ideas for Biggest loser competition

a few of my buddies and I are deciding to have our own biggest loser competition we weighed ourselves and had our body fat analyzed. Besides money what other incentives should we use

Betting money is a great incentive to be THE biggest loser, but if you want to keep the comptetion fun and friendly, you can also choose a reward that can be given to everyone who succeeds. For instance, anyone who can lose X % by a given date gets to go on a special trip together. Women like to do spa vacations. What do men like? Fishing trips? Golf outing?

how about small rewards that the recipient can really appreciate and the loser gets something out of, too? the loser of a small challenge has to wash the winner's car, or mow the lawn, or make a healthy dinner, or help plant flowers or other yard work. the loser should be the one who has to do something rather than the winner gets to receive something, for the basis of the rewards, i think. maybe you have an area in your community that needs attention with regard to litter? the loser could have to spend an hour cleaning up the trash, or babysiting, or blowing up all the balloons for a party. or take out the winner's trash for a week, or clean the pool. something beneficial to more than just one person is also good to keep in mind. sounds like a great motivator! have fun!
