12 years ago I was a size 20 and 98 kg… I was in my mid 20’s and felt like life was passing me by. I wanted to be happy, I wanted to have fun, I wanted to walk into a shop and pick out a cute outfit, and wear shorts in summer! I wanted to “fit in” I was always so unhappy and mean to myself and battled with Bulimia for 7 years. I have Maltese heritage and grew up with very strong European family values. Food was always an event and was always made a big deal of, this is where my passion for cooking came from.
When I was 22 I opened a soup cafe called Zuppa Uno in Darlinghurst Sydney, I did all the cooking (and all the eating) I was really successful and ended up manufacturing for prisons, hospitals, even supplying soup to all of the Sumo Salad franchises. Even tough life appeared good to outsiders inside my 5″2 body I was sad and an unhealthy 98kg, and this is when I decided that it was time to be kind to myself and start looking after my body.
It was hard and it took more than a week. I had to make lots of changes and had to learn how to say no… I realized I was depressed and so I went to see a psychiatrist, who put me on medication for anxiety and depression, which I am still taking today. I had to dig deep both emotionally and physically, but it was the most important thing in my life and I wanted to change.
I joined Shazza’s Boot Camp in Sydney and I was the slowest, fattest and most unfit person in the group, but I got up and went to the three 6.15 am classes every week! I eventually got down to 52 kg’s, I decided to sell my soup business and become a personal trainer and weight loss coach. I helped many of my clients lose weight and turn their life around.
