In 2016 I hope as announced on radio to release my book from Obese to the London marathon, my life my way. I have had a roller coaster of a life, I will bare all and give many people to see the real me from a dark existence to the change of lifestyle for the love of my family and my own survival, Many who know me will be shocked and many will know, my wife, my children and mum and family who has kept me going through the many obstacles in life I faced, you just can’t make this up, why! Because its real, raw, and one hell of a life experience and a journey I am living for the better me which many will agree. The book will tell you who is behind my inspiration to change and how I have inspired many so please wait to hear and read about it in 2014 I promise you won’t want to put the book down.[/span][/p]
