MAESTRO Does 'Mayhem' for SCBU

My name is Shane Farrell. I am married with three children. I live a very hectic lifestyle as a Musical Director while also in college doing a B.A. in Music & Theology.
For the last decade I have struggled with my weight. During my teenage years I developed medical problems with my kidneys and it will continue to be a lifelong condition for me. This has resulted in me staying in hospital for long periods, having numerous surgeries/treatment and in general being too unwell to be exercising.
Five years ago, I started this challenge weighing my heaviest at 24 stone 4 pounds….enough was enough and it was time to do something about it. I lost 5 stone and took on challenges along the way whilst raising money for charities.
Lately I have been back to old habits ….excuses, excuses….. and more excuses!!
January 9th 2017, I weigh 19 stone 9 pounds. I am getting back into this challenge again to work my ass off to reach that golden number 14 stone on the scales. It may take me years, but I will see it through.
I am going to plan different challenges along the way and try to raise much-needed funds.
