The Eagle River YMCA’s new ‘Y Weight’ weight loss challenge started March 4. Since then, the 14 participants have consistently lost about two pounds a week. Recently, the top loser lost 3.7 percent of her total body weight.
The Y offers professional weight loss guidance through personal training and affordable gym membership.
