Weight Loss Challenge

What would motivate you (ONLY if you need to lose weight) to take off the pounds?

Anyone who has struggled with weight knows how hard it is to take it off and keep it off.
I'm attempting a weight loss challenge in my area, so I'm curious. Right now the basics are
$10.00 entry fee $1.00 per 2lbs gained. At the end the winner takes home the pot of money.

  • I would totally be into that . . . . I would love for it, however, to have different groups . . . some people only have 10-15 to lose, and they would have no way of winning against someone who had a lot more to lose. Maybe have 4 different groups, and winner in each category.

  • sounds good. We did one in our area it was a $50.00 entry fee, although you didn't pay if you gained weight.

    Good Luck and Have Fun!

  • If I needed to take it off, motivation would be if my heath was at risk, and I really hated the way I looked in the mirror. I tend to loose weight when I worry or get sick a lot, so only had to loose weight once and my S/O heart surgery helped with 15 lbs, then my DD killed helped with the next 20 lbs. Otherwise I reallly don't worry or have any incentive to motivate me. But, yours sounds good, so go for it, what ever works.
