Reuben says 40kg loss was not easy
REUBEN White is missing something from his life.
Since starting training at Me Fitness at Springfield he’s lost a whopping 40kg. He has won two back-to-back challenges at the gym and is now in the running to win a third, which has never been done before.
Weighing in at nearly 180kg before he started, Mr White said it hadn’t been easy.
“I was nearly 180kg, my biggest weight. The hardest was the start. But it got easier. Everyone’s gotta start somewhere.”
Mr White started training for an hour in the mornings and attending classes at the gym at nights.
“I was going to the gym constantly and stuck to their eating plan,” Mr White said.
While he’s not going as frequently now that he’s started working 12-hour shifts as a truck driver, he’s still eating right.
Instead of eating deep fried food and carb-loaded meals he’s eating clean.
“I feel a lot more energetic and I’m not as tired,” he said.
While Mr White has always had health issues, that’s not what led him to joining the gym.
“I’ve always had gout and my dad had diabetes so I could get that any time, and I have high blood pressure,” he said.
“But that wasn’t my main push. I was sick of being overweight and tired of not being able to do fun stuff.”
The basketball player said he could now run on the court, something he could never do before.
His goal is to lose another 20kg.
GREAT WORK: Reuben White has lost 40kg.
