I loved doing sports when I was a kid, especially playing soccer and roller hockey at the town sports complex which was a few miles from my family home.
I took it for granted back then that I was in shape and had little to no struggle playing with my friends and excelling in athletics at school.
When I was injured in college, things took a drastic turn. I was off my feet for a few weeks and put on a lot of weight. This had a domino effect because being heavier made me even less likely to exercise, as it made the act of exercising even harder than before. Soon my weight got even worse, and now I’m at least 60 pounds overweight. I guess my BMI qualifies as “obese,” but I just look “fat” if you saw me with your own eyes. Still, having extra weight on your body isn’t something to scorn or shame because of what it looks like, which is sadly what many people do. Instead, it should be seen as an opportunity to make one’s health improve to live longer and feel better in the process. If your health is lacking, you’re not going to feel good physically on a day by day basis. Instead, you’re going to feel tired and depressed just from the lack of exercise and the constant sedentary behavior. That’s why I eventually opted for a gym membership to get this weight off my body. And since gyms are trying to encourage people to join this far after the pandemic, you can often get a membership discount at a great local fitness center. This is what I opted for, as some of the chain gyms don’t offer the same exact amenities that you can find at a local business.
