Join a Weight Loss Group

>> Monday, October 12, 2009

Joining a weight loss group makes losing weight a lot more fun than doing it on your own. I actually was motivated to start dieting again when I heard that in our workplace, there was a BIGGEST LOSER's group. Like the TV show, there would be an initial weigh in. After that, our weight loss is tracked on a weekly basis.

To motivate those in the group, there is a penalty if a certain weight loss is not achieved within a week. One is not required to pay anything if the weight loss is greater or equal to 3 lbs. If the weight loss is 2 lbs, the penalty is $1. If the weight loss is 1 lbs, the penalty is $2. If there is no weight loss, the penalty is $3. If there was a weight gain of 1 lb, the penalty is $4. And so forth...

The collected penalties go to an account. At the end of the 3 month period, the biggest loser gets 50% of the accumulated penalties, the 2nd biggest loser would get 30%, and the 3rd biggest loser gets 20%.

I intend to win the whole she-bang. I know some of my friends in the same group are not contented with placing 2nd so, I'm sure they want to win as well. Our competitive juices are now churning. Really hope that converts to weight loss as well...
