It’s amazing what a little effort & determination can do 🙌 Today I’m officially 20kgs less than my highest weight, I don’t think I’ve been this tiny since I was about 15, and I’ve sure as hell never had abs like this!! Pretty bloody stoked at how my comp prep is tracking, can’t wait to see what my amazing coach gets out of me in another 10 weeks when I hit the stage!

Peanut allergy researchers say they may have found key to a cure

Australian researchers have found a possible key to a cure for people with potentially fatal peanut allergies.

A Melbourne-based study has already transformed the lives of many of the children who took part in the clinical trial.

Researchers from the Murdoch Childrens Research Institute gave about 30 allergic children a daily dose of peanut protein together with a probiotic in an increasing amount over an 18-month period.

The probiotic used in the study was Lactobacillus rhamnosus and the dose was equivalent to eating about 20kg of yoghurt each day. At the end of the trial 80% of the children could eat peanuts without any reaction.

“Many of the children and families believe it has changed their lives, they’re very happy, they feel relieved,” said the lead researcher, Mimi Tang. “These findings provide the first vital step towards developing a cure for peanut allergy and possibly other food allergies.”


“That scene was very taxing on my body.”

“It was really cold. At first I thought, ‘yeah, it’s cold,’ but as the ice kept melting, they kept adding more and more, to the point my body started to feel numb. I heard about 20kg of ice was used, and I was in the tub for about 2 hours.”

“Everyone thought it was fake, but it was real ice. When filming the bathtub scene, I was shaking weirdly so it seemed like it was fake.”

“(Girl) Before I lost 20kg on my diet, if I asked kids at school to please move they would just swear at me and pass by. After I lost weight the kids I passed at school would kindly move out of the way.”
“What do you think was their reason for discriminating against you?”
“(Girl) I think they were just bad kids. No matter where you go there are kids like them. However after I lost 20kg and went back to school, the kids were nicer. In the past, if they would say something like, ‘you’re here?’ they’re now like, ‘you’re here?! Dayeong?? come here come here’.”
“(Boy) People who judge others based on looks are like those that think if a rice cake looks good it must also taste good. However, some people eat fermented stingray even though the smell is so strong because they know it tastes good. There are those that only pay attention to the surface, but others recognize what’s truly attractive. That’s the difference I think.”

“(여자) 제가 다이어트로 20kg을 빼기 전엔 애들이 길 좀 비켜달라고 해도 어떤 애들은 막 욕하면서 지나갔는데 살 빼고 나서는 애들이 잘 비켜주더라구요.” 
“차별하는 이유가 뭘 것 같아요?” 
“(여자) 그냥 나쁜 애들이 있는 것 같아요. 어디를 가도 그런 애들은 있더라구요. 근데 20kg를 빼고 다시 갔더니 애들이 다 상냥해졌더라구요. 예전엔 ‘왔어?’ 이랬다면 나중에는 ‘왔어?! 다영아?? 이리와 이리와’ 이렇게요.”
“(남자) 외모 지상주의는 마치 보기 좋은 떡이 맛도 좋다는 생각과 같은 건데, 어떤 사람들은 홍어가 냄새가 심하더라도 그 진짜 맛을 알고 먹잖아요. 누군가는 겉을 많이 보지만 어떤 사람들은 다른 진짜 매력을 알아봐요. 그 차이인 것 같아요.”

Hey Taylor,

 My name is Aisla (pronounced like I-La) and I am from Perth, Western Australia. Around 4 months ago I decide that I needed to make a big change. I’ve been over weight for most of my life and 4 months ago I realised that this could be the tour that I finally get to meet the girl that I’ve loved and adored for more than 8 years and I would be unhappy with myself if this were to happen when I was at that size. 

With that being said, I started eating healthier and running every morning; now 4 months on, I feel so much healthier and happier, I’ve lost over 20kgs (45lbs) and I have gone down 3 dress sizes. One thing that has kept me on track and focused this whole time is you. Taylor, you’re such a motivating human being and I fall in love with you more and more everyday!

I really hope that this will be the tour that I finally get to not only met you but also thank you for being my inspiration to change so I can live a better life.

This tour I’m lucky enough to be traveling over 3,500km (2,175miles) to Adelaide and Melbourne where I’ll be attending 5 shows! I have been saving up for this trip for more than a year now and I’m so excited that I get to travel with such an amazing group of people that I have met because of you.  

Adelaide night 1- General Admission (West)

Adelaide night 2- General Admission (East)

Melbourne Night 1- Floor Level, Block C4, Row J, Seat 13

Melbourne Night 2- Level 1, Aisle 37, Row J, Seat 289

I’m so excited and cannot wait to see you soon!!!

Love Aisla xox

Hi I’m Jarra. I’m 21 and from Australia

Height: 166cm (5'5")

Before weight: 80kg (176lbs)
After weight: 60kg (131lbs)

Total loss of 20kg (45lbs)

I have been overweight my whole life, this is the first time I have ever started to feel comfortable in my own skin.
It took 6 months of vegetarian/vegan diet and regular exercise to transform me.

Also if you could spare a second to vote for me here so I can finish the transformation I have worked so very, very hard on that would mean the world to me!
Thank you! x
