Glen's Transformation Journal
Rome wasn’t built in a day. The best things in life are worth waiting for. Patience is a virtue. Slow and steady wins the race. There are countless other clichés that tell us that nothing good simply happens, especially overnight. Over the last decade I have been on a constant march towards becoming a middle aged male.
I’ve slowly gotten less physically active and gained weight. I don’t recover as well as I used to and find myself sitting on the couch more than I’m working on projects. I still get things done but it’s more of a sprint than a marathon and I want a break. I eat more than I should because it tastes better now that I don’t smoke. All things many others do on a daily as well.
My weight gained peaked at 240+ lbs at the end of the year, 90 lbs gained over 8 years. My 5’9” height gives me a target weight between 144-176 lbs., putting me almost 70 lbs. over the top. Whether it was the cause of some medical issues or the result, matters little. My cholesterol and triglycerides shot up to dangerous levels and my testosterone tanked. I had a scare with my heart, on a duck hunt last year, that lead to another discovery. I had quickly developed Stage 2 Hypertension.
I’ve tried to change things over the last few years. I started working out but would stop after a week or a month because I didn’t have anybody to workout with. I tried changing my diet but bread and pasta and potatoes taste good and go far when feeding a large family. I wanted change but I have become lazy. Excuses are easy and cheap.
So why am I telling you this? Why is the title transformations? Surely I’m not here to simply whine about being a fat, lazy, unhealthy, almost 40 year old man. You’re right, I’m not. I’m not here for validation either. I’m here to tell you it’s not too late to hold yourself accountable. I’m here to share my transformation going forward. I’m here to tell you my current measurements so that you can rag me if I don’t stay on point. I’m leaving open and exposed to criticism and accepting responsibility for my choices.
Weight: 234 lbs.
