It has been almost a year since I started my body overhaul and to say I am happy would be an understatement. It is so crazy how much our society notices those who are thinner rather than our plus-size models.

To say that I was unhappy being heavier would have been a big fat lie. I am happy in whatever body I choose to have, though now I must say the benefits are truly coming to the surface.

Losing a shitload of weight has helped me with work, I don’t get exhausted doing a number any more, outfits seem to be smaller and sexier, and a stranger will cross a room to tell me I’m fabulous.

So is it right that now I should be pushing for more people to get on fitness kicks. I wish it wasn’t true but it seems the majority of us judge a person from the outside first. To be honest I know I have. It’s horrible but true -“ at some stage we have all done it.

So what I am trying to do is break down the stereotypes and give people the option. One thing I found with my overhaul was that I had no will power at all.

If it was a choice of sitting watching a Simpsons marathon on Foxtel with a couple of packets of Tim Tams or eating grass and going to the gym, we all know what choice I would have made.

So it wasn’t until I had a team of people behind me helping that I actually make that jump from the groove in my lounge to the treadmill.

Gym memberships are expensive, time is precious, will power is usually at the lowest and old habits are hard to change.

So this brings me to my newest challenge, for all those out there that need help. I will be starting my very own weight loss show at Stonewall Hotel on Monday nights very soon called Battle of the Bulge.

We are looking for contestants now. You will receive gym memberships, trainers, and medical support. Also you have a chance to win scooters, holidays, cash, iPods and shitloads of other prizes.

To use one of my grandmother’s favourite sayings, I’m not going to piss on your leg and tell you its raining, it’s going to be lots of hard work but I promise to be right there beside every single person.

The arse groove in all our lounges has been our friend for too long; if we start now we can all be in bikinis for summer. We may even make it to the beach this year instead of staying at home because we didn’t want to take our shirts off.

I’m so sick of the same Speedos, underwear and model contests we seem to be having all the time. Let’s do something with normal people that ends up with fabulous results.

If you are interested, call Glenn at Stonewall on 9360 1963.
