WHAT a result! Our Weigh Forward competition is off to a fantastic start.

In just one week our contestants have shed 106lbs between them.

That’s an astonishing average of almost 9lbs per person in the first seven days of the competition.

And one competitor alone – Tony Mann – has slimmed down by 1st 3lbs, making him the person to lose the most weight in week one.

But every one of the Weigh Forward competitors has done well in the early stages of the challenge run by the Hartlepool Mail in conjunction with Tavistock Leisure and personal trainer Steven Smith.

The very least that any of our contestants has lost is 4lbs.

The weight loss challenge will eventually see one person win a hotel stay and one-to-one personal training for two months.

And for one runner-up, a month’s supply of personal training is the fantastic offer.

Steven admitted: “It’s pretty incredible for a first week of results.

“This is the week when they are going to lose the most weight because their bodies are full of fluid as they have not trained for a long time.

“They have done brilliantly and they are all getting on so well.

“They are having a good laugh but this is just a little taste so far of what lies ahead. The training is going to get harder.”
