WHY THE CONTEST, "GET IN SHAPE – 2011"
There are so many obstacles with traditional weight loss programs- Lack of Support, False Expectations, Limited Motivation, Lack of Self Discipline, etc., all of which can make weight loss difficult, depressing and lonesome.
But Now Simplymarry and DesiDieterTM have together taken a unique approach to defeat these hurdles.
Here is the secret: Competition and Community. Sounds too simple? That's what we thought at first too.
But it works, and it makes sense. Competing against other people provides something that traditional weight loss programs fail at: Motivation, Accountability and Incentive.
Goals are more reachable when we use fun, friendly competitions to help us. We hold the belief that weight-loss methods that make you do it alone will not work; as well as those that foster improvement through supportive - and sometimes hilarious - competition.
Everyone who competes is a winner. Let competition motivate you. Thousands of people have already seen the success and fun that weight loss competitions can bring. Have you? Start Losing Weight Today!
Your Loss is YOUR Gain – Enter for a chance to win a number of prizes as you Get in Shape for 2011!!!
