Just want to thank all the unslim Staff and Members for all the Help and Support that you have shown us with different ways to cook and exercise ideas.
As most of the members and staff knows a bit about the Reddin Family and for those people who don’t I will give you a quick rundown on how it all started.
We got involed in the Unslim Shape up Family Challenge for 6 weeks so this is our story so far
We found the strength to admit to the nation on TV (Ireland am) that we need help to tackle our weight issues problem and also our lifestyle this was one of the hardest thing we ever had to do.
Now we need all your help to continue with our journey and achieve the results, A Big Thank you to all our friends and family for your kindness and your support. We appreciate it more than use will ever know.
As every mother and father out there knows kids are cruel and sometimes they don’t mean it and other times they do. My seven year old daughter Taylor came home from school a few times crying after begin call Fat or your mammy and daddy are so fat, as you can imagine how as a mother that made me feel so i amde a promise to her sweetheart this is all for you, you are our inspiration to do this No one will ever make you feel sad again when they call Mammy and Daddy fat No nobody will ever call you Fat again
Sweetheart We Love you more than words can ever say.
So on the 29.02.2012 our journey begin we went to our first’s unslim club meeting in Crumlin and meet up with the lovely Fiona Lycett
Paul weight was at 22 stone and 3 pound and 2 ounce
My weight was at 16 stone 4 pound and 6 ounce
Taylor weight was at 7 stone 7 pound 6 ounce
What a shock.
We both work Full time I work for Railway Procurement Agency Paul works shift so my mum takes care of our two Girls and she gives them their dinner so we when we got home in the evenings after bringing Taylor to her Irish dancing, Swimming, Hip Hop Drama group it would be after 8 most nights before we would get home and Paul would be working shift so the fast food places would get a call and this meant use given the kids more food. It was shock to the system with No more ...fast foods and no junk food. Excerising was a never in our house untill we meet the lovely Paddy Cunningham who show use that excrising can be fun.
Now the Reddin Family are doing good. Paul is doing very well up to last week 28/03/2012 he was down 1 stone 9 pound so proud of him (keep up the good work)
Taylor is just under 7 pounds (love you). This week has been a bad week for me as i have been sick again but back on track.
Now even Paul is cooking, We are planning our meals in advance it just makes life a lot easier and we are tasting food when we go shopping now we look at what we are putting in our trolley. Were as before we never did
I am so proud of Taylor since we started the unslim family Challenge she has a spark about her I just can’t explain. She is helping us with the cooking and telling us ok time for our walks and the best think is the kids in school who use to call her names are her friends because she explained to them that being call fat is not very nice her motto is now I am doing something about my life style about it what’s there excuse for been nasty . To-night is the last night for the six weeks family challenge. will let you all know tommrow how we got on.
Just want to thank everyone for the support and let’s keep the Spirit of Unslim going for another 40 years
