Peter Mullen lost 5 stone

"Two and a half years ago, I weighed in at Markievicz Pharmacy, Sligo for the first time.     I weighed 18 stone and 11 pounds (120kg). My BMI was 37 which is in the Super Obese category.  I realised that I had to do something about my weight.   I was shocked at the way I saw myself move on a CCTV video,   I moved like an old man and so I finally decided it was time to take action.   I was tired all the time and just wanted to sit in the chair.     My daughter was starting school and I knew I should lose the weight to be able to play and look after her.  

I had an ongoing problem with a bone in my toe for several years which wouldn’t heal.  This meant that I couldn’t walk properly and gave me knee, hip and back pain as I couldn’t put my foot down properly.   Even putting my socks on was an effort to bend.

I’d always been a very fussy eater and I only ate plain food, but I know now that I was eating too much of it.   Now that I’ve lost the weight, my food tastes are completely changed,   it’s like a re-boot.    I know that I have to be sensible and keep a check on my weight with the help of Markieivicz Pharmacy.    I still use the NewWeigh Meal Replacement Plan bars to keep me right, as I travel a lot for work and it’s handy to just pop some in my travel bag.   I use the bars a bit more after holidays, but now I know I can manage my weight.  The support and advice from the Markievicz Pharmacy kept me going and it’s been a real education.

I now have a much better outlook on food and health.   I can run and walk without pain which I would never have been able to do before.    My toe has healed up after years.  Losing weight has given me a huge lift and I am now able to work hard and I'm tired for the right reasons, not because I am carrying extra weight.

I tell people that I have lost over 5 stone (31kg) and people are amazed.  They think I must have been ill, but I am actually the healthiest I’ve ever been!"
