Down 133 pounds! Congratulations Carol!
A friend of mine who knew that I was losing weight told me about the BMI Challenge. At the time that I signed up for the BMI Challenge, I had already lost about 60 pounds but I knew that I still had a lot more to lose. Since I had already had good success losing weight on the HCG diet, I was confident that I could reach my goal weight within a year, so I put in $300 of my own money to try for the $1,000 reward. From February 2012 to February 2013 I lost an additional 73 pounds!
The financial incentive was very important for me, especially after losing my job and being unemployed since last June. Knowing that I would be able to receive $1,000 upon completion of the challenge has really helped to keep me on track.
