Greg - Stairs No Obstacle for this Policeman!

Greg, 44, said that weight crept up on him after being promoted from "chasing people over fences" to "driving a desk", "I put on about 20 kilos over five years after changing job roles." Greg said his turning point came when a colleague collapsed and died at work from a heart attack, "That gave me a big scare and was my wake up call. I was already on medication to treat my high blood pressure and knew that I had to lose weight for my health," Greg said.

Weighing 125kgs, Greg joined a LifeShape program and 30 kilos in six months^. Greg now runs on a treadmill or rides his bike for at least 45 minutes each morning and feels fantastic. "I used to hate running. Now I look forward to it every day." Greg, who had tried diets in the past, said the health professionals at the LifeShape Clinic taught him how to prepare healthy meals without feeling hungry.

"When you feel like you're starving you can't stick to a diet," Greg said. "My Dietitian taught me how to eat healthy meals that included meat, dairy and vegetables. I'm the cook in the house and the dinners I make now are balanced with vegetables as well as protein." Greg said as a result of his dramatic weight loss, the Doctors predict he will be able to reduce his blood pressure medication. "I'm counting down the days. The Doctors say I should be on track in a month."

He said that motivation was a big part of losing weight, and the Wesley team made all the difference because they were behind him all the way. "Each week they would tell me what a great job I was doing, and they celebrated with me every time I lost give five kilos," he said. Greg said his family was also very supportive during his weight loss journey. "My wife and two daughters are so proud of me."0645237 "And it's great to walk into a shop and be able to buy nice clothes. I used to shop at Lowes because I could only fit XXL size clothing," he said. Greg also finds he has more energy to pursue his sports.

"I've always sailed hobicats. I'm now more mobile moving around on the boat and I don't need a 30 knot wind to get going any more!" Greg laughs.

Inspired by Greg's amazing weight loss, several of his workmates have also joined a LifeShape program. "It's nice to know that you are having a positive influence on people around you," Greg said.
