The Lose to Win program offered by PEF Region 8’s Women’s Committee changed the way it judged winners for the spring competition that ended June 19 with a final weigh in at PEF headquarters in Latham.

Participants were paired with buddies for this round of competition and judged on their combined percentage losses of body weight.

The husband and wife team of Paul and Nina Bellinger were the biggest losers and, therefore, the top winners. They lost a combined 10.78 percent of their body weight since the initial weigh in earlier this year.

The team of Nadine Yearsley and Trevor Clark placed second with a combined weight loss of 9 percent. They were followed by third-place winners Deborah Walton and Sharon DeSilva who lost a combined 4.6 percent of their weight.

The final weigh in for this spring competition was also the initial weigh in for the summer campaign to see who can shed the biggest share of their weight. Those winners will be determined at a fall weigh in. And many of the competitors at the June event said they are looking forward to seeing how much more progress they can make this summer.
