Logan Chapman knows what it's like to fight tooth and nail with what you want. After all, he lost more than 100 pounds in his quest for health. But as a guy who hates the diet and the gym and has a severe case of FOMO – Chapman could be one of the most reliable weight loss experiences ever.
"I feel like my life is likely to be very similar to many other people who are struggling with weight gain," said 30-year-old Chapman from Ontario, Canada over Men's Health . "I was a big fan of very unhealthy foods and not a big fan of movement .I led a very exercise-intensive lifestyle, I stayed up to the night with video games and often drank canned and pop cans at two in the morning."
There was none single "ah-ha" moment in which he decided to lose weight, but Chapman remembered that one day he hopped on a balance and saw the number tends to 300 pounds.
" With 296 it was certainly a bit eye-opener, "he said." Being a 6 & 3 man as irrational as this is, I had the feeling that two hundred pounds and a pound was fine. Three hundred against, that was a completely different number that I could not justify in my head.
At the same time, Chapman saw a dear friend begin his own health journey. His buddy started to eat better and apparently did not work his way out, losing 50 pounds.
"I thought," Wow, weight loss is not an impossible task, it just needs dedication, "he said.
Chapman's first step was cutting out all those" canned "cans" of soda that he had drunk almost immediately led to a weight loss of 10 pounds. The second step was not to eat huge meals in the middle of the night, which in his opinion was "actually tougher than it sounds" (19659002)] But his big challenge came when he decided to go to the gym to speed up his weight loss.
"It was an intimidating nightmare scenario for someone like me who prefers to sit still and not be around people," Chapman said. "After forcing myself to go several times, I was beginning to realize that I actually hated it."
