“Everything happens for a reason, so it’s important to trust the timing of your life”

So now you know who I am I guess your all asking the same question, So What’s Changed? Why are you suddenly now going to be successful at loosing weight?

Well as Steve Job said “Everything happens for a reason, so it’s important to trust the timing of your life”, I love that quote.

I think its important before I go on to say I have not been asked me to write this blog, I’m not getting paid by anyone and there is definitely no line of people willing to send me free stuff if I write about them. If that all changes in the future so be it, but at the moment this blog is for me and anyone else who would like to read it.

I see it as a sort of therapy! Weight loss is not just about your fitness and diet plan, it’s also about the emotional journey; and for me the emotions have played a big part in where I am today

Had a bad day – eat crap, few glasses of wine and ditch the gym

Tired – eat easy and quick to cook crap food, ok then I’ll have a glass of wine                        and there no chance I’m going to the gym

Happy – eat my favourite food (I can assure you that’s not a bowl of salad),                          seriously it’s not a happy day without a glass of wine and sorry, no gym today,                       I’m too busy being happy

And the list goes on and on and on……

Well at this time in my life, I can tell you I am at my all time heaviest, most unfit and most unhappy. Usually I can get myself pulled onto some sort of healthy regime – albeit for a short time. But honestly this time I couldn’t do it, nothing was working – I couldn’t even last an afternoon. Then fate or whatever you want to call it stepped in and helped me out.

Me this morning, not a bad picture as it goes!! As you can see lots of weight to come off.

So here’s what happened, I still don’t believe it.

A few weeks ago I was flicking through a magazine at work – Health and Fitness Magazine and there was a competition to win 6 months personal training and nutrition advice from a company called We:Bo. I will be honest, I didn’t think I had a cats chance in hell of winning but the entry process was simple – just send them an email and tell them why you should win. I had a few minutes and thought why not.

And you guessed it I won.

As emails go this is a pretty good one!!

As We:Bo have given me this amazing opportunity I think its only fair that I tell you what I know about them so far. And I’m certain you’ll be hearing a lot more about them in the next 6 months. But you should stop by there site, download the app and give them a go.

We’re a community of sports scientists, nutritionists, health coaches, personal trainers, current and ex international athletes and sports people, mums, dads, brothers, sisters…  all with 2 things in common; a desire to feel and perform better and very little time to fit it all in!!

We want everyone to be able to access high quality training and nutrition advice and have a common belief that having a personal health coach and a team of experts on hand can make all the difference in feeling and performing better.

We’re a community of sports scientists, nutritionists, health coaches, personal trainers, current and ex international athletes and sports people, mums, dads, brothers, sisters…  all with 2 things in common; a desire to feel and perform better and very little time to fit it all in!!

We want everyone to be able to access high quality training and nutrition advice and have a common belief that having a personal health coach and a team of experts on hand can make all the difference in feeling and performing better.

we:bo was set up by Sanjeev Virdi with a simple yet ambitious goal; to improve people’s health.

Sanjeev has a passion for sport and physical and mental well-being. He grew up in a sports-mad family, played hockey at international level, coached football to kids, has a degree in Psychology & Sports Science, and has over 20 years experience working in high performing organisations. From this he’s gained a great understanding of the physical and mental benefits of physical exercise and eating well.

He also understands first-hand the consequences of not, having lost close family members to health-related issues, with Type 2 diabetes and cardiovascular diseases being the main preventable protagonists.

Married to an inspirational wife and father to two super-active boys, Sanjeev loves nothing more than spending time with his family living new and exciting experiences and is motivated by helping others improve their health and well-being so they can focus less on worrying, and more on the things that matter.

That’s why he set up we:bo. So whilst the ambition may seem grand, the motivation is real. Along the way, like-minded friends have joined the journey to help get we:bo to where it is today. And this is just the beginning…

So there it is in a nut shell – I’m hoping We:Bo is my reason ‘why‘ this time. I know I’m the one who needs to put in the hard work.

This time I think its different – I am accountable to We:Bo who gave me this amazing opportunity, my Lead Personal Health Coach Paul Parry who I am certain has thousands of other things he could be doing, he is giving up his time to help me; and I’m responsible to the people reading this blog. Finally I am accountable to myself, I owe myself this and I deserve it. I truly believe I’m in a better place mentally than I’ve ever been before, so lets do this – lets make it work this time.
