Skidaddle first met Lizzie in February 2015 when she turned up for the Aberfoyle Trail Race, 7km of gruelling hill running. This in itself is nothing spectacular but just to make it to the start line Lizzie had lost an incredible 10 stone in weight.
In 2011 Lizzie lost her mother who had had a long history of strokes, heart problems and type 2 diabetes.

Lizzie then commenced her weight loss journey which she admits was total hell at times, but she tacked this mammoth task with grit and determination.

Lizzie started cycling, attending fitness classes and in 2013 she took on personal trainer, Pete Waugh. Eventually the weight started going down and as it did Lizzies golf handicap also improved. This has by no means been an easy task, but now, ten stone lighter, Lizzie’s quality of life is so different to before.
Lizzie takes part in most of the Skidaddle events and if she is not on the start line she is there as a volunteer. She has taken up open water swimming, she runs and cycles regularly and I hear she is a demon on the golf course.
Will power is so understated and one thing is for sure…
This Girl Can!!
