Wow! Microsoft is 26,000 pounds lighter!


Here’s an article on the weight-management benefits we offer here. Our offering is a little different than what most other companies offer because it’s designed for people that have a BMI of over 30 and/or medical conditions related to being overweight. Almost 800 employees have enrolled and lost about 26,000 pounds total (whoah!). This isn’t a gym membership, it’s a doctor supervised, lifestyle-changing plan. I love the idea of people taking control (and let’s just say I have a little experience in making big changes in eating habits for my own health…no white stuff for me!). Plus, I am a sucker for before and after pictures.

    Awesome. I just went to the Dr. to fill out the form and faxed it in. I qualify so I’m just waiting to hear the go ahead. Wish me luck! I’m excited (especially now that one of my favorite reality shows is on…Biggest Loser).

    For a second, I thought this was going to be about reorg-related layoffs. Whew.
