I attended the ANB work shop in Melbourne yesterday. Not sure if u remember me but I was the one who said I felt like an elephant doing the t-walk.
Yesterday u definitely became my new role model you were so down to earth and easy going and said exactly how it is. Before coming to the workshop yesterday I was starting to get depressed and lonely (even tho I have lots of friends, but not ones who fully understand my goal). I suffered depression when I was a teenager and didn't want to go back to that place.
When I was 17 I tried to commit suicide it was the lowest point in my life. I lost my dad, brother and best friend all tragically in the space of 6 years, which added to it but I also hated me.
So when I was 19 I took off to Australia lived in the outback for over a yr. and then moved to a little town in south Australia for over 6 months. I joined a gym became friendly with the owner and he wanted to train me so that is how my love for body building came about. I was in a good place and then one day a female pt from the gym (also bodybuilder) came up to me and started saying I only come to the gym to flaunt myself around I have no business here etc. I couldn't fight back I was totally shocked and hurt by what she said. So I never went back. Now that I'm older and wiser and if that happened again I definitely give her a kick up the A hole and tell her to feck off.
But this yr I'm back and I have goals and I want to achieve them and from listening to u yesterday I have become really inspired again. I have a 3 yr old boy and a great husband who are my best supporters and yesterday u made me realize my goals aren't unachievable or crazy.
