It’s time to announce the Field House Fitness Center’s Best Loser.

Jason Haser won the title by losing 68 pounds in just three months. Being a natural competitor, he thought joining the contest would give him the motivation he needed to get back in shape.

"I just did a lot more cardio and the weight lifting I did was more low weight higher reps to build up the endurance and just continued the weight loss through the higher metabolism," said Haser.

He ate 1,500 calories a day and only drank water or juice. He said the first month is the most difficult, but once you get through that, it becomes a lot easier.

"Once you start losing the weight there’s a lot more incentive to not eat the bad stuff because you know how hard you worked to lose it," said Haser.

He won $1,000, a tirp to Cancun, along with several other prizes. He plans to continue working out and hopes to lose another 40 pounds.
