“20 stone is when I started losing weight seriously. I always struggled to maintain a healthy weight even as a child. I was completely oblivious to how heavy I was. Takeaways and processed food was my food of choice and working as a travelling engineer, sandwiches and pasties were my go to food.

My relationship with exercise started up again seriously in November 2019. After taking just over 7 years off, because of a steady girlfriend who is now my wife and the children that followed. It was nerve racking at first but since the diet change in august, I had lost over 2 stone and wanted to keep the momentum following. I was exercising 5 days a week following a simple routine I had found on the Samsung health app. The workouts are just simple movements, nothing fancy, basic push/pull exercises followed by cardio on either the x trainer, rowing machine or bike. But ironically the bikes were never my favourite in the gym. My workouts were before work also usually at 6am and for about an hour and a half.

Since the lockdown though my exercise has changed. I am now training everyday, roughly for 30 mins in my home gym and ride on average 30km on my bike every other day. I wasn’t working out at all before November. I work as a travelling engineer so that was my excuse. Being on the road and sleeping in different hotels. Today I weigh 16 stone and in the best shape of my life. I started my Instagram page to keep me accountable and to remind myself of where I was. I still travel with work but a gym has to be available in the hotel or I won’t stay there. I guess you can say all in my priorities have shifted and for the better. I’m most definitely a healthier happier person because of exercise and losing the weight.”
