I have been getting alot of questions from you guys how to loose weight and how do i start and more. These are the most FREQUENTLY asked questions, answered.
When and why do I want to loose weight?
It was 7th May 2012. Little did i know it was the commitment i made for a lifetime. I was having problem climbing up stairs on a daily basis. I sweat and pant everytime i walked together with my colleagues to and fro from lunch. I seem to have trouble lifting myself up when i hopped on Adib's bike. I get very tired easily even when i was shopping. Walking seemed to be the last thing i want to do. And when i saw my photos after a trip to Sibu Island, i realized i grew out of proportion. I literally said "WOAW!" when i saw my pictures. I was not happy. I began to feel scared when i had to purchase a size 20 pants. I was not happy about it too.
So if you can see, i was not happy about my health, my body but i was not uncomfortable either. I still do love myself and thats the reason WHY i started to do something about it.
How do I start and where?
I went to a 1-week trial over at Amore early last year and I fell in love with the place at Jurong point. The classes were amazing! It was fun, interactive and i like the environment and the showers too! haha! HOWEVER, i cannot afford (in all honesty) the fees that befall upon me. SO, i told myself there have got to be another way. Until I watch this video which is the FIRST VIDEO which inspires THE HELL out of me. Watch it:)
I began to buy home trainer videos and dance with it. I always loved to dance, move and shake my body, so i bought exactly what i loved to do. Aerobic and dancing videos to get me going. I get sick of things pretty easily thats where i watched Youtube videos. Youtube is such a great help for me. I watched and switched many many fitness videos to cater to my regime. Its wonderful. You can find fitness training videos, motivational videos and normal people doing VLOGS about their wieghtloss journey. It is such a HUGE society in youtube. And i thought the beauty society was big~
I began to read alot of fitness magazines, websites to educate and motivate myself. I read that all you need is 150 minutes a week to exercise and you will stay fit. That is if you commit to it religiously.
How much did I loose to date?
This is definitely a shocker. Yes i lost a total of 17-18kg after 8 months.That is about minimum of 2 kg per month. I am not going to tell you its going to be easy. Its alot of sweat, determination, self-motivation (you have got to find what works for you), muscle pains and aches and time. You must be mentally prepared and ready to change your lifestyle.
Through the months, I was experiencing weight plateau for a good 4 months which was EXTREMELY frustrating, i sprained my shoulder for a week due to weight lifting (includes my body too), I can't even open my own shirt nor bra, my ankle were swollen (NOTE to beginners, please wear and ankle guard during exercise so that you won't hurt your foot) and more. It was these pains that reminds me not to give up. Yes it is frustrating because I had to go through so much but it was worth it when I saw what it did to my body.
Now, on to the INTERESTING PART!!!
