Results are in for this year's Largest Loser

A woman from Loughborough has landed a 12-month membership at Fusion Lifestyle after winning this year's Largest Loser competition.

Donna Barnett, 50, along with 18 other participants, completed the Largest Loser programme run by Charnwood Borough Council's Active Charnwood team.

The 10-week programme saw 19 participants lose a combined 161lbs - more than 11 stone - and had an average body fat loss of 2.8 per cent each.

Donna, who lost just under a stone and a half, said: "I'd like to thank the Active Charnwood team for putting together a fun and friendly Largest Loser programme.

"I have always struggled to lose weight but going to Largest Loser has given me a real kick-start on my weight-loss journey.

"The team are very supportive and above all positive. The workouts are great, motivating and make exercise fun."

Cllr Brian Page, lead member for communities, safety and wellbeing at the council, said: "I'd like to congratulate Donna and everyone else for taking part in this year's Largest Loser programme and hope they feel better for completing it."

The Largest Loser programme took place at Charnwood College and it runs every year.

Nick Evatt, divisional sports & community development manager at Fusion said: "Firstly, massive congratulations to Donna and all of the other participants who took part in Largest Loser.

"It is a fantastic programmeth at Active Charnwood have put together and Fusion are delighted that we can support the scheme."
