I like losing; what can I do?

My friends at work (yes, Ese, you are my friend whether you like it or not) and I were talking last week about losing weight and getting in shape when we had the idea to have a 'Biggest Loser' competition. What a great idea!

We started yesterday with the first weekly weigh-in. There are twelve people competing for two grand prizes - one for weight loss and one for inches lost. We already have $60 to split between the two prizes, and that will likely go up. It will last for 12 weeks.

At my last job, we did this same competition twice while I was there, and I won three out of the four prizes. We were so poor back then, the cash was a huge motivation. This time I think I will need to rely on my competitive spirit and the mirror for my motivation. Everyone seems pumped and in good morale in the early stage of the competition; this may change come October.
