    Our group launched this at the mmeeting on Wednesday night. Is this just a local bit of fun or a SW-wide promotion?

    Apparently, everyone is entered and for all members losing 7lb by the Christmas weigh-in date (22/12 - 7 weeks) they will have an entry in a draw for a "very special prize" - anyone losing 14 or 21lb will receive an entry for each 7lb loss. (It could happen of course).

    Any others doing similar?

    We had one a few weeks back (maybe September time?) where we each had a 'Christmas card', with loads of stars, smiley faces etc on. You coloured one in for every pound lost, and every countdown bought, and if you completed it by Christmas then you would be entered for a prize draw.

    I was well up for it until I realised I would have needed to lose about 20lb to fill it in :(

    Lol - I dunno, I'm still fairly new so not sure whether these things are nationwide, or just local incentives. Perhaps it is a way to encourage people to stay strong in the lead up to party season?
