Mick’s ‘Wake Up Call’ Helps Him to Lose Over 22kg

Every year, The Natural Way officially recognize the great efforts of our fabulous clients and run a National ‘Clinic Slimmer’ competition.  This year we have nine (9) fantastic finalists and I will write about each one of them over the coming weeks.  Let’s kick off with Mick Hull from Upper Coomera on the Gold Coast (one of two male entrants this year).  Mick’s story is not only inspirational but highlights how approaching a milestone in your life i.e. turning 50, can kick-start a healthy life-change.

Mick knew he had to do something about his weight – his sedentary job as a truck driver, combined with eating far too much junk food when calling into petrol stations, meant that the kilos were piling on very easily.  It wasn’t until Mick saw himself on TV, did he realize how big he was and it was time to do something about it.

Mick knew that he wasn’t getting any younger (with his 50th birthday only months away) and realized if he didn’t control his weight, he may not live to see his 15 year old daughter grow up.  On top of all that, his doctor had to increase his blood-pressure medication.  Mick’s dad passed away at a very young age, so he knew he was a high risk of being in the same boat, unless some drastic action took place.

Mick joined The Natural Way due to his wife achieving great results on the program.  Mick started his journey at 121.1kg, with his goal to be a couple of kilos ‘under the ton’.  From Day 1, Mick changed his bad habits:  no more snack food from service stations and making sure that he packed healthy lunches and fruit to snack on during the day.  After 29 weeks, Mick reached his goal of 98.5kg which means he shed 22.6kg!  WOW!  Mick is now a maintenance client who has kept his weight off beautifully and he is determined to never put the weight back on again.

You can vote for Mick – or one of our other success stories – at our ‘Clinic Slimmer Competition’ Facebook page.  The competition will go ‘live’ this Friday, 9th October and you will be amazed when you see the fantastic results that our slimmers have achieved.  Be sure to vote for your favourite as public vote will determine who our winner is and you get a chance to win $200 in our lucky voter prize draw.
