I am Dee.
I've been fat for almost half of my life. I started gaining a lot of weight in 2000 [when I started college], and had only been keen on trying to lose it in 2006. That's when I started going to the gym, fully ignorant of the fact that I can never out exercise bad diet [i did not change my eating habits that time] I love lifting, but I hate cardio [except boxing!]. But since I am fat, fitness instructors kept making me do cardio [gawd, I hate running on the treadmill] which then makes me hate going to the gym, thus I eventually stopped going. [was a year or two, on and off].
Fast forward to 2010, I started boxing, which I fully enjoy except it made me very very hungry for carbs after training. I also went back lifting that time, now in a gym in Manila which has a rather different lifting program. I actually love their program, only consisting of deadlifts, squats, overhead press, chin-ups, and dips. But due to my school schedule [yup, I was in college for a LONG time] and other priorities in life, I went on and off training for 2 years then eventually stopped going.
I actually did not lose weight when I was training, but I looked and felt better. Glowing skin. All my shirts fit better. I was thinking clearly and mas alert ang mind ko.
Sorry, kung ang haba na. I joined this forum because I think I will learn a lot from people here. My goal is not really to have a ripped body, my goal is to lose fat and make my body toned. Nakakasawa na maging mataba, gusto ko maranasan mag tuck in ng damit.
Hindi rin ako nagmamadali, I just don't want to gain back all that I worked so hard to lose.
I am now at 87 kg. I was 92 kg six weeks ago when I started altering my diet. I started lifting again [at home] 4 weeks ago because, I don't know, I just didn't like how my body slumped when I lost 3kg in the first two weeks.
Ayun lang, hehe. My target weight is 70-75kg. I know it sounds heavy for a female my height [5'6"], pero I was 70 kg in year 2000 and I never weight-trained then, and I looked good. I don't know why I am heavier than how I look, I just am.
Thanks for reading!
