Let's start with some home truths....
I'm not perfect, not even close! Nor is my journey the perfect way to get fit. However, I did it. I also managed to put some body fat back on, but hey listen, I'm nowhere near as unfit as I was 10 years ago!
My personal battle will forever be to NEVER, EVER have to buy 42 inch waist trousers again. NEVER have to by XXL T-Shirts again, NEVER tip the scales at 120kg (264lbs) again.
I've learnt a lot in that time, but I contiue to learn, and fight the battle of never EVER bring back to my old weight of 120kg (260lbs)
I know how hard it was to get where I am today, so I can relate to that person looking in the mirror every morning and thinking "I need to do something, but it's just so hard!"
Here's the trick, here's how you get started.....Just get started! Stop delaying, waiting for the right time, or next week, next month, next Monday. Start now, before your health becomes a serious issue. All it takes is making a plan, sticking to the plan, and being patient and disciplined all through. It might feel like a sacrifice for now, but it'll be worth it in the end!
Nutrition the Essentials -
Simple starting plan...
Plan your nutrition for at least 3-4 days at a time. Track your calories via Lose It or My Fitness Pal and make sure you aim for 17.5 multiplied by your weight in Kgs or your weight in pounds multiplied by 8 to be in a calorie deficit. Next start tracking your activity levels to ensure you're burning more calories than you're consuming. That's the basics. Start adding exercise once you're ready, and then you can start thinking about increasing your calories. That's right, eventually you'll be eating more and more as you exercise, and still lose body fat! Mind blown! 🤯
