Why Chubby For Life?

I’ve been fat since my thyroid problem around thirty and have tried everything.  I’ve gone on Adkins, I’ve tried the cabbage soup diet, etc.  About a decade ago I tried Body For Life

Body for Life uses weight lifting and nutrition to get in shape.

On the front and back covers of the book are photos of people who have done radical transformations in 12 weeks.  It was what I needed.

I joined a gym, printed out the workout sheets and started.

My middle-aged body rebelled but I continued.  By the tenth day I was beat on my feet from overdoing it.  In the middle of the workout I was so miserable I said to the guy next to me, “If this is how I feel having a body for life I’d rather be chubby for life!”  That’s how the phrase was born.

I’m fifty-six now.  I’m a reasonably intelligent person.  I’m tackling this in a reasoned manner.  It’s going to happen.

Eventually this site will be called. Chubby For Life Not.
