OMG, if our old store manager hadn't retired I would think he was at your store. That is how it was here, then we got a new manager and he is trying to turn things around. We used to be number one with the relay of life, then we went to the bottom, noone cared about anything. Glad you got out...

My store's morale is so down its ridiculous. There is no joking around aloud, I never hear laughter in the break room or else where. Every time you turn around you are being threatened with more and more "rules" and instant coachings. There have been many changes in our store ie. Dept Mgrs who are now over 2 combined depts. The stress is so bad you can feel the tension when you walk in the doors and the customers notice it too. The store does nothing for any occasion ie. births or deaths. It actually got so bad that a cashier took it upon themself to buy Occasion Cards for the other cashiers. Needless to say I dropped my hours down to 2/week and found a different primary job.

My store is getting ready to do this challenge. I'm the PSP Captain at my store. I'm teaming up with the CMN coordinator to do this. Each person who is interested in doing this challenge will pay in $5-$10. We're still deciding on the final amount. After that, if you gain weight, you pay in $.50 for each pound that you gain. At the end of the challenge, the winner (the person with the most percentage lost) wins 1/2 the pot and the other 1/2 will go to CMN. We've had several people already express interest in it. We still need to get the word out about it though. I've very excited about it! I will definetly let you all know how it goes!

Our store is doing the biggest losser. We have I think about 12 teams with 10 people on each. We are also doing the feed america program. We do alot with the community here and everyone gets involved. I'm just wondering who's store is doing the biggest losser and if you are how is everyone trying to encourage everyone to lose the weight? We have something going that if you are on the lossing team that week(meaning didn't lose as much weight as ever other team) they will be in front of the store doing the hula hoops.
Would like to here from everyone out there

May all your dreams come true and may everyone's lifestyle change stay true, and always reach for the stars because you just never know what you can accomplishe until you try.

Hi, I am new here and was wondering if anybody else is doing the Biggest Loser Challenge in your store - or is it just an individual store thing?
