‘Just Lose It’ finalists named

CORBIN —

By Jeff Noble / Staff Writer

What  began with 134 competitors back in April has been whittled down to 20. And from that group, one will win this year’s NIBROC ”Just Lose It” contest on Aug. 10.

The top 20 finalists were chosen Saturday during the mandatory weigh-in held at Corbin City Hall.

In alphabetical order, the 20 who will go for the grand prize a week from next Saturday are: April Bowlin, Patricia Couch, Cathy Day, Les Dixon, Kelly Fore, Vicki Garrison, Heather Graham, Trina Head, Bruce Hill, Wesley Hopkins, Audrey Luker, Cheryl Mayne, Julee McIntosh, Phyllis Patterson, Carol Rains, Stacy Rains, Wilma Rapier, Clandis Smith, Jo Sallie Smith and Alda Walker.

For those 20, the road to this year’s championship will begin when their final weigh-in will take place Saturday, Aug. 10, from 10 a.m. until noon at Corbin City Hall.

According to Corbin’s deputy city collector, Roberta Webb, the Grand Prize Winner will be announced that same day between 7:30-8 p.m., during the final concert on the NIBROC Stage.

How much weight was lost as a group? When the first weigh-in was held May 4, the 78 original contestants lost 481.8 pounds during a two-week period. As the competition went on through June, the number of weigh-in contestants went down, as did the number of pounds lost. By the time of the July 13 weigh-in, there were 31 contestants who lost 71 pounds. Combining the weigh-ins every two weeks from May 4 to July 13 (but not including the July 27 weigh-in), there were 332 contestants who weighed in, with a total weight loss of 1,133.2 pounds.

This year’s event is sponsored by the City of Corbin, the Southern Kentucky Chamber of Commerce, Bluegrass Family Health, the NIBROC Festival and Baptist Health Corbin.
