I have been overweight for the past 10 years (since a serious football related knee injury) and have tried unsuccessfully to lose weight whilst actually gaining year on year. I went from 13 Stone to over 23 Stone.
I heard about Man vs Fat on the radio on my commute to work and it sounded like something that might actually work for me so I signed up more out of hope than expectation.
9 weeks later I have lost over 17kg and made my 10% last night. I have gone down 4 trouser sizes and my waist is 17cm smaller! I am amazed by how easily it has happened. Thank you to all my team mates, work colleagues, friends and family who have supported me so far.
Here’s to the next 10%. I still have a very long way to go!
Good luck to those beginning their journeys. Get through the hard days and keep talking to people. It is definitely worth it. I love the constant question ‘have you lost weight?’ My 7 year old autistic son said today. ‘I’m pleased you have lost weight daddy. It means you won’t die and I can cuddle you easier!’ I can’t put it any better myself.
