Members of the Naperville Fire Department are trying to shed pounds.
Eleven administration employees have accepted Fire Chief Mark Puknaitis’ wellness challenge of losing 10% of their combined weight.
“But not in a crash diet, what we’re trying to do is promote wellness and do it as a team as we do everything else in the fire department,” said Puknaitis. Try and make it a lifestyle change for some of us and change our eating habits.”
At the first weigh in the group weighed a combined 2840 pounds, which means they have to lose 284 pounds before the next trip to the scale at the end of May.
