Losing It

My mad, crazy journey to health and beyond

About

Stories like mine usually begin ‘I’ve struggled with being overweight my whole life’. Except in my case that’s not true. I put on weight after university when there was no-one to see or judge how much Cuervo or KFC I was shoving into myself. And then I found the secret prize at the bottom of every takeaway bag – morbid obesity!

But while I may not have struggled with being overweight my whole life, what I have struggled with is keeping the weight off permanently. I’ve gone up, down, up, down and up again, like some sort of yo-yo on crack. In fact you can read the whole sad story here. It’s been an exhausting ride, and I’m thoroughly sick of it.

That’s why in July 2013, I made a commitment to myself to lose the weight, and lose it permanently this time. So far I’ve lost over 20kg* thanks to low carb eating and consistent weight training. But I’ve still got a long way to go. That’s why I created this blog – a way for me to share my story, stay accountable for my goals, and hopefully inspire other people to take the first step towards theirs.

So join me as I walk the road to wellness, losing it in the healthiest way possible for mind, body and soul.

Starting weight: 134.4kg

Goal weight: 65kg

*Want to see? Here’s a ‘before’ and ‘during’ (the ‘after’ is a long way off) taken first in January, then in November 2013. Same people in both pics. I’m the one on the left, in case you’re wondering.
