WELLNESS coach Sharon Collins says the Gympie Community Weight Loss Challenge is looking to grow yet again.

"Already two-thirds of the previous challengers have booked their seats," she said.

All participants in the last challenge lost weight, we also had a prize for the most centimetres lost.

"I advise people how to make better food choices, how to snack sensibly, how to lose weight healthily and how to keep the weight off by maintaining healthy eating for life. Information and inspiration without the perspiration.

"The next challenge is a crash course in getting healthy, with 10 weeks of educational topics to inform and inspire."

Ms Collins said participants agreed it was ongoing support and education that really made a difference to achieving their weight loss.

"The weekly meetings not only give you incentive and support, but they are socially interactive as well," she said.

It was a non-profit event, which could help people whether they wanted to lose 3k or 30kg, with registration monies going into prizes.

"It's only $50 for the full 10 weeks with a chance to win a cash prize," Ms Collins said.

"Last winner walked away with $400.

"It's a fun atmosphere, with great group support.

"Participants even get a regular full body-composition analysis to keep them on the right track."

The latest Community Weight Loss Challenge started yesterday at the Gympie Community Church Hall, the corner of Pine and Myall Sts.
