Tipping The Scale – My Vice

I made good progress from April until August, with moderate weight-loss while still enjoying what I eat in a moderate way. But when I was going on vacation, that went out the window, and I did have a lot of physical activites, but I left no item on the menu that I would have regret not ordering. I went to town and I ate what I wanted, didn’t think twice about the weight gain because I knew what I was getting myself into.

In three weeks I put on 11 KGs, and I will say it was worth every kilo, I got to have all the different kinds of Burgers I wanted from Downtown Dirty to Gourmet meat. I had every type of Chinese food to the point that the Mama behind counter thought I was her best customer. I tried anything and everything, and I ate popcorn every time I was at the theater, I was like a kid in candy land and I enjoyed every moment of it. I knew that when I get back home I’m going to have to eat extremely healthy and get back on the healthy path and probably regret it later, but at the moment I was a very happy man.

My simple plan now is to eat extremely healthy while I get back to the gym and probably go there more often, biking season is here and I did get a lot of new biking gear so I plan on wearing it, so I need to lose a few kilos to fit into them. I’m happy I did what I did, I just know that now I have to work pretty hard to get back on my path, starting at 109 KGs and heading down.

@ 38%

After going to the gym for the past few weeks I feel that I’m getting into better shape but I didn’t take any real measurements except for my weight. I dropped from 106.7 KG to 103.1 since the last week of March which isn’t too bad progress since I haven’t changed my eating habits too much. Then the other day the trainer at Inspire wanted to take detailed measurements meaning all kinds of ridiculous percentages.

The one number that shocked me is that I am 37.8% fat or 38%, meaning I am more then 1/3 blubber. That is just ridiculous, I was honestly flabbergasted, shocked, I didn’t think of my self as fat, more like big boned! lol! Still I was a bit shocked, I knew that I was working out and trying to be healthier, gain strength, but never thought of myself as that fat. I’m probably going to step it up at the gym and try to reduce the amount of food I eat, the key word being here is try.
