I WANT MY STORY TO BE YOUR STORY!
***Come along and learn how I lost 42kgs with a change of mindset and now live an entirely different life!***
Four years ago I was fat, unhappy and had a strong dislike of myself.
Despite the positive and confident exterior I personified, each night I went to bed knowing there was a better way of living yet I still did nothing about it.
The way I cared for my health represented how I cared for the rest of my life and it impacted upon my relationships, my results at University and my drive for life.
I disliked going out with my friends as I felt I was the elephant of the herd, I drank too much to hide my insecurities, and I ate too much food as a form of comfort to mask my actual feelings about how my life was progressing.
At 20 years old, I shopped at a plus size shop and wore a size 24 dress. I would binge and then starve myself. I had moments of such self-hatred that I forced my fingers down my throat, and the cycle would continue.
I tried every diet under the sun. You name it, I tried it. I thought I had tried EVERYTHING, and I continually lost hope that I would ever be able to lose weight. This cycle continued over a number of years, all whilst my self esteem and self worth continued to plummet.
I looked in the mirror on a daily basis and hated what stared back at me. I would stand there in my College dorm room crying and on occasion I would feel such anger and disappointment at myself I would punch my cupboard door out of disgust.
I numbed my vulnerability and never dealt with my issues and thus lived through an exterior which did not replicate the thoughts going through my head.
It took a really tough time mentally to make the decision that enough was enough.
I changed my course, shifted my mindset and hopped aboard the roller coaster of a weight loss journey.
Having lost 42kgs, it is now my time to give back through sharing my story and my lessons learnt along the way.
I want my story to be your story.
I have made it my mission in life to use my story as just one example of how possible weight loss is. I want to share my story not to impress you, but to impress upon anyone that if you shift the way in which you view diet and exercise, you have the ability to achieve anything you set your mind to.
Come along to the presentation to learn what I implemented in my life, what I have changed, and most importantly my lessons learnt which you can replicate in your own life to achieve a life of happiness, health and self love and worth.
