The 50 Million Pound Challenge takes a community-based approach that provides members with free resources at 50millionpounds.com, including a 30-day diet plan, online journal, personal weight and activity trackers, and interactive support system needed for long-term success. The 50 Million Pound Challenge is free thanks to State Farm®, whose agents provide free information about the Challenge to their communities, and who are also losing weight as part of the growing community of Challengers.

Challengers across the country have had life-changing experiences achieving their share of the weight loss. Craig Nash of Chicago, IL, lost 199 pounds. Charmen Daley of Orlando, FL, lost 127 pounds. Kenya Morgan of Salisbury, NC, lost 70 pounds. “I knew that I wanted to be there for my husband and children and they deserved to have me at my best. There is no greater motivation than that,” Morgan said.
