"Lighten Up Onslow" winners celebrate at Belk

Posted: Updated:

A group of Onslow County women are celebrating their decision to change their lives and start living healthy.

Four women recently won the 3rd annual "Lighten Up Onslow," a weight loss competition hosted by Onslow Memorial Hospital.

Collectively they lost 132 pounds over several months. That's 16 percent of their body weight.

Wednesday they celebrated by being pampered with a makeover and brand new clothes from Belk in Jacksonville.

"I have a saying that why put off for tomorrow what you can do today. Today was a culmination of ending a process of wanting to become healthier in my life, and wanting to feel good and wanting to look good," said Vanessa Ervin, one of the winners.

The winners beat 149 other teams to come out on top. They say keeping a daily journal of everything they ate and drank was critical to their success.
