Greatest Losers share weight loss secrets

(Continued)

Ada —

“Snacks would be almonds.”

This approach, combined with walking, helped her lose a total of 44.2 pounds over the 13-week contest period.

Witt’s total loss over the 13-week contest was 59.8 pounds.

“I grew up playing football. I was a lineman - that size of a person,” Witt said. “After you graduate from college you go sit behind a desk and start packing it on.”  

Witt is a computer programmer for the Chickasaw Nation, as is his wife, who works in a separate division. They have one daughter. He said his wife encouraged him along the way. “It wouldn’t have been nearly as possible if she wasn’t supportive of what I was trying to accomplish,” he said.

Ingle is a receptionist at Legal Shield and has lived in Ada 42 years. She also got support from her family. She and her husband have three children and eleven grandchildren. Her husband works at Dart.

Each contestant won $500 for being the greatest male and female losers.
