For all the things I can "star student" my way through, though, my lack of physical fitness has been a constant thorn in my side. I've cursed the gods for making me into a musician instead of an athlete, a scholar instead of a baller. I watch people eat whatever they want without gaining a pound while just the thought of eating pizza makes me go up a moob cup size.
A few months ago, I got fed up with the lack of energy and self-consciousness about how my clothes fit. I've tried to lose weight before with limited results, but I would always burn myself out and revert to longstanding unhealthy habits. In order to have any lasting results, it was going to require something extra. I'd have to bring something to my fitness plan that has never been there before.
