For TJ Barnow, There’s Getting In Shape, Plus a Greater Motivation

Back when we were teens and in high school being thin was not something we really had to work at. With metabolisms that functioned, seemingly in overdrive all of the time, we could pretty much eat what we wanted and it wasn’t usually an issue as far as weight and overall heath were concerned (not counting acne, [...]
