This image was oversize, but it's a picture of text, and if I lowered the resolution to make it smaller, then you couldn't read it, so I posted a link instead. This is an option I am considering, which is sort of a comglomeration of advice from you guys combined with my own ideas. It encourages people to go the distance in order to get some of their money back, but doesn't discriminate so much as to discourage some from participating. Basically, it rewards you with a percentage of the total pot, not just based on amount of weight lost, but on the percentage of your total body weight lost. So, I think it's fairer to the lighter framed people. For example, if you weight 135 lbs. and lose 20 pounds, shouldn't you be given a greater reward than someone who is 310 lbs. losing 25 pounds over the same time period? I think so. Both are great, but one is more significant.

Weight Reward Proposal

This is the most disciplined I have been, in the last two years, over a 2 week period. I have religiously documented my food intake and followed a physical excercise regimen. Since I lost so much last week (During my hiatus, I gained 5 pounds and lost it again)I don't expect a huge loss this week, but it's coming. Turns out that I thought my office goal was 236.5 this week, was actually 239.0. I told them that wasn't even a challenge; I'm already GOLDEN. So, I told them to start my goal afresh tomorrow, and make my target weight 1.5 lbs. lighter each week, starting with whatever I weigh at tomorrow. The pot may grow, but I'm getting serious about this now.

Have a great and wonamous day! Toodles!

I think going off percent is more fair. Like this system of thought.

We do percentage in my office for Biggest Loser contest. We have one leader that weighs everyone so that way our weights are private. Good job staying on target!

WINNING! Hope you win the challange! I think percent is most fair. Oh by the way, I fed my dog a turkey burger today:-)

Sounds like you really thrive on competition, DK, whether it's against other people or for a personal goal! I think you're going to kick ALL their asses!

Sophie, I think I am competitive; can't do near 30 years in the military without being so, but I think I've grown a lot less intimidating, defiant or aggressive - just don't pi%% me off! Haha! Thanks for feeding your dog, Lizzy. :) Yeah, I'll bet she's undernourished.:D Believe it or not, one of the guys said he heard the faster you take the weight off, the more likely you are to keep it off. I said, "Hold on there, Mooseface! (I told you I was less aggressive) It's just the opposite. He wanted a starve-yourself-for-a- month to compete for the biggest weight loss. I said I'm not interested in that; I want to develop a habit - a lifestyle change - of disciplined healthy eating. "Count me out on that plan." I still would have beaten him; he's already donated the most to the pot.
