Default Team Name for Weight Loss Competition

My office is having a weight loss competition. By participating you earn points towards reducing your health insurance premiums, so everyone signs up whether they need/want to lose weight or not. It's teams of 3.

The three of us are all pretty normal weight (meaning, we each could lose some pounds, but we're not "fat.").

Of course we want a funny team name. Some variations of just being in it for the points ("Just Here for the Points") or of being grotesquely fat ("Disgusting to Look At", "Oprah on a Bad Day") are possible ideas.

I'm in charge of naming our team, and as such, I'll pick from the best idea posted in this thread.

Gogogogo!
