The Grand Prize winner, a Diet.com member named Brittany, lost 15 pounds during the Challenge. Brittany, a proud Air Force wife and mother, told Diet.com, “I have never been dedicated to losing weight as much as I have with this Challenge. The dieters here are so supportive and they really want to see you succeed.”
“I didn't have any motivation to lose weight before joining Diet.com, but the Challenge gave me the strength to start my journey, and I've actually stayed on track the entire six weeks,” Brittany tells Diet.com in the testimonial she wrote at the end of the Challenge.
