Transformations

Phil's Story

 

What did you find most challenging in your day to day life before you started BBM?

Just everything about life in general. I had zero self-confidence and I wouldn’t go out to public places because I was ashamed to be seen and would always worry about people staring. I kept myself locked away from the world and when I got a condition on my right leg everything went downhill, I felt depressed and it was even taking a toll on my relationship. It was not a good place to be at.

 

What made you start BBM?

Long story short I was in hospital for a leg infection and the doctor told me that if I wasn’t going to do anything with my weight that the next time he will see me is in the morgue. Those words hit me and I knew when I got out I had to do something about my health.

What has been the biggest/most noticeable change for you since starting?

Aw man where do I start! To be honest EVERYTHING about my life has changed its like I’m reborn again. My mindset has changed majorly, I don’t eat like I use to and I don’t have any more fizzys or sweet drinks (I was bad with fizzy drinks). I’m out and about everyday my confidence has shot to the roof. I’m living my best life and I’m loving it. I"M JUST DAMN HAPPY!! What are your words of advice to those starting? Don’t worry about what others think, this is your journey not theirs. Set some realistic goals be patient and work towards it one step at a time. Above all Quit making EXCUSES.

 

 

From Stroke to Smashing Life

Whitney's Story

 

What did you find most challenging in your day to day life before you started BBM?

Everything! At my worst it would take an hour or so to mentally prepare myself to just get out of bed. Walking anywhere was a struggle, going out in public then being out in public was the hardest as my anxiety would be in overdrive. Just basic day to day things were challenging

 

What made you start BBM?

Being 23 and barely living, I lost myself in my depression, gave up on my goals and myself, I was basically wasting my life away which pushed me to make a change

What has been the biggest/most noticeable change for you since starting? 

My whole life has completely changed for the better. The biggest difference is my mental health, knowing I can achieve anything and make it through hard times. Making my life a priority and living every day, taking opportunities, growing confidence, having the mental strength to face challenges and push my limits.

 

What are your words of advice to those starting?

Stop thinking and just start! Be patient and make small goals / changes along the way so you don’t get overwhelmed. Focus on your why and face the challenges of the journey with no excuses. Surround yourself with people who genuinely support what’s right for you!
