86-Year-Old Grandfather’s Health Journey Instagram Page Is One Of The Internet’s Favorite Things Right Now
There are hundreds of Instagram pages dedicated to helping you lose weight. Whether it be through helpful recipes, motivational quotes, or before-and-after photographs, there seems to be no shortage. While each of these pages is unique in their own way, there is one fitness page that’s gained a lot of attention in the last couple of months.
86 And Going Strong
When eighty six-year-old UK resident David Cyril decided to lose weight, he thought it would be a good idea to share his journey through Instagram. His page designed to track his weight loss through a message of positivity and inspiration.
After suffering a heart attack on the twenty-sixth of September, David created the page and got right to work. Through the help of his daughter, David shared how he’d been trying to cut down for years with no success.
A Positive Approach
Undeterred by his failure, Cyril started posting various pictures documenting his journey. There are pictures of him smiling wide as he eats healthy food, prepares meals, and gives instruction on how to cook.
Through his journey, Cyril has lost a total of four and a half pounds or the one stone. Through the help of his followers and his continued regiment of diet and exercise, he hopes to lose a total of three more stone, or close to fifty pounds.
David’s journey has not only held him accountable in losing weight but has inspired others on Instagram to do so as well. With a current following of over one hundred thousand people, David has quite a following.
With the combination of his positive posts and equally positive message, it is no wonder the internet is in love with him. With no sign of stopping and his continued posts promoting his healthy, fun lifestyle, it seems there is no end in sight to what David can do with his life.
