BEING ABLE TO
IS THE BEST
THE FAT PT
I am Derek, 34 and a personal trainer based in glasgow, if you haven’t seen my journey on Facebook or instagram, let me tell you a little bit about it, before you go any further!
I have struggled with my weight my whole life, I was burnt in a house fire when I was 2 years old, and from 2 to I was 19 I spent a lot of my childhood in the hospital getting operations, I was not able to have a normal child hood, and my energy levels weren’t quite like other children’s, this is the main cause of my obesity at an early age. I was in cast and plaster half the year and then when I would grow again it would be time for another operation, so quickly after I would get about, it would be time to do it! A never ending cycle! So I would get snacks when maybe others wouldn’t as I had suffered a lot!
So fast forward to I was 19, I was grotesquely over weight, and it had basically always been like that! I struggled a lot, in school, and out with girls and friends, I was never genuinely happy, very shy, and didn’t back myself whatsoever!
Infact I hated what I had let myself become, this will bring me onto relationships, with family and friends, and also partners! I was never genuinely happy, so none of them would ever work! This isn’t a book, but it’s important you understand a bit about me, and how I feel I can help you!
