For the first time in many years I can say I am in a good place. I am currently 67.5kg and a size 10. Crossfit Origin has helped me find both a healthy body and in turn a healthy mind.
Go back 7 months. I was a size 18 and weighed 105kg, I had a BMI of over 35 which is in the range of ‘very obese’. I was struggling to cope personally with the way I looked. I knew I needed to make a lifetime change, not only for myself but my family. I was tired of my weight going up year after year.
The light bulb moment came when I was watching an NRL game one day. My weight had finally reached triple digits on the scales. I remember thinking to myself that I weigh the same weight as an NRL first grade forward. I knew that my life had to change and change immediately.
