Finalist

Tamara Macdonald

“I live and breathe WW! It’s been a part of my life for so long now I couldn’t forget to track, even if I tried! I lost 46kg over 13 months and maintained it for almost 10 years. I recently gained 20kg during my pregnancy and I’m on my way back down.”

Finalist

Fraser Robinson

“After losing just over 52kg, my life has changed drastically. I feel more comfortable in my own skin. I’m feeling much happier, and at my last doctor checkup all of my tests came back very positive.”

Finalist

Alicia Hodson

“As a long time sufferer of anxiety and depression WW has had a significant impact on my overall health and mental wellbeing. My increase in physical activity has reduced my risk of diabetes, my blood pressure is now in the healthy range as is my cholesterol.”

Finalist
