Champion Annette Doherty
At the age of 55 years and being a post menopause woman suffering from an inactive thyroid and high cholesterol both of which I take medication for and for someone who eats healthily and exercises everyday I had a huge problem moving my weight on the scales and changing my body shape. All my life I have had a weight problem.

Meeting up with Ngaire at her Summer Fashion Show and seeing how great she looked inspired me to enter the Body for-life Challenge. The next day I arranged to meet Ngaire at the Ponsonby Private Health Club to get started. My motivation was already part the way there. With her positive attitude and my determination between us we became a recipe for success. However at the end of my 12 weeks I then gave Ngaire a challenge. My wardrobe had to be completely remodelled to my new shape. Ngaire is an excellent seamstress and style consultant.

On the 10th March 2003 my friend Annette Doherty's achievements were rewarded at the EAS BFL Awards held at the Bruce Mason Theatre. Annette became a NZ Champion winning her age category and also putting her in the Top 2000 in the world amongst 246,000 entrants from over 50 Countries. I was so delighted to be able to share that with her and her family on the night. Now it's your turn!!!!
