About 8 years ago I did a “Just say NO to 30 post”. I had just turned 30 and I was smoking a pack a day and in the worst shape of my life. Turned that all around and got really fit. 4 years into being healthy and fit I injured my back and could not get it recovered. A year ago I was convinced to do physical therapy couples with Chiropractics & Massage Therapy. I started seeing some progress with the pain. I made it back into the gym and stayed there. Despite the exercise, my diet had been so poor I had hit my heaviest weight of 228 this January. I made a commitment to get in the best shape of my life before I turn 40 this year. I completely changed my diet using MyFitnessPal, and lost 45lbs. Now I’m 183lbs and feel like I’m in my best shape. Here are my before and now pics.
