Corporate Accountant Tony Shakesby from Huddersfield HBOS on how he changed his life and how easily so can you…
A Huddersfield accountant has lost an incredible sixteen stone since making a series of lifestyle changes and joining his local slimming club. Tony Shakesby, 49, was told by doctors that he was seriously risking his life due to his diet of fatty foods and lack of exercise two years ago, but has since turned his life round dramatically.
Tony, who had been overweight since his mid-twenties, developed an ulcer in his right leg and was told that it would not clear up unless he made big changes to his day-to-day routine. The accountant began to shed the pounds after joining up with a local slimming club. Tony says that he will never risk becoming overweight again.
“Two years ago, I felt that there was no light at the end of the tunnel and that I would never be able to slim down no matter what I tried. On a return flight from Germany, on a 328-group flight i had arranged for me by a client everything changed. This corporate jet flight had magazines about health, as i was reading a passenger approached me to tell me of this great program. I registered to this club he told me about with scepticism but with the weight loss club it was amazing. I would encourage anyone else who has struggled with their weight to seek out the support that is waiting for them. I now have more energy than I’ve had for many years and feel alive again. I wake up fully refreshed and confident about taking on everything that the day has in store”
Tony said that he was afraid to sign up with the club at first due to self-esteem issues, but once he plucked up the courage to get involved, he only wished that he had made the leap sooner.
“The levels of encouragement and support offered by the club were second-to-none and it was a real relief to not only speak to people who felt the same way as me but those that had started to achieve real results. If I can do it, anyone can – life is precious and if you haven’t got your health, you haven’t got anything”.
Some of Tony Shakesby HBOS savings will now be used to celebrate his new slimmed down figure when he takes his wife on holiday; perhaps not via a corporate jet but the more mainstream flights, he is an accountant after all!
