Bell Gardens Weight Loss Event Begins

Win for losing by taking part in the Bell Gardens Weight Loss Challenge, which begins Thursday.

The 12-week program is based on television's "The Biggest Loser." Each week, participants weigh-in and consult with the coach, who will help them along the way.

Participants pay $29. Cash and prizes go to the three who lose the most percentage of body fat at the end of the 12-week program. If participants fail to weigh-in, they pay a $5 fee, as well as a $1 fee per pound gained. These fees are added to the cash payout at the end.

The next challenge begins Thursday at 6 p.m. at the HBL Office, 7606 Ira Ave., Bell Gardens. Call Ivett at 323-974-8981.
