13th March 2021 I finished work at the paint shop. 30th July 1990 I started my first full time job. I worked for Haymes Paint in their Ballarat shop. That would be 31 years ago this year. Haymes opened a new shop in Frankston and I got to move out of home at the age […]Read More Goodbye Paint Shop.
Well here is My 5 Year Story and my 7 week update. (for anyone who has time for a read) May 2016: I hit the heaviest (99kg/218 pounds) and widest (waist 113cm/44.5 inches) I have ever been in my life. Partially, deliberately. I had written a short film called Not Yet about a guy who […]Read More My 5 Year Story
Personally I don’t believe in the whole New Year Resolution thing. I think it is a powerful way of setting yourself up for disappointment. Changing the calendar on the wall doesn’t really change anything else. So many memes at the moment about 2021 not being better than 2020, well der! If you actually want things […]Read More Not A New Year Resolution, Just New(ish).

Three very important subjects in that heading there. Three different things I have been neglecting for too long. I don’t do New Year’s Resolutions but I am doing a 1st March Start To New. So what am I talking about? I’m not really sure either but here goes. 1. Head. Mine hasn’t been in a […]Read More Head, Body, Heart.

Some a couple of lines, some a couple of paragraphs. But the motivation left the building. This one is a bit about the last […]Read More Not All Anniversaries Are Too Be Celebrated But Some Still Need A Drink.
The Overseas Chapter. So many people bag out social media as the most evil of evils but I personally believe that it has destroyed distance and borders on so many levels. Sadly that has helped the bigots and ignorant also share their crap and hate over a much larger area too but it has also […]Read More The Amazingly Generous People Part Four.
Okay, this blog is me having a whinge about a few things. So trigger warnings. If you don’t want to hear about pain, constant pain, painkillers, addiction, depression, debt and a few other cheery subjects then change the channel now. Over 28 years ago I started working in the paint industry. About 20 years ago […]Read More Having A Sook!
The health journey all the way from 15th May, 2016. Sorry about any repeated detail but I’ll try to summarise a bit on the old stuff and get to some points. Back then I was at the heaviest and widest I have ever been before in my life. 96.4kg with a 113cm waist. I started […]Read More My Getting Into Shape Update.
Weight and energy have been an issue for me for quite a while.On 15th May, 2016, I filmed Day 1 of a film called NOT YET where I play the character Max Harper who gets news that he is unwell. On 16th May, 2016 I weighed in at 96.4kg with a waist of 113cm. That […]Read More Thinner, More Energy & Not Yet.
