Okay, I just read this NYT article about the efficacy of using wagers and competition to promote weight loss. Hmmm. I know that doing the Nike+ challenges against some of you motivated me to run farther. Maybe it would also work to drop some weight? I found this site Fatbet.net that hosts weight loss challenges. Each person gets to nominate the amount they want to lose in the time frame, so you can participate even if you don’t have a lot to drop. We could also nominate an actual wager that would provide incentive. I’m thinking actual cash that the winner would put towards a new wardrobe. Thoughts? Anybody interested?
