Sometimes I’m overweight by 10+ kg and sometimes I’m about right.
But come closer…I want to share something with you…I am much more inclined to be overweight than ‘about right’.
You see I love food like cakes, puddings, and chocolate. I simply cannot resist them.
Last year I gave up the 9-5 corporate world and started to work from home. During 2009, I added 14kg of FAT!
Imagine all that fat in a big pile – it would make you recoil, wouldn’t it?
There was a turning point though.
People who are hooked on drugs or alcohol say they have to hit a really low point before they can change.
Now my situation is nothing like some people find themselves when it comes to drink and drugs but I did have a very low point…
Watching a video of me jumping with the Masai Warriors during my wedding anniversary holiday last year.
You can see some holiday pictures here: Holiday Slide Show
The other tourist guy who ‘jumped’ before me did ok but I thought I could do better.
It was my turn. I thought I did pretty well. My wife was videoing. I finished my jumping. I was proud. I had jumped as high as I could.
We got home and watched the holiday videos. Of course, there was the one of me jumping with the Masai.
Remember when I said I thought I did pretty well. I didn’t. It was awful. It looked like I could hardly life my fat body off the ground.
That was my low point. I had to do something about it. I was so overweight.
Since that blog post was published I have lost another 6kg.
In you find yourself in a similar situation, simply watch this fun video and the weight will simply fall off:
