Holmes and Lee is a site created by two friends about fitness and health.
Robert Holmes – All my life, I’ve been a fat, lazy slob that can’t be bothered with staying healthy. That is, until I had a trip to the hospital about a heart condition that manifested due to my obesity.
I was lazy and my typical daily meals consisted of doughnuts, ice cream, junk foods and pretty much anything that you shouldn’t be putting in your body.
I never exercised and I was content on sitting or lazing on the couch watching, playing games or doing nothing after I get home from work. It was a bad time in my life. I was lonely and I felt like crap and I didn’t do anything about it.
One night, I suddenly had difficulty breathing and luckily, I had a friend with me at that time with me to get me to the hospital as I couldn’t even reach for my phone to dial 911.
It was such an eye opener for me. I was so scared for my life and I lost most of my savings due to hospital bills and medication. Ever since then, I have started focusing on my health and never looked back.
Kristian Lee – I’ve never had trouble keeping in shape. I grew up in Hong Kong and I was lucky that my family never had history of bad health or obesity.
However, that all changed when I moved to the US about 13 years ago, when I was 21. I moved for better job opportunities and I really admired the American culture.
I was missing home, lonely and alone. I really had a hard time connecting with people. I was stressed out and it did a number on my health. I was gaining weight fast and I was starting to feel fatigued, low energy and pretty much tired all the time.
I started turning it around when I turned 30. I just decided that this is no way to live. I started following different kinds of diets and applied for a gym membership. I am now in shape again and more importantly, I am healthy again.
