BRANSON, Mo. -- The walk is turning into a run for some resident shedding pounds while gaining a healthier life.
“I was an athlete in high school. And of course I am far removed from that, so its easy to put on weight,” explained Sam Stauffer.
Stauffer is one of twenty people remaining in the Lighten Up for Life Challenge, hosted by Skagg’s Health and Fitness Center. The contestant who loses the most weight by February wins a cruise.
“Not everyone can be a winner in it, but we are all winners if we stick together and do it together,” said Sauffer, who is currently in first place by having lost 65 pounds.
