Kickstart New Year With Go Weight Loss Challenge

gosmall1Is your New Year’s Resolution to lose weight and feel better? The My Healthy Spirit Go Weight Loss Challenge might be the kickstart you need.

CHI St. Vincent co-workers are eligible to participate in the weight loss challenge starting January 6. There is a $5 entry fee and all money collected will be distributed as prizes.

Here’s how it works. Participants will have a mandatory initial weigh-in Jan. 6 and 7 at Infirmary, North and Morrilton and Jan. 6 at Hot Springs. At Infirmary, you can weigh in between 7:30-8:30 a.m. and 3-3:30 p.m. at Employee Health. Hot Springs co-workers can weigh-in in the Heart Center Lobby from 7:30-9 a.m. and 3-4 p.m. Morrilton and North co-workers should call ext. 3697. Off-site co-workers may turn in their weight to a supervisor to email in. Call ext. 3697 at Infirmary, Morrilton and North and ext. 1997 in Hot Springs.

After the initial week, there will be opportunities to weigh-in each Wednesday at the same times and locations. You must weigh-in at least four of the eight weeks and show a decrease in weight to remain eligible for prizes.  A mandatory final weigh-in must be completed either Feb. 24 or March 2. The biggest loser will be based on the percentage of your body weight lost.

There’s also a maintenance challenge. Participants must have participated in the initial challenge to be eligible. You’ll weigh-in again on April 13. Maintain your final weight from the challenge (or lose more) and you’ll be entered into the drawing.

There are five ways to win your share of everyone’s $5 entry fee and other prizes.

  1. 50 percent of the total entry fee will be awarded to the biggest loser.
  2. 50 percent of the total entry fee will be awarded to the Grand Prize Drawing winner. This will be drawn from everyone who completes the challenge.
  3. There will also be a drawing for a free week of personal training with 3 Phase Fitness Solutions.
  4. There will be a drawing for a FitBit Flex.
  5. And your overall health might be the most valuable prize of all.
