"To come to that point where you realize you need to change and you need to get back into exercise and as soon as you can get past that point, you're willing and ready to do what it takes to lose the weight and get back into life," said Jim Wilhelm, weight loss challenge winner.
The exercise program was designed by a medically trained physical therapist and tailored to body type.
