Scale Back Alabama

Alabama it's time to get healthy and Scale Back Alabama wants to help.

This is the third year for the state wide competition for Alabama's 67 counties. All it takes is a team of four, and ten weeks of dedication to lose ten pounds.

If you lose the ten pounds your name is put in the pot for a hundred dollar cash prize. This year Alabama native Roger Schultz, from the television show "The Biggest Loser", has been picked to lead the state in losing 500 thousand pounds.

Shultz says it can be a challenge in our state with all the southern cooking. But it's about being healthy not just losing weight.
