So I was thinking that maybe it could be fun to hold competitions, so to speak. I have three different possibilities in mind at the moment that I'd like to run by you all: weight loss, exercise, and nutrition. There would be a specific thread for each particular competition. It could either occur monthly, or perhaps just once or twice a year. The idea behind this is that each of us would be competing with the other for the title of "Most lbs lost", "Most exercise minutes tracked", and "Most nutritious Meals Eaten". A calorie counter's thread would also be neat, for those of us who do so. There could certainly be a title for "Most days within calorie limit".
The winners each month (or competition period) could perhaps receive a small prize (such as a $10-$25 EF GC). This isn't strictly necessary, but it would be an awesome incentive for each of us to improve our health and daily lives in little ways! The best part is, even if you don't happen to win the title of "most xxx", you're still a winner for making those positive changes! Are you really going to grumble when you look back on the weight you've lost, the exercise you've completed, or the healthy food you've consumed? I sure as heck wouldn't! Those are all definitely still cause for celebration! And if you don't win one particular competition, there's always next time!
What do you think? Could this be done? See any promise in this idea?
