James Argent has shared his first big workout since vowing to lose 10 stone, but he admits it was a struggle.
The TOWIE star, who has seen weight pile on in recent months, posted a video from his local boxing gym, where he worked up a sweat with his trainer.
The 31-year-old threw some decent punches in the clip, but he admitted he is so unfit at the moment that he found it "difficult to breathe".
He is determined to shed a mammoth amount of weight, after being warned he is on "death row".
He captioned his latest post with: "And so the journey begins...
"It’s not easy to move & I found it difficult to breathe but I’ve made a start. I’m excited to compare this video to one in a few months time! 🥊
"Thanks for the love & support! #hardwork #dedication ❤️ #achesandpains."

Earlier this week, Arg appeared on This Morning to talk openly about his weight battle.He was advised by TV's Dr Ranj to lose a whopping 10 stone and 17 inches from his waist to reach a healthy BMI.
A stunned Arg admitted on the show: "It's quite scary. Ten stone is a hell of a lot of weight, it seems like a marathon.
"It's not going to be a quick fix."

Former TOWIE star Jess Wright told him: "You’ve got this James 💙👊🏽."
And their co-star Chloe Meadows added: "Go on Arg! 💪🏻."
The star, who recently split from on and off girlfriend Gemma Collins, has yo-yoed over the years.
He has been a lot slimmer in the past and is determined to get back there.
Good luck, Arg!
