The You’ll Be Seeing Less of Us team was a competitive group who all worked for UGI in the same department. They had already worked with each other for nearly three years and had shared goals of losing weight. Although weight can be a sensitive topic, the bond created between already close team members made it much easier to address.
While they enjoyed each other’s company, they definitely wanted to see less of each other in terms of their waistlines. The team members were highly supportive of each other’s efforts along the way, looking at the competition’s numbers and pushing each other to meet the goals they set as well as helping each other with meal plans and group workouts at the gym. With another team on-site, there were a lot of competitive strategies in the works to beat the other team in order to win the bragging rights at the end of the competition.
All the team members really stayed on top of their exercise each day as well as focused on healthy snacks and meals. Everyone stayed accountable because no one wanted to the weak link on the team. No one ever felt like quitting, but there were times where the team took a few weekends off from a stringent diet as a reward along the way plus they had a plan in place to make up for it over the coming weeks. This helped create a balance for them and kept them going to the finish line and the reward that await.
Now, two team members are still at their goals and in the midst of HealthyWage individual competitions while the other team members are enjoying their new, healthier lifestyles.
