Because I’ve lost so much weight, in what apparently seems like a short time, I was asked today how I did it and how they could do it. So I said: “Step one, stop eating shit. Step two, start doing shit.” That is the double edged chisel. More specifically, I cut out ALL junk, such as sodas, candy, fast food, sugars, and even with my coffee I now only drink it black. Also, because my weight was so high that a doctor said I had reached a danger point in my life, I decided to stop eating altogether except for one meal daily, at night, at 9 o’clock. In other words, I only ate once every 24 hours. Contrary to conventional advice, eating only once a day is NOT dangerous. In fact, eating five small meals throughout the day (something many doctors and fitness “experts” suggest) is outdated and simply bad advice. As far as step two, doing stuff, I stayed away from the gym and simply got out and enjoyed life more. I started walking daily, extended the duration of my walks, watched the sunset, watched the sunrise, went to parks, swung on swing sets like I did as a kid, played on the playground (after all kids had gone home for the day), learned how to skateboard, went swimming, walked the malls if the days had got too hot, and tons of other things. I just got out and experienced life more. My depression has got lighter, my overall health has improved, and now I might even start working out a little to tone up and increase muscle mass. But I won’t overdo that. I don’t want to spend my life in the gym. I will merely use that as a tool; icing on the cake. (Which I no longer eat). “Stop eating shit, start doing shit, stay out of the house, enjoy your own company, live life.” I guess that’s all I’ve done. Even if it didn’t work, I would have started to have fun. But it did work. I burned my excuses, stopped feeling sorry for myself, got off my ass and made better decisions for myself. Thought I’d share.
