The nine week southern Riverina Lifestyle Challenge is now past the half way mark and so far the contestants have lost over a combined 50kg.November 22, 2012 4:14am
A version of the popular Biggest Loser initiative, the aim is to set southern Riverina residents on a path to a healthier lifestyle.
The participants, being called weight loss warriors, include Jerilderie residents Kevin A’Vard and Michelle Hack.
From Finley, there is mother daughter duo Janette and Adrianna Morris, Kathrine Spence and Ashley Haynes.
Debbie Nichols, Lyn O’Riordan and Andrea O’Neill are the Berrigan residents taking part.
Each week contestants are weighed in and at the end of the nine week program, the person who has made the biggest change in their lifestyle wins $500 to donate back to a local charity.
The combined weight loss in this first five week shows the healthy lifestyle message is sinking in.
