Those who read my blog and follow me on Instagram and Twitter know that I am a fitness buff and a gym rat. I easily get paranoid when it comes to gaining weight and when I slightly veer off my usual diet.
The reason why I am extra cautious and extremely careful not to gain a significant amount of weight is because I was incredibly out of shape not too long ago.
It’s true! For the benefit of those who thought I was this fit my whole life, you’d probably be amused to know that sometime back in 2010 (more or less), I weighed 185 lbs! For someone who merely stands 5’6″ tall, 185 lbs. is not at all good… any way you look at it.
So, when I decided to hit the gym and dedicated myself to getting healthy and fit, I promised to press on and never look back.
In a span of 6 months, I achieved my goal and reached my ideal weight of 138 lbs.
But, anyone would be wise to know that fitness NOT a goal. It is a lifestyle… a way of life. And for some, the real struggle is not in the process of losing weight, but in the never ending battle of keeping the weight in check. This is usually the case for people like me who easily gain. That’s why being paranoid and extremely careful of my diet is more often a necessity.
And with this constant fight against the flab, I try to find new ways to help make the battle a little bit easier.
Luckily, I discovered something that effectively aides in maintaining my weight and allows me to indulge a little bit more in the kinds of food I would normally try to avoid on a regular basis.
