You might think his job as manager of the Lake Barkley Fitness Center would make it easy for Chris Scott of Cadiz to stay in shape. But part of the job means sitting behind a desk, and just like everyone else who parks in front of a computer screen for a significant part of the day, Chris noticed a gradual increase in his weight over the years.

He also noticed that chasing after his two- and three-year-old children left him out of breath, not a good sign for someone who was supposed to help motivate others to get into shape.

When the local Biggest Loser Challenge began, Chris’ wife Katie urged him to sign up.

“It was time,” he said. “I needed something to motivate me, and I’m very competitive. When I start something, I like to finish it.”

When he and Katie began the challenge, Chris weighed 214 pounds. He set his goal at 190 and went to work on a 5K training program, spending 30 minutes, three times a week on the treadmill. The bigger change, though, came with his eating habits.
