I WAS TIRED OF BEING THE FAT FRIEND

A man who was fed up of being called the fat friend has shed nearly 19 stone.

Nathan Ranklin (30) from Peckham in London was told by doctors aged 14 that if nothing was done about his body size he would not make his 30th birthday. He realised he needed to do something about his weight after he tipped the scales at 36st 9lbs.

“When I was at my biggest I couldn't walk into normal shops and buy my clothes because they didn't have big enough sizes. You wouldn't believe how excited I was when I walked into Primark and seen tops for about £5. The t-shirts that I had to buy were at least £25.'

Nathan describes himself as a fitness freak as he is excited to wake up every morning for a 5k run or to get out on his bike for a 35-mile cycle.

Nathan said: 'I have completely turned my life around. Being slim is completely alien to me, I feel like a kid at Christmas, I am just so excited about everything now.
