Last week the Community weight loss challenge came to the end of the latest twelve week course.

Over the weeks Sue Tonkin has lead us through the pitfalls of over eating, showing us how to eat sensibly. The course started with over twelve people, who all had reasons for wanting to shed excess weight. The final tally of the seven at the final weigh in was a combined weight loss of over six stone and 71.5cm. Well done to Anne Millea who was the biggest loser and won first prize. A new session will begin in september.
