The Taylorville Memorial Hospital Foundation just completed the 32nd session of the Lose-to-Win Challenge. It is a 14 week challenge that encourages its participants to lose weight, and keep track of how much they lose. Janelle Cornell, the Clinical Dietitian for Taylorville Memorial Hospital, says that thousands of people have come through the program since it began in 2008.
The last 14 week session had 130 total participants, and they lost a combined total of 1,022 pounds. Since the challenge began in 2008, the total weight loss is up to 54,844 pounds.
The next 14 week challenge began yesterday, but Cornell says that it is still not too late to get involved at 824-1840.
