    Yes, I joined the challenge.
    It was not particularly motivating - the idea of winning a gift card is nice, but it's too easy. 40 meals in 30 days is too simple to hit. Make it harder so people that are really working at it have a better chance of winning and I might be more motivated, but I logged every meal in that time regardless.
    I also think challenges should be accessible from the site. I log most of my meals on the app, but when it comes to exploring MFP and interacting with others, I do 99% of that on the site.

    Yeah, I joined and fully completed it. I'm curious to see who wins. It would be more motivating for me to see that people actually received the prizes. As it is, at least I get a few fun badges 😊

    No. Didn’t see it. But looks like it is only for USA. I’m Canadian.

    Generally speaking, I don’t find these sorts of things help me.

    I joined the challenge and invited many of my MFP friends to join me. Several did. And it was fun doing it together. We all consistently log in so we all finished in record time and were left with nothing to do for the last half of the month. That was a bummer. Since we are all consistent loggers I can't say it motivated us to log more, we do that for each other. We like lotteries and prizes, it would be nice to win but with so many participants the odds are astronomical . Maybe you could give away premium memberships as prizes too and have more than just one prize for thousands of people. We all just joined the new Silk Ultra challenge today, I think there should be more overlap so you don't have to wait around for 1/2 a month for the new challenges to start. Or have multiple challenges going at the same time.

    Just a couple of suggestions on the challenges in general
    1- Make them available online as well as on the app not everyone uses the app
    2- If you notice many people have finished start a new challenge I finished 2 weeks ago and now I am bored waiting for a new challenge
    3- Make the stakes higher - 20 is not a lot of meals to log in a 30 day period
    4- Have more than one challenge a month or have them simultaneously

    thank you

    I joined but unfortunately did not win. I love contacts like this because it keeps me motivated to enter my meals and stay accountable. Just wish I won too. Although, technically I won by staying solid. Would love friends to help me thru this journey. I've done pretty good solo, but some accountability Buddys would be cool.

    It would be nice to know who wins these challenges. Like others I find it easy because of daily logging.

    English girl/ qualified dental hygienist.. can I get your opinions please...
    I truly believe that healthy lifestyle changes are not objective but should encompass all aspects of personal physical and mental care.
    would you welcome tailored support scheme formulated by you and your hygienist regarding oral health, diet advice and tailoring your specific oral hygiene routine including 1-1 Guidance as and when needed, periodontal therapy and then tooth whitening.
    If you went to your hygienist and she proposed this... how would you feel?

    Can you please add challenges for people in other places like the UK so we can get the full benefit of the app

    This is so true - a challenge we actually can't join is a bit of a waste of time
