When the participants in Weigh-In Erie stepped on the scale Jan. 27 to measure their combined weight loss for the first time, we were proud to announce they’d shed 204.6 pounds in the first two weeks of the program. Turns out there’s reason to be much prouder; they actually lost a combined 1,248.4 pounds. An audit of the statistics has turned up five entrants whose combined 1,043-plus pounds at the start of the contest shouldn’t have been included in the initial computation. The error is ours, and we apologize for the confusion. The amazing weight loss belongs entirely to the contestants, who have apologies to make to no one.
The next weigh in is this Sunday February 10th at Best Fitness. We can only imagine what the number will jump to then!
