1st Place Woman – Won $3,000
Lost 98.8 pounds – 35.65 of her body weight
We had 157 finalists who lost a total of 3,604 pounds — an average of 23 pounds each! And more 139 people lost 5% or more of their body weight! This is very exciting for us at the Diabetes Center because the research shows that overweight individuals who lose 5-10% of their total body weight reduce their risk for Type 2 diabetes by 50%! Congratulations to all of them for making healthy lifestyle changes!
Special congratulations to all of our cash and prize winners!
