One word perfectly sums up the first week weigh-in at the Extreme Brickover 4 Couples Weight Loss Challenge.
And that word is... WOW!!!
The six couples vying for cash and prizes valued at well over $20,000 dropped a total of 123 pounds after just 7 days of eating delicious Diet-to-Go meals and working out at a Brick Bodies/Lynne Brick's gym.
That's an amazing average of 20.5 pounds per team and an impressive 10 pounds per competitor!
The eventual winners will be judged by the "% of Weight Lost" rather than simply by total number of pounds lost.
So, after one week, the team of David/Valerie (pictured above) sits atop the rankings. They lost a total of 26.0 pounds which boils down to 5.48% of their total weight lost.
Great job, guys!
The results for the rest of the field:
2nd Place: Ty/Shubhika, 5.03%, 24.6 lbs.
3rd Place: John/Maleena, 4.92%, 25.8 lbs.
4th Place: Sam/Julia, 3.75%, 16.8 lbs.
5th Place: Kevin/Rosalind, 3.56%, 21.4 lbs.
6th Place: Jayme/Merissa, 2.03%, 8.4 lbs.
