Gwinnett's Losing It to host competition finale

LAWRENCEVILLE -- Twenty contestants have lost a total of 339 pounds as the "Gwinnett's Losing It" weight-loss competition prepares to host its celebratory finale.

Today is the final weigh-in for the 12-week competition sponsored by local trainer Sandi Porter and her Start With the Inside program, which focuses equally on responsible exercise, good diet and mental and spiritual health.

Next Wednesday, Nov. 9, the hard work will all be shown off in front of the public and contestants' friends and family. The event held at 550 Trackside -- 550 N. Clayton St. in Lawrenceville -- will start with a 6 p.m. health fair before the 7 p.m. finale.

Last year's event featured videos of training and emotional interviews with contestants.
