“My cardiologist told me I was a ticking time bomb. He said you’re a heart attack waiting to happen. I pictured myself as a burden on my wife, and having my daughter look at her dad incapacitated. You can’t afford not to do it, you may pay with your life. Do it for yourself, but do it for those who love you as well.”
Greg’s Lost 35kg^
He talked the talk, now he’s walking the walk! He said he was going to lose 35kg, and he’s hit his goal.
“I look forward to life every day now,” says Greg. “When I look in the mirror I am happy with the person I see. I feel good about me!
My blood pressure is 120 over 75, my bloods are all within the normal range, I have an overall feeling of wellbeing, it’s a feeling I have not had since my days as a professional cricketer in my twenties, forty years ago.
I have been so grateful to the LifeShape Clinic for their fantastic telehealth service that replaced my face to face visits in recent times. They provided me with a safety net that I could rely on in my weight loss journey.”
24kg^ Lighter He Was Feeling Fantastic
24kgs^ lighter Greg was feeling fantastic, and on his way to his 35kg weight loss goal.
The Aussie sporting legend said he felt as good as he did back in his test cricket days. Best of all, he did it without having to compromise his lifestyle because his personalised program fit right into his busy schedule.
After losing 24kg^, Greg noticed even the simplest things were easier in his life. Things like tying his own shoes and getting out of bed in the morning – but important things nonetheless.
Starting Out at 133kg
Functions, lunches, and too many beers had Former Australian Test Cricketer Greg Ritchie tipping the scales at 133kgs. A health scare from his Cardiologist was the hammer on the head he needed to take control of his health.
One day when he looked in the mirror, he said enough was enough and reached out for help to get his weight under control. It was his time to take action, and he got on track to lose his goal of 35kg.
“Waking up in the morning at 133kg and waking up now is light years apart. I’m sleeping so much better, my wife tells me I’ve stopped snoring. I spring out of bed, I look forward to going and doing my walk. Mentally I’m so much clearer – there’s no fogginess anymore.”
