Weight loss challenge begins soon

A local area resident launched a 12-week non-profit weight loss course September 2010 and has continued for eight consecutive challenges.

The course offers tips on nutrition and exercise, along with the flair of competition, which is popular today. So far, the WLC group has lost a total of 1,500 pounds.

Donna Miller is a personal wellness coach who runs the Weight Loss Challenge.

"People love the accountability and it really helps them to stay on track. They totally enjoy the fun atmosphere, the people, the short discussion and the online site with weekly topics shared at each class," she said.

Participants can use any weight-loss program they'd like, whether it be Jenny Craig, Weight Watchers, LA Weight Loss, Herbalife or a customized plan. Miller will work with each person to find what works best for them or if they need guidance, she can help.

The next Weight Loss Challenge will be starting Tuesday, Sept. 18, so call to pre-register. Call Donna Miller at 218-847-4720.
