Story

Thanks for taking the time to visit my JustGiving page.

I've always been overweight. A combination of loving food, depression and a poor lifestyle meant I always carried the pounds and struggled to shed them.

When I was 16, I managed to get down to a size 12, but with years of depression and bullying about my weight behind me, I physically didn't see it. Nothing had changed in my eyes, and I packed the weight back on.

I'm 25 now, and nearly 16 stone. With my disabilities, this is dangerous, and I'm finally ready to see myself for who I truly am. This time, I lose the weight, and see it, because I'm ready to love myself.

I need to lose a minimum of 6 stone. For every pound I lose, I will be donating £1 to SpecialEffect to help keep disabled gamers in the game. If you would like to 1) support disabled gamers, 2) help motivate me to get healthy, please do feel free to make a donation of your own.

Donating through JustGiving is simple, fast and totally secure. Your details are safe with JustGiving - they'll never sell them on or send unwanted emails. Once you donate, they'll send your money directly to the charity. So it's the most efficient way to donate - saving time and cutting costs for the charity.
