Lucy Bell - health blogger at — WhoppingWeightloss.com - announced today she will once again hold her new years “get in shape” contest - starting January 1st, 2017. It will be her second year running the contest in Calgary Alberta, but says this year will be different because she plans to keep her contestants accountable through her blog.
“Last year we had sixty-two people enter the contest, but only a dozen that stuck with it till the end” says Bell. When asked why so many people dropped out, Bell says there might not have been enough motivation to keep them going.
“It’s interesting because - in my eyes - getting in shape would be reason enough for me to stick it out, so I assumed it would be the same for everyone competing. But it simply wasn’t the case. So this year we will be charging a small entrance fee upfront when everyone weighs in, which will then be divided by the 3 top winners at the end of the contest” says Bell.
“So, not only will we be tracking everyone’s progress through my blog, but will have actual prizes as well.”
Bell mentioned that she is working with a few brands right now in hopes they will sponsor this annual contest by donating additional prizes. “I can’t confirm this with one hundred percent certainty yet, but - thanks to a couple interested sponsors - one of the giveaways will be an electric popcorn popper and a best in class ice cream maker machine as well. There are likely going to be a handful of other gadgets as well but I’m excited about those two the most.”
The purpose of the prizes is twofold says Bell. “First we’re hoping that contestants will be more inclined to stick with it till the contest is over if they have their own money in the game. Secondly, we’re hoping they will compete even harder knowing they have a shot at winning awesome prizes.”
