ABOUT ME

THE GAIN

 Growing up, I was a skinny child and didn’t eat much. During my secondary school stage, my love for food, especially rice grew. I could eat rice all day then I had an accident that got me bedridden for 8 weeks. I gained weight and didn’t consider doing anything about it. I’m not blaming the accident; it was my unhealthy love for carbohydrate (rice) that I blame. My lack of discipline and information on how to stop got me to 308lbs (140kg) in 2010.

THE CHANGE

It was my mom’s constant talks and crying that made me want to try. She will cry at night, praying that I change. After one fateful morning cry, I decided to give it a try.

THE LIFESTYLE

I started with an unrealistic meal plan. After a month, I loss 8kg, my pants were loose and I was a dress size down. It was time to move back to my base. Back to base and surrounded with junks and poor food decisions. It was decision time, few minutes’ yummy food or a healthier me? Well since I’m writing this, I made the right choice. But to succeed I needed a reasonable and sustainable strategy. Diet (food) and exercise must be sustainable; I researched, read blogs and tried out new things. I even took up a course in personal health and fitness. After 3 months, I knew exactly how to lose the fat. Eating controlled portioned healthy food and staying active. I bought skipping rope, a bench and sets of dumbbell and leg weight. I exercised, ate right and kept moving. I never looked back.

THE REWARD

Two years and eight months and I’m 75kg lighter. I can run, exercise with so much energy. I’m in the best shape I’ve ever been. Over time I’ve developed a healthier relationship with food. Health and fitness is now a passion and I’ve turned it into a business. Helping people lose weight, educate them on food and also running a healthy bakery.

TIPS

  • Read read read healthy magazines and blogs
  • Read food labels before buying them
  • Work exercise into your routine, stop seeing it as a punishment
  • Don’t start a diet with expiration date
  • Moderation is the key
  • Plan – use Sundays to plan your weekly meals, snack and exercise
  • Always have a fruit (in your bag), just in case
  • Get in some exercise during TV commercials (e.g.: 5 burpees, 15 squats etc.)
  • Cook your meals yourself, that’s the only way to know what’s in it
