Iain Pope and Shaun Milne call themselves “two lardy Scottish lads” and are using 2011 to lose some weight. Five stone in fact. Each.
Iain starts the year weighing in at 291lbs and Shaun at 238lbs. Documenting their journey via their website and other social media methods, the pair are promising to be completely honest about their food and fitness for the next 12 months. Having read their first few entries, we reckon it’s also going to be a pretty humorous journey as they use their journalist skills to articulate what is sure to be a painful and emotional time.
The pair of them are losing weight for health reasons, but also to raise some money for charity. Have a look at Iain’s charity page for Macmillan Cancer Support and Shaun’s charity page for Mountain Rescue Committee of Scotland.
We will be following Iain and Shaun’s progress and will interview them periodically as their weight drops. They already have a personal trainer, but if you think you could offer any help or motivation, feel free to drop them a line.
Good luck lads!
