Laynie Kelly - Living her life by design and on purpose

I met the man I would marry initially when I was 16, and he was 26 at Lakeside Raceway.  Then I re-met him 10 years later at pitlane Mt Panaroma circuit.  Three dates in two weeks before he proposed marriage.  We were together for a total of 14 years before he died in my arms in 2001 suffering Light Chain Disease, a rare bone marrow illness.

With his departure I had to confront many issues about myself to rebuild my life alone.   The first was my obesity which I overcame by resetting my attitude and self-image.  I had to overcome issues with food, and beat the daily alcohol abuse.  The first step I took was to acknowledge and recognise where I was at.  90kgs and 44% bodyfat.  What?  Nearly half of me was fat.  After training for 2 years with a personal trainer I lost 30kgs to win the 2006 Sydney Women's Overall Bodybuilding title.
