Read it and please come back here…
So that was 4 years ago. I cannot believe how time flies. I now weigh 93kg. Yup, you hear right. I had lost weight from 110kg to 78kg in two years. By 2014 I was skinny as hell (at least to those who knew me), but I’ve put the weights back on. What happened? Did I stop exercising? Did I stop dieting? No, no… not really?
Here’s what I am no longer doing
- Jogging 1 hour + every day
- Cycling for 5 hours plus once a month
Here’s what I am doing
- Jogging at least 30 minutes every other day (most times it’s daily).
6 weeks ago, I starting going to the Gym. I completed a 30-day routine that got me building muscle, but I wasn’t losing weight.
6 weeks ago, I completely cut out all protein from my diet and starting skipping dinner, but I wasn’t losing weight.
It is frustrating! And my belly is big. Here I am starving myself to death and I’m not losing weight. Others eat to their hearts content but keep looking skinny.
What is the problem? Follow me as I find out and meanwhile, please share your story.
