When I started this blog back in June of 2012 I was aiming to become a fitter me. The main reason why I decided to do this was because of a gout attack I suffered in April 2013. For those who haven’t experienced it before – good for you! For those who have – I feel your pain!
In June 2012 I missed calculated my weight. I thought I was 220 lbs (99.8kg). Good thing I quickly saw my error. I was actually at 247 lbs (112 kg). To counteract this error I made I decided to push myself even more. In July 2012 my right knee, which was already damaged because of my Tae Kwon Do days in high school, started to act up and made it almost impossible for me to do any exercises until November 2012. Then at the last month of the year I decided to give my knee a try and jogged around my block. I was happy to find out that my knee held up!!!
2013 started with me at 242 lbs (109.8 kg). I’m happy to report that I am now at 217.2 lbs (98.5 kg). That means I’ve lost around 24.8 lbs (11.2 kg) since January 2013.
