I have set everyone the goal to loss 10Ibs (including yours truly) in 15 weeks, the final weigh is on Wednesday 1st December, and the prizes will present to all those who reached the goal, and the winners the follow Wednesday 8th December. The winner will receive a 6 months membership to Waterside Inn Leisure Centre courtesy Waterside Inn- a Plaque and £250 to their nominated Charity. On Wednesday 22nd September (Gait Analysis night/ Health Fair)we will have someone along demonstrate Health Eating etc. But basically everyone knows what they have to do to lose weight "cut the garbage oot" between meals and get more active courtesy of Peterhead Jogscotland. We will keep you posted on how challenge is going over the coming weeks, and if you have any comments let us know. Remember that slogan if over the coming weeks "CUT THE GARABAGE OOT" I certainly will be!! Remember you can get weighed as often as like, however we encourage you to get weighed on a Wednedsay night as its more practical then we have much more room to work. Since we started the Charity Weigh Loss Challenges our group has lost over 80 stones on average the group have lost about 20 stones, let make this one a record breaker!!
