On the 7th January this year I tipped the scales at 99.7kg. I am 180cm tall and 34 years old. When I saw the almost 100kg stature of my ever widening girth something had to be done.
My diet consisted of junk food and plenty of soft drink, hardly exercised and sat in front of the computer most of the day. With the almost 100kg loomed, and not wanting to hit the fat man club action was required.
I immediately cut out all junk food, replacing hot chips with my meal with salad, replacing pepsi with water and cutting down the sugar I had in my cups of tea from 3 to 1.
I also hopped onto http://www.defencejobs.gov.au/lifestyle ... week1.aspx website and followed the fitness regime to the letter. 8 weeks later I had dropped 9.7kg but then I hit the 90kg wall. It appeared no matter what I did I could not break through to sub 90kg weight. Being disheartened I delved back into hot chips and soft drink and relaxed on the excercise. Over the last 6 months my weight has been fluctuating between 90.6kg to 92.6kg depending on any binge sessions I have over the weekends.
I have finally got back on track with my weight, being determined to lose more weight and get fit. A week ago I weighed 91.1 kg and as of this morning I am the lightest I have been in many years tipping the scales at 88.9kg. I go for walks every day ranging from 45 minutes on the treadmill or 60 minutes to the shops instead of driving. I take every opportunity to be active and I rarely use my car anymore.
I am amazed at how much cutting out soft drink effects my weight, with only drinking 2 cans a day. Also reducing my sugar in my cups of tea has seen a dramatic difference. I usually have 4 cups a day so that was 12 tea spoons of sugar plus soft drink per day. Now I have 4 tea spoons and that is it.
My current fitness workout consists of : (2 out of 3 days)
45 min treadmill ( run at 9km'hr as long as I can then walk at 6km/hr until I recover)
100 lunges with a 10kg weight (50 on each leg)
40 sit ups
10 push ups
bit of yoga stretching and cool down.
Guess I would like encouragement to keep me on track and reach my goal. I would like to weigh what I was when I was in my mid 20's which was 77kg.
