Donna Miller is a personal wellness coach who runs the Weight Loss Challenges and has a total of 36 participants who lost 298 lbs in 12 weeks. More than $1,050 was paid out to the participants losing the biggest percent of body weight.

Everyone who participated in the program is a winner but the cash had to go to the biggest losers. There were also three participants who won for losing the most inches -- Bobbi Lormis, 21 inches; Nancy Wichmann, 10 inches; and Monica Hedstrom, 9.5 inches.

A new Weight Loss Challenge will begin Tuesday, July 12, and anyone interested should pre-register to ensure their place in the challenge. People love the accountability because it helps them to keep on track.

The cost for the 12-week challenge is $35. Seating is limited so call now and for more information. Call Donna Miller at 847-4720.
