Hi all,

Our story is like many others. Our weight rose and rose over the years until we had a wake up call. My young, fit, healthy and sporty brother was diagnosed with leukaemia and the intensity of his treatment was dependent on how healthy he was already. Knowing that should anything happen to us where we would need such medical help, that we were so out of condition to withstand intensive treatments shocked us. That month in November 2015 we decided to tackle our weight once and for all.

We started tracking everything we ate on MFP and also incorporated a DDPYOGA workout a day, building up to two a day. Within four months we had lost 80lbs between us. We still have a stone each to lose but we know we can do it!

Good luck to everyone on this journey with us. We can do it!

    Very inspiring, especially with a family that big. Passing the lesson down to your kids while they can see you two make the change will have a big impact on all of them. I'm glad my 5 were all able to see me drop my weight and we talk about "fat-dad" from time to time.

    Wonderful job!!! Did your flexibility improve a lot with this program??? I've heard really good things about it.

    Firstly, I want to say that I hope your brother is doing ok. That's the main thing.

    Secondly, look at you! Wow! Speaking from experience I know DDP yoga is the BEST thing out there so keep it up! I lost a stone and a half and toned up with it (and yes, ganssmith, it does make your flexibility improve, immensely!). Unfortunately, I stopped doing it (even after meeting the man himself and getting a lecture, haha) so I'm back where I started. But yep, I can't recommend DDP Yoga highly enough, however, it really isn't your mama's yoga. Bang! ;)

    (BTW, can I ask, did you take the after-shots? And if so, what editing did you do? I love 'em! :smiley: )
