I've lost exactly 5st70lbs31.7kg from the 31st March 2020 to 31st October 2020
When the Prime Minister put us in a lockdown due to COVID-19, I was placed on furlough from work. I decided, since I had an extended period of leave, I could concentrate on losing 1-2 stone – I never expected to exceed my own expectations and goals! I also connected with an old school friend who offers nutrition advice/coaching and he supported me throughout this period.
Through my nutrition coach who uses the app himself and recommends it to his clients/ associates.
My weight had been increasing since 2013 due to poor food choices and being inactive as I had an office/car-based job. I also sustained a serious knee injury which prevented me from playing football and cricket, and I gradually put on weight. The two combined meant weight gain inevitably occurred!
It was hard in some ways but being in lockdown gave me the opportunity to isolate myself and concentrate on getting healthier. I could focus on it and be more dedicated.
Calories in and calories out is easy to get your head round as the app is very good at providing the nutritional information of foods from the major shops and restaurants. The most difficult thing was to understand nutrients and how much protein, carbs and fat I needed each day. Hence why I found it helpful to use the app in unison with a nutritionist.
Fitter, healthier and happier. I now run 7-8 miles 3 to 4 times a week – something I would have laughed at prior to March 2020 if you said I would be able to do that! My doctor has commented on how well I look, my heart and overall health have vastly improved thanks to the weight loss!
The ability to run and be on a football field once again! Something I didn’t believe would happen in a million years prior to March.
