A few weeks after coming back from holidays overseas we sat down to review all the photos. I couldn't recognize the person in all the photos and thought what was going on?

It's funny because you know but you don't actually realize how big you are until something like that. I knew after that I had to do something. 

You want to be around for as long as you can and when things like that are going the wrong direction that can have an impact on that. My family deserve better than that and especially with younger kids running around and participating in sports. You want to be able to help as much as you can and run around with them as much as you can.

In the first 6 -7 months I lost about 15 kilos and then steadily up and down I have lost a total of 23kg to date.

 

 

When I started I was a bit skeptical at first as I had tried some other ones that just didn't work that well. If you got a short-term gain out of it well it was very short lived. I had to start thinking about it as a lifestyle change and not a diet. 

It took me a while to put the weight on and obviously it was going to take a while to come off. 

I think it's the fear of failure that hold's a lot of people back, I know I was in that boat but I've realized that we learn from failures and as long as we keep going then we can always make it.

And since I have lost the weight I now find that my driving in the AMCA championships has improved as far as my focus and reflexes not to mention I had to buy a smaller seat for the car as I was sliding around in the old one!

If you're thinking about starting, just do it. you have nothing to lose and everything to gain. If you had a bad day or week you can always recover!

Thank you, Adam and the whole Man Shake team for helping me get my health back!
