Keeling credits the contest with her success in going from a size 18 to a current size 10.
"For someone who's almost 60, it's incredible," she said. "It's a win-win - it has inspired some in my family to lose 10 or 15 pounds. It's contagious around the office.
"People stop me all the time and say, 'Wow, how much weight have you lost?' and 'Wow, you look great' and, geez, I feel good, too."
Keeling's journey doesn't end with the challenge.
"What I want to see happen is to start something as a follow-up so we can keep doing it," she said. "Not just a Biggest Loser, but a forever loser - to forever challenge the way you live."
The contest was inspired by the TV show "The Biggest Loser." This is the sixth contest that WVU/CAMC Memorial, CAMC Document Center in Kanawha City, CAMC Teays Valley, CAMC General, and CAMC Women and Children's Hospital have held.
