From a young age I was constantly dictated to, controlled and trampled over by everybody.
Family, so-called mates and girlfriends.
Never allowed to be my own person/make my decisions for myself.
I started weight training and martial arts in my late teens to improve myself - admittedly it took until my mid Thirties to get the nutrition right.
I got diagnosed with depression and anxiety at 25 and by the time I was 31 I was in a toxic relationship and job, eating my to mask my feelings and ballooned out to 115kg.
The next blow was getting into debt, losing and house and my relationship falling apart.
After deciding I had nothing left to lose and following every single stupid fad diet on the planet, I went for and passed my fitness instructor qualification and started tracking calories, protein and fibre.
I am now at 90kg, a personal trainer and Boxfit coach, have been in a loving relationship for 7 years and have a wonderful 3 year old boy.
METAL music has helped me through some of the toughest aspects of my life.
My advice for people is.
Life is to short to be a people pleaser and martyr.
When you start putting yourself first (in a non-selfish way) you become better to those around you.
Actions speak louder than words and its best to see the real in people than the good.
Quality means more than quantity and investing in your physical and mental well-being is the best investment as it improves all other aspects of life.
