Big Losers Win Weight Loss Challenge

Thirty people lost a combined 259.6 pounds while participating in Shapewatchers 12-week weight loss challenge. Participants ranged from 11 to 83 years of age. The top three winners lost 66.4 pounds combined. The challenge advised of proper nutrition, food choices, and also encourages exercise and a healthy life style.

The first place winner lost the "baby weight" from her nine-month-old daughter. Second and third place winners were an aunt and niece duo. Since the introduction of the program, Shapewatchers participants lost more than 710 pounds. The contest is based on percentage of body weight loss which equalizes the odds for men and women, big or small.

Shapewatchers' next weight loss program and challenge will start Wednesday, August 13. The event will take place at Shapewatchers, located at 114-04 Beach Channel Drive, suite 6A and is offered in two sessions 1 p.m. or 7 p.m. According to one coach, "each person will receive personalized weekly one-on-one coaching. Each week participants will weigh-in and consult coaches, who will help them with suggestions for reaching an ideal weight."
