Winter Weight Loss Challenge

Winter Weight Loss Challenge

We could all stand to be a little healthier, whether that includes getting more sleep, drinking more water, eating healthier foods, or getting in shape.

In an effort to promote and encourage healthier lifestyles and a culture of wellness here at VIU, we are starting the year out with two wellness challenges.  In January, we will start our winter weight loss challenge.


Winter Weight Loss Challenge
Join your colleagues in a friendly 12-week competition to lose the most weight.  Winner will be decided based on percentage of weight lost compared to total body weight.

Dates: The competition will begin on Friday, January 13th and end on Friday, April 7th.  We will have weekly weigh-ins every Friday at 9:15am in the HR office.

Restrictions: no diet pills, no body wraps, no lipsuction…and no childbirth

Cost: $60 per person ($20 paid on Jan 13, Feb 10, and Mar 10)

Prize: There will be a payout for 1st place as well as two smaller payouts to the person who loses the most from Jan 13th to Feb 10th and to the person who loses the most from Feb 10th to Mar 10th.
