I am a solicitor and widower after losing my wife Denise to breast cancer in 2018. I had never been heavier than 88kg all my life but it crept up to 93kg while Denise was ill and then after her death it managed to sneak up to 98kg.
I was travelling in Europe last year and every time I had to put my sandals on I thought “Who put this basketball around my waist?” I decided to fix that when I returned home. Denise made me promise I would still enjoy my life to the full after she was gone, so I decided to get fit.
I chose Lite n’ Easy for freshness, convenience and portion control. I figured I needed to learn portion size more than anything else. I also adopted the 16-8 fasting method, so had my first meal at 11am and my last at 7pm.
I absolutely love everything about the Lite n’ Easy program!
Every Tuesday I put in an order. It is delivered to the door on Thursday. I have very little grocery shopping to do now – save for the cat and the dog and some personal care items.
I started in early July 2019 and I reached my original goal of 75 kilos weight in late February 2020. I am 71 kilos now, so that’s a total of 27 kilos.
I walk the dog for 1 hour in the morning and again for 45 minutes in the evening. That’s probably a total of 5 kms. I swim in the ocean 3 – 4 days a week. I do pilates twice a week. Up until the gyms closed I was doing weight training at the gym twice a week to build muscle.
I have lost 6 inches from my waist and dropped from 38 to 32. T-shirts are now medium instead of large. I’ve thrown out heaps of clothes because they no longer fit me and have had to buy a new wardrobe.
I feel fitter now than I was at 18.
I used to get out of bed in the morning at age 55 with aches and pains which I no longer have, and I’ve halved my blood pressure medication.
I plan to keep doing what I have done with Lite n’ Easy to maintain this new lifestyle– except eat a little more to stop the weight loss. I live in a beautiful part of the world and have a great work/life balance, now my health is optimized so I can enjoy it all to the fullest.
