Weight is often a tricky and embarrassing issue for blokes, and it can be hard to find the motivation to lose those pounds when you are lacking in confidence. But I discovered mine after someone jokingly commented that I looked pregnant, which made me conscious of my size and spurred me on to try the Slim-Fast 321 plan.
It was easy to fit into my life and reading comments on the website from people who were further down the line encouraged me to keep on going. I now weigh 13st 7lb and have even started looking at going back to the gym. I love following the plan but still allow myself a treat day every Thursday – it's important to have something to look forward to! I'd definitely urge overweight guys to give this a go.
My Mum always spoke her mind and used to say there was a size 12 person trapped in my body! I even felt fat in my wedding dress – nothing seemed to fit or look nice. I weighed myself and thought enough was enough! I tried so many diets in the past and my willpower is pretty poor, but the Slim Fast shakes are delicious and it was easy to have my calories worked out for me with the easy 3.2.1 Plan.
Now I feel confident in my own skin and look forward to going out – I'm now wearing the size 12 clothes my Mum imagined me in. Many friends and work colleagues have started the Slim Fast 3.2.1 Plan; with some saying I've been an inspiration to them because of the excellent results. I would recommend it to anyone as it really does work and you'll be as happy as me, which really is the greatest feeling ever.
I visited the doctor and discovered I was overweight and had high cholesterol. I was worried for my health and knew I had to make some drastic lifestyle changes. I had also booked a holiday for, which I really wanted to get in shape for. A work colleague had tried the Slim Fast plan and talked about the great results, so my friend Faye and I decided to give it a go!
Now I have so much more energy – I can run up the stairs without huffing and puffing, and even managed to walk on holiday without getting out of breathe which is great! I've dropped 2 dress sizes and have been buying some lovely new clothes – all my colleagues keep complimenting me, which is so nice!
