What you see in the side panel about that 20kg weightloss countdown chart? Well, its something like a personal project that I'm on to lose 20kg in 3 months. Yeah, we know I've done a 33kg weightloss thing before and first 16kg of that initial weight drop was done in the first 2.5 months with the rest done in the remaining part of that year... so with that, we all know that it can be done and I can do it with the guidance and help of the hubster who cooks practically all my meals now. BUT it doesn't make the effort easier.. its still just as freaking difficult this time as it was then... *balks in horror*
This time round however, this initiative comes with a little more of an interesting slant.. this time, I'm not dropping from that massive 100kg that I was before but from an 80kg weight. I did hit 67kg in my first round of weightloss 2008-2009 efforts and over year end festivities, Philippine travel trip 2009 and CNY 2010, I stacked on practically 11-13kg on top of my maintained weight of 67-69kg.
I have no one to blame for the weight gain except myself and then again, it became more of a personal disappointment that I could not feel the motivation to kick my own butt back into a stricter regime. It was a steady stream of constant carb loading and not watching my intake. My exercise levels no one can doubt that I have sufficient activity levels on a daily basis with even more instructing this year than the last. My week is practically full every single day. Some days, I instruct 2 regular classes too... *shrugs*
I couldn't find that motivation and lay complacent. I tried launching a 100 day weightloss challenge. Even though it was openly publicised, some said they're interested but I've not heard any more than that?! Even with that I found myself procrastinating when to start...
Sadly enough the only other person who was motivated enough to take on that challenge was my girlfriend, Jo and I know she could achieve her aim of her objective of a 9kg loss on her end. Simply because her mindset was right and she had a plan plus she had achieved it before with her low calorie watching. I've no doubt at this time that she would be almost there by now.... I cannot do a low calorie thing - but she can do it spectacularly. To each their own. :)
Then something more interesting made its way into my life... an opportunity to be part of something that would make its mark and change my life and I took it on excitedly with open arms. What is it? An endorsement. Which brand? Well, you'll know in the weeks to come...
However, in the meantime faced with this interesting turn of events. It compellingly gave me a strong reason to run that final leg of my weightloss objectives that I set out when I was 100kg.
To reach 60kg and maintain that weight. So from that current weight of 80kg. Weighed in on the 27th of July 2010, I've embarked on a strict low carb intake regime, monitoring my activity levels and trying to adjust with the "new" activity levels.
Every time a new weight comes in, I will chart it into the sidebar. I started on the 27th of July 2010 and aim to reach the 20kg loss before or by the 27th of October 2010. If you're reading me regularly, I would appreciate it greatly to hear from you to show me your support or if you're watching and walking this "journey" with me with your own weightloss objectives.. moral support always helps especially when I'm hitting those days that low energy hits with low motivation to keep up the regime... I can do it... I will do it.. so stay here and watch it happen or even better.. do it too...
I have a video that I will post up next week probably that I took on the start of this weightloss thing and I'll chart a video down every 2-3 weeks and probably post it up here.
As for now, the picture above was taken last Saturday at one of our clients NDP Rehearsal Fireworks display event. It was spectacular btw! When I get the video off CJs phone, I'll upload his copy here to view! And I had a tattoo *airbrushed* done on my shoulder.. I actually like having tattoos done there *you would have seen several over the years that I've put there and posted up on my blog*, haven't gotten the courage to get a real one.. haven't seen a design that I really would like permanently marked there but temporary tattoos work well for me for now.. this picture is currently the wallpaper on CJ's phone..
Okay! Thats it for now... thanks for reading! :) Leave me a comment. :)
