Wow, I can’t believe it’s happened already! This morning we had our final weigh in for our third Biggest Loser Boothbay competion! This time around we had over 80 people from the region sign up to compete at my church and ten weeks later the payoff was huge! Normally we go for 12 weeks, but I went a little shorter this time because of my wife’s looming duedate. 🙂 The seven pictured above are our superstars; they took home the individual cash prizes. Combined, they managed to sweat off 248.6 pounds! Tim, the guy on the left was the all around Biggest Loser with a loss of 71 lbs, which translates to a 20.5% weight loss! Incredible! Kristi (bottom right), was the female Biggest Loser with a total percentage loss of 12.49%! We also had cash prizes for the top three teams that managed to stay together until the end (we always have some drop outs – the team prizes reward the people that work together and support each other to the end). Below is a photo of everyone who won $$$ today (teams & individuals), and me in the back right!
What really blows my mind is that we’ve got a growing club of people that have lost well over 50 lbs total over the different challenges, four who have lost over 70 lbs, and our two time winner, Tom, who has broken the hundred pounds loss barrier – and he’s stayed strong in keeping it off! If you’re curious about how exactely we lose the weight, it’s all through counting calories and exercise. No gimmicks, pills, shakes or anything like that – just healthy eating and activity.
