As you might have read last month there have been whispers of wedding bells around the halls of Media Sound, as our Accounts Manager Amanda Nolan and her fiancé Paul Firth pumped up the volume on their work outs and toned down the unhealthy food for Sea FM’s Galey, Baggs and Charli’s Shedding for the Wedding competition.
The last three weeks were flat out for the pair- with all kinds of tough challenges including a training session with the Gold Coast Titans, training sessions with the Lady Jane trainers, a wedding dress marathon and a final triathlon. However no wedding preparation was complete without the obligatory Hen’s and Buck’s parties, plus wedding dress fittings and spray tans for the girls; and waxing for the boys.
In the end it all came down to the final weigh in. Amanda and Paul’s Team Firth had a sensational combined weight loss of 15.6kg and weight loss percentage of 7.0%. However it wasn’t enough to beat their rivals, and now close friends Tara and Nathan, who lost a massive 24kg and weight loss percentage of 11.0%.
Undeterred by the fact they didn’t take out the title and walk down the aisle in front of their invited guests and the Sea Fm radio audience- though Amanda was ecstatic to be chosen as Tara’s bridesmaid, they both learned very valuable lessons on eating better and living a healthy lifestyle which they intend to stick to as long as they both shall live.
The whole Media Sound voice over team would like to give a final congratulations to Amanda and Paul on their weight loss to date, and look forward to supporting them again in the near future as they walk down the aisle for the final time.
