This morning.

Bernie Finn from Gorey, County Wexford who was  last night named as the overall winner at the annual Unislim Awards in Debenhams.

Judges Triona McCarthy and Fiona Gratzer chose Bernie Finn, of Gorey, Co. Wexford among 12 finalists from across the country a, after losing an incredible 8st 12lb in a year with Unislim.

Bernie, who had  weighed 18 stone 10lbs, said:

“What doesn’t seem like long ago I could hardly walk and I felt so low.”

In fairness.

    8st. = 50kg of fat = 388,888 kcal

    If it took her exactly 1 year then she was burning 1065 kcal ever single day on top of her basal metabolic rate!!

    Pity the article doesn’t mention what else she did: “she used a holistic approach to losing weight” because apart from the eh Unislim magic that’s like doing a 10k run every single day!!!

    Fantastic achievement

        I always admire people I see who are starting out running or carrying a bit of weight, it’s hard enough sometimes when you are trim, fair f##ks

          are you saying that you never, ever take delight in overtaking them with an effortless stride, whispering “see you later fatty” as you pass?

            I have to confess my form dramatically improves, core in, up on the toes, mouth breathing me ? whenever I have to run past a fit fella,
            that’s why these dark evenings are great, can go back to dying in peace ;)

    Nearly 9 st in a year – it’s bordering impossible. My kid sister attended Weightwatchers after having each of her three kids, she was just trying lose pregnancy weight – maybe 10/12ish pounds – it took a year in each instance. No doubt Bernie looks great, as she did when she was 18st. A happier person now?

    How on earth does a woman who is not particularly big- boned get to 18 stone in the first place? You’d have to be eating night, noon and morning, and presumably you’d feel sick from over-eating all the time. That’s the real achievement. Congrats Bernie all the same, looking good.

        sorry that’s a sweeping statement but if you look at average measurements on a body composition scale ” big boned ” or skeleton size does not cut it as a reason/calculation for being overweight, skeletons just don’t weigh that much about 15 percent of your recommended weight

    It’s the hand-down-the-trousers picture. That’s why this post is here. Indeed the hand down the trousers is all I can see and I have no idea whether anyone could or couldn’t lose 9st in a year and what’s more I don’t really care.

    From the article “Before committing to the health drive in 2016, Bernie weighed 18 stone 10lbs.”
    It doesn’t say she lost it all in 1 year.

    Fair play all the same, best of luck to her.
