|Weight loss programme gives Sandy a new lease of life
Sandy Mottram enrolled onto the Lose Weight Feel Great programme shortly after his 32nd birthday, and hasn’t looked back.
For two years Sandy had been taking prescription pain killers every day due to the damage caused through putting pressure on his knees, this was down to his weight gain. At the time he weighed around 18 stone, which was the heaviest he had ever been.
Sandy found the sessions at Lose Weight Feel Great difficult at first as he was trying to tackle the harder levels straight away and was finding it hard to keep up. His instructor worked with him to start at the lower levels with the aim to build up in the weeks ahead.
He said: “Having the option to drop down to a lower intensity kept me motivated in those early weeks, I feel if I hadn’t taken their advice I would have been disheartened by my inability to keep up and perhaps I would have stopped attending the classes.”
Each week Sandy would set himself new targets until he was able to maintain his highest level throughout the whole class.
He said: “I even started running a mile from my house to the exercise class each week to get warmed up, sometimes I would run home afterwards.”
A few months after Sandy Started the programme he adopted a rescue dog named Nico, previously Sandy didn’t feel fit enough to exercise a dog as much as it needed. Now Sandy walks Nico for miles every week and regularly goes running with him. Sandy said: “Nico gets tired before I do.”
Managing to reach his target weight in just under six months Sandy lost a total of 4 stone 9 pounds, but more importantly he’s maintained his weight loss for a further eight months.
He reflected on his inspiring journey through the Lose Weight Feel Great programme, Sandy said: “I have enjoyed a wide range of different classes with different instructors, though I found one thing the same in all the classes and this was the extraordinary amount of care that all of the instructors have for every single person on the course, the level of care and attention still overwhelms me each week.”
Sandy now plans his meals and exercise regime for the week and it’s become second nature to him, he genuinely looks forward to it: “I strongly recommend the Lose Weight Feel Great programme to anyone who is looking to make a healthy lifestyle change.
“The exercise classes are possible for anybody at any level and there is room to improve each week, this works because it’s not a diet, it is a lifestyle change. If your experience is anything like mine you will never look back!”
