Losing weight on your own is much harder than shedding kilos with a supportive group, says Wellness Consultant Anita Cassidy and explains this is the reason for taking the popular Glasshouse Weight Loss Challenge to Beerwah.
‘Our Challenges have been very popular in the past’ says Anita ‘as we teach people how to make better food choices, snack sensibly, lose weight healthily and keep the weight off by maintaining healthy eating for life.”
The 8 week challenge teaches a different nutritional topic each week and while the group does learn about exercise, the meetings are primarily about making healthy food and living choices.
“Many people don’t realise that 80 per cent of achieving permanent weight loss is about nutrition while 20 per cent is exercise,” Anita said.
She says that it is the ongoing support, education and advice that really makes a difference to people in achieving their weight loss goals.
Anita’s last round of Weight Loss Challenges resulted in a massive 345kg of weight loss and the ‘Biggest Losers’ took home hundreds of dollars in cash prizes!
Previous winners, Marnie from Mooloolah and Irene from Beerwah, have said “the Weight Loss Challenge is full of great advice, information and support” and “being answerable to the scales and talking to other people provided me with the motivation to achieve my weight loss goals”.
Anita says, “It’s $39 for the whole 8 weeks and this funds the prize kitty which will be shared between the 3 people who lose the most weight and centimetres”.
The next Weight Loss Challenge starts Tuesday 9 October at Beerwah Church on the Rise Community Hall.
