Quick Weight Loss Centers has revealed the winners of the $10,000 Weight Loss Challenge . Monica Speers, of Lake Worth, Florida, is the Grand Prize winner! Monica impressed the judges with her impressive physical transformation, as well as her inspirational weight loss story.
Monica lost 60 pounds following the Quick Weight Loss program , losing 38 inches and going from a size 16 to a size 4. Monica says she was inspired to lose weight for her children, explaining, "With three young children, I worried that they would have to deal with being overweight. I have learned so much about nutrition, that I am able to pass on to my children. They might not know it yet, but they are learning skills they are going to need to be healthy for life."
After losing 60 pounds, Monica says her confidence skyrocketed, and she entered and won the Mrs. Florida US Continental Pageant. "With this new responsibility, I will represent Florida, and encourage others to take their health into their own hands, and do something for themselves.

Second runner up, Dr. Maureen Campbell from Coral Springs, lost 28 pounds and says, "As a physician I have an innate need to help others. I teach and guide patients to care for their bodies, yet I never took the time to do the same. Now when I look at my transformed body, I am amazed how toned I am without exercising and sometimes feel that this can't be possible in such a short period of time."
Third runner up, Kevin Kerns from Palm Springs, lost 100 pounds in only 21 weeks.
