Battle Bulletin Week of June 16 - McGohan Brabender Powered By Docstoc
					Welcome to the Second Annual Greater Cincinnati Battle of the
Business Bulge!! The Battle kicks off this Wednesday, June 18th. Are YOU

This is your first Battle Bulletin of the summer! Be sure to forward it on to
all of your Battle participants. Remember, Battle Bulletins will come to your
inbox weekly and will contain feature articles, diet and exercise tips, and the
Top 5 “biggest losers” standings after each weigh-in period has been

Remember, the kickoff day is the day that everyone will check their starting
weight so they may track it from now until August 13th. Whether your
company has a scale in a central location where everyone privately weighs
themselves, or whether they do it at home, everyone needs to know what
number they are starting with. (Once again, all weights are to be kept

From there, on the first weigh-in (July 2), all participants will check weight
again. They will record how many pounds they have lost over that first two
weeks on a weight tracking card, and hand it in to their Coordinator. Their
Coordinator will tally the total pounds lost by all participants on their Weight
Tracking Spreadsheet from Battle Headquarters. They will then enter that
total and their Organizational ID into the Pounds Lost Submission Page.
McGohan Brabender will track it from there! This process is repeated each
weigh-in period.

If for some reason you have not received your Organizational ID via e-mail, or
if you have forgotten or lost yours, just e-mail Joanna Burley at

Look for video Battle notifications on the jumbo-tron in Fountain Square—
videos are now running! Dr. Derek will appear there shortly with his health
and wellness tips for 2008. Also be sure and check the Business Courier for
updates nearly every other week! And if you somehow miss an e-mail
Bulletin and want to know the most recent Top 5 “biggest losers,” check back
at Battle Headquarters. The standings for the Top 5 are posted after each
weigh-in period and Bulletins are archived for easy access.

If they have not already, Organizational Coordinators will be receiving a
special gift in the mail, so keep your eyes peeled! We appreciate all that
you do!!

And while it’s true that the grand corporate wellness prize is a $5,000 gift from
Humana, keep in mind the smaller rewards that are bestowed upon the
organization that has averaged the greatest weight loss for each weigh-in
period! McGohan Brabender provides smaller gifts for those who are working
hard to be number 1 throughout the entire campaign.

Get your creative thinking caps on and make this fun for yourself and
your organization! We’d love to hear the ideas you’re coming up with for
your unique Battle! Submit them to Joanna Burley at and they may be featured in upcoming
Business Courier articles!!
Finally, don’t forget to mark your calendars for a special Wellness
Roundtable to be held at the Business Courier offices on Wednesday,
July 16th, for Battle participants only. A more formal invitation is to

But for now-- good luck, and GET READY TO BATTLE, CINCINNATI!!!!!
