I'm pleased to announce that our Seattle Sutton's 2012 Slim Down DuPage County Contest has concluded and our 10 contestants have lost a total of 355 pounds in 15 weeks! Way to go group. You did a great job. You all look awesome!
Our first-place winner is Debbie who lost a total of 37.4 pounds and 20.62 percent of her body weight. Debbie and her husband will be enjoying a trip for their 30th wedding anniversary to Riu Palace Riviera Maya in Maya Riviera, Mexico courtesy of Apple Vacations and Riu Resorts.
The second-place winner is Sandy who lost a total of 40 pounds and 19.32 percent of her body weight. Sandy is $1,000 richer thanks to Seattle Sutton's Healthy Eating.
The third-place winner is Julie who lost a total of 39.3 pounds and 18.82 percent of her body weight. Julie will be able to continue her healthy lifestyle change with a year membership to the Kroehler Family YMCA in Naperville.
This is a first! Not only do we have three women who placed as the top three winners, but the first time a woman has won one of our weight loss contests in three contests. Way to go ladies!
The other contestants all did a super job. Their results are as follows:
Together the group also decided to shed some clothing they could no longer wear and decided to donate 311 pounds of it to Family Shelter Service in Wheaton. What a wonderful and giving gesture by the group. We hope future contestants will be as giving as you all have been. Thank you!
