NORTH LOGAN - Michael Elder of North Logan has qualified for the finals of the TAIslim Makeover challenge, a weight-loss contest sponsored by FreeLife International.
Elder, who lost 38 pounds the contest period, has since dropped 12 more. Other contest criteria are: "Before" and "After" photos; an essay; and a public vote. The ten finalists in the international contest are vying for three all-expense-paid luxury makeover trips to Scottsdale, Arizona.
"I have gone from a 44-inch waist to a 36," Elder wrote in his essay. "My energy level is high and I feel like a new man. As a father of 12 and a grandfather of 17, I am looking forward to more years with my kids and grandkids."
To vote for Elder, go to: taislim.com/contest_voting.cfm. Voting concludes May 31.
The TAIslim Makeover is designed to promote FreeLife's TAIslim Total Body System, a clinically validated weight-loss regimen that provides products as well as diet, exercise, and lifestyle information and advice.
"While Michael's story is truly compelling, it's just one of thousands we are receiving about the success of our TAIslim System," says Ray Faltinsky, FreeLife CEO and Co-Founder. "Michael exemplifies our company's mission - to promote health, well-being, and abundance throughout the world."
