Bainbridge--  Team Lean, a community weight loss challenge has been underway for three weeks. 

Teams of five compete to see who can lose the most weight in a twelve week period. Nearly a thousand people in Bainbridge are involved.  So far the results are astounding.

"So far we've lost three tons of weight, which is wonderful. The first week we lost over 4,000 pounds, the second week we lost a little over 2000 pounds," said Cathy Willis, a Team Lean Organizer.

Results for this week's weigh in won't be tabulated until Friday, but hopes are high. Organizers say most of the restaurants in town have made special menus for people in the community participating in Team Lean.
