Only about half of all couples get pregnant within six months of trying, about 80 per cent become pregnant within a year, and approximately 90 per cent at the end of two years. This means that, even if there is nothing wrong, it can take up to two years to conceive. Over the age of 35, it can take even longer.

As the weigh-in day for participants dawns, Lynda McFarland, who is a nutritional consultant and wholefoods cookery instructor, has some great tips to assist people over the coming six weeks of Lent. Organiser of the Slimathon Cllr Aengus O’Rourke said, “We want people to take on the challenge of losing weight over Lent and in turn raise some euros for Ss Peter and Paul’s Church. Most people will give up luxury items for Lent anyway but this is an opportunity to go that extra mile. Anyone can come along on Monday February 15 to the Sheraton Athlone Hotel at 7pm to get weighed in and they will get their sponsorship cards also. The Sheraton Fitness Centre is also giving six weeks free membership to participants so there are no excuses!”
