Melissa Mouawad, a young woman from Sydney, had been a foodie since childhood. When she was 18, she weighed 135 kg (297.6 lbs) and had to wear maternity clothes as she couldn’t fit into anything else.
After @becchambersfit amazing post on confidence in the gym - I thought Id share my first experience in a commercial gym weighig 135kgs. I remember signing up to @fernwoodfitness, all female gym.. I was wearing maternity, plus sized clothes I'd found at Kmart. I started out in the group classes, at the back, I was terribly unfit, morbidly obese, lacking any sort of confidence. BUT I was persistent. I hid at the back of the class, working away, building up my fitness and strength. Slowly but surely I gained confidence and I egded my way closer to the front of the class. It wasn't easy, ever. But it got easier, I got fitter. Until I reached a point where the classes weren't even challenging anymore, and my confidence superseded Fernwood. This is just a reminder that we all started somewhere - choose a gym that makes you feel welcome, and comfortable. With like minded people and trust me - it will get easier 🏋️♀️
