The two collectively lost more than 150 pounds in just 10 weeks to win the “Best Loser” competition — and the grand prize of $1,000 — at Fitness Forum.
“It was pretty exciting,” said Boyer. “We didn’t pressure each other, but I think we both put pressure on ourselves to pull our own weight on the team. Each of us wanted to do a good job for the other. I wouldn’t have been able to do this well on my own.”
