WHEN DID YOU START DEVELOPING A WEIGHT PROBLEM?

I was big throughout my whole childhood. My whole family was overweight and I remember eating huge amounts of food everyday.

HOW DID YOUR WEIGHT AFFECT ANY ASPECT(S) OF YOUR LIFE?
I had low self confidence throughout my childhood despite my good life. I found it hard to make friends and it still effects me now.

WHAT WAS THE “TURNING POINT” THAT GOT YOU STARTED ON YOUR WEIGHT LOSS JOURNEY?
After ending a relationship I decided it was time to change, unfortunately at the time I got an infection that made me sick for about 3 months, having that made my stomach shrink a lot

HOW DID YOU GET STARTED?
Once I was healthy enough I started working out, even just getting out of the house, going to the beach etc I changed the way I ate, portion sizes; no fast food etc

HOW LONG AFTER YOU STARTED DID YOU BEGIN TO SEE RESULTS OF YOUR WEIGHT LOSS EFFORTS?
I started in around June 2015 and by December 2015 I had lost 25kg
I didn’t really notice my results it was more friends telling me how small i was getting haha

WHAT WAS THE HARDEST PART?
A lot of people assumed I was on drugs, the same time I got sick a close friend of mine was in an accident and as you can imagine nobody noticed I was sick with everything else going on.
A lot of people believed I couldn’t do it, and that my goal of 75kg was way to small
I struggled with motivation to keep going, but it was a lot to do with the fact that I couldn’t find a job and now my life’s a lot better things are definitely looking up

DID YOU EVER WANT TO GIVE UP? WHAT KEPT YOU GOING?
No, I was so sick of being big once I started there was no going back ever
I felt like a person with no purpose or motivation, soo much has changed now
The prospect of a new better life kept me going

HOW LONG DID IT TAKE YOU TO LOSE MOST OF THE WEIGHT?
I have lost 53kgs in 1 1/2 years

DID YOU HAVE ANY NON-SCALE VICTORIES?
In the past 2 months since I started working the excess skin around my stomach has dramatically decreased

WHAT DOES YOUR DAILY DIET LOOK LIKE COMPARED TO WHEN YOU WERE HEAVIER?
I used to eat 3 large meals a day including multiple snacks; chips, pies, pizza, chocolate, lollies etc washed down with fizzy drink and up to 4-5 373ml red bulls a day
Now I’ve completely cut out bread and most fast foods, I usually eat cheese+crackers for breakfast, and I snack on fruit/ nuts throughout the day, for dinner lately I’ve been having couscous and tuna with potato salad
Now i will only have the occasional redbull/fizzy when I’m working

HOW DOES YOUR PHYSICAL ACTIVITY COMPARE TO WHEN YOU WERE HEAVIER?
I work as a store assistant for a busy retailer which includes everything from till to running stock, I am constantly on my feet and a lot more active in my general lifestyle
I used to get driven places and now i prefer to walk

MY WEIGHT LOSS TIPS & TRICKS

  1. Pick out the tiniest details that you love about yourself everyday
  2. Throw out your old clothes, even if you go op shopping to get new ones
  3. Don’t gauge your success against other people’s or the number on the scales
  4. Have atleast 1 chill-down exercise that you love to do; yoga, swimming, hiking etc for the days when you are too sore to do a proper workout
