Rick was definitely 25 ½ stones, although he stopped weighing for a few years so his highest weight could have been much higher. I topped the scales at 15 stones.Rachel Wilcock

How it all started
Roll back to November 2015 and we decided to finally get around to losing that ‘last stone’ each. We were work colleagues and thought it would be cool to join a local group as we both loved being around people.
After all these years, nothing much had changed! Nobody was being totally explicit about calories, and not many seemed to be emphasising the importance of lifestyle transformation to ensure the weight didn’t return once it had been lost. This is despite our best doctors, professors and academics advising this approach to the NHS. These are people who chose their careers not through any commercial interest or financial gain, just with a huge desire to help people.
So, with nothing else out there, Be Strong was born and the rest is history. We spent the first year developing techniques and strategies to help people develop goals, make plans and achieve success. It worked, and lots of people have since benefited from our advice and knowledge.
We emphasise that our approach is for longer term success, with a huge amount of effort concentrated on ‘regain prevention’ – reducing the risk of regaining any weight that people lose.
It’s 11pm – you find yourself staring into the fridge, you don’t actually remember how you got there, but there you are, once again, with the fridge door wide open looking for something to eat. You’re not even hungry, eating through habit, boredom or just for entertainment.
We remember when we were in that same place and provide lots of tips, advice and wisdom to enable your success. Come and join us – it’s time to Be Strong!Rick & Rachel
