kingkeld's Journal, 08 October 2010

I have reached my first goal. I am now under 150 kgs. This was done in 4 days, losing almost 5 kgs! I am so proud of myself, not cheating one single time, staying below my allowed calories all the time.

Now, next step is actually to consume a little MORE! I should be eating around 2000 calories for my body to not start working against me. If I eat too little, my body will refuse to lose the weight, and I really don't want that to happen.

I have been so focused on doing right that I get kind of obsessed by it. This has brought me to a calorie average of approx 1300 calories per day. Much too low, and too close to the limit where your bodys calorie burning will shut down.

So my goal is 2000 calories per day, to lose weight in a comfortable pace.

I read something very clever online one day, and this has kind of stuck with me.

"Losing weight is easy. If you want to weigh 100 kgs, just look at what a person weighing 100 kgs eat, and eat the same. If you want to weigh 90 kgs, just look at what a person weighing 90 kgs eat, and eat the same". You get the idea.

I really think this sums it up. Sounds like the easiest diet ever.

You eat a certain amount every day. Whatever you eat on average over a longer period, your body will adjust to - losing or gaining weight.

So - obviously - if you want to lose weight to 110 kgs, then eat what fits that. I looked at numbers online, and concluded that a 110 kg person would burn around 2500 calories per day, if they do the same (lack of) exercise as I do. I decided to settle for 2000 to pace it up a little. This also gives me a little "wiggle room" in case I can not avoid over consuming one day - parties, eating out etc.

This system has worked for me before, but my lack of motivation was what stopped me.

This is why I have spread the news this time. EVERYONE knows that I am losing weight, and I have asked EVERYONE to ask me about it when if they see me neglecting it.

This time I am doing it.

I am already almost 5 kgs down. 40 to go. This is happy Friday!
