Dang, dropping weight does pay off! LOLz
After Jordan Teuscher heard that he could win $10,000 if he convinced his family to drop a whole mess of weight with him to win the HealthyWage challenge, he decided to put his bad habits behind him and got motivated to get healthier!!
Teuscher, however, wasn't an extremely overweight guy, but he was having trouble with his cholesterol and weight.
So after he got his uncle, Jon Whicker and sister, who had auditioned for The Biggest Loser, but didn't get in to join him… his mom and dad also got on board and they decided to call themselves Will Work for Less Food.
For three months, Jordan's fam didn't eat sugar, cut back on carbs and did all the exercise they could do, and at the end of the competition, they dropped a combined 255 pounds, which is 16 percent of their body weight, and won the $10,000 prize!!
Teuscher lost 47 pounds, and he revealed that he couldn't "feel healthier [and] happier, he said:
"It's been nice to have it off — to be able to fit into your old clothes, feel comfortable in groups."
If only we could all win money after dropping weight. Now that would be a dream!!!
