Longview Weight Loss Contest Ends

   There's a new champion in the battle of a quirky contest in the fight against fat in Longview.

   Mechanic Mike Amber is the winner of Patterson Nissan's "Take the Weight Off" competition. He lost 24 pounds over a 60 day period.

   20 employees, all men, entered the contest back on January 7th. Each was weighed-in every Friday, to see who was making progress.

   The 2nd annual event awards a cash prize to the man who drops the most weight, and hopefully along the way helps many of the contestants get into better physical condition.
