Jan 6th $10,000 Team Challenge is a New Year’s Success!
There’s nothing like a huge cash incentive to get people motivated to lose weight and the January 6, 2017 Team Challenge proved just that! With over 350 teams across the country competing, we had a 7-way tie for 1st place!
Congratulations to our winners, Teams Eagle’s Wings, Gut Reaction, Hut to it, MERCYless, Notoriously B.I.G., Skinny Kids and Missy’s Men and Mike for losing a combined total of 1,457 pounds (that’s an average weight loss 42 pounds per team member)! Because of the tie, the $18,000 in top team prizes has been pooled together, and all top 7 teams will be taking home $2,571.00.
Team Missy’s Men and Mike – Percentage weight loss: 16.59%
Team MERCYless from Mercy Hospital – Percentage weight loss: 16.59%
Always up for a challenge, this team co-workers (who are more like family), relied on each other throughout the 12 weeks to stay motivated and on track. “We were able to see each other on a daily basis and we kept track of everyone on a white board to keep them accountable,” states team member Lori D. “We made it fun, but don’t think we weren’t serious.” In addition, being able to see and interact with competing teams throughout the challenged inspired Team MERCYless. “To see that so many people were excited about being healthy and made it a competition, was encouraging.”
Team Skinny Kids – Percentage weight loss: 16.59%
This group of friends, family and co-workers stayed connected “through the world’s longest group message (over 2,700 text message),” claims team member Patrick M. By deciding as a group on a set of strict diet and alcohol rules, team Skinny Kids slimmed down by watching their food and drink intake, doing group workouts, and consistently supporting one another through group messaging. In addition, they included their own incentive to score #1: “anybody who didn’t hit the 16.59 % was going to pay for the others the entrance fee for the team members who made it.” Now that’s accountability!
Team Eagle’s Wings from Carnival – Percentage weight loss: 16.59%
Team Gut Reaction from Schlumberger – Percentage weight loss: 16.59%
Team Hut to it – Percentage weight loss: 16.59%
Team Notoriously B.I.G. – Percentage weight loss: 16.59%
And, congratulations to our ribbon winners, who split the ribbon pot of $2,000, each taking home $71.42!
