The science of loosing weight.
I’m proud of myself for reaching an interim weight loss goal. Late last year I reported about the extra weight I’d gained and the bad eating habits that lead me to gain more than I needed. Now I’m happy to report I’ve lost my first block of 5kgs (11.02 lbs). I’m still trying to get down to somewhere between 75kgs and 80kgs so for me, the challenge isn’t over yet.
My biggest change has been my diet. The combination of eating less fast food and ignoring my chocolate cravings has helped a lot. I’ve learned to say “NO” when I visit my mates and they offer cakes, biscuits as snacks. I’ve stopped drinking coffee and tea and started eating breakfast.
Sleep has been a big factor as well. Trying to break the cycle of working until all hours of the night and into the early morning has helped. Routines work well for me.
Hopefully all will continue to go well and by my next weigh in I’ll have improved fitness and motivation. The more results I see the more I want to achieve.
While I’m not in a position to dispense advice I’ll say this: Loosing weight is easy, the hard part is getting out there and doing something about it.
