So a few days ago I took this shot, first of all to get used to seeing myself with no shirt on, and secondly to track my progress. It was a horrifying wake up call that shocked me that I had let things get this bad, and left them for so long with no motivation to see the transformation through.
This is my second week of changing my eating habits and to be honest it is hell. An Up and Go for breakfast, with an apple, banana and mandarin/orange in the middle of the day. This is followed by a salad for lunch, a light dinner. Also incorporated into this is no processed food, no fast food or junk. I have spent the last 8 years never thinking twice about what I eat, going on binge after binge with no let up for my metabolism.
Previously I have thought about losing weight but have always given up when it got too hard, or I got too hungry. This time I am buying myself a movie or a game every week that I don’t binge out and keep on track with my exercise plan and is a much better reward than food.
I feel like my body is adjusting to the food change and now this week I start boot camp 3 times a week and walking the other 3 along the beautiful beaches that surround my town. To be honest I am looking forward to a few hours time out every day with just myself, some great beaches and music. Not only will I be looking after my body, I will also be having a mental time out as well.
I am starting out at 97kgs and look sick and unsightly. Now before you think “wow this guy is shallow, it isn’t all about looks” I have lived by this philosophy my whole life and you know what, as much as you can change about your inside, if you stop caring about what your outside looks like, you can turn out to be well pretty much like me and this is what I am changing.
If you are on an eating plan or diet or whatever please comment and let me know how you are going and where you are up to. Right now I am very proud of myself for doing this and unfortunately for anyone reading this you will see a lot of me shirtless over the next few months. Goodbye gut! It has been WAY too long
