Bay Mills Indian Community Takes First in Weight-Loss Competition

The Bay Mills Indian Community recently took home first place in a weight loss challenge for shedding the most weight.

Participating in Blue Cross Blue Shield of Michigan’s 12-week Win by Losing Weight Loss Challenge, 44 members of the Tribe lost 294.5 pounds, or 3.37 percent of the group’s total weight.

“I’m really proud of everyone who competed and made the effort to adopt a healthier lifestyle. Losing weight can be tough, but through the Win by Losing program, our group was able to stay focused,” said Stacey Walden, benefits administrator for the Bay Mills Indian Community, to the Sault Ste. Marie Evening News. “We hope to maintain our new, healthy habits through the holidays and look forward to the next round of competition in spring 2012.”

Blue Cross Blue Shield of Michigan launched Win by Losing in 2009 to promote healthy eating and exercise among employees. For more information about Win by Losing, visit
