What a super idea. Research has shown that people who diet together and give each other moral and psychological support get better results. I see your problem about trying to compare who has lost most in a month to award the R100 prize. You could use the percentage of weight or cm lost as a criterion. In other words, let's say one lady weighs 100 kg at the start of the month and loses 4 kg, which would be a good loss of 1 kg per week, then her percentage weightloss would equal 4/100 x 100 = 4%. Compare this to a lady who weighs 65 kg and also loses 4 kg = 4/65 x 100 = 6.2%. So the 2nd lady has lost a higher percentage of weight and wins the prize!
Wishing you all the best with the diet group.
