Craig’s story

Craig tipped the scales at 16st 3lbs and joined LighterLife after being left embarrassed after being unable to squeeze into size 48 inch waist jeans.


  • Weight lost: 3st 5lbs*
  • Length maintaining: 5 years*
  • Weight loss plan: Total


“I found my weight became a big problem when I started getting bullied at school and I found it difficult to make friends.

I was bullied a lot about my weight and my asthma so I lost my confidence completely. I didn’t really make friends and by the time I was in my late teens I was very large, did little exercise and ate very unhealthily.

If it wasn’t for my LighterLife Counsellor and the group sessions I wouldn’t have had the confidence or belief to continue.

Apparently I now look like Olly Murs. I’m more confident in person and I now exercise regularly. I’ve found a new love for swimming and playing football.”

Craig followed the LighterLife Total Plan and is now happier and healthier than ever before. He no longer worries about his weight harming his health.
