The results are in! Ten weeks ago, 12 Bay and Bay Transportation truck drivers and staff members set out to compete against five other trucking companies in the TCA Trucking’s Weight Loss Showdown. In conjunction with the Lindora Clinic, the six teams set out to lose an average of 10% of their body weight in 10 weeks. The teams were competing for individual and team prizes that included $2,500 cash and other prizes.
While Bay and Bay Transportation didn’t win the top spot, our participants achieved an impressive total weight loss average of 9.3%. Our very own Jesse McGowan shed an astounding 19.9% of his body weight to clinch the 4th-place spot for individual participants. Bay and Bay also finished in 4th place in the competition. The winning team, Halvor Lines, finished 13.2% lighter than when they started 10 weeks ago. Together, all of the teams lost a total of 1,604.5 lbs.
