Here’s what happened. My gym was holding a “Food & Fitness” challenge for the month of February and I decided to participate. The challenge was meant to inspire friendly competition between participants to see who could drop the most body fat in February.
I gained a little weight last year. Unfortunately, this weight was on top of the weight I’d already gained the previous year. I was carrying about 25 extra pounds of fat, and people were starting to notice. Not a lot of people, but definitely the ones who count.
