Rob & Yvonne Cullen
Together 22 years, married 14, and parents of two young boys Liam and Tommy. Like so many couples and families out there, we fell into the trap of convenient food, takeaways and eating out, thinking we were far to busy to cook!
After our first holiday alone without the boys, we returned feeling tired, overweight and almost depressed. Our weight had increased and our energy levels had decreased, therefore we knew something had to change. We set ourselves goals, supported each other and committed to losing weight together. Over the course of two years, we went on to lose a whopping 13 stone. Now we help each other achieve their goals no matter how big or small they are by making small permanent changes. The only thing you need to give up is excuses!
What does an equal society look like for you?
For us equality means no judgement – treating everyone with the same empathy, respect, fairness and kindness. This is something we’ve tried to instil in our own boys and hope these traits stay with them throughout adulthood.
