Weight loss.. Again

It was nearing that time of the year and something in me woke up. It wasn't really the need to make any new year resolutions. I;ve had my share of resolutions, all of which lasted not more than a week. So much to resolutions.. but then i'm sure that most people who take resolutions do not really plan to stick to it.

I found out 6 months back that you really do not need an occasion to start something. One fine evening, i told myself im gonna quit smoking. Do not ask me why id decided, 'cos i myself do nto know till now.. Well, i had a few ciggiges at around 10.00pm and called it QUITS.

To top it, i blared it out to the world that i QUIT SMOKING. Some 30 comments later, most people egging me on, some doubting Thomases who just couldn't digest the fact that i had the will power to do it, i came out the winner. I had finally called it QUITS. 6 months down the line, many parties later, i still haven't touched a ciggy!

Somewhere during the end of 2011, i came to the conclusion that I am in a terribly bad shape... Not just the fat deposits, but also general health conditions were deteriorating. I couldn't walk, i Couldn't wear decent clothes and i was seriously getting away from the social world.

Like i quit smoking, something in me clicked - I told myself that its time to get ahead with life and live it the right way. and to make matters worse, i tipped the scale at 124 kgs. Thats a BMI of 49.. Very Obese indeed!

This was the time that i was looking at the option of Bariatric Surgery. The surgery effectively reduces your stomach size to about less than 1/3rd of the normal size. A non reversible procedure, i had decided on getting it done..Along with PMJ, went to meet the Endocrinologist hoping to get a date fixed for the surgery. But then he said lets have a look after 3 months of diet and if you still dont lose weight, we will consider the options..

I did lose heart hearing that.. I was willing to go under the knife in a week if required.. and here i am back to square one.. on diets and enforced exercises, both of which i hate..

Ok, to cut it short.. Im on a diet now.. I eat only veggies, lots of Sprouts and Green leafy vegetables, half a cup of rice, no milk, no sugar, no dairy products, no alcohol, no fried food..

The loss of 7 kgs in Month one has egged me on. I now walk 4 kms a day in around 32 minutes (gradually to increase it to 6kms in 60 mins), have started exercises for abs etc etc..

And i dont feel that I am giving up on life.. thats the most critical part of losing weight!!

Those wanting to lose weight, Im with u.. i know the pains of being obese!
