    Abstract

    “I don’t suspect we lost much,” said Thomas’s Promises team captain Mario Browne of the Center for Minority Health as he anticipated this week’s midpoint weigh-in. The CMH team rose from an initial rank of 185th in the first week of the competition to 152nd after week 4. Their strategy for tipping the scales even more in their favor: Regardless of the weather, no heavy corduroys or sweaters are allowed at the weigh-in, Browne joked. Competition really isn’t high on their list of incentives, he said. “We’re not so much interested in the race; we’re more interested in the social support and the motivation to do something,” he said.
