Winner declared in Biggest Loser Titan Edition

QUINCY, Ill. (WGEM) - Are you up for the challenge? 95 employees at Titan Wheel in Quincy were when they signed up for Biggest Loser Titan Edition.

The local weight loss competition kicked off in February, but on Friday, Titan announced the winner with an outside lunch. When you add up all the pounds lost by the 95 participants, more than 1,400 pounds were shed.

Justin Jackson was the big winner though. He lost almost 80 pounds and says he has a lot more energy.

"Mostly Atkins, low carb low calorie diet," Jackson said. "And like hard work and walking a lot. It's a life changer. It made it worthwhile."

Jackson says he's going to try to maintain his weight by watching what he eats, walking and working out.
