So remember when I told you I joined “Fit Club” at work? Well, it certainly paid off! Not only did I win $25 in one of the monthly drawings, but today I found out that I won first place, which comes with a $250 prize! Since I only paid $10 to join I’m ahead $265. Now that’s what I call motivation. 🙂
I was below my starting weight at each monthly weigh in – granted some months it wasn’t by much, but the fact that overall I lost weight is pretty satisfying. Since its kept me accountable so far, I’ve decided to keep going and have already signed up for the next 6 month round. Hopefully it helps me continue making healthy choices when the holidays roll around.
Normally I’d use my prize money to treat myself to something special, but since I just got back from traveling on vacation, where I bought lots of treasures including some awesome finds at a huge “junk show” that I’ll be sharing those very soon, I’m pretty sure it will go to paying off all that fun. But that’s still a huge win in my book!
What do you do to stay motivated to make healthy choices? Do you find you do better with the support of a team or are you better off going solo? Share your successes in case they might work for others too!

Yay for winning! That is awesome!
Thanks! Hopefully I’ll improve even more in the next round! 🙂
