I AM NOT CURRENTLY ENDORSING ANY PRODUCTS, AND I WILL NEVER ENDORSE A WEIGHT LOSS PRODUCT OF ANY KIND. IF YOU SEE ANY OF MY PHOTOS ATTACHED TO ADS FOR WEIGHT LOSS PRODUCTS, YOU CAN SAFELY ASSUME THE PHOTO IS STOLEN, AND PLEASE LET ME KNOW.
Back in 2012 I finally decided to start taking care of myself. I went from being a class II obese sedentary person to being a lean, energetic competitive runner and all-around fitness freak.
Although I do track my weight for the purpose of checking in with myself, being a certain weight is never my goal. Getting down to a healthy body fat percentage has simply been a side effect of good nutrition and consistent training. In turn, the good nutrition and consistent training have been a side effect of doing the necessary psychological work, i.e. dealing with the emotional and mental issues that led me to obesity in the first place. So If you’re looking for my magic success formula, there it is: sort your head out, the rest will follow.
