Kudos to Rev. Karen Lebacqz the individual winner (greatest percentage of body weight loss) of the Biggers Loser Challenge.
Karen lost 10% of her total body weight.
“We are proud of all those who lost weight and know it will have a positive affect on their health,” said MCDH Wellness Coordinator Donna Schuler, who administered the Challenge for the hospital.
“What Karen accomplished is truly inspirational,” Donna added.
Said Karen: “Thank you MCDH for doing the Biggest Loser challenge. I’m thrilled to be the overall winner – the Biggest Loser!—and grateful to the hospital and to the chaplains office for this team approach to losing weight. (Karen also was a member of overall winning team, The Chaplains Lite, four MCDH Chaplains who lost 53 pounds, a 6.79% reduction in their total weight) “As a cancer survivor, I know that it is crucial for me to keep my weight under control in order to reduce my chances of cancer returning. For several years, I have wanted to lose those pesky extra pounds. But it took the “team” approach to motivate me sufficiently to do it! I didn’t want to let my team down.
