One group of Shepton Mallet residents have been labelled as great losers – for how much weight they have ditched.
Karolina Dominowska – or Kat as she known to family and friends – is notching up a major success story in the town.
Her weight loss challenge community group is attracting streams of people to her Wellness Studio and to her Wednesday night classes at Shepton Mallet Leisure Centre.
Kat is a living example of practising what she preaches. She signed up for the course herself – and lost three stone. Her Mum Miroslawa did the course with her and lost 24kg. Both felt so much fitter and energetic and more positive about life that they decided to spread the word.
So far all the people have lost more than 212 pound all together, leaving all that body fat behind them in 2012.
"The beginning of the New Year is all about reviewing what we have done and accomplished through a year and also new year resolutions," she said.
"We are about to start a new Community Weight Loss Challenge, a 12 week nutrition course for anyone who wants to find out more about the healthy nutrition – and also lose a bit of weight.
"We will be starting a new wight loss challenge on January 17 at Wellness Studio in Shepton Mallet at 6.30pm.
