“Participation has increased every year, and the community seems to anticipate each new contest,” said Janet James, Director of Human Resources and Compliance for Trigg County Hospital.
The first weigh-ins will be from 7 – 9 a.m., 11 a.m. to 1 p.m. and 4 – 6 p.m. on Monday, Jan. 7, at Curves, a new location this year, and the contest will end on Monday, April 1. James says that as in previous years, Participating teams can go on-line each week and post their weight loss on the local Biggest Loser Facebook page, where they will have a chance to win a case of water from Culligan.
How the prize money is distributed this year is different. There will be a “Maintainer” prize this year for the person who weighs in on Jan. 7 with a weight that is the same as or less than their weigh-out weight last April, said James.
“They will continue to maintain/lose through April 1, with a prize awarded for the individual with the most percentage of loss among those ‘maintaining’ individuals,” James said.
