You know me and data. I'm a total nerd about sharing numbers of all kinds. In fact, my last post was numbers-centered as well.
Today, our friends over at Lose It shared some numbers with me about our Hometown Wellness Showdown and I'd like to share them with you. (If you don't know what the Showdown is, or want to find out how to sign up, you can find that here.)
Apparently, all of you folks competing in the challenge are hard-workers, and go-getters! The proof is in the stats below:
Total lbs lost in week 1: 714 lbs (net loss)
Total calories burned: 1.6 million (that's a LOT of calories, folks!)
Total points earned in challenge : 116,332 total
As of right now, we have about 2,358 participants in the Showdown. But, you can still sign up until Oct. 5, so if your town or YMCA results are not where you'd like to see them, you can try to inch that number higher by asking more people to join. You can find the leaderboard for which YMCA and town is in the lead in real-time by checking out our Get Moving section.
Now, I want to know some numbers from you: Since you've joined the challenge what numbers are you noticing the most? Is the number on the scale going down? Is the number of fruits/veggies you're eating going up? What about your minutes of exercise?
