just wanted to share my progress so far. Also as a reminder for myself, because i do tend to get unsatisfied with myself.
Early 2018, i weighed a staggering 168,x kg at 194cm height.
Barely able to move, my face full like the michelin dummy, no stamina whatsoever and i didn’t like myself.
The path i’ve been going since then is full of ups and downs.
On and off keto, on and off calorie counting, on and off this and that.
The things that gave me the most profound results:
- Intermittend fasting
- Not eating in between meals (my number one mistake earlier…)
- Denying sweets
Even though my way of eating is on and off this and that, the overall trajectory is what counts to me.
I was IF before (16-8), and since August, 2019 i’m on an OMAD plan - lost 6kg. 1 week ago i started adding KETO to this, once again.
Forgive me when i say it is not the way of eating i want to be doing for the rest of my life, at least right now i think this way.
Why was my milestone <140kg?
Simple: because this is the weight I carried when i got married 7 years ago. I still had my wedding suit in my closet, saying that by the time my son goes to elementary school, i want to fit into that suit again.
Yesterday was the big day. That suit fits with some significant air to breathe.
Happy? No, because I want to ultimately get to <105kg and it is just such a long way to go still. And it is hard.
These days, i’m taking it step by step.
My next milestones
- Get below 135kg in next 2 weeks
- Get below 130kg before my birthday (mid October)
I find it easier to just focus on the next small increment rather than looking at the mirror and thinking “wow, there’s some significant fat there… STILL… and i have to get to that weight, which is still 30+ kilos to go”.
