OPERATION TRANSFORMATION 2017

Kiltimagh Operation Transformation recommenced on 4th Jan 2017, when over 300 people assembled in the Park Hotel to sign up with our 8 enthusiastic leaders. Each Team leader has their weight recorded and revealed every Wednesday night (team members weight is kept confidential). Thanks to Clare and staff of the Park Hotel for providing the venue each week.

The team leaders and their teams are also raising money for their chosen charities. There are sponsorship cards in circulation or donations can be given to the leaders or any committee member.

We got off to a great start with all the leaders organising walks, dance classes, aqua aerobics, cycles (for all abilities), early morning workouts, scavenger hunt, football skills, basketball, yogalates, to name but a few activities. The Saturday morning and Monday evening 5k walks are very popular again this year preceded by Avril “the hips” warm up! A special word of thanks to SuperValu for sponsoring water for the Saturday morning walk, to the Ward family for manning the water station and to Gary Smyth of Heneghan’s pharmacy for sponsoring the lovely pink high vis bibs ensuring we are all seen while out on our various activities, day or night.

Participants enjoyed two very informative talks by local ladies, Dietician Aisling Byrne who informed us all of the dos and don’ts of our new lifestyle change….. Remember “you cannot outrun a bad diet” and Psychologist Dr Jane McNicholas, who talked to us about comfort eating and ways of overcoming it.
Thank you ladies.

Week after week the weight loss has been phenomenal and so far to date we have lost an incredible total of 699lbs and there are still two weeks to go before the “Big Reveal Night” on Fri 17th February in the park Hotel.
But Operation Transformation is not just about losing weight, it is a lifestyle change, it is about getting out and about with members of our community, young and old. It is about making new friends. It is about trying out new activities. It is about having fun while getting healthier and fitter and hopefully we will be encourage to continue on with our new lifestyle throughout the year.

A big thank you to our MC Brenda McNicholas, to our “Weigh in Ladies” Bernie Corry, Bernie Byrne, Marcella McDonnell and Avril FordeMcGreal who are there every week to record all our weights.

Thanks also to Carroll’s Londis and Kiltimagh medical centre for your generous sponsorship.
