A group of the night nurses here did a diet thing a couple years ago, we were mostly all using weight watchers. Every week we would all put in $5 and weight in and who ever lost the most weight would get all the cash, so it was like $30 if ya won.

the night shift at the hospital that i work at does one, it is all individual so you don't have to worry about teams not being motivated. They do it by percentage of weight loss.

No, but I think it would be a good idea because so many co-workers are overweight.

We just started one last week. I am very excited because it will be great to have most everyone take part instead of just a couple of us struggling on our own. Night shift nurses are notorious for bringing a bunch of crap to eat or ordering out because we are busy and didn't plan ahead. The problem is that the only types of food to order out here is pizza, pasta, or fried foods. So I am so excited that no one is ordering out anymore and everyone is thinking more healthy!

As I am not working at this time, I can't say anything for sure, but I know when I worked at a Nashville hospital, vaarious units would have a biggest loser competition. Usually they were very loosely organized, not my kind of thing. I would never join the ones on our unit, as I was just too embarressed by my weight. Besides when my co-workers would try guessing it, they always guessed on the low side, so I was happy enough with that.

Blessings,
Amanda, RN

I joined a biggest loser challenge @ work that started Jan. 11 and ends April 6.This is what jumped started my weight loss last year,I came in 3rd place individual,my team was unmotivated and by the end didn't even show up to weigh. This year I wasn't going to joined but a co-worker convinced me to join with another coworker and we have a pretty good chance because they are really motivated. Do your hospital have one? Are you joining? What makes a good team?
