Official results are in, ladies and gentlemen, and we have ourselves a winner — or two, that is, one at the carrier level and the other at the individual.
Congrats to Prime Inc. for a big company trophy for the highest total weight percentage lost among its participating staff and drivers/owner-operators. With a total loss of 352.3 lbs., the company shed 15.3 percent of its total starting body weight. They must have really put on the effort in the final four weeks of the 10-week competition, given they were only at around 12 percent weight lost at the end of week 6.
Here’s a vid that runs through the final stats for the competition in dramatic fashion:

More than 3,000 pounds, or about 10 percent aggregate weight, was lost by all participating companies.
And check the transformation evident in before-after shots of the individual winner, Carl Bailey, a driver for Hirschbach Motor Lines. He lost a whopping quarter and more of his beginning body weight in just 10 weeks. Truly amazing. Congrats on a job well done!
