I grew up being very active in school sports like rugby, athletics and cricket. Gym based workouts also formed part of my daily routine during high school. So I could classify myself as a very active person during that time period.
When leaving high school I weighed 94kg with a body fat percentage around 10%. You quickly realize your life outside the active school life will not maintain that body weight and body fat percentage for very long. Before the end of my first year of finishing high school I hit the 100kg mark, a figure I thought I would never see for myself on the scale. From there it was a constant battle to get my weight back to a point where I could feel good about myself.
I did manage at times to get back to an acceptable weight but it was short lived, as I would immediately turn back to my old ways as soon as I have reached my goal with the result of ending up exactly where you started within a short while. This constant up and down battle has a negative effect on your mindset against any type of meal plan or training program. I lived like this for many years until I reached a point where I weighed 113.5kg. I realised that something drastic had to change to the type of lifestyle I maintained. This was when I decided to enter the USN Body Makeover Challenge. The challenge focuses more on the lifestyle change than just a transformation, and this was exactly what I needed.
The USN Body Makeover Challenge made me realise that it is not that difficult to make that change and focus on the healthier options in life. During my challenge I lost 24.5kg and 20.8% body fat! If I could do it so could anybody else!
I am very grateful for USN who sets up these opportunities for a normal person like me to realise that it is possible if you set your mind to it, TO MAKE THAT CHANGE!
