ALBANY, GA (WALB) - Are you planning to slim down before swimsuit season?  If so, a little friendly competition may help you drop those unwanted pounds.    

Team Lean begins at the Albany Y next week.  Sign up is underway right now.   It's a 12-week weight loss competition for teams of two to five people.    

Every wee, you'll weigh in.       If you gain weight, you'll have to pay a dollar per pound, but if you lose weight, you could make some money!   

Last year, the top weight loss team took home $450.   The top individual got $275.

Wellness Director Mary Ganzel said, "Well, for team lean, a lot of times people do well if they're working out together in groups or if you've got a family member or friend, they're going to encourage you and they're going to make you feel more comfortable about being successful and keep you focused, so by being part of a team, research is pretty clear, you're more likely to be successful with weight loss goals than if you try to do it on your own."    

It costs $60 per person to join Team Lean.   You can sign up by calling the Y at 436-0531.    Even non-members can participate.     They can also get a mini-membership at the Y for $60 for the 12-week competition.
