How much weight must I have lost in order to sell my weight loss story?

Amazing Weight Loss StoriesWe will consider any weight loss story. Most weight loss stories are picture-led so it helps if you have clear, full-length shots of you before and after your weight loss.  The better the photos, the more money you will be able to achieve for your story.

Even if you don’t have great photos, give us a try.  Sometimes it’s the story behind the weight loss that is of interest to our readers.  We’re also interested in crazy new ways that you’ve found to lose weight.  Whatever your weight loss story, give us a try.

If you’re thinking of going on a weight loss journey, no matter how much you don’t want to, make sure you take a few good full-length ‘before’ photos.  We know it’s uncomfortable if you don’t like your body, but you can file them away and never have to look at them until you’ve completed your journey.

Trust us, you’ll be glad you took before photos to document your success.

90% of people wishing to sell a weigh loss story to the press don’t have ‘before’ photos because they simply avoided having their picture taken at any cost.  We get it, but think about how proud you’ll feel comparing the two images, and being able to make money out of your amazing results!

Once you make contact, one of our friendly team will give you a call to find out more and let you know what the story is likely to be worth based on recent sales of similar stories.

Bigger than the PyramidsThe moment you’re happy we’ll send a short ‘story teaser’ (like a written movie trailer) to the national editors.  They’ll come back with offers for your story and we’ll let you know who has made the highest bid.

    I just thought I would share my story. I have lost an amazing 5 stone! But all these supplements and diet pills to me are silly. I did it by myself swimming eating well. Low carbs and no snacking. It is a lifestyle now and so easy for people who want to shift the extra weight. I swam 3-4 times a week and I also go to the gym now. Who needs diet pills? Not me!!
