people. The school offered to pay the entry to the program and offer a few
small incentives for the participants. Thirty of the 48 Exeter-Milligan faculty

All of the participants can log into the Live Healthy Nebraska to record their goals and progress. Each week they enter any weight loss and their exercise minute totals in the LHN website on a private site. The site then combines the teams total weight loss and exercise time so that the teams can compare their progress.
