BATTLING anorexia, this woman was given a dire prognosis.
THIS teacher’s weight plummeted to 24.5kg after the death of her grandmother lead her on a dark path of over exercising for up to 12 hours a day and breaking 23 bones in two years. But she has since beaten her demons to become a bodybuilding champion.
In 2004 when high school teacher Chelsea Kamody, 30, was at high school herself, her grandmother, who was her best friend, passed away from cancer, leaving Chelsea distraught and feeling out of control. Not knowing how to handle her emotions following the devastating news, she decided that exercising intensely was the only way she could cope. Up until 2012 she would refrain from eating anything except celery and bananas, and would exercise so vigorously her weight dropped to just 24.5kg. Her bones became so fragile broke 23 in just two years; her hair fell out and she was constantly cold. In 2012 she then binge-ate 8 000 calories worth of food in a state of panic before feeling guilty, leading her to exercise for 10 to 12 hours a day to ‘reverse the damage’. It wasn’t until
November 2014, when her doctor warned her that she could die within a few weeks if she carried on, that she made the brave decision to recover.
In January 2015 she noticed the difference in her weight and is now a healthy 64kg and.
She first stepped on stage for a bodybuilding contest in March 2015 and hasn’t looked back.
