The Waskaganish “weight-off” competition is still going strong, and the pounds are dropping off faster than you can say “double cheeseburger and large fries”. At last count, the Band was ahead of the School Board by 2.69 pounds.

In total, the School Board has lost an average of 3.91 pounds and the Band has lost an average of 6.6 pounds. This may not seem like a lot, but keep in mind that this is the average weight loss. Gertie Murdoch at the School Board said, “Losing weight together takes away a lot of pressure and people are mostly laughing the weight off”.
