It is a sad fact that most people gain back most of the weight they lose within a 5-year period. But it’s possible to avoid falling into that trap.
I made a lot of progress on a lot of fronts, from gaming to fitness to finishing out some freelance contracts. Forward momentum feels good, you know?
I did the Stronglifts 5×5 program a few years back, and I loved it. Really loved it. I gained strength megafast, and I truly felt like a superhero doing it.
The idea of starting over after gaining weight is terrifying, but it’s totally possible. You just have to get your mind in the right space.
I’m not scared of ghouls and ghosts. My biggest fear isn’t something popping out of the shadows to eat my brains. It’s the fear of getting fat again.
