let's hear people's stories. for me, i was always a 3-4 sport athlete growing up. i played soccer, baseball, basketball until high school when i did football, basketball, baseball/track. after high school i let weed take over and i stopped doing everything. ate a lot, smoked a lot, drank a lot. (though eating a lot was a by-product of smoking a lot). last year i got worried cuz my dad had a stroke at 26 due to fluctuating his weight his entire life. i quit weed, then this february i started working out. completely changed my lifestyle and sedentary habits and i've lost 55lbs now - which is only that low because i had an arm injury for 6 months. literally went from a 4xl to a medium. this is my lifestyle forever now, and i changed cuz i was tired of being lazy, panting while walking, sweating a lot and not looking like i should look. also, i want to live a life with all limbs working and be able to play and work with my kids like mine never was able to - which hurts him every fuckin day. my dad is stronger than i am, but i'm takin the steps to never have to go through what he did.
