30 lbs by Thirty – Project 30

I hardly ever blogged about my birthday but this time I decided to write a little bit about that. You see, I turn 30 (yes the big three oh) in a couple of months time, less than 3 months to be a little bit more precise. A friend of mine once told me that when he turned 29, he embarked on a journey to complete a set a tasks for him to complete by the time he hit 30. That sort of gotten the clogs in my brain working a little while and I decided that I should embark on a similar journey.

To lose 30 pounds (lbs) by the time I am 30 years old.

Well of course the whole idea of losing weight is something I have been procrastinating and the final nail hit the coffin when my insurance agent informed me that because of my current weight, I got to pay an extra loaded premium.

At this time, I weigh about  107 kg. So my target weight to reach by the time I am 30 next year in February would be 93 kg (I am just rounding up). Hopefully by then, my pants/shirts (about 70% of my clothes) would have fit me better.

What I have installed for me would be to:

  • Diet – cut down on fast food completely, drink more water, eat less carbs especially at night and eat more fruits instead
  • Exercise – swim a little bit more at the swimming pool at my apartments, reschedule my night teleconferences and go for badminton!
  • Lifestyle – Get more sleep in order to let my body process the sugars in me
Let’s see if I can keep up with this project, Project 30!

  1. Well done on the resolution. Discipline is the key to achieving your target. Avoid deep fried stuff like it's poison and you'll be alright..;)
