    At 20, I could do push-ups with one arm. Now, I'm unable to do a single pull up. Those 90 kg are too much, hard as I try. But after some tender attempts for 2 weeks, I now can do it once. It's a start.

    What are your fitness-goals?

    Try again, try harder - I'm surprised at what raw veggies can do to shrink one's belly fat :happy1:

    About two weeks ago I realized that I'm getting too much belly fat. I downloaded and printed the "5BX Plan-Fit For Fifty", an exercise program that promises to keep you fit with just 11 minutes a day of exercising. It's been sitting on my desk untouched since then.

    I'm now eating boiled eggs sold by 7-11 for 15 B (for 2).

    No carbs for dinner. Darn! Pizza Company's "buy 1, get 1 free" offer is so tempting).

    No shit! I just succombed!


    Which reminds me, I'm supposed to be investing in a juicer.

    Antabuse or its equivalent is OTC here. That can be a big help.

    All told I dropped 24 kg is 60 days, though towards the end the weight stopped coming off so quickly (lost just 2 kg in the last 10 days). Since the end of the fast, I have gained 8 kilos, and most of that was during the holidays.

    stop eating s::t and exercise and keep off everything except that hasn't been picked or pulled from the earth. Loosing weight ain't difficult

    That is bloody impressive Ramses and credit to ya.
    Could do with losing some weight myself, not as much as you Ramses but would like 8 Kg's to come off. I went up about 13 Kg's after stopping the smoke of which I don't mind that gain given why. I'm now 83 kg ..75 would be dandy.

    I'm off to check that link now:thumbsup2:

    Update: I want to add Psyllis Husk (dissolved in water, then drank very quickly) to my diet.

    Then there is a nice workout at Sixpackfactory :thumbsup2: Tried that today but no way could I do that even 3-5 minutes.

    One side effect is that none of my pants are fitting any more. Went wild on Ebay buying a smaller size - used. Good brands using saddle stiching on jeans might be worth it.

    Let's the journey begin!

    Try those boiled eggs for a snack!
