Today, it seems I do, in fact, have an addiction to food. My employer has put on a weight loss challenge with a 1000$ prize, and on day 5 of 100 I'm already lying to the calorie counting app I installed on my phone. FML

If you think you're seriously addicted maybe see a doctor? But it takes 21 days to form a habit! Clear out your junk food and believe in yourself, you got this!<3


No. It doesnt work that way lol. The employer isn't targeting a specific person, he's merely trying to get his employees healthier, and as motivation, he offers up an award. There's nothing specifically targeting this employee.

You need to be honest with yourself if you actually want to lose weight. Log your intake accurately, and it'll be much easier to see where you can make cuts, and/or increase your activity. That said, the decision to lose weight is completely up to you, and your employer has no say (unless of course you're in a field with fitness requirements), even if there is an incentive to do so.

I've tried to lose weight a few times (without success), maybe if someone offered me $1000 I would finally succeed! Bit unlucky for the employees who have a healthy weight though...
