Maintain, Don't Gain Holiday Challenge
The average American consumes around 4,500 calories during Thanksgiving dinner (and that's only dinner -- the midnight leftovers are extra!) and can often gain up to five pounds over the holiday season. This year, Thrive wants you to keep enjoying your holiday foods while staving off the pounds with the Maintain Don't Gain
What it is:
Maintain Don't Gain
encourages you to keep an eye on what you're consuming over the holidays. Beginning November 11, participants will attend weigh-ins to make sure they're within two pounds of their weight at the start of the challenge. Raffle tickets will be awarded for both maintaining and losing pounds, to be entered for a grand prize of $500 and two second prizes of $250 each. ALL active team members are eligible to participate, and the challenge is free!
First weigh-in is November 11 (Required)
Interim weigh-in dates (must choose at least one)
Final weigh-in is January 6 (Required)
