Losing weight isn't a game, but it can be easier when it's a contest.

FIT magazine is kicking off its own version of "The Biggest Loser," although our publication, not a television show, will document your progress.

The FIT Challenge will start in January, but before then, we need contestants.

FIT is seeking three people to participate in the yearlong challenge -- a middle-aged woman, a middle-aged man and a young adult. Each contestant will be provided with a personal trainer who will advise on health and diet. Every month, FIT will document your progress.

The goal isn't just to lose weight; it's to be healthier. The winner will receive a prize package, but the true gift for each of the contestants is the chance to spend one full year working on themselves with the support of readers.

To apply to be a contestant, write FIT editor Brandi Barhite at brandibarhite@sanduskyregister.com. Applicants need not write more than 500 words and should be willing to be interviewed once per month and be photographed.

Getting FIT won't be easy, but it might just be fun if you are selected.
