That’s me on left 7 years ago, after a 10 hour brain/spine surgery. .
I was the fittest I had ever been.
One night out for dinner, I took a larger mouthful of my meal and couldn’t swallow it. My tongue just wouldn’t work. I could barley talk either. Fair to say I freaked out. .
10 days later I’m in for the first surgery I had ever had. On my brain. .
I spent the next 2 months bed ridden, the surgery and pain killers messed me up.
I went downhill fast, all could eat was soup and yogurt. I lost 12kg in the months. .
Eventually I could start eating solid foods again, they weren’t the the best choices. I started putting weight back on.... all fat.
Until one day enough was enough and I took action to get my life back. I wrote myself a diet and program that was easy to stick too. .
1 year later I was almost back to the fitness pre surgery. It wasn’t easy. Buy my god it was worth it. .
Fast forward 6 years to the pic on the left, I have my own gym I run helping people, the way I had to help myself. .
My passion is helping others, everyone has the right to live without struggle. .
