Weight loss competition to hold finale, registration

LAWRENCEVILLE -- As registration for the next session winds down, participants in the most recent Gwinnett's Losing IT weight-loss program will celebrate their successes.

The finale for Gwinnett's Losing It -- a 12-week program sponsored by Start With the Inside -- will be held at 7 p.m. Sunday at the Aurora Theatre in Lawrenceville. Admission is free and the event will also be preceded by a healthy lifestyles expo, which starts at 6 p.m.

The Aurora Theatre is located at 128 East Pike Street.

Since the program's start in 2011, Gwinnett County residents have lost a total of more than 1,800 pounds. Participants attend weekly teleconference calls, weekly weigh-ins and meet once a month as a group for workout activities. Each week is focused on a lesson involving nutrition, workouts and how emotional health affects physical health.

Registration for the next edition of Gwinnett's Losing It ends on Tuesday. The program itself begins on August 6.
