"I feel great that I achieved my goals"

About: City Health Care Partnership CIC / Why Weight?

(as a service user),

After having a serious accident at work six years ago my world was turned upside down. After being very active, going to the gym 4 times a week and having a very physical job for 21 years, I found myself in serious pain every day, and my life changed forever. I did everything in my power to get back to work but to no avail – my condition worsened. I found myself at home, no longer able to do normal things.

I had lost everything and with my inactivity the weight gain started. It came on so quickly without me noticing. I hated it, not being able to keep my body in good shape, so I went to my GP and asked for advice. He suggested the active lifestyles, I needed help and advice. I soon went to see Lee.

He explained to me what the course would offer me and how it would help me, I was determined to succeed and from day 1 I did everything Lee advised. Being unable to do physical exercise was a big disadvantage to me because previously being a body builder, exercise was a major part of my life, but with Lee’s help and great advice I changed my eating habits and diet and in all I have lost 17lbs and kept it off.

This is a fantastic scheme that really helps you and sticks with you all the way, so a massive thanks to Lee. Top man, top advice. I would highly recommend this scheme to anyone if you feel down, struggling with life due to weight gain and give it a try. You have nothing to lose and everything to gain – thanks again to everyone involved at active lifestyles health routes, I feel great that I achieved my goals.
