TIE! Slim to Win & Plump Fiction Split $15K!

Keep in mind that challenges are great tools and a lot of fun, but it takes work to lose weight. Individual results vary.

The St Elizabeth’s $10,000 Team Challenge came to a close just two weeks ago, and we’re excited to finally announce our winners! This was a close competition, with two teams tieing for first place, and third coming in right behind them! It was a fight to the finish but in the end, we have our three top teams!

We won’t delay any longer! The winners are…

The Weighty Bunch – 3rd place/$3,000 Winners!



Percent Weight Lost: 16.59%
Total Pounds Lost: 177 pounds

Initially intrigued by the idea of winning $10,000, this mixed team of family and friends knew they needed to lose weight and thought the challenge would be a great motivator to get them started.

They talked daily via texts, phone calls and emails, and even working different shifts, were even able to get together once in a while – sharing meals and tips, exercising together and having morning “wake-up” calls with one another, to make sure they were working out even if they couldn’t be doing it together!

Once they started seeing the weight come off, their motivation shifted from cash to the results they were seeing and feeling! Dropping almost 180 pounds, they started getting comments and compliments from other, driving them to achieve even more.

They’re ready to keep the weight off, and continue to help one another be successful in maintenance. “It’s really hard to lose weight, but knowing we had a chance to win $10,000 really helped us stick to a healthy lifestyle.”

Great job, team The Weighty Bunch!


Slim to Win – 1st place (tie)/$7,500 Winners!



Percent Weight Lost: 16.59%
Total Pounds Lost: 205 pounds

Team Slim to Win is made up of family and friends from Sparta, KY. They heard about the challenge through Team Captain Shawn’s employer – St. Elizabeth Healthcare. They were already starting to work on their own weight loss, so when the opportunity came along, they jumped on it.

They found the accountability between the group was one of the most motivating factors, and once they saw they were in the top 10 (“honestly we never really expected that!”) and saw the changes in their bodies and on their scales, they became unstoppable!

They got together daily for exercise and supported one another through tough days. Their hard work really shows through in their before/after photo and in their combined loss of over 200 pounds!

Congratulations team Slim to Win! You did it!


Plump Fiction – 1st place (tie) /$7,500 Winners!

Plump Fiction


Percent Weight Lost: 16.59%
Total Pounds Lost: 185 pounds

This family from South Lebanon, Ohio really pulled together when it came to this challenge! Their motivation: the beach! “Our family has a tropical vacation scheduled and we didn’t want to scare other beach-goers!”

Originally enticed by the allure of the money, within a few weeks their shrinking waistlines ended up being the biggest reward. The competition and the team factor helped keep them on track, “No one wanted to be the one who let the team down and be forced to find a whole new family :)”

As a family, they were able to get together often. One team member made healthy, portioned meals for others when they struggled, and they even made an outing together for their weigh-ins! They plan to continue to help one another, even joining the Holiday Maintain Don’t Gain challenge together, to make sure they stay on track through the Holidays!

Their hard work paid off, losing a combined total of 185 pounds, winning the $7,500 prize, and keeping fellow beach-goers safe across the planet!

Here’s to team Plump Fiction, congratulations!
