      Confidence gained with weight lost

      Just three months ago the pastor at St. James Baptist Church in Baconton challenged his congregation to get healthy and in shape.

      Already, two of the members are seeing great success. Maelette Ferrell and Anthony Morman have both lost right around thirty pounds, in just three months.

      Morman says diabetes runs in his family and this challenge opened his eyes to how much he needed a lifestyle change. He says he's already feeling better but he wants to lose 70 more pounds.

      Ferrell says she is already noticing a difference as well. She has gone down two sizes and says she has a lot more energy now. But this isn't the end for her either, she says she wants to lose 100 more pounds.

      The pastor at the church says he plans on starting another Get Fit Challenge in July and hopes more members will participate.
