Man loses 7st after seeing picture of himself on Google Street View
A man has lost 7st after seeing a photo of himself looking extremely overweight on Google Street View.
Bob Mewse weighted 21st 3lb after years of indulging in his favourite high-sugar, high-fat foods, such as cakes and biscuits.
The 56-year-old was horrified a year ago when he looked for his house on Google Street View and spotted his overweight frame stood on the pavement.
“I’d been thinking about losing weight for some time but after seeing that picture, I knew that I actually had to do something about it,” he said.
Mr Mewse, from Bristol, now weighs 14st and encouraged others to make lifestyle changes, stating that he feels much healthier now.
Last week, the Weston Mercury reported that Kelly Mahoney from Somerset had made it to the final of a slimming competition and got to meet former Hollyoaks star Ricky Whittle.
