Fact: Dee Dee from Fat to Fit

Do you know that Dee Dee used to be morbidly obesed at 90kg (40BMI) and lost 3 family members to heart attacks and stroke. She was hospitalised for gastroenteritis, suffering cuts to her stomach lining due to extreme dieting. She previously suffered from bullimia.

Unhappy with being the target of unkind and cruel jokes on her fatness, Dee Dee decided to change all these negativity into positives when she sought knowledge studying sports science and sports management and applying it in real life. She is now  a positive role model who not only, "walk the talk" and "practices what she preaches", she also creates community health movements with her health and research initiatives, both nationally and internationally.
