SHREVEPORT, LA (KSLA) -

The Knock It Off Team is half way through their 12 week weight challenge.  Six weeks ago KSLA News 12 selected 12 people to ditch the excuses and get moving toward a healthier lifestyle.  Monday night, the team danced off hundreds of calories with fitness expert, Patrick Mosley from Mosley's Movements. 

After 45 minutes of sweating off the calories, the Knock It Off Team walked away soaking wet.  Mosley's Movements specializes in Cardio Hip Hop, which mixes boxercise, kick boxing, and dance.  Mosley's Movements owner, Patrick Mosley has witnessed the weight fall off of his clients. Mosley says, "Exercise is great for your heart, it's great to build muscle to support joint and bone density and get rid of toxins."   

The Knock It Off Team has spent the past six weeks learning how to make smart choices when it comes to food.  Since week two, they've been incorporating exercise.  They had no idea what was in store for them when they entered Mosley's Movements.  Team Member Marsha Woolf-Barnett says she felt like she burned 1,000 calories from the work out.

Mosley teaches his clients portion control, calorie count, and exercise.  They are the same principles LSU Health Nutrition Specialist, Dr. Dennis Wissing has been stressing and it seems like it is paying off for the group.

Woolf-Barnett says, "I am losing it slow 1-2 pounds per week and I feel like because I am doing it different and I'm taking my time,  I'm not competing to lose 100 pounds in a month and  I am taking it slow and I really feel like I can hold off the weight this time."

Team members still got a chance to weigh in.  LSU Public Health student and team leader,  Lori Panu has been overseeing this part of the challenge.

Several of the team members had other obligations and couldn't make the work out, so we don't have a total loss for the group for this week; however, the part of the team that did weigh-in had either a small loss or maintained their weight. The group remains at 98 pounds lost.
