Back in 2004 I was featured in Men’s Fitness magazine. But here’s the kicker, instead of showing my true before and after transformation, these guys reversed the sequence and called it a fit to fat feature.
Oddly enough, I think they jinxed me because not much later I did spiral out of control and spent the better part of a decade in that after size! Thankfully I have found my way back again, and though I’m not done yet, I have no intentions of ever going back!
Please take note of the date on a post as it may be an old, outdated viewpoint. I keep those old posts to show my evolution and progress as a human being. We all make mistakes and say dumb stuff. Hiding it doesn't help anyone and real growth matters. Own your flaws so that others may learn from them. Finally, the opinions and views expressed here are solely those of the respective authors.
