Henderson on confidence gained from weight loss journey: "I look at myself on TV and I'm looking a lot better"
John Henderson lost a lot of weight and is still embarking on his weight loss journey which began in lockdown.
Henderson has lost around four stone in weight which is around 25-26 kilograms and admits there is more to go but he is feeling confident again.
"I actually enjoy the walking now. It's something when the lockdown came I decided to start walking. In the last 10-20 years, I've always had an issue with my weight, I got diagnosed with diabetes back in 2011. I had a check up and something had to be done," said Henderson on RTL7.
"I just took to the talking. I can't get enough of it. It's helping me on the stage because I was a big lad, sweat a lot and I think the walking I'm getting fitter."
"I've lost over four stone (25-26kgs) and I'm only halfway to where I want to be. I still feel I'm far too big. I'll address it and keep doing it."
Embarrassment to confidence
He admitted he did feel embarrassed watching himself on TV but this has now changed slightly as he continues to lose weight.
"I used to watch it back with my mates and think you're huge. It got to the point that I had to do something about it. That's what I'm doing now."
"I feel confident in myself now. I look at myself on TV and I'm still a long way to go but I'm looking a lot better."
