Hi, about me, I hope, will explain how I became involved in weight loss, and thank you for visiting my website.
It doesn’t recommend the use of fad diets, “miracle” weight loss pills or slimming aids. (See post Slimming Aids – The Risks.
What it will do, through its pages and posts is show, with a little determination and willpower, how you can lose weight safely and permanently through a combination of a healthy calorie controlled diet and exercise.
Now, about me. My name is Brian Shaw and I have been married to my wife for fifty-four years, have two married daughters, four grandchildren and one great grandchild. I live in Cumbria, UK, on the edge of the Lake District.
Apprenticed as a compositor in the printing industry, I worked for quite a number of years designing and typesetting pages for a publishing company that specialized in publishing health and weight loss magazines, books and periodicals. Through this I gained an in-depth knowledge of the problems excess weight and obesity can have on health and lifestyle.
How I Became Involved In Weight Loss
An embarrassing incident involving myself and a friend while visiting a football (soccer depending on which country you reside in) ground in the lower division of the English football league, led me to becoming involved in health and weight loss.
My friend, who weighed around twenty-two stone at the time, got stuck in the turnstile on entering the ground. When we eventually freed him we found the seats were too small for him to sit in and we finished up standing in another part of the ground. Was he embarrassed? You bet he was!
On returning home we discussed his weight problem and I said, with the knowledge I already had, I would help him if he would think seriously about losing weight. So together, along with advice from his general practitioner, we devised a series of diets, and exercises to slowly build up his fitness levels.
My friend, although a lot older, now weighs fourteen stone (about the correct weight for his height and build) and still exercises regularly.
If I can be of any assistance to you in your efforts to lose weight, please don’t hesitate to contact me at:
