Health: James ‘Arg’ Argent has set a new weight loss goal for himself, joking to his friends that he plans to be ‘half the guy he used to be’ (pictured in May)
A friend told the newspaper: “James has never felt better in his life and has lost weight much more quickly than he ever expected. It made him realize he could lose more weight, so he’s planning on just doing it.
“The only downside is that he has to buy a whole new wardrobe. But he throws away those things he no longer wears or that have drowned him so he doesn’t tend to pile on the pounds. James is making a change for life.”
It was previously said that James, who underwent a gastric sleeve operation, was terrified to leave the house because he was ashamed of his appearance but had already lost an impressive six stones.
The next reality star’s ambition is to swim the English Channel, and he also hopes to run a marathon.
TARGET: The former TOWIE star, 31, reached 27th during the lockdown and previously said he wants to lose 10th but now wants to shed 15th, more than half his body weight (pictured in 2019)
Arg previously spoke about his struggles with his weight during the lockdown while appearing on Channel 4’s Steph’s Packed lunch.
“I felt horrible,” he said, ”I was always so uncomfortable, I couldn’t look at myself in the mirror.
I was depressed and it wasn’t just me. Now I’m starting to feel like myself again and I’m excited about what the future will bring.
“It was scary being 27 stone… It was serious, the doctors were telling me how dangerous it was… I knew I had to treat it quickly.”
I am now four stone lighter. It really is a good start. Four stones out of 11 or 12 might look like a drop in the ocean but I’m glad I’ve really made progress.
Making the changes: James recently had a gastric sleeve after his weight rose to nearly 27 stones and he’s already thrown six stones (seen left in 2019, right in May)
I actually feel happier, I feel healthier already, I’m lighter on my toes, and I’m more confident. I really love life at the moment.
He also praised the sleeve gastrectomy as “the best thing I’ve ever done”.
Argh also said that he sometimes worried about having his picture taken when he left the house.
He said, “There can be a lot of pressure… There have been times when I was at my biggest, I felt uncomfortable leaving the house and sometimes I would wait until it was dark before leaving the house because I would be aware that taking pictures of me…”
“Now I’m at where I am on this journey, gradually losing weight and accepting the way I look now.”
Motivation: James threw all of his XXL clothes off in an effort to keep himself motivated on his weight loss journey (pictured in May)
James’ close friend and former TOWIE star Mark Wright recently told MailOnline that he’s helping his friend lose weight.
He explained: ‘With Arg it’s all about motivation, just keeping him motivated, just complimenting him and telling him he can do it.
We trained together a few times and really changed his lifestyle. Make sure he gets up and does the exercise first thing because otherwise he won’t.
Just go through the suggestions and help him live how I live. Diet, eat the right foods, and let him know that he doesn’t have to eat the bad foods he chooses sometimes.
He’s doing really well and I think in a few months we’ll see a really massive change in him. It will look the best he’s ever looked at.
“He’s doing very well, exceptionally well, and I’m very proud of him.”
His encouragement: Mark Wright, a friend of James, praised Hoym after his sleeve gastrectomy, telling exclusively to MailOnline: “It works very well, very well.”
