Lost: 45kg (36%)
I have dieted before but they were often fads. I would focus on the weight loss, rather than fitness. This ultimately meant I lost weight but I was still incredibly unfit. I fully committed to the MAN v FAT challenge and knew this was my best chance of losing weight and keeping it off.
I lost five stone in four months and the other two stone in the six months after that, also reaching a healthy BMI on the way. I don’t think a weight loss journey ever truly ends, you just regularly redefine and adjust your goals.
I undertake so many more activities now that I wouldn’t have even dreamed of. My life has changed so much in the last year.
I play regular football, have become coach of my MAN v FAT club and have taken up running; having just started getting involved in park runs. My youngest is only four, so being able to run around and keep up with her is absolutely priceless.
