First thing's first. I'm not trying to sell you anything. There are no affiliate links on this post. I just wanted to share that I lost 120 pounds! I started my weight loss journey back in August 2013. I was 310 pounds back then. 8 months later, I'm now 190 pounds! I've always been a big guy. When I started working from home, that's when I really ballooned. I let myself go and ate whatever the hell I wanted. I lived a sedentary life and spent most of my time in front of the computer. So what happened? One night, I woke up with intense chest pains. I thought that was the end for me and that I was having a heart attack. Fortunately, it was just extreme heart burns. However, I realized that it could have easily been a heart attack. I took one look at my lovely wife and beautiful 2 year old daughter and decided that it's time I make a lifestyle change. I started the following day. Being 310 pounds (with a slipped disc), I knew that I'm limited to just a few exercises. I started with some light jump ropes. I was still eating a lot, but figured that exercise can at least help. However, I started making healthier choices as to what I ate. Things changed when I discovered the MyFitnessPal app. I downloaded it and used it to track my calorie intake. I set it so I can lose 2 lbs a week. I switched from white rice to brown rice and limited myself to just a cup a meal. I also started eating more vegetables and lean meats. I also avoided fruits because of their high sugar content. When I got down to below 200 lbs, that's when I started eating fruits, mainly bananas. I searched online for a good exercise for the morbidly obese (yes, I used that term) and chanced upon "Walk Away the Pounds" by Lisa Sansone. It's a power walking program that you can do at home. I started by walking a mile a day and increased it as I became fitter. Now, I can easily do 8 to 10 miles of power walking a day. I also gave up on rice. I eat wheat bread (1 to 2 slices a day) and vegetables for my carbs and eat a lot of fish (tuna) and chicken breast. The pounds started dropping like flies. When I hit 220 lbs, that's when I started hitting the gym and playing basketball. I now play basketball once a week and go to the gym 2-3 times a week. I still do power-walking regularly. I make it a point to exercise 6 days a week. I'm also using other fitness apps like Runtastic and FitStar. I make sure that I track everything. I normally eat around 1800 to 2000 calories and burn around 600 calories through exercise so I net around 1200 calories a day. I always feel full and I don't starve myself. I allow myself a cheat meal a week. Here's how my usual day looks like as far as meals are concerned: Breakfast: 1 piece wheat bread and fried egg (No salt; just black pepper and paprika.) Mid-day snack: Nuts (Although lately, I'm taking whey protein shakes. I just started this week.) Lunch: Roasted vegetables with olive oil, a little salt, pepper and LOTS of garlic (green beans, squash, cauliflower, broccoli, Brussels sprouts, etc.) Snack: 1 piece wheat bread with peanut butter and banana Dinner: Before, this is usually just like lunch (lots of veggies and protein). Now that I'm starting on whey protein, it's a serving of whey protein and an egg. I squeeze in a couple of exercises a day. In the morning, I do power walking for about 4 miles. If I have time, I go to the gym or jog. In the evening before dinner, I do a FitStar workout. They're usually bodyweight exercises. As mentioned, I cheat on my diet a meal a week. However, I still make healthier choices. If I'm having burger, I say no to additional toppings like cheese, bacon, etc. I don't order drinks and fries. Also, I make it a point to burn off the calories by exercising the same day. The last time I weighed 190 pounds was almost 20 years ago. By the way, I'm a 32 year old guy. It's really a joy to hear people comment on how young and good I look. Best of all, it feels good to know that I'm not going to die on my family soon because of obesity. It's inspiring me to do more. I'm looking to hit 180 pounds soon. That should be enough for me. I'll just focus on toning when I reach that weight. Hopefully, I'm able to inspire a lot of fellow BHWers. It's not too late for a lifestyle change and working from home is not an excuse.
