LighterLife Men Bare All For Charity

LighterLife has produced a brand new calendar to help raise
money for the Prostate Cancer Charity. The calendar features 12 men who
have lost weight with LighterLife baring all for the cameras.
These brave men, from various walks of life had a variety of personal reasons for losing weight which ranged
from being able to keep up their kids and reducing the risk of bad health, through
to wanting to apply to become a fireman. What brought these men together was that
they all had the same goal; to lose weight with LighterLife. With
their lives changed for the better, they stripped down to not only celebrate their
amazing weight loss, but to also raise money and awareness for a charity close to
Lee, who posed for the month of January, lost six stone and is now running rings
around his young football team. Gary, otherwise known as Mr. February, is six stone
lighter and no longer lags behind the rest of his walking group. Lee, or Mr. March,
has lost the five stone he put on after being diagnosed with testicular cancer.
Mark, who can be seen in the calendar in April, has a new lease on life and can keep
up with his kids after losing four stone. Mike, or Mr. May, is no longer clinically
obese and since losing just under three stone, is a faster and more confident water
polo player. Five stone lighter, Nuno, or Mr. June, now has the confidence and the BMI to apply for his dream job as
Former yo-yo dieter Phil, who posed for July, lost three stone which has given him
the confidence to do what he loves - DJ'ing. Steven, or Mr. August, can now enjoy a
full game of football without feeling tired and Rod, who features in September, is
now training for a triathalon to help maintain his five stone weight loss.
LighterLife weight-management Counsellor Gina Lennon, who coordinated the men during
the calendar photo shoot, said: "I'm delighted to have been involved in this
project. There has been a great deal of interest and this has definitely put the fun
back into fundraising. The calendar boys have achieved so much - losing such large
amounts of weight, maintaining their weight loss, overcoming fears about their body
image and baring all to raise money for a very worthwhile charity."
