Is this life…..?

Starting weight: 88.8kg
Target weight: 63kg
Weight recorded on November 22nd 2013: 77.3kg


When I started training at the WPT gym in Bangkok, I was so wishing the three months would quickly pass…..now I have roughly ten days, I am thinking why did I wish the time away…..? Especially as I am making excellent progress with my weight loss and fitness.

This is what could be possible with my current training and diet:

 
Oops I just read the statement about putting my body in starvation mode!!
 

This has made me think, is life like this? Are we wishing this wonderful gift of life away? When we are young we are always wishing to be older so we can do 'adult' things, e.g. drive a car. Go out traveling, not have to be told what to do. Then when we are adults we are thinking I want to retire…..!

On a Monday one would go to work wishing Friday would quickly arrive. Literally not living and enjoying each moment but always looking towards the future.

This was my experience here, always looking forward to going home and giving Sangeet a huge hug. Sometimes hating being here, especially after the first month when I was training very hard and not making any dent to my weight.

Two years ago when I had the huge weight loss, within 4 weeks I had gone from 95kg to 70kg (so wish I had joined weight watchers, I would have been their ultimate winner, then could have gone on various chat shows, e.g. Oprah and “discussed” how I lost the weight through meditation and yoga, I could have made billions!!) the surgeon without taking any biopsies and whilst I was in theatre fully awake with a camera up my….well I am sure you know where. He announced I had cancer!! The week that followed was just so painful, I was in tears, in fact writing and thinking about it now has started to make my eyes water. Only then I wished I had done the things you are always putting off to the future.

We are always putting things off to the future, “I will go traveling when I retire” or whatever your heart desires. We should make the most of life and do it now. Who knows we may not reach the retirement age…..!!
