A few years ago…

me a few years ago
me a few years back

Yes, I have decided, it is now or never. I have never made a new years resolution before, but this year it’s going to be different. I’ve decided I’ve had enough of being fat and unfit. So this year, I am going to do something about it. Having been inspired by a few youtubers out there who have documented their journey, I’ve decided I am going to do the same.

A little about me: I’m just a normalish guy, 37 years old, Sydney (Australia) born and bred. 5’7ish (or just a shade over 170cm for us non-imperialists) and weight 105kgs (that’s 231lbs). I wouldn’t necessarily class myself as obese, but I am most certainly overweight. And I want to lose that weight. I’m a normal guy, with an almost normal job (but I work a 12 hour roster, and so this is going to be one of my greatest challenges: Maintaining a strict regime while working). I don’t smoke (and after tonight) only drink on those very rare special ocassions… Like birthdays, farewells and stuff.

But this all starts tomorrow :-)

You’ve heard it all before, haven’t you?

It’s not the new year yet, and we have one more night of celebrating before I go on my no alcohol binge (for at least one month) while I start trying to shed these love handles and other superfluous fatty over-hangs. Having a few drinks 2 or 3 or 5 times a week is going to be a thing of the past.

The Last Meal
The Last Supper

And so is a meal such as this!

For years one of my favourite meals has always been Chicken Kiev. That is, until I met Daniel, the international quisine chef at the Woolpack Hotel. This Sirloin with blue-cheese sauce is simply “to die for”

And if I had of kept eating it, I probably would die… But it’s soooo nice. Ahh well, A thing of the past now (I might have a commemorative
meal tonight – just so that the taste can linger for one last moment…)

After all, it is New Years Eve!

Dave.

Edit: In moving to the new site I thought I would revamp this a little. I had the best of intentions when I started this site, I really wanted to lose the weight, and for a good while I did. I dieted twice and on the second occasion I actually lost almost 20kgs. When I started the 2nd diet I was back to my original starting weight. Right now, I’m almost back to it again. In the last year I have been everywhere between 89.9kg and 105.5. I SHOULD do it again!
