Former PN candidate praised for amazing weight loss journey

Former PN candidate praised for amazing weight loss journey
May 10 2022 Share

Alan Abela-Wadge, a former PN candidate and councillor, shared his amazing weight loss journey on his social media, receiving a shower of praise in response. 

Wadge went on to explain how he began his journey to better health in 2020, revealing that he was a ‘super obese 200kg+, chain smoking 33-year-old that suffered from high blood pressure that couldn’t walk for more than 5 minutes without sitting down.’

However, he has ‘finally hit double digits’ he wrote, saying that for the first time in his adult life, he is wearing under 100kg. ‘What a journey it’s been so far.’ 

‘I clearly remember going for a routine check up to my doctor and he looked worryingly at me. He told me bluntly that if I continue this path, I wouldn’t live past my 40th birthday.’

Upon hearing this, he threw away his cigarettes and did not touch one since. He went on to research and opted for a gastric bypass and started a pre-op diet. ’This is a way of life now!’ 

‘This is not a race, this is a marathon. A marathon that never ends. We only have 1 body, let’s ensure that we give it its best chance to last us as long as possible.’

A Taiwanese YouTuber by the name of Huang Jerry Xiaojie revealed his latest genius creation for anyone who doesn’t want any furry companions at home and opted for some fish instead. 

The man invented a specialised fish tank that allows him to take his goldfish out for a walk. The pram-like contraption has a battery powered filtration system, air pump for oxygen and a lighting system.

After showing us how he created the machine, he took it out for a stroll. People were, understandably enough, fascinated by the pram and stopped to take photos with it.

Pro-choice activist assaulted by driver during protest in Aldo Moro Road

As she held a roadside protest on Monday holding a placard for the legalisation of abortion in Malta, professor Isabel Stabile was assaulted by another woman.

Stabile, a gynaecologist and member of Doctors for Choice, was shoved and insulted by a woman. The assailant, Stabile told Times of Malta, got out of her car and approached her.

‘She threatened to call the police. I said nothing’ said Stabile, before revealing that the woman then turned once again to shove her. This prompted the professor to file a police report. 

The assault was publicly denounced by Doctors for Choice, revealing that they decided to wear body cams from now on so that any such incidents will be caught on tape. ‘It is ironic that any pro-lifer should resort to violence to pass on their message’ said Stabile.
