Hi Everyone this is CoachV Over the last 5 years I have gained about 40lbs I went from a 165lbs to 205lbs. My performance on court wasn't really hampered much outside from an occasional cramping in the legs after a hard 3.5 hour match.
But a Car accident last year prevented me from working out hard or even playing tennis tournaments for about 6 months. In those six months I was having the hardest time breathing and moving. I used one of those machines in the store recently that test the heart rate and body mass index etc etc etc. Well the results weren't great at all. It said that I have Pre-hypertension with a resting heart rate of 80-BPM & I am obese at 35% body Fat.
In the past I used to have a heart rate of 50-BPM Resting, Body fat of like 27-30% and if i ever got my weight up too high I could drop 15lbs in about 2 weeks from just running, jumping rope and push-ups and Sit-ups. But Now I'm Older, have 2 kids & busy coaching tennis. Its hard to be motivated to work out. But I'm not alone.

My Weakness over the years has been my eating habits. I binge eat. I will not eat at all all day play tennis and then Binge. Cravings for bad foods like Candy, Ice Cream, or fast Foods. My biggest weakness is Pizza. Now Pizza is a good food. But when I Eat Pizza i dont stop with just 2 slices. My Students have seen me decimate Pies of pizza. My Second weakness is I cannot say no to free food. Thanks for reading thus far and I look forward in you my friends in joining me
