Charity Weight Loss 2010/2011

We are really proud of our latest Charity Weight Loss Challenge Winners. Billy Lovie lost 3 stone 2ibs, Gavin Smith lost 2 stone 9ibs and Elaine Weir lost 1 stone 3ibs. The Peterhead jogscotland Charity Weight Loss Challenge lasts 20 weeks. All challengers donate £5 at the start of the challenge and this money goes to the winner’s nominated charity Billy this year chose McMillan Cancer Support to get the money. Since we started the Charity Weight Loss Challenge we have raised over £1300 for charity. One of the leaders does the weigh in every week, however it totally up to the participants how often they get weighed, some get weighed every week, and some once a month. All information is keep confidential, however every now and then information is given to the group (no names) on total weight loss and the biggest weigh loss to date, to encourage the participants to keep going. All we do is encourage our group to eat healthily, cut out the rubbish and get more active by following the jogscotland programme. We also take in an expert during 20 weeks to give them advice on healthy eating, other than its totally up to them to manage their own eating habits, but the results speak for themselves!! Our next Charity Weight Loss Challenge starts on Monday 17th January 2011, what better way to start the new year by join Peterhead Jogscotland and our Charity Weight Loss Challenge, and lose some weight whilst getting fit
