Decatur – Central Illinois' Biggest Loser Competition kicked off this weekend, with the contestants' first weigh-ins.
30 contestants will spend the next 12 weeks eating well and getting fit, with the help of trainers at the Decatur Athletic Cub, Snap Fitness in Springfield, and the Fitness Center in Champaign.
For each contestant the end goal is the same, better health. Each person, including Chania Mickiel, has their own reason to get in better shape. "I have a five year old that's full of energy. When you can't keep up with her, it's a problem."
Tomorrow night at five you will get a chance to meet all the contestants as they start their journey with Central Illinois' Biggest Loser.
