Clark County teachers hoping to become 'losers'

WINCHESTER, Ky. (AP) - Twenty-eight George Rogers Clark High School teachers and staff members are on a mission to become losers.

Biology teacher Sara Stone says the group is using weekly weigh-ins and healthy competition to kick-start a weight loss effort at the Kentucky school.

Eight years ago, a group of faculty and staff members created a weight-loss competition styled after the TV show "The Biggest Loser." Recently, several teachers found themselves wanting to shed some pounds, so they decided to try the competition again.

Teacher Kelli Catron decided to participate after winning the school's original Biggest Loser competition. She has been cutting calories and trying to get in more exercise. She and Stone have mapped out a one-mile loop that they walk after school.
