The MUSC Weight Management Center currently has 2 Lunchtime Losers (10-week, team-based, weight loss) competitions in progress. One is a combination of in-person and virtual (i.e., online in real-time) participants; the other is completely virtual. We'd like to share their progress so far...

After 7 weeks, our in-person and virtual "Lunchtime Losers" class has lost 173.8 lbs with an average weight loss of 3.7%! Still 2 more weeks to go.

After 5 weeks, our virtual "Lunchtime Losers" class has lost 55.7 lbs and an average weight loss of 2.2%! They still have 4 more weeks.
