Before I started my journey with TeamTank, I was at my lowest point and heaviest in weight. Growing up I had always been the athletic one and never really bothered about my diet or weight. This all changed when I moved away for university and the weight piled on. I tried the 1200kcal diet as well as going to the gym but found I was binging more and not really trying in the gym. This started the downward spiral and giving up on myself because I wasn’t seeing progress and thinking what’s the point? I knew I wasn’t happy with the way I looked or felt and knew that only I could fix it. After seeing Instagram posts of other peoples’ progress, I decided to take the plunge and message Martin.
I knew that this was going to be a long journey and not just a quick fix and it was going to take time and hard work but most of all patience.
My initial reaction after speaking with Martin was what have I done? I can’t do this; he’s going to make me go to the gym and eat healthy and I’m not going to be able to stick to this. However, after our first proper conversation I was surprised to find that it was me who was in control. I done my best to tick all the boxes all whilst enjoying the foods I liked and training in a way that I enjoyed. It has truly been a rollercoaster of emotions of highs and lows, but it has been one of my best decisions ever.
I have not only met some amazing people throughout my journey who have inspired and helped me along the way, but I have a newfound knowledge surrounding nutrition and training and massive lifestyle change.
I am grateful for the help TeamTank has given me in getting my confidence back and learning to love myself again with a special thanks to Martin who was always there to give me a kick up the backside whenever I needed it.
