Scales will tell the final story

COMPETITOR and organiser of the Grafton Biggest Loser competition, Margaret McKenna is looking forward to seeing the results people have seen at the final weigh-in today.

Margaret said the program was beneficial to her own weight loss and she enjoyed meeting like-minded people who turned into a support and motivation.

“The free training sessions at Memorial Park that were sponsored by Clarence Valley Council were particularly beneficial.

“We had about 30 people attend the afternoon training sessions and 15 people to the morning sessions,” she said.

“Because the sessions were at set times and you got the people who were training so you felt more obligated to go, there was more of a commitment to the group than going in on your own.”

Many people have seen success through being involved in the program, so there is not only talk of holding another biggest loser next year, but holding a second round of the competition later this year.

“We have discussed with the people who are involved about having another round.

“We think that it will help with motivation. Because the program takes a slow and steady approach,” she said.
