It’s been about two months since I began writing this column. Ever since, I’ve been itching to write this line, “I have lost weight.” Yes, you read it right, as much I find it hard to believe as well, I have indeed lost weight. When a few friends told me that I did look like I’d lost some weight, I refused to believe it. Until, two days ago when I weighed myself at the hospital only to realise that I was four kilos lighter. Wow! I could barely believe it and trust me it was a wonderful feeling.
Although, I can’t really figure out if I’ve lost inches, I’m happy about the weight loss. It may be small, but it definitely is a start. My hard work has paid off and that too when I least expected it. Least expected, because I have not been regular with my work outs or my diet. But now that I know I’ve lost weight, it has made me more determined to keep at it for some more stunning results. Come to think of it, I have realised that weight-loss is not an overnight process, I need to stick to it.
When I was contemplating on what to write about this week, a colleague of mine, suddenly burst out in anger, “Gymming is so over rated. It’s just a fad that most people stick to for a maximum of one year, till they get married. Who would like to go gymming all their lives?”
This is when I realised how important it is to be consistent. Earlier too, I had joined a couple of gyms but had quit within 45 days. Gavinz is perhaps the only place that I’ve stuck to, thanks to my friend ‘R’ who keeps pushing me. I can now begin to see results or rather it shows for itself. Patience and consistency are the key.
So after not going to the gym for nearly three weeks now, I have vowed to change that and soon write about having lost 10 kilos.
Ouch! My hands hurt as I write, the after effects of upper body work out you see. My fingers hurt too, that’s the kind of workouts I have been doing but it is all worth the pain.
