TEAM Biggest Loser Contest!
Grand Prize: $1,000*
1. Everyone needs to weigh in on the same scale.
2. We will go by the percent of body weight loss. The calculation will the take the persons actual weight (today/day of weigh in) and subtract it form his/her initial weight. Then divide that number by his/her initial (starting) weight. Take that number and multiply it by 100 and you get your weight loss percentage.
((IW-AW)/IW) * 100= weight loss percentage
So, if I start at 165, and I lose 13 lbs in 2 months and end up at 152.
That's 165-152 (13 lbs.)
Take 13 lbs. and divide it by my starting weight (165). 13/1651 = .078
Multiply that by 100 and you get 7.87%

Keeping people involved:
Maybe get a workplace team together? Teams add accountability! Teams of three. Having a team to be accountable to is very important. If your workplace is like most, snacks and leftovers find their way to a central location where people can munch all day long. Having team members, as well as opposing team members, watching, really keeps your mindless munching at bay. If you are in the competition only for yourself, you will be much more likely to indulge. Being accountable to other people can really help people stay on track.
The weigh-in is public knowledge. We won’t post actual weights, however, whether or not contestants went up or down in weight each week (and how much) will be displayed publicly. This provides yet another aspect of accountability and motivation. A chart will be created to track the weekly progress of each team member, with team totals appearing as well.
