HealthyWage Challenge

CONGRATS TO THE 2017 TEAM, PHAT PANTHERS!!! They won $1500 since they were the top team in our district. They lost 16.3% of their teams body weight. They finished in second place out of 115 teams nationally!
As a district we lost 561 lbs!

The HealthyWage Challenge was a fun and motivating way for my friends/family and I to make some changes in our diet and exercise routine last fall. I contacted four of my extended family members who I thought might be interested. We were motivated by the cash incentive and by the team aspect "not wanting to let each other down" as well as competing with others. The website that HealthyWage has set up allows you to track your team's progress versus others in the challenge. My friends and I had a good time with it and we actually ended up winning the contest! Most motivating for me probably was that my family members who needed a little kick in the butt to get in shape got it. I chose to use the My Fitness Pal app to track my calories and exercise and it worked really well for me."
