And it’s a start. This time I’ve decided to take pictures so I can see the progress other than on the scale.
I know I’ve said that a dozen times, and tried to lose weight another dozen, but looking back on older posts, I realize that I slowly but steadily gain weight every year. I don’t want to hit 30 and be one of these fatties that you see at Walt-Mart.
In 2011 I was around 160lbs, then in 212 I dropped to 155lbs. I started a stressful job and that year gained a lot, and jumped to 165lbs. In 2013, I reached an all-time high of 178lbs and that’s when I decided to eat better and exercise. I was able to drop to 163lbs.
In 2014, I got a gym membership and a personal trainer. I started at 173lbs and gave up after 6 weeks because didn’t see a change! I then did my own in-house diet, which let me to drop a few more pounds and stabilize at 167 pounds. Then another stressful event hit me and i started binging and eating all i could find in the house. I reached 180lbs. That’s the most I’ve ever weighted in my whole life. The only good thing is that my problem area (my belly) is still the same size as when I was weighting 10 lbs less.
So I’ve decided to reduce my calorie intake to 1400/day and exercise 3 times week + cardio 2-3 times/week.
I now know that these things that time and I will try to be more patient and let things work out. I would like to go back to around 167 lbs by Christmas (which is my July 2014 weight), and then continue shedding up until I am happy with my looks.

I’ve decided to start a bit of juicing, and replace 1 to 2 meals a day with juices. I also ordered the T25 set from Amazon, it’s supposed to be delivered tomorrow so fingers crossed that I will be able to start on that too. more details to come…
Ever since I cam back from vacation, I let myself go a little bit and gained some weight…i went from 167lbs on June 25th to about 173lbs today. I ate out a lot due to July being a birthday month, and also because it’s way too hot to cook.
I’ve decided it’s time to change for real because this might easily get out-of-hand.
I did not gain any inch on my belly, which is really surprising. I was at 38″ (94-95cm) and I’m still at around that . Last year when I was weighting this same weight of 173lbs my waist was 41″/101cm.
