Cape Girardeau, MO -- One month, dozens of workouts and countless calories cut later, our Weight Wars team weighed in Tuesday night. There are four teams battling to win the grand prize given to the team that loses the most weight. If the competition were to end today, the winners would be team number team. Over the course of this competition, our teams have lost a total of 364 3/4 pounds.
OJ is always coming up with new ways to keep his team interested. Not long ago, he sent an e-mail to all of his team members telling them to meet at the gym at 7am on a Saturday morning. They were told to dress warmly and that's all. When they arrived at the Healthpoint they stretched out and headed outside. OJ and Stacy were taking them on a little run. A run that would take them downtown, up the Common Pleas Courthouse steps-twice-and then back to the gym. Like the troopers they are, the team took off. The time was 7:15 am, the temperature 28 degrees. OJ had the "Rocky" theme blasting from a boom box as the team mounted the steps. Michelle Prichard is on the team and thought that running up those steps together bonded the team even more. The round-trip run that was supposed to last 40 minutes took an hour and a half. But no one cared.
