Weight Loss Competition to Begin January 13th
Posted on Friday January 08, 2016
The Wellness Committee has once again enhanced the Weight Loss Competition to provide greater incentive to participate and more opportunities to win. The program will begin on Wed., Jan. 13th. Participants should come to the Town Hall (Water Dept.) between 8:00 a.m. and 12:00 p.m. for initial weigh in. The opportunities to win are as follows:

Weekly Cash Pot
The weekly weigh in fee will be $1.50 and if a participant gains weight during that week, a penalty of $1.00 will be charged. Participants will be required to pay the entire $18.00 at the beginning of the competition, and avoid having to pay $1.50 each week for convenience. The male and female that lose the greatest % of weight for the 1-week period will split the weekly pot. In order to be eligible for the weekly pot, the participant must have weighed in the previous week. For convenience of all participants, weigh ins will also be available at the Police Dept. and Fire Dept. for those employees who work shifts on apposite days of weigh in. Please see Kati or Melissa to arrange for an alternate weigh in time to meet your schedule.

Subway Gift Cards
Participants will receive a $5 Subway Gift Card each time they reach the following weight loss levels: 1.5%, 3%, 4.5%, 6%, 7.5%, and 9%. Each weight loss level will equal only one Subway gift card, therefore participants could earn up to 6 (six) $5 Subway gift cards.

Opportunity to Exercise
Participants will be eligible to exercise 3 (three) days each week for 30 minutes during the workday, workload permitting and with supervisor approval.

10% Weight Loss = 8 Hours Vacation Leave
Any participant that loses 10% of their body weight during the competition will receive 8 hours of vacation leave.

Final Drawing for Prizes
Once a participant loses 3% of their body weight, their name will be entered into a drawing for final prizes. Each time a participant loses an additional 1.5% of their body weight, their name will be entered an additional time for the drawings. Each participant can win up to 2 (two) times only. The prizes for the final drawing will be:
5 (five) $50 VISA cards
5 (five) 8-hour vacation days
Male who loses greatest % - $50 VISA card
Female who loses greatest % - $50 VISA card

The competition will run from Jan. 13, 2016—April 6, 2016. Final weigh in will be conducted for all participants on the morning of April 6, 2016 by 9:00 a.m. and prizes will be awarded at 9:00 a.m. at the Town Hall.

Additional Opportunity to Win
To provide an additional opportunity to win, and to provide team building between staff, you may also choose a partner on January 13th and compete against other partnered teams to lose the greatest % of weight. On April 6th prizes will be awarded as follows:
  • 1st place team – will win 8 hours vacation leave each, and a $50 VISA card each
  • 2nd place team – will win 4 hours vacation leave each, and a $25 VISA card each.
