This is it, this time I know it's the real thing

In November 2005 and November 2006, I tried to get healthy. I had only short term results:
  • 2005 maximum 108kg
  • 2005 minimum 101kg
  • 2005 result 7kgs lost
  • 2006 maximum 111kg
  • 2006 minimum 104kg
  • 2006 result 7kgs lost
But on both occasions I didn't stick at it. The problem? I tried too much of a quick fix solution. If you stop eating you will lose weight. So I stopped eating. Sort of. I cut out as many Kilojoules (or Calories) as possible and went on special health shakes. However, I didn't really make any lifestyle changes.

In a health magazine I picked up somewhere, it said that it normally takes a few attempts for a health kick to kick in. I think it's kicked in! Two failed attempts... but this time I know it's the real thing.

The results:
  • October 16 2007 = 114kg
  • December 13 2007 = 104kg
  • 2007 result so far = 10kgs lost
The difference? Regular exercise. I've been going to the gym 4 or 5 times per week. I have been cutting out Kilojoules, but once I reach my weight loss goals I'll gradually increase them.

My next goals:
  • 100kgs by Christmas (if not New Years)
  • 95kgs by the start of college (feb 2008)
  • Evaluation. Set a lower goal? Or stay at 95kgs?
Why 95kg? That's what I was when I was 18 and fit and healthy.
Why at all? Health is good. I want to serve Jesus for as long as possible.

Has spending 6hours+ a week doing exercise diminished my current work? No not at all. I think I'm more productive and better managing my time.

Get fit fool.

    Dude, I'm with you, I put on about 7 kg this year, most of it was during the last 4 weeks of college (i.e. exams). College makes you fat if you are not careful, so much yummy food. I've been doing gym for the last 2 weeks. done 3 sessions, would have done 4 but my mate couldn't make it and he is access to the gym. I was 96 kg and my goal is 85, but that depends on how much muscle i build too. might end up at 90 cause of muscle bulk.
    Anyway dude, keep charging, im with you about being fit means serving Jesus better and longer. top

    exams are not good for a number of reasons.

    they aren't a good tool for enhancing long term learning.
    they force you to eat more
    they force you to stress more

    exams suck.

    anyway - i'll be doing a few kms of walking every day for college - so that will be good - and still try to go to the gym 2-3 times a week.

    i've also thought through strategies for not eating too much lunch.

    go well with your summer training!! top
