Weight Loss: 62kg
Consultant: Tamara Lynam
I am a 39 year old father of 5 children ranging in age from 2-16 years. I work 11-12 hours per day as a truck driver, so most of that time I am inactive. Prior to starting CWP, I was consuming roughly 2-3 litres of coke per day and unhealthy fast foods along my route.
When I saw a photo of myself taken on my 39th birthday in February, I was disgusted with my appearance and could not believe how much I had let myself go. By July, my weight was out of control and I knew I was ready to begin my own plan with Cambridge Weight Plan.
After hearing that my children were concerned about me due to the fact that they never had a chance to know their grandfathers, who both died at the age of 56, I knew there was no turning back. I had finally come to the realisation that it was time to look after me, otherwise I may not be around long enough to enjoy my children growing up and having children of their own.
After meeting with my Consultant Tamara, I knew I could do this and the fact that I have lost an average of 2 kg per week over my 29-week weight loss stage, reiterates the fact that I have not cheated once during my entire journey. I used to struggle to put on my shoes and socks, and was exhausted after the effort – but now I am feeling fantastic after losing over 45% of my total body weight.
I am sleeping so much better now and am not constantly being woken up with acid reflux. When I think about the fact that I have lost the equivalent weight of a fully-grown female, I am surprised that I was still managing to get around at all, let alone hold down a full time job.
Now that I am in stabilisation, I have recently started an exercise program to sculpt, tone and strengthen my body. Unloading and reloading the truck has also become so much easier as I no longer have to ‘squeeze’ to fit in the aisles and I have so much more energy!
Right from the very first phone call with Tamara, I have felt welcomed and at ease. Tamara was able to modify the program to allow me to only consume CWP products, which helped immensely, as I do not have a lot of time to prepare meals. It has been great to have the help and support of Tamara who monitors my progress, but is also always available for a chat.
