Who is this for?

Read more about our Win by Losing program that rewards employees for slimming down.

This information explains more about how the Win by Losing weight loss competition works.

Win by Losing is a weight loss competition sponsored by Blue Cross Blue Shield of Michigan. It helps you and your employees support each other while getting healthy. Any company in Michigan that offers Blues insurance can compete. Your employees don't have to be enrolled in order to participate.

We host Win by Losing competitions twice a year. The first program begins in late February and the second after Labor Day.

2015 Schedule

  • Registration for the first session begins Feb. 16. The competition runs from Feb. 23 through April 24.
  • The second session will begin after Labor Day. 

Registration

Registration opens one week before the competition begins. During registration, there will be a Register button at the top of the Win by Losing Weight Loss Challenge page. You’ll need your company name, the number of participating employees and the total starting weight of your team. 

How it works

We divide teams into four divisions based on the number of participants.

  • 10 or fewer
  • 11 to 29
  • 30 to 59
  • 60 or more

Each Friday, you'll go to the Win by Losing page and choose the Report Weight Loss button. You'll enter the pounds your team lost or gained for the week. At the end of the competition, the team with the largest percentage of weight loss in each division wins a trophy and t-shirts for all participants.

Resources

You can find the program toolkit on the right hand side of the Win by Losing page. There are diet and exercise tips, recipes and meal plans to help your employees reach their goals.
