    2 years ago I was 22 stone and pretty settled in my large life, then my world was turned upside down, finding myself suddenly a widower at age 42.
    The loss of my wife led to a major self examination of my life and I decided I didn't want to be fat anymore, having been overweight since birth, I was ready for a change.

    18 months of being a bit more active, walking 4 miles a few times a week, and cutting out some of the junk from my diet helped in getting me down to 19 Stone and there the progress
    stopped. I sought advice from my GP and was offered a consultation at my local leisure centre with a weightloss / fitness trainer.
    I joined the local gym, having spent a lifetime avoiding such places, climbed on a treadmill and havent looked back since.
    Last August I started logging what I was eating on MFP, took up swimming as a way to exercise and for enjoyments, now swimming 6 days a week, a mile or so a day.
    I now weigh 14st 6lbs, with about another stone to go to my target weight (185lbs).
