Update: Federal Way's Biggest Loser

Federal Way's Biggest Loser competition is off to a good start.

Participants A'ndria Salcedo, Scott Beuthien and Kari Beuthien have already lost a combined total of almost 20 pounds in two weeks.

Salcedo lost five pounds in her first week and an additional five pounds in her second week.

"I know I will hit some pretty discouraging weeks before I get to the weight and shape I want to be in, but I am trying to establish a support system that carries me through those times so that I stay on track," Salcedo said of the program.

Scott Beuthien has lost four pounds so far in the challenge, and is also lifting more weight than he thought possible in two weeks, his mom Kari said.

Kari has lost five pounds and has started finding it easier to run.

The Mirror will continue to run periodic updates on all three of the participants as they compete in the challenge.
