NEWTOWNABBEY’S DUP MLAs have reported an encouraging start to their participation in an eight-week programme to lose some weight and improve their lifestyles.
North Belfast representatives Nelson McCausland, Paula Bradley and William Humphrey, and South Antrim’s Paul Girvan and Trevor Clarke are among more than 20 Stormont politicians who are participating in the Safefood ‘Stop the Spread’ initiative, which encourages people to reduce excess weight and thereby improve their health.
As well as attending a weekly ‘weigh-in’ where they will receive health tips and nutritional advice from Safefood experts, participating MLAs are also being encouraged to use Safefood’s free online weight loss website, Weigh2Live and participate on the Weigh2Live Facebook page and connect with others also trying to lose weight.
