The orange team is also known as the "warrior team" because they truly are the warriors of the program. This group consists of participants who have gone through the Largest Loser program in the past. They were no longer seeing the results that they worked hard for in previous seasons, and they were eager to hash away at Largest Loser again and seek those health and weight loss goals.
The warrior team regulations are similar but different from the competitive red, blue and green teams. Each week, they would attend workouts, weigh ins, and lectures. However, this team was not eligible to win the Largest Loser program as a result of the number of times they have participated in the program. Although this team did not receive formal recognition, there were two outstanding performers who achieved Largest Loser-winning numbers: Dawn Ferullo and Erica Castro.
Erica's successes are not one to overlook: 32.8lbs lighter and 16.8% total body weight lost! These figures would have put her at female Largest Loser runner up. We are so proud of her and hope she continues to take the appropriate steps in maintaining her healthy lifestyle.
3 cheers for our warriors, indeed!
