A WEIGHT OFF LEE’S MIND

Minimum exercise, daily takeaways and a craving for sugary drinks – three of the habits Lee Stewart had to kick to improve both his mental and physical well-being.

After losing his parents Lee spiralled into a depression that affected his confidence and self-motivation; earlier this year, a very anxious and despondent Lee made the brave step to join the Foundation of Light’s FIT BLACK CATS programme.

Inspired by the idea of improving his health in a positive environment, he signed up to the free health programme, based in and around the Stadium of Light.

The 12-week programme provides those aged 35-65 with an opportunity to make a life-style changes, to help lose weight, get fitter and lead a more active life.

Struggling to deal with the death of his parents, Lee knew he needed to make changes for the good of his health Lee engaged with the group straight away and over the weeks went from doing no exercise at all to gradually enjoying 5-mile runs every other day!

He ditched the daily fast-food and learnt how to manage his cravings for his favourite Dr Pepper drink and began changing his eating habits; all of this progress led to him achieving the biggest weight-loss of over 6kg – a feat he never thought he’d reach.

“I honestly don’t know where I’d be without the programme. It’s made me have a much more positive outlook and feel more in control of my life’” Lee explained.

“Training and learning inside of the Stadium of Light was a fantastic experience and so inspiring.

“I hadn’t done any running in almost 12 years – now I’ve bought a FitBit and I’m doing 3-4 5-mile runs a week!”

FIT FANS has helped thousands of people to achieve long-term improvements in weight loss, physical activity, diet and general well-being.

The main aims of the programme are to:

  • Improve your eating habits
  • Cut down on alcohol
  • Increase your activity levels – one step at a time!
  • Reduce your weight and waistline
  • Support each other to stay on track
