At the beginning of March I finally made the decision to improve my health and my body. I got sick of looking at myself in a mirror, and in pictures. I was even on TV one time and the very first thing I said was “holy crap, I have a fat neck”.
In high school I couldn’t gain weight to save my life. I was stuck at 150 lbs, until the day I graduated. Then I immediately gained 20 lbs. Over the last few years, I have been as low as 185 and as high as 210.
My grandfather had some health problems that can be passed down, like diabetes. I decided that was something that I didn’t want to deal with. Plus I wouldn’t mind looking like any of the Spartans from 300. I don’t think the wife would mind either.
So it begins…

Today was my first day. For the most part the shakes have been keeping me full. Everytime I see food I want to grab something, healthy and unhealthy. I screwed up my workout (Beginner). Forgot my paperwork and did the lat pull-down, rather than the bent-over row. Doh!!! Feeling good though. Just gotta get through “the suck” and I’ll be good to go.
