Biggest Loser at Work!

I decided to start a "Biggest Loser" competition at work. Several people are trying/wanting to lose weight, so I thought this would be the perfect way to encourage each other and help each other out. I've enlisted the help of a couple of people, but I've basically been given free reign--I'm a little nervous, but I'm confident that it will be AWESOME!

Now, I would LOVE to get some help from you guys as well. I want to give little kickoff packages to everyone who participates. I was thinking about a (nice) water bottle, a pedometer, and.... something else. However, I can't think of anything to be that "something else". Oh, and I also picked up a bunch of guest passes from my gym (there's a location like 3 minutes from the office) to give out. Do you have any other ideas? Also, what a good water bottle that I could include?

We are also going to give out weekly prizes to the team that loses the most that week (the competition will be 8 weeks long); I have some casual day and 30-minute break cards, but what are some other smaller prizes that we could give?

We are also going to give out individual prizes at the very end, to the person who loses the most weight and the person who loses the most inches. Any ideas for those prizes?

Everyone who participates will pay $20, and this will be the prize pot. The winning team at the end will get all the cash.

I really am super excited about this. I wanted something to look forward to after my weight loss challenge at the gym is over! I would love to hear any and all ideas you have to help make this competition a success---you guys are awesome!

Fun! I love my metal SIGG water bottle. I carry it everywhere.

How fun! What about a measuring tape or some flavored packets to put in water?

What a great idea! How about a blender bottle? Those aren't that expensive and they are very useful if you make protein shakes on the go!
