Want some extra motivation to get healthy and lose weight before the holidays? I have a contest for you!
Snack Girl has partnered with HealthyWage to offer a Snack Girl Jackpot Challenge for my readers and their friends, family and colleagues.
Here’s how it works. We are all going to form teams of 4-9 people - sign up and let us help with inviting your friends and family. You can build a team or we can help you join a team if your friends and family aren't game.
Each participant puts money into the Jackpot ($20/mo or $60 total). Your team will be competing to lose 6% in three months. Winners (teams that lose 6% before the end) each get an equal share of the Jackpot.
For example, if you weigh 200 pounds, your goal for 12 weeks would be to lose 12 pounds. Only you know your weight and your weight loss goal (no need to share unless you want to). Hopefully, this weight loss goal is at a sustainable rate for you and you would keep up your new healthy habits through the holidays.
The sky's the limit on how big the Jackpot can grow, and each participant’s payout depends on how many people enter and how many people win. Typically, if your team hits the goal, you double your money or more.
HealthyWage is based on some important research out of Harvard, Penn and Mayo over the last few years that says, not surprisingly, that financial games with social components make us more likely to lose weight. In short, the biggest secret is your desire to avoid letting your teammates down. You wouldn’t want to be responsible for preventing your teammates from winning a share of the Jackpot.
You become motivated to make changes by winning money, helping your team, and getting healthy. This is a win-win-win!
So join us for some fun and to see who can win a share of the Jackpot. The goal: get as many people to sign up as possible, have a ton of fun and lose at least Boeing 747’s worth of pounds.
The challenge runs for 12 weeks starting on September 16, 2015, and registration is on now Snack Girl Challenge. After registering, you can either make a team or join an already-existing one.
