Mother loses a third of her body weight in fundraiser
A MOTHER is urging anyone struggling with their weight to take part in a charity’s Biggest Loser challenge after shedding five-and-a-half stone since taking part in the competition herself last year.
Kelly Perryman, 40, from Chesham, said signing up for The Hospice of St Francis’s Biggest Loser is ‘the most amazing, life-changing decision’ she has ever made.
Speaking as the hospice launches its search to find 20 participants to take part in its 2015 fundraising challenge, which starts after Christmas, the mother-of-two said: “I can’t recommend it highly enough.
“It’s not just a diet, it’s a lifestyle change and as a result, I’ve lost a third of my body weight – I’m the lightest I’ve ever been in my adult life.”
Now in its fourth year, the competition has seen more than 60 participants from across Bucks and Herts take up the 12-week challenge to lose pounds, whilst raising them at the same time for the hospice.
Mrs Perryman, who was the challenge’s top fundraiser last year raising £3,058, lost two-and-a-half stone during the challenge but has now gone on to lose five-and-a-half-stone.
She added: “I couldn’t have completed the challenge without the support of Harriet at the hospice, all the amazing staff at Sportspace and all the inspirational group of fellow ‘losers’ I did the challenge with.”
Everyone who participates in the challenge receives 12 weeks Sportspace membership, plus a personal training and a nutritional plan.
