I think it is safe to say, when someone meant to be blogging about their weight loss journey doesn’t do so for a while, things are not going so well.
That has been the case with me. I’m still on square one, though I have been learning a lot about what makes me gain weight, or fail to lose it.
I really believe the yoyo-ing is hampering my progress drastically. I was reading an article about how a woman lost over 100kgs.
She said the reason she gained so much weight was because of yoyo-ing. Each time she went on a diet and lost weight, she would go back to her old ways of eating, and put all the weight back, plus more.
I can testify to this. I will lose weight because I am not eating much. But once I start stuffing my face, I will gain all the weight back, plus extra. And each time I re-gain the weight, it is super super super difficult to lose it again.
I believe I have basically fucked up my metabolism, and my body is holding on to everything I eat.
Because of this, I have decided to avoid, at all costs, indulging at the weekend. From Monday to Friday, I am disciplined, but at the weekend its a continuous stream of food going into my mouth.
Also, I want to focus on doing more strength training. I am hoping that through building muscle, I will kick start and boost my metabolism.
I’m a cardio person, and find weight training super boring, but I will have to find a way to sexy it up.
