Fort Meade wants you to cut out the fat.
For the 5th straight year, the installation will hold the "Dump Your Plump" competition to encourage members of the defense community to get into shape.
Teams and individuals can register beginning Monday for the challenge, which runs from Jan. 7 to Feb. 28.
Throughout the competition, each entrant will be weighed once each week at the Gaffney Fitness Center.
Prizes will be awarded to the first, second and third place teams, as well as the first and second place winners for men and women. There will also be a special prize for the overall winner.
Last year, we profiled members of the Fort Meade Fire Department, who were among the "biggest losers."
