It's been a month since I've been on, and another 5KG (ish).


As of yesterday morning I am 85.4kg! I'm getting closer and closer to my main goal.


One of the best moments in my life happened a couple of days a go (it might sound very harsh). Me and my friend went on a 10km jog... and he couldn't make it to the end... which is amazing because he has always been super fit and i've always looked up to him in that sense and saw him as the bench mark.. now i've surpassed him. it's a very weird feeling but a good one.

What a weird month it has been (weight wise). I got down to 83kg at the end of October and then stupidly went on a 4 day eating binge (it was my birthday....then i ate all the left overs in the next few days/lots of alcohol, etc, etc) and after all that I ended up being 89kg. I almost lost all motivation and was depressed for quite a few days and started punishing myself by not eating all day and things like that... but i kept reminding myself of how far i've come this past year and thought i'd be a fool to give up now.. so I got back on track and have got myself back down to 85kg.


I also decided to try some old clothes on today... my old favourite pair of jeans wont even hold up on my waist now and they used to be tight on me when i used to wear them. they just drop straight to the floor... i think they were something like 128cm (50 inches) around the waist or something and that was a tight fit (button fell off because they was so tight). the jeans I can fit into now are about 82cm i think.. which is 32 inches and that's not a tight fit.. I'll probably be ready for a size 30 soon.


This is basically my weekly routine now.


daily eating..

bowl of muesli in the morning with low fat milk

maybe a pear of banana before lunch

For lunch I usually have a can of john west light tuna with about 4-5 vita wheat biscuits followed by a couple of pieces of fruit.

For dinner I usually just have some kind of pasta in bolognese sauce.. usually gnocci or spaghetti... i like to have sushi handrolls also.

And I'm not as strict with takeaway like I used to be when dieting... I now have it maybe once every 1-2 weeks in the past couple of months whereas from February to September I didn't have it at all. I make up for eating it now with much more excersize, though. I don't go overboard with the takeaway though... i wont touch mcdonalds, kfc, hungry jacks, etc... i like to have subway (6 inch roast beef on wheat with ranch dressing and all salads), nandos, chinese, and kebabs.

My weekly excersize (this is where i've really amped it up from when I first started)

monday:

- football training for an hour and a half.
- a match of competitive basketball

tuesday


- light 3km run in the morning
- another match of competitive basketball

wednesday

- football training
- light 3km run before i go to bed


thursday

- 5km run followed by 10km bikeride

friday -

i usually just relax on the intense excersize...ill just shoot some basketball or something at the courts.

---


All that is on top of the weight training I already do, incidental excersize (walking to the shop instead of driving...cleaning my room, stuff like that) and working.


My goal now is to be in the 70's by the end of the year, thought i will probably get there by mid december

I'm ashamed to be making this post, but I feel it's the right move.

4 years on.

Almost exactly where I was before I started.

I kept it off for 2 years, but fell into bad habits and put it all back on over a 12 month period.

I knew exactly what was happening but I didn't have the willpower to stop it.

So here I am, starting from the beginning again.

I've lost 5 kilograms in the past month and have been eating healthy, exercising, etc.

I think that I have learned from my mistakes and will not allow it to happen again. Hopefully it is easier this time, as I know what to expect in terms of what happens to my body at certain stages and knowing in my head that it's actually possible to drop it all, if I work hard and make smart choices.

125kg right now. Aiming to be under 100kg by the new year, and we'll go from there.

Wish me luck :)

Good on you for at least making the statement and starting again. There is no shame in slipping up, the issue is not doing anything about it.

Love your target to be 100kg by New Year, good luck and look forward to your progress. Keep us in the loop so we can track your journey.

:D

Still on track, losing 2-3 KG a week at the moment. I know that will slow up eventually to about 1kg, but it's good to see the scales going down.

At the moment I'm having an Up & Go on the way to work, Tuna salad or similar for lunch and a random meat w/ vegies for dinner most nights.

Exercise right now is a 5 minute wake-up sprint on the cross-trainer in the morning. 40 minute walk at night after work. 10 minutes on the skipping rope. 10-15 boxing (heavy bag and reflex bag) along with a resistance program that I'm following.

I've already got all of the equipment in my garage, so that makes it so much easier to get the workouts I need.

Although I hate myself for allowing this to happen again, it feels good to be back on the wagon. I know that this time, I'll make a better fist of keeping the weight off once it's lost again.

Good to see you are still on track and taking care of your body.
Its great to feel good about yourself and your achievements, don't worry if you slip up now and then, you wouldn't be human if you didn't.
Wait till summer comes on ......... its amazing to start shedding the kilos and feel better in clothes.
Great work.

120.1 KG this morning. Slowed up a bit in the last few weeks but still sliding down, which is good to see.

I've been going for a 5-10 minute walk at lunch every day then 6km at night, followed by resistance training.
