TLS Winners MAWC 2014

Two dozen people took home their share of $100,000 as the winners of TLS Weight Loss Solution’s fourth TLS Find Your Fit Challenge, the results of which were announced earlier today.

TLS Weight Loss Solution – a division of Greensboro-based internet retailer Market America | SHOP.COM – presented Scott Maimone of Manlius, New York, a check for $15,000 as the 2013 Fall Challenge Individual winner, while Missi Mitchell of Maitland, Florida, and Kelly Whited of Orlando, Florida, were awarded $50,000 for winning the team challenge.*

Maimone lost more than 64 pounds over the 12-week challenge, and credits the TLS Weight Loss Solution program for improving his health.

“As soon as people ask me how I lost weight, I talk about TLS,” said of his transformation. “I believe anyone that has the drive, the support of the people around you, and a concrete plan, anyone can succeed like I did.”

Added Mitchell: “I am a single mom, and instead of making the excuse that I don’t have time to work out or prepare healthy food, I learned to plan it into each and every day. TLS has taught me a perfect balance and changed my whole life.”

The 12-week TLS Find Your Fit 2013 Fall Challenge began in August. Unlike previous TLS Weight Loss Solution challenges, the winners were selected by the general public in an online vote held on the company’s website,

“We were very pleased with the response from the public,” said Dennis Franks, Executive Vice President of Market America | SHOP.COM. “They didn’t have an easy choice, either, as all of the finalists had impressive results thanks to the TLS Weight Loss Solution system.”

Since the inaugural TLS Find Your Fit Challenge in the spring of 2012, more than 8,000 people have participated and lost more than 35,000 pounds. Over that time, TLS has awarded more than $200,000 to those who have shown exceptional results.
