Bainbridge -- Hundreds of people have lost thousands of pounds over the last three months in Bainbridge. Team Lean, the community's weight loss competition, had its finally weigh in Wednesday.

Twelve weeks ago nearly a thousand people signed on to compete in teams of five to try to lose the most weight.  As hard as it was, 900 of those people stuck with it.  

Bainbridge City Manager Chris Hobby is one of many success stories. "I think I'm going to be down, something over 60 pounds in 12 weeks.  So, that's pretty significant."

"Anyone that needs to lose or would like to have a weight loss, I think it's a great idea and its wonderful and I would certainly encourage other people to do it,"  says Paul Williams of Team Tub-a-Lard.

"I wanted to at least lose 20 pounds and I did over that, so I did great, I think I did good," said Sherrie Strickland of Team Sweet & Low

Before today's final weigh in, the total weight loss in the competition was an astounding 15,000 pounds.  At a Thursday ceremony, all the winners will be announced.  Organizers are thinking of taking the program statewide.
