Meet Matt Bowes. Matt is a 34 year old father of two, Ebony nearly 4 and Oliver 7 months, from NSW. He is also a Healthy Dad and has already achieved an amazing weight loss in a short period of time.
What did you start off weighing?
My start weight was 125.9kg.
What was your motivation to lose weight? Did anything trigger it?
How did you lose weight?
How long has it taken?
I started in mid June, so 4 months so far.
What is your motivation to stay on track?
I like how much more energy I have now. The recipes and smoothies have made it really easy to make it a day-to-day thing.
What advice can you give another Healthy Dad?
Preparation is key. Cook meals and snacks in bulk and make sure there’s always an easy healthy choice handy. And the occasional cheat day is ok!
Who are you doing this for and why?
Myself, so I can be there for my family.
What has changed from losing weight in your life?
- Increased energy levels,
- Work is much easier,
- I can join in more with the kids, and
- I feel better and more confident overall.
Also, I’m excited to be able to run for the first time in my life. I’ve found I really enjoy it now.
