I just wanted to share a mini-success that I had. I am a teacher at a local high school and our school district is focused on wellness right now. The rival high school challenged our staff to a "biggest loser" (like the TV show) competition. We weigh in every week between Jan 23 and May 1, there are mini incentives along the way and over 50 people from each school signed up! I am so proud of our school for doing this and so many people being interested in becoming healthier. It has provided me with incredible motivation, now when I see that cookie I think "I don't want to let my whole school down". I lost 7.5 lb in the first week!!!
I am so proud of myself. I wanted to share what a great motivator this competition has been. Maybe some of you could adapt it to fit your own professions or social groups.
