We all know losing weight is difficult. Here, at the 5% Challenges, we try to make it fun too. When something is fun, you're more likely to stick it out, and finish. When things are boring or mundane, you might give up. If you join the challenge, you and your team have a chance to earn "page swag" or "badges"! Each week, your team can earn up to four team badges:
Landing Badge: This badge is awarded to the team who lands in first place. The team who landed in first place during our adventure to Falkland Isles was... TEDDYBEARS!
Mileage Badge: This badge is awarded to the team who had the most mileage (AKA exercise minutes) during the week. The team who earned this badge for Week 6 was.... SPIRITED UNDERDAWGS!
LTGL Badge: This badge is awarded to the team who had the most Living the Good Life points for the week. This week's living the good life was happiness and cutting 100 calories from our diets. The team who earned this badge for week 6 was.... AWESOME A TEAM!
Biggest Loser Badge: This badge is awarded to the team who lost the most weight during Week 6. This week's winner was.... AWESOME A TEAM!
The 5% Challenges are so much FUN!!! Don't just take my word for it, read some of what the other members have to say about the 5% Challenges...
FITFORME17, Weight Warriors CL for Spring 2020
It took me a while to find the right team for me, to find where I fit in. It wasn't until I started the 5% challenges that I really started to focus on the little things that add up and make the difference. The amount of support exchanged within one of these teams is something I have never found anywhere else and it's why I am still here after almost 3 years. I still struggle sometimes, but I haven't given up for the first time in my adult life.

The 5% challenges keep me focused and motivated. Having a team depending on every member helps if you feel like going off track.
Plus it's fun!!

I love the 5% challenge it give me a structure plan to add new habits to help me lose weight. I have done the challenges few times and met my 5% goal.

The Winter 2020 5% Challenge was my first one and I am so glad that I joined. The camaraderie, support, and friendship that I received from my team helped me with my weight loss goals more than I ever imagined. Not only have I made Spark friends for life, but sticking to my weight loss goals has been so much more fun and easy thanks to Team Cloverleaf. All I can say is count me in for the Spring 2020 Challenge (and as many more as it takes to help me get to my goal weight!) If you join, you'll lose weight, make friends, and have fun doing it.
