So all the results from my team are in and we did very well. I am pretty sure that we will win the competition but time will tell that. So my team had 8 guys that I work with, including me. At the start our combined weight was literally over a ton. Crazy right? The total starting weight for the team was 2005.6 LBs. As a team we lost 165.7Lbs and that equates to 8.3%. Between the 8 of us we literally lost the wife of a guy on my team. We had one guy that was a slacker and brought our numbers down. This person was assigned to our team and he actually works in another dept. Over the 8 weeks he only lost 2.1Lbs and that brought our group number down, but hey, he still lost and that is what matters most.
I challenge you to do this at your office. I am sure that my team is fairly typical of most IT departments. Good luck and let me know how you do.
