I had a big realization when we had our recent trip in Cebu. I am obese.
It was a wake up call. I saw my photos and looked in the mirror realizing that my tummy is hanging low and humongous that even a black shirt or my best angle can’t fake it. I was 24 lbs. overweight and it was alarming. This has been the biggest I got in my entire life and I am pissed, mostly with myself for letting this happen. I had no control over food and I thought a change is necessary. Early February, I had the courage to enroll myself to a gym and got myself a personal trainer for a change. I thought I am in desperate need for proper guidance. I have been to gyms before and nothing really drastic happened, I had no focus. This time I thought it wouldn’t hurt if I try getting a personal trainer. Maybe he could get me focused in really losing weight and gaining muscles. So I started and now on my 3rd week.
It was a total change of perspective from the very beginning of the program. I eat healthier and I am now in the process of really losing the fat and gaining muscles. I am optimistic I can do it. I am dead serious of making it to my target physique.
So that’s what I’ve been busy with the past weeks. I have to say though, I feel healthier and better now that I am working out on a regular basis. I encourage you to try it too. Happy first day of March!
