Arthur's inspirational video

I have posted this video before on this Forum - but reading a post this morning made me think that it is time to post it again.

Many who come here are struggling with their weight - and the enormity of what they are now thinking (to lose weight and get themselves fit)

Watch Arthur's video here!!

  • Thanks Bazza. I hadn't seen this before, but it is truly inspiring. I will be thinking about this when I go on my run tomorrow, and probably for many runs to come!

  • Brilliant ! Thanks for posting this again , Bazza

    What an inspiration this man is xxx

  • Thank you for sharing

    Truly awesome

  • That's an excellent film-thankyou bazza ๐Ÿ˜Š

  • Thanks Bazza! What an inspiration.

  • Loved that video. Wasn't it amazing to watch Arthur walk unaided at the end and even run?! Fantastic. I used to do loads of yoga until I had children and no time or energy left in me for it. Prior to giving birth I'd done an hour of yoga morning and night for years but never had to struggle like he did. He just kept battling on until he got there. I knew a guy who was morbidly obese, even bigger than Arthur at the beginning of the video but not disabled. He was diagnosed with diabetes and took up running to lose weight. I saw him again 2 years later and would never have recognised him. He was lean and athletic looking. Had joined a running club and was proud of his achievements and rightly so. His doctor had been amazed that he had completely sorted out his diabetes problem . Doctor said he had never seen anything like it before.

  • Sitting here with tears streaming down my face, what a man....what an inspiration.

    Thanks so much for sharing this video

  • That is an incredible story. True grit!

  • Thank you for re-posting this! His determination has really struck a chord. Like others I will think of Arthur as I run and the going gets tough.
