“Without struggle, there is no progress.”

I am just like everyone else who has gone through with weightloss surgery, I have been on every diet known to man and sometimes succeeded. I have weighed as little as 62kgs and as much as 115kg and at 5″1 that’s no mean feat. I have done all the dangerous things to lose weight like excessive amounts of durmomine, laxatives, binging and purging and starving myself only to end up regaining all of the kilos I lost plus some of its friends.

Late in 2014 I started suffering high blood pressure, chest pains and all of those other nasty things that are associated with obesity. I basically never left my bed unless I was at work, I slept all the time and went through phases of terrible depression and anxiety which would lead to me being awful to all of the people I loved. My last straw was after yet another awful argument with my husband, he said to me “you hate yourself and you take it out on everyone else” …it was like I had been hit by lightning, he was right, I did hate myself, I was ashamed and embarrassed and felt worthless.

Fast forward to today and I am a completely different person, I haven’t only lost 47kgs but I have gained a life I never thought possible. Aside from the weightloss and all that comes with it I not have the confidence to chase dreams that I have had for most of my life.

Straight after surgery I created a facebook page with the intention of friends and family being able to follow my journey and within weeks I had hundreds of followers. This inspired me and I started posting food photos and recipes and the reactions I was getting were amazing.

Today I have more than 4000 followers over multiple social media, I have created two cookbooks and daily I am told how much I have inspired and encouraged people. I can’t believe how different my life is now and my only regret is that I didn’t have weightloss surgery earlier in my life.

Follow every one of your dreams and live life to the fullest!!!
Thanks for all your support, Bec xxx
