I've worked out off and on throughout my life. I've always followed several of my favorite bodybuilders and the bodybuilding in general. Plus as a young kid I always wanted that superhero bod. like my favorite comic book and cartoon characters(He-Man, Wolverine, Thundercats, etc).lol The past 3 years have been really difficult for me though, I've had multiple health problems that have kept me from working out and I've put on a considerable amount of weight. I was diagnosed with hashimotos disease, my thyroid was taken out, I now have osteo, rheumatoid, and psoriatic arthritis, right knee has little to no cartilage in it, and I'm on a plethora of medications I take several times a day. I'm slowly working on getting back into shape though. It'll be a rough journey but I know I can do it, I have God on my side along with a lot of support from my wife and family.
Why I Love it
When I work out I feel better about myself. I get motivated about my life. I feel like so many more things are possible when I feel healthy and I'm not ashamed of what I see in the mirror.
