My wife passed away five years ago and I put on a lot of weight. At 112 kilos I felt very sluggish and started to experience health problems, in particular my lungs. I was constantly short of breath.
The turning point came when I was at a mate’s funeral and found myself looking around the room afterwards. Everyone was so overweight and so unhealthy looking that I decided then and there to make a change.
It was obvious that I needed to reduce my weight.
I gave away eating between meals, cut back on alcohol and started ordering Lite n’ Easy for dinner.
I chose Lite n’ Easy because it offered a more balanced approach to eating. Plus the food was delicious with great variety.
I shed 24 kilos in 18 months!
I took up Tai Chi which helps with my breathing and keeps me active. I had both knees replaced previously and they are much better now without the extra weight.
I still eat Lite n’ Easy for dinner 5 nights per week to maintain my weight, plus it’s easier than cooking for one!
I feel so much better these days.
Update from Lionel – April 2020
Happy to report I have had no difficulties ordering my Lite n’ Easy since COVID-19 started and am relieved the company is prioritising their senior customers. I got a load in last Friday which was good. I am ordering 10 dinners at a time as I can’t fit anymore in the freezer and I’m going to set up my orders in advance to avoid missing out. I actually suffered a mild stroke a couple of weeks ago and had to stay in hospital for just a couple of nights, now I’m not allowed to drive now for a while. In hindsight, I think losing all that weight with Lite n’ Easy really helped me a lot, if not I might have been a goner. The stroke might have finished me off! Having my dinners organised now by Lite n’ Easy is really good. Such a relief!
