Join Win by Losing!

The tenth round of Win by Losing has kicked off! Win by Losing is Blue Cross Blue Shield's spring edition of their weight loss challenge.  It's still not too late to register your team caption at bcbsm.com/yourhealth.  

Some of the major benefits of Win by Losing are:

• It’s a free competition that encourages healthy lifestyle habits, including diet changes and exercising.

• We provide an online toolkit for customers to share with their employees. It includes more than 40 healthy recipes, diet and exercise tips, meal plans, several helpful videos and much more.

• Winning customers receive t-shirts, a trophy and coveted bragging rights.

More than 64,000 pounds — about 32 tons — have been lost since we launched the competition in 2009. 

For more information about Win by Losing, go online at http://www.bcbsm.com/yourhealth/.
