Meet Charlie | Our August Slimmer of the Month Winner
Start weight: 22 stone
Current weight 13 stone
What made you decide to lose weight?
“I have arthritis and have had lots of ops to try and help but I never helped myself and just felt sorry for myself. I was searching the internet for help and found Exante. My 9 year old daughter had never known me well and enough was enough! I realised I could lose weight or get worse and give up. I chose to fight and am amazed to discover with the help if Exante i could win and discover life. My life has changed beyond belief with the change in my size.”
Did you follow a plan?
“Yes, the Flexi Solution“.
What did you like about the plan?
“The plan gives me choices. I LOVE crisps and still can’t believe Exante have them!!! I look forward to my meals where I used to hate eating and would feel guilty ALL THE TIME!!! I don’t see it as a diet but a life adjustment that just suits me.”
When did you first notice a difference?
“After two stone I could walk down the stairs without being in pain for the first time in 10 years!”
What have you learnt during your journey with Exante?
“A lot about what I used to to wrong. I have educated myself about what suits me and what doesn’t. I now know I ate too much!! I have mainly learnt what it is like to not be obese and it is AMAZING!”
How has your life changed since losing weight? Tell us your story.
“I am in a lot less pain. I still have metal holding my knees together and arthritic hands that hurt but nothing like it used too. Exante helped me when I found out I have arthritis in my hip because I knew loosing weight would really help. I wake up looking forward to each day. I walk more and have even bought a swimming costume! I feel like a normal person and am no longer the fattest person in every room I walk into. I am no longer relying on other people for the solutions and feel in control of myself. I am even straying to like myself!”
