Fun Weight Loss Challenge Ideas To Help Get You Results

I’m sure we could all agree that trying to lose weight is no fun. It seems like gaining weight is so easy, but losing it can seem impossible. So when it comes to reaching your weight loss goals, finding ways to make losing weight fun is key to long term success.

This is why many people are turning to challenges, which is why I am writing this article. I’m here to help you find fun weight loss challenge ideas to help get you results. You want to make sure the challenges you participate in keep you motivated throughout the process.

I’m sure that after reading this article, you will find the value of challenges, and maybe losing weight won’t be as bad as it seems. But first let’s learn why weight loss challenges are important to anyone with weight loss goals.

Importance of Weight Loss Challenges

One of the hardest things for people to develop when it comes to living a healthy lifestyle, is motivation. There can be many reasons for this, like stress, fear of failure, or just not having enough confidence in themselves. This is what makes challenges so important.

Taking part in any challenge gives you a sense of purpose. Whether it be a personal challenge, or a team challenge, knowing that something is on the line helps jump start the motivation.

Also, research has shown that you are more likely stick to a weight loss program when there are incentives involved. Not only are you more likely to stick with the program, but you have a better chance of actually reaching your goals compared to those without incentives.

This is the power of challenges. Most importantly, what also helps you stick to the program is if you find it fun. We’ve all heard the saying, “time flies when you’re having fun.” Well the same can be said for anyone that find exercising fun.

So if you’re looking for fun ways make losing weight exciting, below are some ways to do it.

Be Part of a Team

There’s no better way to find motivation then by being part of a team. Knowing that others are relying on you to be successful would give anyone purpose. If you’re someone that tends to quit when it comes to having fitness goals, being part of a team makes that choice a little tougher.

What’s also great about being part of a team is the fact that you are part of a community of people trying to accomplish the same goals. Being around people that understand your struggle and are there to support you through it is a great thing to be a part of.

By participating it challenges, not only do you have an opportunity to win prizes, but you also get to build lifelong friendships. Which can be very valuable to the long term success of you losing weight.

Step It Up

Nowadays, everyone has a fit watch where they keep track of everything like heart rate and calories burned. But another thing that many people like to keep track of are the steps taken throughout the day.

Tracking your steps is important because more than likely you have a goal of how many steps that need to be taken. This ensures that you are being active and not sedentary during the day. The more active you are, the more calories you burn.

So if you’re looking for a fun way to lose weight, grab some friends and start a step challenge. This is a sure way to get you and all of your friends competing against each other in a very healthy way.

Get Your Coworkers Involved

Like most people, we spend most of our day around coworkers. And if you work in an office, then you know how many bad habits are created, like poor posture, unhealthy eating, and sometimes stress.

I’ve worked in an office space before, an often times I see how miserable many people are when coming to work. For whatever reason, this is poor way to start the day, and can cause all types of health issues for any person.

So creating a challenge with your coworkers is a great way to create a healthy atmosphere. You could get a group of people together and see who could lose the most amount of weight in a certain time period.

You can also attach a prize to it, which will definitely get the competitive juices going..

Make A Bet On Yourself

If you’re someone that likes to challenge themselves to get results, then being able to self motivate will be key. Not having anyone there to push you and make sure you stay on track can be a difficult task for many, but not impossible.

When it comes to personal challenges, I found that betting on yourself is a great way to make sure you stay focused on the task. Especially when it comes to fitness, where it is very easy to find a reason to want to quit.

A great way to make sure you stay committed is by participated in a challenge where your money is on the line. Knowing that you could potentially lose money if you don’t stick to your weight loss goals, can be motivation enough.

Nothing More Motivating Than Challenges

Yes, trying to lose weight requires a lot of commitment and effort, but it doesn’t mean that it can’t be fun. Participating in challenges can be a great way to making losing weight fun and exciting.

That’s why it’s important to find the right weight loss program that provides this.

It’s also important to know that you don’t have to do it alone. Being part of a team is a great way to make sure you are held accountable for your goals. It will give you that sense of purpose to keep going and not want to let your teammates down.

But if you are someone that likes to challenge yourself individually, then finding a program where you can do that effectively will be key. Just know that it is possible to get results.  All it takes is a little motivation and effort.

What motivates me the most to lose weight is to try on old clothes that I used to wear in the past. For example, being able to wear the same dress that I used to wear on my anniversary or on my birthday in the past years. This makes me think that I have the same body so I’m OK. The whole challenge for me is around this.

I like where you are going with this. It is very true motivation is a big key to fitness and losing weight. I like the idea of competitions between friends/ family and coworkers. Sucks that money has to be involved for motivation to improve health but that will get people moving. I think you should talk about taking progress pictures also, like who has the best progress picture in a month, or 3 months. Sometimes losing weight is not the goal but to increase muscle mass? Either way i like the page keep it up

    Thanks Chris! Progress pictures are definite a good way to spice up the competition with friends and families. And I agree, losing weight may not always be the goal, but for anyone that is looking to do so, challenges can be a great way to get started.

Gaining weight is such a pain. Especially in unwanted places. Foods be so delicious we can’t help it sometimes lol. Making challenges is a great way to start because it gives us motivation to lose weight and that is something a lot of us need. Finding a purpose to do something is necessary. Friends can help as well. I started going to the gym earlier this year and having a goal was the only thing that was driving me to go. Now it is nothing to workout for 20 minutes straight. Just stick with it, you will become stronger in ways you don’t even know yet. Thanks for the post, I can totally agree.

    Thanks Kendrick! Having a goal is so important when it comes to reaching your fitness goals. Finding motivation can be so difficult, so it helps to find purpose in what you do in whatever way you can. I’m happy to hear that you are finding success when it comes to working out.

This is a great article. I am currently losing weight and agree with many of these headlines you put out. I appreciate talking about doing this with a team. I have found that I do not consistently work out if I do not have at least a partner to workout with. My wife has had the same problem for herself as well.

    Hi Austin! Many people struggle with working out by themselves, so you’re not alone. Sometimes it does help to have the workout partner to hold you accountable. Participating in a challenge may be the motivation you and your wife needs to get rolling.

I couldn’t agree more with your comment about how easy it is to gain weight but more difficult to lose it. I love the prospect of challenging myself to lose weight, but when you live in a country such as Saudi Arabia where there’s very little social life, the challenge is even more difficult.
I’ve used an online platform such as MyFitnessPal in the past to join other ladies who were looking forward to losing weight. Unfortunately, more than half of the members dropped off due to work or family commitments and could no longer continue with the challenge.

I just checked the link at the bottom of your post. The HealthyWage Wellness Programs looks interesting: people can participate in more than one challenge at a time and win a monetary prize. But I’ll have to read the full review to find out whether I could be eligible given that I live out of the US.

    It’s so easy for things to come up that can get in the way of bettering your health. Some can be worked around and others can’t. But I’m glad to hear that you are trying to make a commitment to your health because taking care of yourself is key to long term health. You should definitely take a look at the HealthyWage program, many people have had success with it.
