January 12th, 2011
I can’t believe it, but a whole year has passed since the last Wednesday Weigh In, and now we’re only one week away from it coming back!
The idea is simple: over the Christmas period we all eat and drink too much. We (and when I say “we” I mean ME!) pay the price for overindulgence with a few extra inches on the waistline and a few extra pounds showing up on the scales. I agree with you, it’s incredibly unfair, but these are the facts! So, a couple of years ago Barry Snedden and I decided that the motivation we needed to have a sensible diet was weekly humiliation on air; and so the Wednesday Weigh In was born.
Every Wednesday evening after 6pm we’ll bring you a live weigh in from our studios in Markinch (and also from a different continent… but that’s a story that Barry Snedden can tell you more about!) and let you know if our weight loss is actually happening. Something new for 2011 though, is the fact that you and three of your friends, family or colleagues can take part in the weight loss challenge too. There’s even a few prizes on offer for the team with the ‘biggest losers’! You can find out more here - but registrations close on the 18th of January so you’ll have to be quick.
Even if you’re not free to listen on Wednesday evening, Ali McLaren will keep you up to date with the Team’s progress, and his own, on Saturday afternoon on the Wednesday Weigh In At The Weekend.
