They say slow and steady wins the race but if the race is to eat as many chips as you can, slow and steady makes you fat! This is me 7 years ago, fit and healthy, 5 times a week gym goer and not really concerned over what I ate because I burned everything off. Yeah I’m posing but I didn’t have anything to hide so why not. This is me now: That thing hanging over my belt is a combination of a few things including this: Don’t get me wrong, I used to eat chips all the time but there’s a few reasons why I put on weight.
- Getting older! That’s no excuse, there’s fit and healthy older people.
- Falling in Love. Getting married and being happy obviously contributed but it’s not the biggest thing.
- Bad Back. This is the biggest reason why I put on weight. My bad stopped me playing squash (badly), caused me to get sciatica, made me sad on days when I couldn’t play football and ultimately reduced my activity levels to zero.
