My name is Dennis Champion and over a period of 15 years I steadily increased my weight, gained many illnesses, aches and pains. At 38 years old in all honesty I had given up, I was ready to die!
Please don’t misunderstand, I wasn’t going to commit suicide by any “Normal” means but bit by bit I was killing myself with food and drink in a slow methodical painful way with never a thought of “this cake or whiskey is hurting me” only occasional thoughts of “I wish I could lose weight!”
Over the years I tried all the diets, guess what? Yep they all worked!The problem was me, the pattern was the same each time. I lost weight, lost willpower, gained weight. It was soul destroying.
I had a solid firm belief that my size and health were pre-determined so just gave up.
It was on a day, completely bored out of my tiny mind, in my default position (laying on sofa, tea, packet of biscuits with a bottle of red wine ready for when I had finished) and I have no idea why. I was tinkering with my phone and came across podcasts for the first time.
That was 15 months ago (November 2013) and this very simple, completely random act not only changed my life but quite seriously SAVED my life!!
My life is now active, fun, full of surprises, pain and medication free.
I am going to try and document this amazing recovery of mind, body and soul for me to reference at a later date to remind me how far I have come and maybe just maybe help someone out on “InterWeb” who can take a bit of the information and help themselves change – Now that would be bloody awesome!!!!
