In 2016, I found the JYM Army, and that began my journey. Like many journeys, mine has had its ups and downs.
I've had success following two JimStoppani.com programs in particular: Super-Man and Super Shredded 8. Super-Man was the first program I followed. The results I got from it were better than I expected. But after completing that program, life happened and excuses were made. I stopped tracking my macros and enjoyed whatever food I wanted to.
Soon, I found myself back at 130 pounds. This may not sound heavy to many people, but for me it is. I'm only 5'0" tall, with a naturally slender build, so that's not a healthy bodyweight for me.
Why did I let it happen? I don’t know. I think I became lazy. The last time I was at 130 pounds was when I quit smoking over 20 years ago.
