HEB’s Slimdown Showdown came to close this week as 24 contestants selected from all over Texas lost nearly 956 pounds collectively during the 16-week competition.
Slimdown winner Allison Spangler is a school teacher at Stevens High School in San Antonio; she lost 46 pounds during the competition.
"My life is completely different," said Spangler. "I feel fantastic and this is only my half-way point."
Spangler said the lower weight has given her more energy and a healthier lifestyle.
