"The secret of change is to focus all your energy not on fighting the old, but building the new." - Socrates
Why do we Tri? For the abs of course 😂. The picture on the left was me at 200lbs with BMI at 26%. I started having back and knee problems from my own weight crushing me. I was determined to get fit again. It wasn't easy and I fell down a few times but always made sure to get back up. I didn't restrict myself from junk food either but was aware of what I was putting into my body. I also kept the picture on my phone to keep me focus.
Now 50 lbs lighter with BMI around 13% my wife and I like the new me 😂. Hey, after 10 years of marriage I had to find a way to keep her interested.
My message to those trying to get healthy. Expect to fall off the path. Just make a promise to yourself to get back on it. Losing weight is about what you put in and how much you're burning so just be aware. Also, this isn't a seasonal thing but a lifestyle change. It will be hard at first but it get easier. Stick to your plan, exercise and EAT right.
If you need to talk about it, DM me. We've all been there. 🙏
