I started a challenge to get my health on track. I did this because I’m now 40 years old and have had my ups and downs with weight but over all, generally in poor health for the majority of my life.
Last year I found myself in the best physical condition since I was a teenager. Then (once again), over a 2 month period over Christmas, I gained 25 pounds. Fast and unhealthy.
Carrying this extra weight was causing me many issues - it was time to make a change. A serious change. I’ve already had one minor heart attack, I’m not going live my life a walking time bomb.
I thought I loved food. The reality, I’m addicted to food. Junk Food.
Yes, I’m addicted to food. The only way I’m going to be able to do this is break free from my addiction. Cold Turkey. My friend Michelle said “You cannot even eat one chocolate Dan, it will sabotage you”. Her words stuck in my head.
I’ve been down this road before. Many times - eat healthy, exercise - but in the end, I always fall back to my addiction. This time, I’m ready - I will do this.
The challenge. 6 weeks. 20 pound goal. Eat right and exercise.
