2014 began with many people across Burnley and Pendle starting the New Year making that resolution to lose weight.
At Slimming World many amazing members joined groups throughout the area wanting that all important wish to get into that little black dress by next Christmas.
Well we did it across all our warm, friendly and welcoming groups during a six week challenge 585 stone has been lost, that’s the equivalent weight of 25 baby elephants.
Each and every group’s members committed to the six week challenge, raising money for local Charities and Pendleside Hospice, sponsored slims, collection boxes in group and a fantastic end of challenge social event at David Street Club, Barrowford. Pendleside Hospice were delighted to collect a fantastic donation from Slimming World Groups in Burnley and Pendle for £1,028.
Local obesity figures show that over 12 per cent of adults are on the obesity register, but in some towns this soars to over 21 per cent, twice the national average of 10.5 percent.
