Idle woman to receive award for 17-stone weight loss
8:00am Monday 30th September 2013 in News
A member of Eccleshill Gym will be presented with a B-active award by Bradford Council after losing more than 17 stone in three years.
The dramatic weight loss has been life changing for the 47-year-old, giving her the confidence to return to work and do activities she would never have dreamed of taking part in three years ago.
She will be presented with her B-active award by John Coulton, Bradford Council’s facilities manager, at Eccleshill Pool on Tuesday.
Dawn weighed 37 stone at her heaviest and, as a size 36, could not buy clothes in any of the high street shops. She suffered from weight-related health problems, including high blood pressure and severe asthma.
Her fitness programme now involves a mixture of swimming, cardio vascular and resistance training.
