Weight is an issue with almost everyone -- practically every second person you meet wants to shed a couple of kilos or more before their weight reading is satisfactory in their eyes.
We want readers to share their weight loss stories with us. Were you once overweight, and anxious regarding what other people thought of your physical appearance?
Did being fat undermine your confidence?
How did you manage to drop the excess kilos, and what inspired you to do it?
Come, share your inspirational weight-loss stories with others, so they too may benefit from your strategy.
Email your contributions to firstname.lastname@example.org, along with your name, age, occupation, contact details, and photographs of yourself both before and after your weight loss. We'll publish the best entries right here on Get Ahead. Who knows? Your story may just help someone else lose weight and gain confidence.
