John Thompson, having dropped 11 percent of his body mass, is the winner of Brenau’s 2016 Weight Loss Challenge.
He credits his weight loss to both healthier eating and a rigorous daily workout. Throughout the competition, he completed 706,281 steps – which evens out to nearly five miles a day.
Thompson’s reward was $500. Second-place finisher Brooke Pattillo (10 percent body mass loss) received $110 and third-place finisher Nichole Rawlings (8 percent body mass loss) received $50.
