James Argent says he managed to lose a load of weight and get down to his target weight because he ‘manifested’ it.
Arg, as he’s known on The Only Way is Essex, has managed to lose 11 stone on his journey to get into shape. You can see him 'manifesting' the incredible weight loss below:
The 34-year-old shared a couple of pieces of content, one before and one after, showcasing his dramatic body transformation.
As you can see, the difference is pretty striking.
In the video, shared alongside a photo, he looks much larger than he does in the second, where he’s slimmed right down and wears a Christmas t-shirt with The Snowman on it.
Argent explained to his followers: “I spoke this into existence. Dream It. Believe It. Become It! Merry Christmas Everyone, Love Arg.”
Then, in a video, Arg was stood in a fitness studio saying: “By Christmas or possibly even the end of the summer, this is gonna be shredded, the back fat is going to be gone, the thighs are going to be skinny and the arms are going to be pumped.”
Well, he’s definitely done well to get to where he is.
Most of us pile on a bit of weight at Christmas, but not this guy.
Arg added: “I’m going to be fit as a fiddle! Fit and strong.”
So, the whole thing started because he was warned by his doctors that he needed to get rid of some of the extra luggage that he was carrying.
The medical staff said there was a chance that he’d die if he didn’t come down from his heaviest weight of 27 stone.
Now, he’s managed to get down to his target weight of 15 stone and seven pounds, which is great going.
Imagine being able to lose more than 11 stone so quickly, it must be a load of hard work.
He also underwent a gastric sleeve operation to help him along the way.
That came after he completed treatment in a rehabilitation clinic after two overdoses that nearly killed him.
Now, he’s all about the fitness.
Earlier in the year, he told Steph’s Packed Lunch how he felt at his lowest ebb.
He said: “It felt horrible, I was always extremely uncomfortable, I couldn’t look at myself in the mirror.
“It felt depressing and it just wasn’t me.
“Now I’m starting to feel like myself again and I’m excited about what the future is going to bring.’
“It was scary being 27 stone…
“It was serious, doctors were telling me how dangerous it was…
“I knew it was something I had to address pretty quickly.
“[It was] nerve-wracking leading up to [the surgery, but] it’s the best thing I’ve ever done. I’m over six weeks post-surgery and I feel great.”
