Did you know that nearly two-thirds of people in the UK are overweight and increasing towards a third of people are classed as obese? That’s 64% of people who are overweight.
Checking your weight position is the first step to making changes and losing weight. Simply enter your height and weight below to see where you are now:

As someone who has helped thousands of people to lose weight I know that it’s affecting you much more than you realise, both physically and mentally.
Here’s how being overweight affects people’s lives, and what you can do about it.
Firstly, people who are overweight, even by a small amount, suffer from these:
- More likely to have depression
- More illnesses and health problems – Like infections, colds, heart attack, stroke, high blood pressure, and high cholesterol
- Higher risk of diseases – Like cancer, diabetes, and heart disease
- Early death due to poor health
- Lower quality of life
- Lower self-esteem and confidence
- Stigma of being perceived as lazy or weak willed
- Lower energy levels
- Lower quality relationships with their partner, children, or grandchildren, due to all of the above
The good news is that you have the power to make a massive difference to your weight and therefore make a massive difference to your life.
You are in control, and the choices that you make today will determine your future, either positively or negatively.
Here are positive choices you can make right now to help you take full control of your weight and your life:
- Commit to regular exercise – This should be something that is both effective and that you enjoy. Then you can keep it up over the long term, lose weight, and keep the weight off
Many people find my Classes a massive help with this, both getting great results and enjoying their exercise
- Develop a healthy diet – Most people try all sorts of diets over their lifetime and end up where they started or even heavier. Diets are not effective for long term weight loss and well over 95% of people will fail when using a diet
It’s much better to develop a healthy diet that you enjoy and then, like with exercise, you can keep it up over the long term, lose weight, and keep the weight off
- Increase your motivation – Motivation is an area that everyone struggles with from time to time, some more than others
Without the right motivation you won’t make the necessary changes to your life with exercise and diet to lose weight, and so you and your life suffers. Motivation is much easier with the right help and support
- Get the right help and support – No one can achieve great or worthwhile things like losing weight without help. As this is your life and it’s massively important to you, it makes sense to get the best help and support you can
With the right expert help you can get the best weight loss results, and with the right support you can keep motivated and enjoy everything that you do with your exercise and diet. For one to one help from me please see my Personal Training
