Tess Transformation Journey

My family has a history of diabetes, hypertension and cholesterol problems. During pregnancy, I also had gestational diabetes, and a doctor told me that I would likely develop diabetes before the age of 50.


But even though I had never been super healthy, I didn't feel the need to change. I looked fine — though I now know I had long been "skinny fat”.


It wasn't until a few years ago when I started to become overweight, hitting 52kg— the heaviest I had ever been. I felt big and bloated, and seemed to constantly feel ill. I began to worry about my health in the long run — and knew that it was time to make changes.


At first, I thought that exercising would make me healthy, but I realised that instead of just exercising, I needed a lifestyle overhaul.


So I committed to making a change. It felt like one of those transformations you see on TV. I began monitoring my calorie intake and protein consumption; going to bed and waking up early; doing strength training; and taking supplements. I also set myself a step goal to hit every single day.


I didn't think too much about it. All the other methods I’d tried had failed, so I just listened to what my coach told me and decided to keep going.


Eventually, I found that I had slowly become a new person — without even realising it. People around me also noticed the changes I was making. Friends were complimenting my new shape, and I was even told I was a role model.


In the past, I was often told how slim I was. But being fit is a whole different thing. Once I began to see results and hear compliments, all the while improving my physical performance, I became more and more confident in the path I am taking.


I now weigh 46kg. I can do a 55kg back squat; a 80kg sumo deadlift; as well as chin-ups and push-ups. Looking at my own before-and-after photos felt surreal.


My lifestyle now looks completely different to how it was just a year ago. I feel healthier both physically and mentally. Body checks indicate I’m healthy.


While changing my physical shape was an important factor, what’s been the biggest transformation has been of my mindset and lifestyle.


Life is unpredictable, and there are so many things out of our control — like  genetic factors, for example. But I now believe that as long as I put in the work, I can take control of my own health. And of course, at the end of it all, health is truly everything...Tess


家族有遺傳糖尿病,高血壓和胆固醇問題,懷孕時又有妊娠糖尿,專科醫生說我應該未夠50歲會有糖尿病。

雖然身體一向不太好,但我覺得還可以,因為一直處於Skinny fat狀態。

直至數年前,體重去到人生癲峰52kg,又肥又腫又易病,開始担心自己健康,覺得需要改變。

開始時諗住做下運動,但原來我更需要的是一個健康的生活模式,於是除了要計數食野,攝取更多蛋白質,早睡早起,重力訓練,食補充劑,重要每日行得足夠。。。過程就像電視節目的大變身一樣。

減的過程沒有想太多,聽教練指示一路走,走走下發現自己不知不覺變成了另一個人。開始有人話我Fit,有人會以你為仿效對象。以前很多人話我瘦,但同Fit真係兩碼子的事,這些又成為我繼續努力堅持的動力。

我現在體重46kg,做到深𥖁55kg,相樸硬拉80kg,引體上升和掌上壓都不是問題。看到自己前後照,也覺得感動。

一年後的今日,我的生活習慣改變了,我的身心也變得健康,最重要是我一切指數正常。

身型改變重要,心態和生活習慣改變才是這次身型改造的最大得著。

人生無常,很多事我們也未能掌控,例如我的遺傳因子,但現在的我相信只要我努力,我至少可以掌控我的健康。

健康就是一切。
