H ello Brentonians,

It’s that time of year again
And you want the bragging rights, don’t you?
Brentwood 13 week version! 
How Big of a Loser do YOU want to be?
The BCS Version Rules
  1. Participants will attend the first weigh-in on Tuesday, January 26th, confidentially of course!! Weigh-in will be done at the Health Centre from 9am to 5pm.  Please note, that the Health Centre is usually quite busy during the hours of 8am – 9am; 11am - 11:30am and 1:30pm - 2:30pm.  If you could try to refrain from doing your weigh-in during those times, I’m sure it would be appreciated by our valued Health Centre staff.
  1. Each participant will pay $20. The more participants we have, the bigger the jackpot is!!  If you want to participate, please send me a quick email, that way I can keep you in the Loser loop!
  1. How is the winner determined? The person who has lost the greatest % of original body weight wins the cash! Ex: If a 200lb person loses 20lbs, they have lost 10%. If a 150lb person loses 16lbs, they have lost 10.6%. So even though the second person has lost less weight, they still win this contest.
  1. Want to be the BIGGEST LOSER…? Please register by:
    1. bringing your $20 to the weigh-in (additionally funds may be given to Kelsey McIlroy or Melanie Ross); and
    2. getting your weigh-in completed at the Health Centre this Tuesday, before 5pm.
  1. This challenge will last for a whopping 13 weeks.  The final weigh-in will take place at the Health Centre on Tuesday, April 26th  from 9am to 5pm, and the lucky winner (or is it Loser?) will be announced on Wednesday, April 27th.
Good luck Losers!!!! loser Lose Weight like the biggest losers
