Commitment paid off for folks participating in Team Lean in Thomas County.  Team "Juice Caboose" took home $1700 for losing a total of 20% of their body weight.

Christina Blanton of the team "Belly Bailout" was the top woman, losing 26% of her weight. Greg Bass of team "Flabuless" won the men's competition for his 23% weight loss.

The YMCA's CEO says he's just proud so many people followed through with the 10 week program. "That's what we want to see, we want to see people that make a commitment to being healthier and making small changes that lead to greater changes," said Tom Everett.

About 600 participants lost a total of about 10,000 pounds.
