Before I started going to the gym on a consistent basis, I was particularly lazy, sitting at home, eating a lot, playing lots of video games and watching TV. I felt unhealthy and though I didn’t lack confidence I wasn’t oozing confidence either. I wasn’t genuinely happy with how I looked or felt either, and in result of that I was unable to become the best version of myself.
The reason why I started coming to the gym consistently and made a change to my lifestyle is due to various reasons such as health, appearances, emotions and working towards my career. The major reason being, I didn’t feel healthy.
I had trouble sleeping at nights, waking up constantly, and found my self out of breath after doing minimal activity. On top of not feeling healthy, I was not pleased with how I looked or felt emotionally either. I knew a change had to be made, and the gym and losing weight became my mission.
I knew I couldn’t go on like this health wise or else I’d probably end up with lots of health issues, as I kept getting older. Also as a person who likes to wear specific clothing, at 6 foot 3 inches and 337 pounds it wasn’t exactly easy to find clothes that are in style and fit. Likewise I knew I had to become more fit in order to achieve my next major goal in life, starting my career job. I’m working towards becoming a police officer, and in my former state, the physical test that they require (strength test and beep test) would unquestionably have been an impossible task, but not now. Unhealthy is an understatement when describing myself when I first started 8 months ago.
At 6 foot 3 inches tall and 337 pounds, I was definitely on the wrong path. Its 8 months later now, and I’m weighing in at 206 pounds. I’ve lost a middle school girl off of my body!
My next goal is simple, keep working hard and endlessly to add to what I’ve accomplished thus far, and become the best version of myself possible. Lets Get It.
