Gary is one of our members who has smashed his first year on the Life Plan. We spoke with him to learn more about his journey.
Read on for Gary's transformation...
My mates came down to visit me last year and they brought tops for everyone. I remember feeling so embarrassed about my weight, that I couldn't take my top off in front of them. I had to go into a separate room to get changed.
My activity levels were none existent. I'd literally park my car as close to the office as I could, just to avoid having to walk anywhere. During lockdown I was working from home and the only steps I'd clock were the ones walking to the fridge.
My diet consisted of takeaways, crisps and chocolate. If I bought a multi-bag of crisps, I'd eat the whole bag in one sitting.
I tried SlimFast a few years ago but it wasn't sustainable. As soon as I stopped, I was just back to square one.
I needed to change.
My wife told me about Team RH. I looked on their Facebook and knew straight away that the tough love approach was what I needed
I signed up and went public about it to everyone. The support I got from my family and Team RH gave me the extra push I needed to start properly.
I started to increase my steps each month, and I'm now walking nearly 6 miles a day, hitting my 10k step goal, as a minimum.
I initially struggled to hit 3,400 calories. The coaches convinced me to stick to them and I'm so glad I did. Over the course of the year, as I've been losing the weight, they've adjusted my calories accordingly, and I'm now on 2,200.
It's completely changed my relationship with food. I can eat what I want, as long as I track and weigh everything.
I've now lost over 78lbs which is nearly 6 stone. I literally can't believe it.
It's made me so much more involved with my kids because my stamina's improved so much. I'm much more confident and relaxed now and everyone is seeing that change in me.
Team RH is the most beneficial thing I've done. If you have a bad day, write it off and start again tomorrow. Believe in yourself.
My wife said to me a couple of years back that I was a heart attack waiting to happen, and now I can honestly say that Team RH have extended my life.
My advice to anyone considering signing up to Team RH would be to just do it now. Make yourself accountable and fully trust and commit to the plan, you'll see the change.
