We've heard from "The Boss" about his weight loss goals and now it's "Big Sexy's" turn to reveal his. The star's of CMT's reality show "Big Texas Heat" and officers from the Trinity Police Department were challenged by talk show host and comedian Steve Harvey in December to lose 60 pounds each by February 1st.
Officer Donald Givens says he and police chief Steve Jones both met their goal.
"We did meet our goal actually both, our goal was to lose 60 pounds in sixty days and we had until February first to do that and actually we lost 65 a piece when that happened," Given said.
In exchange for their hard work, Givens says Harvey will travel to Trinity to talk to high school students.
"So we're actually waiting on that email from Steve that we are ready and he needs to come down here to Trinity," said Givens.
Givens also said they are waiting to hear specifics from CMT, but he believes they will begin to shoot the second season of "Big Texas Heat" in the fall.
