Hit and miss

I’ve tried and succeeded at losing weight (I’ve lost 20 pounds to be exact). But it seems all good things must come to an end, sigh. I feel like a crap (sorry for the term) because I think I’m starting to gain back what I have lost in the past months.

After working hard to get to 64 kilogram four weeks ago, I’m now back to 67 kg. What happened, for Pete’s sake!

I stopped (but not entirely quit) exercising. It’s not a decision but an outcome of being a lazy butt. The old (lazy self) is creeping up on me.

I’m slowly feeling and seeing the bulge in my tummy again. I hate it and I have to do something about it before its too late for me.

People who stopped exercising are bound to experience the following effects, according to livestrong.com’ ‘The effects of stopping exercise’.

  1. Muscle shrink
  2. Mood changes
  3. Decreased fitness level
  4. And withdrawal

I don’t know about you, but I think I’m already experiencing the last three effects. As for the muscle shrink, I have no way to measure it, all I know is that I’m getting big again.

I wanted to end this post with a positive note. I’M NOT GIVING UP!
