So I was trying to find different ways to stay motivated and had the idea to get more involved. What I mean by that is I'm starting a health- motivation group at work. I proposed this Idea to my HR manager at work and she LOVED it.. I feel as though I do so much better with encouragement from other people who have some of the same ailments as I do. The plan- a 16 week challenge- before and after photos- weekly weigh ins-( privately ) weekly team lunches with topic discussions- recipe exchanges- weekly goals ( food or exercise related) break-time parking lot walks and a buddy system- each person donates $25 dollars as an initial entry fee and the company will match the contribution- the money goes to a gift of a hair and clothing makeover at the end of the challenge for the person who lost the most weight pound by pound and the person who had the most total percentage of weight lost (2 winners) we would also have a closing dinner event out at a nice dinner to show off the new look.
If you have any ideas on topics to discuss or ideas for weekly challenges please post. Also if you have done anything like this in the past and have advise or info on things that work or didn't work so well please share those experiences as well ;)
