Every beginning of the year, we will start seeing ‘New Year Resolutions” popping up everywhere on our socials. But often, we tend to post these resolutions for the sake of it. How many of these resolutions have we actually realized?
Asking myself that question, I know my answer is no.
Hence, instead of a new year resolutions, I have a mission instead which I began back in Dec 2018. Because actions is louder than words.
Starting on a Weight-Loss Mission
I got a wake-up call…
When I look through my recent photos back last month, all I see is round, round everywhere. Round face, fat arms and bulging stomach. I clocked in my heaviest weight ever at 82.2kg on the 4th December. I was horrified. Like how did I managed to let that happen to me?
I must admit that I’ve been slacking a lot on exercises and binging a little more than just occasionally in 2018. I was approximately 75 kg when I began 2018, having lost some weight in 2017 as I was being pretty active by going to rebounding classes.
The weight-gain was not an overnight thing. I know I was gaining weight but I kept thinking as long as it’s below 80 I’m fine. I will start exercising again after my knee fully recovers and the weight will go back down.
I must say that never happened. My knee recovered but I never got back to being active. I was complacent till the 80 kg appeared on my scale. And I knew I need to do something and so I did.
They always say that it’s 80% Diet and 20% exercise. And I decided to start on my diet while slowly increasing my active level. I’ve tried many types of diet in trying to lose weight and this time round, I put my bets on the Keto diet accompanied with Ketones supplement. And I must say I’ve placed my bets right this time.
Exactly one month after I clocked in my heaviest at 82.2kg, I weigh myself on 4th Jan 2019 and I was down 5kg to a 77.2kg.
The thing about a diet is that you lose motivation when the results is minimal. But when you see substantial results, you will not think twice about rejecting the cake your colleague offers you. And 5kg in the first month is enough to keep me up with staying with my diet.
I still have more to lose. But seeing my face getting less round and my body in a better shape spurs me on. My end goal is 60kg and this is my mission of the year.
My current weight as of this post is 75.6kg which means I’m 15.6kg away from my end goal. I’m hoping to hit my goal by June and I think it’s achievable.
With every weight-loss journey, it’s important to have support and I’m glad that I’ve strong support this time round. My brothers to motivate me in exercising. I’ve a new colleague who’s doing Keto as well! And of course encouragement from friends help a lot too!
2019 is going to be great.
