Like a lot of people in Paul’s position there are very few photographs with him at his height of weight gain. His story is very simple; he worked for a courier service that we used to deliver our parcels. We would often chat about weight, issues, diet, exercise etc, as Paul had always struggled with his size.
After a little coaxing, I convinced him that whilst his journey would have many highs and lows, a significant weight loss was achievable as long as he was consistent. At over 20 stone this was not a quick fix, but after an amazing amount of commitment from paul and the right guidance from us. Paul in 12 months has dropped over 7 stone, entered, ran and finished the 2014 London marathon and raised around £2,000 for www.caudwellchildren.com.
Paul has now got the fitness bug and has entered and plans to compete in his first ever Triathlon in 2015, obviously once he has leaned to swim.
