If you're having trouble keeping motivated to reach your weight loss goals, perhaps it's time for a change of scenery — how would you like to move to Dubai??
The reason we ask is that Dubai has just greenlighted a new campaign to get people into shape! The idea is that for every 2.2 pounds one of their citizen loses, they get a whopping $42 in PURE GOLD. That's right!
They have a PERFECT name for it too! It's called Your Weight In Gold, and there's even a chance to win a $5,400 gold coin for losing the most weight!
You'll need to hurry up and move, though, because it's already started! It's going from July 19th to August 16th, which matches up with the fasting holiday Ramadan, because according to officials that:
"is the most appropriate season to launch such initiatives as it reminds us about many health benefits of reducing weight and encourages us to take strong steps to change our bad lifestyles."
We think this is a FAB idea, and it's a shame there aren't other areas of the world that are that rich to offer it!
Seriously, Dubai has a cray amount of money! LOLz!
Good luck everyone!
