A half tub of ice-cream, an entire bag of lollies, a large packet of chips. Looking back, it's fair to say I love food and at times struggled to control the amount of food I ate. When I saw my Year 11 School Formal photos, I knew behind the smile I was tired of being overweight. I finally spoke with my parents who supported me in joining Vision Personal Training Wollongong.
It felt the right time - I needed to do something and finally felt I could. It's true what people say "motivation does not come before the action. You have to do the action THEN motivation follows" - Now I love being active.
I found myself enjoying exercise for the first time in my life and is such a normal part of my life now. I even get a bit grumpy if I skip it for a few days. I'm 20kgs lighter, the lightest I have been since starting high school, I hardly have any asthma or shortness of breath and I've met and made a whole new group of friends on this health journey with me, I've done it independently from my parents but mostly I'm proud of how I've done this for me.
