Fun Fact: Did you know that in 1918 and 1934, the $500 bill was released as a small-size Federal Reserve Note? It was nicknamed the “watermelon note” due to the design on the reverse.
What does that have to do with anything, you ask?
Well, the team at Flyway Signs & Lighting kicked 2014 off with three common goals and one friendly competition.
The goals: Lose weight, become healthier and win $500
The competition: The Biggest Loser: Flyway Edition
We based the challenge on the popular weight loss show, but decided to compete on an individual basis instead of in teams. The winner of the competition will be determined by the largest percentage of weight lost, and one hard-working individual will take away a grand prize of $500 in cash (unfortunately we can’t get our hands on one of those $500 bills, so it will most likely be awarded in singles).
Weekly $10 raffles, recipe sharing and encouragement are added bonuses to participants.
The 12-week weight loss challenge began in mid-January and will wrap up at the end of March. With only 6 weeks into the competition we have lost over 80 pounds as a group!
