You may recall that we rang in the new year with a company wide weight loss challenge. The rules were pretty simple: $15 to participate, winner takes all. Contestants weighed themselves the morning of January 3, then again the morning of March 30 and the person with the highest weight loss percentage was our winner.
When we updated you back in February we were doing pretty good. Our habits of eating healthy lunches in the office, watching calories and portion control, and exercising were paying off as we had lost a combined total of 68 pounds in just one month!
So now that our contest has come to a close, I'm sure you want to see how we did and who took home the prize money. In 3 months our team lost of combined total of (insert drumroll here) ..... 174 pounds!! Everyone did great, but of course there could only be one winner. Our two honorable mentions go to Michael and Pat, both engineers on our staff.
Third place went to our office manager Gayla. Doesn't she look great!
Second place went to Kevin, one of our help desk experts.
And the winner of our 2012 Weight Loss Challenge was our engineer Todd. Todd also happens to be the person who came up with the idea for our challenge.
Congratulations to everyone who participated and got healthier. Let's make sure we can keep up our good habits and continue to shed those extra pounds!
