How Does The Countdown to '21 Challenge Work?


The following activities are all proven to help people lose weight in a healthy way

You don't have to do them all, but the more you include the more successful you're likely to be, in the shortest time

You get 1 stamp for each activity, every day you complete it

Collect at least 121 stamps, before the end of 2020, to lose those pounds and gain your medal

The Stamps

Stay within calories for the day

Get a stamp for each day - the more you get, the more you'll lose

Burn extra calories

One stamp for each day you do 20+ mins cardio (brisk walking counts) try for 5, or more!

Record your weight loss

A stamp for each time you record a loss of at least ½lb or ¼kg, weigh-in often to get more stamps 😉

The easy way to eat less calories

Fruit and veg is almost all low calorie, eat 5 portions in a day to get your stamp

Fire up your muscles

Stength exercise builds muscle - which burns extra cals and improves shape, 15+ mins for a stamp

Record your inch loss

Record at least ½inch or 1cm loss, 1 stamp for each day inch loss is recorded, get your measurements in!

Alcohol free day

Alcohol has loads of calories, so if you drink less you can eat more, try at least a few days a week

High protein day

Protein preserves lean mass when you're losing weight, get 20% of cals from protein for a stamp

High fibre day

Fabulous fibre fills you up for longer and is good for gut bacteria, 24g in a day gets you a stamp

Make a Note

Noting stuff gives you insight on how things affect progress, 1 note in a day gets you a stamp

Record a size drop

Get a stamp when you record a drop in size, you should get at least one during this challenge

Give and get support ...

... and a stamp for sharing your thoughts, or answering someone, on the challenge board

Keep going to see how many stamps you can gain, and pounds you can lose, by 31 Dec
