Inspired by past competitions, a local and out-of-state group of over 70 men and women have joined together to improve their health by joining the group “Lose to Win”. Headed by Travis Eggett of Zingo Energy Consulting (zingoenergy.com), the group is comprised of men and women from different walks of life who are all committing to live healthier lives. This weight loss competition has been held for the last 3-4 years amongst local neighbors in Imperial Oaks, near The Woodlands. Competitors weigh in weekly and over the course of 12 weeks, contend for many bi-weekly and a final grand prize. Eggett stresses that the prizes are only secondary to the healthy change in lifestyle they are trying to achieve. Dr. Vaclaw experienced this firsthand when he lost over 40lbs in the competition 3 years ago.
The winners with the highest percentage weight loss after the first two weeks win a Fitbit provided by Zingo Energy Consulting. Foot and Ankle Specialists of The Woodlands will be donating a pair of Nike athletic shoes to the winning male and female after the initial 4 weeks. Dr. Vaclaw has always been cautious about the shoes he recommends as a foot specialist, however he has no reservation in stating that he loves the way Nike shoes look!
Be sure to check in on the Lose to Win Facebook page to follow the competitors’ progress.
