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.
To see how I started to lose weight, you can read my guest post at Daniel Scocco’s Daily Blog Tips, entitled, “What Has Blogging Got To Do With Losing Weight?”
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:
