A local group in Augusta, called “Big Mammas” is fighting global obesity. They meet at 8 p.m. every Thursday evening to weigh in and hold each other accountable to following their diets and exercise programs. The group of 19 ladies lost 40 pounds in the first two-month session and over 60 pounds collectively in session two. A new session began last night at the Christian Life Center, 1501 State. Shown are: front row (l-r), Melanie Jackson, Terri Todd, Christy Pray, Randa Wilson, and Robin Hallmark. Top row (l-r), Staci Todd, Karen Deaver, Glennis Svanda, and Cindy Schwemmer. For more information on joining the group, contact Cindy Schwemmer at 775-0244.
