“I was overweight my whole life, I got to 172kg at the age of 19. I was told I wouldn’t be able to lose the weight without lap band surgery. I didn’t let that get in my way. I started training at Derrimut Gym Caroline Springs in October 2012 and since then I have lost 97kg. The biggest challenge for me was staying motivated and focused to lose the weight. This is also one of my biggest accomplishments, along with undergoing massive surgery for excess skin removal. Training means everything to me, I can’t go a day without it. It’s the reason I wake up every morning.
Starting is the hardest part. Once you see results it does get easier. Believe in yourself.”
