Weight Loss Programs


Healthiest Loser is an independent program that BCPS offices, departments and schools can adapt according to their unique needs and timelines. Team BCPS has shed more than 15,000 pounds thanks to the program, which uses regular weigh-ins in a friendly but competitive team environment to drive results.

The program is based on recommendations from the Center for Disease Control (CDC).  The program uses four basic categories to encourage healthy weight loss.

  • Journaling/Tracking
  • Calorie Reduction
  • Healthy Eating
  • Physical Activity

Healthy Wage is a nationally recognized program that was developed in collaboration with the Mayo Clinic and the University of Pennsylvania. The program, offered annually in January, provides employees the chance to win $10,000 for losing weight by teaming up in small groups.  Employees can sign up on their own, or with coworkers, friends, and family, to compete to lose weight.  Employees commit to the challenge with a total non-refundable fee of seventy-five dollars ($75).  The team that loses the greatest percent of weight (healthy restrictions are in place) in the challenge wins $10,000, 2nd place wins $5,000, and 3rd place wins $3,000.
