I’ve worked with hundreds of clients and, don’t get me wrong, the physical changes are always incredible to witness. However, the most important change for me is the one that happens in a client’s head. It’s funny, as when most people set out to lose weight, improvement in mental health is almost an afterthought. The past year has been a tough one personally and I have seen a huge change in my mental health and well-being as a result. The end of 2017 has been…bizarre 🙄 Yet I honestly feel like I am finishing this year mentally stronger than I ever thought possible. I think back to who I was a few years ago and I feel like a completely different person. What I would do to give a pep talk to that 21-year-old terrified and under-confident ‘me’. Why am I writing this? Well if I can encourage just one person reading this to start thinking about themselves in a more positive light, I’d be the happiest guy alive. The moment you realise that you should be completely happy in your own skin, when you start to feel happy with the way your body looks and you really don’t give a shit what anyone else thinks of you...it’s a darn good feeling! You only get one go at life. Do you want to spend your one shot on this earth worrying what others think of you or how they view your actions? Do you have a goal that you’ve always wanted to achieve but you’ve been too scared to take the plunge? I used to work in elderly care and almost every patient would tell me that life goes by too fast. Do you want to look back in 10 years, 20 years, or 40 years time and say, "Oh I wish I did that when I had the chance"? I certainly don’t want that feeling. 2018 is going to be a huge year. I can’t wait to take my newfound confidence and smash down any obstacle that stands in my way and I want you to do exactly the same. I won’t lie to you (like a lot of internet folk 👀), I am in no way a ‘life coach’ or an expert on this ‘life’ stuff, but if you want someone to bounce ideas off, please drop me a direct message and I would love to help you out. So, who’s ready to kick 2018’s ass?
