Hey guys. I know I’ve only wrote about fashion up until this point, however I would like to take this opportunity to talk about something else – fitness. I haven’t really talked about it much, but one of my greatest accomplishments is my recent weight loss, going from being 80kg to 60kg – about a quarter of my weight. Now, before I show you my progress pictures, I do have mention that they involve me being shirtless; so ladies, please try not get too excited!
These pictures were taken during the last days of my first year in university and my trip to London to visit a friend, where I was at my heaviest (roughly 80kg). I knew I was gaining weight since my diet at this point wasn’t exactly great (oven food and chippies 24/7), but when I saw the first picture of myself (white tee), I literally thought to myself; ‘holy shit I look fucking huge in that picture’. However, it was the second picture that made me rethink my lifestyle; I made that ‘fat’ face as it’s a inside joke between me and my friends, however that picture after the previous one made me realise that there isn’t really that much difference between the two – I was starting to develop multiple chins and my body is starting to look like a someone put it on photoshop and stretched my body out. I was getting fat to the point where my normal face is slowly replicating purposely made ‘fat’ face. It was then where I decided to do something about it.
I’m not gonna lie, it was hard work and it still is, but after a while I started to enjoy the soreness and of course enjoyed seeing the difference in the way I look or as Bart Kwan says ‘love the grind’. The following pictures are me at around the low ends of 70kg:
I know the two aren’t exactly the best two picture to compare since you can’t see my body in the 80kg pics; however I personally can see a massive difference between the two. my body looks much more slimmer in general and not only I have I lost that potbelly, I’m also starting to develop a six-pack which was pretty nice.
The lighting is inconsistent throughout the pictures, but you can see a difference between this picture and the ones when I was at 70kg. At this point, I’m in the low 60s; which has led to a more defined chest and a slightly better looking six-pack.
The idea of this post is primarily for me to personally reflect on my fitness journey and to give you guys a overall view of my weight loss. Of course, I understand I have a long way to go before I obtain the body that I want, however I do believe that I am certainty on the right track and with enough hard work and focus, I will eventually make it. Please look out for next fitness post which will look into my motivation and how I stayed focused through my journey. The final picture here is me today, there isnt a massive difference in thw two, however my chest is much more bigger and defined. However, I am currently between 60/65kg, which is the same as I was in the previous picture, however that is primarily due to the increase in muscle mass, so I ain’t worried about nothing. Before I leave you, I do like to say that I know that the ‘selfie’ like shot isn’t the best way to show my progression, so I do apologise for that.
