How are the winners determined?

Winners are determined by the percent of body weight lost – NOT the number of pounds lost. Here’s how you figure it out:

Take the Number of pounds lost (ex. 40 lbs)
Divide by the STARTING WEIGHT (ex. 40 lbs divided by 200 = .20)
Multiply by 100 (ex. .20 x 100 = 20%)

How often do I need to weigh-in?

• In order to compete for the top cash prizes, you weigh-in once-a-month at one of the official weigh-in sites at least once during the calendar month (Feb, March, April) AND attend a final weight-in on April 21st 8-3, Bolivar YMCA, 1710 W.
