My True Weight Loss Story: I Have One, But What’s Your Excuse?

Do Diet Pills Work

As I will say in one of my other posts, I became disabled around 8-9 years ago due to nothing more than a slip on some mud in the garden. While falling I smacked my head on the edge of a wall, and I was out for the count. Therefore, I will give you my true weight loss story.

I Would Remember

However, for some strange unknown reason, I seem to remember very quickly thinking before I slipped into unconsciousness that “OH NO I HAVE DONE SOMETHING BAD“………

Eating Vegetables Is A Big Part Of My True Weight Loss StoryIf you read my about me page, you will get a short description of the coma time and my waking from it, but I wanted to focus more on the years that followed. That is where I gained all of my weight.

At first, Well for the first six months at least, I did not gain any weight what so ever. Although slowly but surely I started to notice a few lbs of extra flesh appearing mainly around my stomach. “oh no I thought,” and it did not take me long to figure out the reason why this was happening. The answer was a simple one.

My True Weight Loss Story: Inactive As can Be

It was definitely due to my inactivity as I was now not able to walk and was confined to a wheelchair. I was as idle as can be. Even then I could see a huge problem coming in future years. And then it just faded into the back of my mind as I was whisked off to a care home for a couple of years.

healthy 39It wasn’t until I moved into my lovely flat in a beautiful area that I began to pile on the weight. At my heaviest, I weighed in at 18 stones and 3 lbs. (14 pounds to 1-stone in the UK)

I Had To Listen

That, I knew, was not good at all and my friends and some of my family became concerned about me. I had to listen. At first, it just fell on deaf ears. I did not want to admit that I had become overweight, but in truth, I had, rising from a modest 11 stone which was a little on the light side for someone 6 ft 1.”

It is where I began my research if the truth is known. It is all without anyone’s knowledge, and thus, I decided to do a site about it both during my attempt to lose it and once I had met my goal. Then, I continued as I would become aware that my knowledge was worth sharing.

I had a disliking for taking pills anyway especially as I was already on so many because of my accident. I soon would realize that the NATURAL WAY was the correct path that I must follow. So I did just that.

I adjusted my diet and came up with a healthy diet menu to follow. A few doors down from me, I was lucky enough to have a man who lived a very healthy lifestyle. He ate correctly and would exercise regularly. I will always remember he would say to me that weight loss is a simple equation.

Lose Or Gain It’s Your Choice

If you eat less than the average amount of calories, you will lose weight. If you eat more, then you will gain weight. Simple. So lose or increase it’s your choice, so I am thinking for a long time. “Yes it is ok for him as he can burn the calories off through his exercises,” but I cant.healthy 35 But surely because I was living such a sedentary lifestyle, it shouldn’t mean that I cannot burn any calories at all so guess what I started doing to lose/burn some. I started Sta-sits. For those of you who do not know what this is, it is just the joining of two words. It is standing and sitting.

Yes, it was that simple an exercise. I just pulled up to one of my walls and grabbed hold of the rail I had in place, and just stood from my wheelchair and then sat back down. I repeated this until I physically could not get up one more time. It was a great exercise that my good friend would indirectly suggest in other conversations.

So you see it always helps to seek impartial, honest advice. Although you may not like what you hear, very often the truth hurts.

My True Weight Loss Story: Listen To Some Others

So listen and take it very seriously when you receive the statement ” You need to lose weight” Throughout this site, there is a plethora (lots) of information on the weight loss, so have a good read and try to absorb as much as possible and return to it when you need.

I am aware that not everyone can find the time nor have the inclination to do some home exercises to lose weight, you should at least try. You may be one of the few lucky ones that need not exercise for your weight control, but what you must remember is what goes on inside the body. Your diet and the level of exercise you partake in, without question, will determine how healthy you are.

So please try if not for your weight then for your health. For those of you that have a disability that completely prevents you from exercising my heart goes out to you it does. I mean come on, I have limited abilities, and I manage a little so for you, non-disabled people THERE REALLY IS NO EXCUSE AT ALL.

  1. You are such an inspiration. It certainly makes me think I have no excuse but to lose a few pounds.

    I spend a lot of my time at my desk and I certainly know I need to get a lot more active than I have been. The real problem is that I really love my job and on the downside it means I predominately sit on my butt! Time to make a few changes, thank you so much for sharing. Take Care.

    Kind Regards

  2. What an inspiring story. You know what you want and you go for it! You put a lot of us to shame!

    Have you managed to lose weight? If so, how much? I’m really interested in how.. I definitely need to and it’s my resolution for 2016 to lose a lot of weight. How is your diet going, is there anything in particular you are eating?

  3. Simon, your story is truly inspiring and my heart goes out to you. It’s motivating that even after getting disabled you didn’t give up on yourself and you found strength to find a way to do simples exercise and to lose weight. Great story and I will be sure to share it with my friends (some of them are overweight and not disabled, but it seems like they just gave up on how they look and they are not trying to make any difference in their appearance).

    1. yes, take it from me it is very easy to think about giving up but you really must motivate yourself and think positive, think about your health primarily and the rest will just falling into place like it did with me

  4. Tank you I am glad that naturally lose it is an inspiration to you. I really wanted it to help to inspire people actually. And, yes as will most people your weight can move up or down but it is not just the weight you should consider it is how healthy you are that goes along with this! All to often yes people just consume “junk” or convenience foods that really have no vitamin or mineral content just calories and often they are empty. So you take on board these calories whilst in addition you receive no other vitamin and mineral benefit. Hence the word “Empty”

  5. Hi Simon,
    The truth that you are an example of persistence and decision, I know that must have been difficult but I see that you did it and I congratulate you. I have no problems with weight but I wonder if you have any advice to maintain a stable weight, there is a proven diet one can trust. By the way your site is nice and very easy to read.

    1. Please, I do not wish to sound like a preacher but I must know this in order to give you any advice. Do you eat healthily?

  6. I’ve put on about 20 pounds in the last year that I’ve been wanting to lose. Your post was very inspiring and helped me realize that I really don’t have any excuse not to lose the weight.

    Do you have any tips for eating healthier? I really think what is causing the weight gain is my poor eating habits combined with less exercise over the years.
