Winning by Losing

Since 2011, Magna Seating Detroit (MSD) has been a proud participant of the Blue Cross Blue Shield (BCBS) sponsored ‘Win By Losing Weight Loss Challenge’. In the 2015 spring round, MSD won their division by attaining the highest percentage of weight loss from their initial weigh-in to their final.

The participants within MSD formed three teams. Each person was given a lunch bag and tool kit consisting of a daily food checklist, diet and exercise tips, recipes and calorie-based meal plans.

Over the course of nine weeks, Human Resources facilitated weekly weigh-ins, sent the results to BCBS for verification, and offered healthy snacks to the participants to show support and encourage continued success. MSD also awarded gift-cards, on both the team and individual level, based on the largest percentage of weight lost.

Congratulations to Team HomeBoys: Sherick Fields, Nekos Ross and Victor Snyder! (pictured)

And congratulations to the all who participants for their combined weight loss of 985 pounds! MSD will receive the BCBS ‘Win by Losing’ trophy, along with t-shirts for each of the winners.
