Twenty women signed up May 11 for Curves' biggest contest to date, a version of Biggest Loser, said Lora Edelman, owner of the Walla Walla and College Place operations.

The Biggest Loser turned out to be Jani Long, who lost 15.5 pounds. Altogether, participants lost 131.75. Jani received 50 percent of the entry fee for first place. Contestants chose any eating plan, but had to weigh in weekly and have measurements taken three times during the eight-week program.

They could use two get-out-of-weigh-in-free cards at their discretion, but if they missed more than two they forfeited their $20 entry fee, Lora said. "We had specialized workouts each Tuesday before weigh-in to help with that last little push. The results were based on percentage of weight loss not on actual pounds lost."

The winner received 50 percent of the entry fee and second- and third-place winners received 25 percent. Fourth- and fifth-place winners received Curves items. "The ladies were very successful," Lora added. Tami Gale was runner-up, losing 19.5 pounds; third place went to Stacy Fulgham, who lost 12.5 pounds.
