Alisdair lost 50lbs

Across a year, Alisdair lost 50Ibs and 14cm from around his waist. Going from a size 40 waist to a size 32 – he’s now wearing trousers that hadn’t fitted since he was a teenager.

I was carrying a lot of excess weight and I struggled with back pain. I was active when I was younger but as I got older, got a job, things changed. Under pressure at work I would eat for comfort – I was a very emotional eater.

The benefits reach beyond weightloss, it’s given me structure, made me more organised, it’s given me the confidence to take more from life. I have more energy and feel better. I’ve relearned ‘how’ to eat, not just what’ to eat. The downside – I’ve had to buy two new wardrobes throughout my weight loss journey. I’d say its about taking responsibilty, recognising your unhelpful behaviours and getting rid of the ‘all-or-nothing’ mindset.

It feels very sustainable. The habits are so engrained that I couldn’t go back.
