Weight Loss, The New It Thing.

I've always been a big kid. The size of at least two average guys put together. Well thats not true, I'm 6ft 1in and WAS 95KG My max, in my haydays of weight gain, was just under 100KG. With little to zero muscle on my body I was *in my eyes* a blob. So I tried a multitude of fad diets, protein shakes and all that, meal replacements and so on and so forth.

But it brings me to now. I've always had these little spells of, "I'm just cuddly." And I make peace with my body. It last for a few days but eventually I'll spot a guy who is fit and I'll think "Wow, I'm totally attracted to him." Which inevitably brings on that feeling of "Well, if I'm attracted to him because of his shape, what must guys think of me?" It's a huge self-esteem issue too, I was picked on because of my size in primary school. And eventually with all these thoughts I figured. Fuck it, I'll just do the hard work.

So I used the exercise bike and my weights *gift for christmas* and I couldn't see much difference. But, about a month ago. My Mom bought Wii-Fit. And I decided to give it a go. I went from my 95KG to a 89.5KG in a few short weeks.

I haven't done anything differently, aside from change a couple of eating habits and here I am. A much more confident me, ALTHOUGH I would like to point out that my goal is 84KG Then I shall be happy. I hope. Heh.

Anyway, I guess what I want to say, is that it's not impossible, there are no quick fixes to weight issues. I mean, you can try the fad diets, Which do work. But once you're off them? What happens? You don't magically learn to eat less. If you want real results, get active, go for a walk everyday, dont eat less, or more just eat smarter. Get a gym membership, buy a treadmill DO SOMETHING.

They say 30 minutes of exercise a day is enough to lose weight. Providing you eat properly.

Nothing worth having comes that easy, and something like this? It's going to take a lot of work.

So get out there, get active and have fun, I didn't think I'd enjoy exercise and sure somedays I just don't want to do it. But most of the time, I feel twenty times better for doing something instead of just gorging myself.
