Hello, my name is Jay, a 44-year-old from Australia. I’m a dedicated parent to two young kids aged 3 and 7. Join me as I open up about my weight loss and weight gain rollercoaster journey, where I’ve faced setbacks, triumphs, and everything in between.

My Weight Loss Journey

Over the past year, I’ve experienced significant changes in my weight. From a starting point of 121 kilograms, I managed to shed an impressive 23 kilograms, bringing my weight down to 98 kilograms. However, life has a way of throwing curveballs, and in recent months, I’ve found myself gaining back 8 kilograms, including some muscle gain. With my current weight at 106 kilograms, I’ve decided it’s time to take proactive steps to reclaim control of my health and well-being.

The Emotional and Physical Challenges

In this video, I’ll be sharing the emotional and physical challenges I’ve encountered along the way. The motivation behind my decision to embark on a 3-day fast is to kickstart my journey back to my goal weight of 92 kilograms. I’ll take you through my preparation process, where I’ll discuss the mental and physical preparations I’ve undertaken to ensure a safe and effective fast.

My Dedication

Throughout this video, you’ll gain insight into the reasons driving my dedication to this journey. I’m not just focused on the numbers on the scale; I’m committed to achieving a sustainable lifestyle that benefits both my physical health and overall happiness.

I’ll delve into the importance of setting realistic goals, practising self-compassion, and maintaining a positive mindset throughout this challenging process.

Join Me on This Journey

As I embark on this 3-day fast, I invite you to join me in witnessing the ups and downs, the triumphs and setbacks, and the raw, unfiltered emotions that come with embarking on a transformative journey towards better health. Your support means the world to me, and I’m incredibly grateful to have you as part of my journey.
