The Everlasting Gut

My ongoing battle to actually get fit and healthy has, unfortunately, not really gone well historically. This is mostly, frankly, more due to my own laziness than any "slow metabolism" excuse, even if I wish I had a speedier one, my metabolism is pretty normal.

So yes, historically as I say, not so great.

Up until this last year, and even then I've been a complete fricking slacker really. I've had a gym membership for about 9 months and have probably only really used it for 3 of those, last month included. That's pretty crap.

However combine that with kung-fu, and eating better (and more fresh vegetables courtesy of Full Bell Farm I have lost 20lbs in that 9 months. That's pretty darn good.

I started at 293lbs. Just shy of the big 300. Not acceptable, and yet still less than I weighed when I came to the US I might add.

Now, at 274lbs (ok, its 19... whatever) I'm just 20 more pounds from being the same weight I was when I was 17 years old. Concidering I'm in better physical condtion now (stronger at least) that's a good goal to have. My overall goal is 220, but.. well.. that's a long way off, so I'm not too worried about that.

So to sum up:

Previous Weight293lbs(when I started 24 Fitness)
Current Weight274lbs(what I weighed a few days ago)
Next Goal252lbs(what I weighed when I was 17)
Goal After that231lbs(what I weighted what I was 15!!)
Eventual Aim220lbs(probably what I weight when I was 14)


So what now? Well... Cardio, basically. I am doing some free weights, but mostly as a maintenance and general improvement things, not muscle mass.

Cardio, cardio, and more cardio. Lets do this.
