For 18 weeks, all participants followed a nutritional programme devised by Kim Crundall at Balance Nutrition and had personal training sessions at their local gyms with the aim being to lose weight and embrace a new, healthy lifestyle. In return, each participant made a pledge to raise at least £500 for Rennie Grove - a charity that supports local families suffering from cancer and life limiting illnesses.
With drum rolls being tapped out on the tables, the winner from each gym was announced...
Biggest Loser, High Wycombe – Sonia Workman
Each winner receives a bespoke styling session with me, a full year gym membership, a spa treatment and a hair re-style with a local salon (all prizes kindly donated).
*Nick will transfer his haircut and styling appointments to his lovely wife Angela - well, behind every great man there's a great woman!
Here I am with the overall winner, Sonia, who, out of the 3 winners, lost the most weight - 19.4kg to be exact. That's over 3 stone in old money!
And because Sonia was the overall biggest loser, she also wins an overnight stay for two at Sopwell House, St Albans, including breakfast and the use of spa facilities.
There was also a prize for Martin Hubbard who was the biggest fundraiser raising over £1,300. He wins a spa day at Verulamium Spa, St Albans.
Well done to all the contestants, the personal trainers, Kim Crundall and of course to the amazing team at Rennie Grove who worked tirelessly to make it all happen. Director of Fundraising & Marketing at Rennie Grove, Gillian Barnett, said: “Overall, our 15 ‘biggest losers’ lost more than 150kg between them but gained a fantastic £8,000 in sponsorship. Thanks to their hard work, that could fund 400 hours of specialist nursing care in a patient’s home.”
Whilst the pictures were being taken yesterday there was one chap that didn't want to be left out. I can guarantee, that had he been one of the winners, he most definitely wouldn't have donated the prize to his wife! Such a show-off! He kept trying to get into all the pictures and kept flaunting his plumage. He would then turn around and present his bottom to us - charming!
