CAPAC — It's not quite like the tv version, but residents looking to shed some pounds can take part in a local spin-off of the Biggest Loser.
Capac Chiropractic and Dr. Todd Grubb are hosting their own 'Biggest Loser Challenge.' Whoever loses the most pounds could also walk away with a heavier wallet.

The first weigh-ins began this week and the competition runs through April 21.
Each person who participates pays $10 the first week and $5 each subsequent week's weigh in. Contestants who gain weight will have to fork over a dollar a pound on top of their weekly dues.
Contestants will need to step on the office scale at the same day and time each week. The winner will be determined by weight loss percentage, that is, their starting weight will be divided by their final weight. A second place winner will also be awarded.
Capac Chiropractic will host an informational meeting about the Biggest Loser Challenge program this Saturday from 11 a.m. to 12 p.m. at their offices.
