the winner to buy a new outfit for winning. Last time we did this, it was a success.

    Healthy Momma, I love this idea on paying a buck if you gain...a little extra incentive.
