I got to the point where I would stop looking at the size of clothes, but then one day I woke up and went to get out of bed but couldn’t. I was stuck and had to roll off the bed. I walked across and stopped in front of the mirror for the first time in years and I thought to myself, what’s happened?
“With what I do, I see what families go through everyday having lost a loved one. I don’t want my family going through that grief and pain over me. I was made acutely aware of my own mortality and this was another turning point for me and confirmed what I knew before – I had to make a change before it was too late.”
