A 32-year old Cape Town man lost a staggering 100 kilograms in a journey to improve his overall health, proving that anything is possible if you set your mind to it.
Francois Steyn shared his transformation on Sleekgeek Health Revolution, a community dedicated to empowering people to transform themselves and lead a healthy lifestyle.
Steyn’s weight has gone from 230kg to 129.10kg.
“Boooya! At last, 100kg weight loss in total. Pretty embarrassed sharing this but hopefully it can inspire those who have the same struggles as I had and still have. It’s been one heck of a journey so far, still far from goal but every single day I work towards being a better person than I was yesterday. ”
Steyn has been a member of the Sleekgeek Health Revolution community for nearly seven years.
In an interview with Sleekgeek Health Revolution he said that he previously lived an unhealthy lifestyle which led him to becoming morbidly obese.
“When I was 230kg I still never thought that I was “that” big. The old me wasn’t motivated, didn’t exercise at all, binge ate every few days and had a really bad relationship with food,” he said.
Steyn decided to change his lifestyle, adopting healthier eating and a regular exercise regime and underwent a lifesaving gastric bypass surgery.
“Everything about life is different and better, including the way I look at life, and the way people look at me. Let’s be honest, being 230kg in today’s society means you get judged in every store, in every restaurant – doesn’t matter where you go,” he said.
Steyn’s next goal is to complete an Ironman AFRICAN Championship.
