My Story

Meet Unislimmer of the Year Finalist Ray Flaherty. When Ray first joined Unislim Castlebar  with Leader Triona Callaghan in September 2015 he weighed in at 20st 11.5lbs. Roll on 1 year later he is now a very healthy 11st 9.5lbs. That’s a total weight loss of 9st 2lbs, and doesn’t he look amazing!

”As I unsuccessfully tried to fit into a size 44 suit for a job interview in September 2015, I realized enough was enough.

I would have classed myself as the typical Yo-Yo dieter, having struggled with my weight since my school days.  I remember being bullied from a young age over my weight.  Kids at school would actually sing songs about my size – I was embarrassed and ashamed.  It came to a stage that I hated getting out of bed.

My life revolved around taking care of everyone else in my life, deflecting from my own needs.  Having gone back to college in 2010, I dealt with the stress of my studies by comfort eating.  Which in turn, made my weight issues even worse.

Over the years, I can honestly say that I have tried every slimming club, gimmick, even depriving myself of food.  But nothing clicked. I can now safely say, a year later, and over 9 stone lighter, that it has now clicked, thanks to Unislim.

The day I joined Unislim, I had a good talk with myself on the drive home and decided that I was putting myself first and doing it for me. I followed the Unislim Forever Free plan & exercised regularly.

I began to notice how good I felt eating healthy and how much my energy levels were soaring.  I found my love of cooking – I now bake my own bread and cook my meals from scratch.

As the weeks passed the weight started to come off other people started to take notice too! I started to receive compliments on how healthy I looked and I began to feel like a new man.

I am a creative person, so I used my skills to create a motivational space in my home where I have framed all my Unislim certificates for each stone I lost. I look at them daily as a gentle reminder of how much I have achieved. The biggest reminder of my achievement comes every time I look at my twin sister – she weighs 9 stone – the same as what I lost!

It really has been and continues to be an amazing journey and a complete lifestyle change. I now use my success to help others achieve their weight loss goals and have become a Unislim Leader in Tuam, Castlerea and Ballaghderreen.

My top tip that I offer my members is to focus on how good you feel when you are eating well, it’s the best motivator you could have!”
