The event also has the added incentive of some superb prizes for the participants who lose the highest percentage of their body weight during the 5 week period week period.

Participants could weigh in from Monday 7th January at any of the following weigh in stations, and had to weigh out at the same station before midday on Thursday 14th February.

There will also be a draw for every participant who manages to raise over £100 of sponsorship for Highland Hospice, and the winner of this draw will win £200 of Marks and Spencers vouchers. Sponsorship is still coming from participants so this draw will be made in the coming weeks.
In total 171 took part in Love to Lose 2013 and it has already managed to raise almost £2,500 for Highland Hospice with more sponsorship money still to come in. This money has come from the participants registration fee, sponsorship money raised by some of the participants, funds raised from a special Love to Lose fitness class which was held weekly by Jamie Tulloch at his studio, and a £200 contribution from Café 1 who had a special healthy dish on the menu throughout the period of the competition and £1 from each dish sold was donated back to Highland Hospice.

Amanda Burt, Highland Hospice fundraiser said:
“We are absolutely delighted with the success of Love to Lose, we have almost doubled the number of participants, and it has managed to raise a fantastic amount of money for Highland Hospice. We are extremely grateful for the support from all the weigh in stations, and we would like to thank Café 1 and Jamie Tulloch for their contribution, along with Technip, Fit 4 Less and Bikes of Inverness for sponsoring the prizes.  We would also like to thank all the participants, and wish them all a well done for their hard work.”
