"Exercise wasn't a part of my life and at 176 kg's it showed. A good friend of mine said that we were going to get me a personal trainer and the rest is history. Pretty much everything for me has changed I'm no longer a couch potato. I need to get out of the house and be active. I enjoy going out now knowing that I'm not being stared at because of my size. With this outlook my life has changed dramatically. I have more energy, conﬁdence and now can do things previously I couldn't like going on rides in theme parks, sitting anywhere on a plane, not worrying if a restaurant chair has arms.
Shopping is walking in and having a choice of suits that will ﬁt me right off the rack. In total I lost 83kg and I've gone from wearing 7X-8X to a men's Large as well as competed in the Gold Coast half marathon".
