Growing up, I was a skinny child and didn’t eat much. During my secondary school stage, my love for food, especially rice grew. I could eat rice all day then I had an accident that got me bedridden for 8 weeks. I gained weight and didn’t consider doing anything about it. I’m not blaming the accident; it was my unhealthy love for carbohydrate (rice) that I blame. My lack of discipline and information on how to stop got me to 308lbs (140kg) in 2010.
It was my mom’s constant talks and crying that made me want to try. She will cry at night, praying that I change. After one fateful morning cry, I decided to give it a try.
