Team up to lose weight starting January 15posted by Jeff Mullins on January 8, 2018
The New Year is upon us and it’s time for New Year’s resolutions. Many of us set personal weight loss goals this time of year, but will struggle to stay motivated and reach our goals. To help keep you motivated and on track, Invest In Your Health Indiana is hosting its’ FIRST weight loss challenge!
The challenge starts on Monday, January 15 and ends on Sunday, March 18, at 11:59 p.m. To get started, go to your Go365 app, join the Indiana WL Challenge ‘18, then start tracking your weight through the MyFitnessPal app. Note: You can only sign up for this challenge via the Go365 app.
This is a self-report challenge, meaning that no verified weigh-ins by healthcare professionals are needed, and anyone can participate. The Invest In Your Health team and Benefit Specialists at the Indiana State Personnel Dept. are here to help, along with the Go365 customer care staff that can be reached at 1-800-708-1105.
Tip: You must enter a starting weight on January 15 in MyFitnessPal, Apple Health or SHealth depending on the mobile app you have connected with Go365. Also, try to update your weight throughout the challenge once a week to accurately track your progress.
Invest In Your Health Indiana and Go365 will be there to encourage you throughout the challenge and provide extra resources or tips to help you become the best you. As part of our renewed commitment we are rehabbing the Wellness Champion Network and if you are on the Indiana Government Center campus in Downtown Indy feel free to join the revived walking group during lunch! We look forward to seeing your success and wish you and others in your family that may be joining in, the best of luck.
If you need help downloading or getting set up on the app, joining the challenge, logging weight in MyFitnessPal, etc., please refer to this Step-By-Step Guide which details each step of the process.
Now let’s go lose that weight!
