When Bob Mewse saw himself in this Google Street View image about a year ago, he was mortified about his appearance. He was so mortified, in fact, that he began a strict diet and exercise regiment to lose 45kgs.
According to Mewse, the image above was the motivation he needed to finally change his life:
I was horrified when I saw that photo. I was massive. My belly was sticking out and I looked huge. 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. I was in such bad condition that I was unable to walk and talk at the same time. My blood pressure was sky-high and I was getting back problems due to the excess weight I was carrying around.
Mewse lost a third of his body weight through a healthy diet and exercise regiment overseen by a personal trainer. So far he has maintained his new weight. [Telegraph]
