“If there’s a diet on this planet that I haven’t tried… it doesn’t exist.” Chris struggled for years with keeping his discipline when attempting to lose weight. He had tried everything – dieting, exercise, but his weight kept on increasing until he reached 25 stone.
“There were times when I had my head screwed on and I thought, right, i’m gonna do this, and I could see the weight coming off. Then for some reason I’d completely sabotage it. I’d go, OK, so I’ve lost a stone this month, I deserve a chinese.”
With his third child on the way, Chris thought it was time to take action, and after having gastric band surgery with Healthier Weight in 2017, he’s now lost a massive 12.5 stone. Having set 4 life goals when he was younger, weight loss surgery has helped him achieve all of them.
“I wanted to be a Dad, I wanted to be a radio DJ, I wanted to be wrestler and I wanted to be an author. Over the past couple of years, I’ve managed to do all four of them.”
Chris had no issues in getting back on his feet after surgery, and within 2 weeks could already notice his improvement. He says his life is completely different to what it was before, and now travels up and down the country trying to inspire people wherever he can.
