$18,000!

The Mitchy Fab 5 Win a Cool 10 Grand!

Keep in mind that challenges are great tools and a lot of fun, but it takes work to lose weight. Individual results vary.

The August 28th $10,000 Team Challenge came to a close just two weeks ago, and we’re excited to finally announce our winners! This was a close competition, down to the very wire in the end, but we now have our final three top teams!

We won’t delay any longer! The winners are…

Losing Inches, Finding Feet – 3rd place/$3,000 Winners!

Percent Weight Lost: 15.03%
Total Pounds Lost: 182 pounds

When this group of friends got together to lose weight, they decided they really needed to put together a winning team. Their goal was definitely focused on weight loss, but their motivation was fueled by winning the cash and not letting their teammates down!

Throughout the challenge, they kept one another accountable and on track through texts, mini-contests, social gatherings, and a weekly tracking spreadsheet of their progress. To really up the accountability ante, each teammate contributed $200 into a kitty; if one teammate didn’t make the goal weight, then the team would split the cash!

Some of the team have additional goals they’d like to meet and plan to continue to support one another as they go. “We value that support and accountability” they got from one another during the challenge. They went on to say, “Misery loves company, so it was great to have company while dieting, exercising and losing weight!”

We agree! Congrats again to Losing Inches and Finding Feet!


 

The Amazing Waists – 2nd place/$5,000 Winners!

Amazing Waists

 

Percent Weight Lost: 16.52%
Total Pounds Lost: 205 pounds

This team from Houston, TX was made up of family, friends and co-workers, all focused on losing weight and getting healthy. With the added benefit of being able to win some cash for their hard work, it seemed like the right time to get started!

Working different schedules made it difficult for the group to get together during the challenge, but they kept in touch, posting and sharing frequently about their meals and their workouts so everyone knew they were in this together, and “that this was all a team effort, with everyone having to pull their own strings to follow through.”

With additional support from other friends and family, this team lost an incredible 205 pounds, coming in just two hundredths of a percentage shy of the top prize! But there are no regrets,

“Even though it was tough to put out the effort and time each day for this challenge, everything is all worth it in the end. The experience and the new opportunities that came along with this challenge have been inredible, with new doors to open.”

Congratulations team Amazing Waists! You did it!


 

The Mitchy Fab 5 – 1st place /$10,000 Winners!

Percent Weight Lost: 16.59%
Total Pounds Lost: 183 pounds

This family from Florida all felt they needed to lose some weight, so Team Captain Mitch pulled them all together and said, “Why not try to win some money doing it?!” The rest, is history!

Mitch pulled together 3 family members and a close friend of the family to complete the team, all vowing to come out of the gates hard and fast and being in 1st place from the very start! Early on, the focus was definitely on winning the cash, but just a few weeks in and that shifted more to the results they were seeing and wanted to continue to see.

Mitch kept it real and pulled no punches when it came to someone falling behind, they talked it out and had a plan of action in no time, to bring that teammate back up to speed and losing strong again by the following week!

The strategy and teamwork paid off, they are the top team from the August 28th team challenge – $10,000 more in their pockets and 183 pounds less on their backs to show for it! They plan to continue to help one another lose or maintain, and 4 of the 5 team members have already joined the Holiday Maintain Don’t Gain Challenge!

Mitch says they enjoyed the motivation and discipline that they all learned from the challenge, and that they’ll all “use the lessons learned in other challenges that life will surely bring.”

Here’s to that, and to The Mitchy Fab 5, congratulations!
