Around two years ago I said “enough”, and hit the gym for the first time in years.
I say this is the end of the beginning, because I’m not done yet, not even close, but from here on in there’s no turning back. I’m easily beyond the “well I’ll diet for a bit and lose a little” stage. I’m nearly obsessed with health and fitness now. I very rarely cheat with food, and when I do it’s very little cheating. When I skip a day at the gym, it’s legitimate (too much work that I can’t escape, or I really need another day to recoup since I pushed it too hard the day before).
Fatty no more. Yes, I still have some fat to lose and muscle to gain, but this progress and dedication will stay with me now.
