92.2 kg!

Okay so as most of you know, this year I made a commitment to get myself healthy after moving here to Vietnam and being the heaviest I've ever been in my life. I moved here in August of 2008 and was 112 kg, roughly 246 lbs. Crazy, right? So I began dieting and running my behind off every morning at 4:30. That's right! 4:30am!!

Well, a couple of months ago, I got down to my lowest this time around: 90.8 kg. That's about 200 lbs. I was feeling comfortable with that weight and stopped exercising and dieting. How quickly the weight comes back on!!! I usually am totally unaware of weight gain or just in complete denial and thus convince myself that my pants have somehow shrunk in the dryer.

So Daddy (Mr. Chau) bought me a fancy shmancy digital scale that I can weigh myself on. He brought it up to my room on Saturday and then insisted I weigh myself to check it out. Granted, this was in the evening after I had been eating CRAP all day due to hitting up the American grocery store in Saigon for chocolate, crackers, and cheese wiz the previous day! So I got on that scale and saw an astonishing 96.5 kg!!! AHHHH!! I FREAAKKEEDDD OUT!! That's 212 lbs and a 12 lb gain in a couple of months. So THAT was my reality check. I have since gone back on my diet and 5am morning runs of 6.2 km (3.85 miles). I told everyone at work months ago that I would throw a party when I reach 88 kg (194 lbs), and I'm sticking to that promise! I'd be semi-happy with that weight, although ideally I'd love to be down in the 180s.

Like I mentioned earlier, I weighed myself with that horrid result in the evening and after eating all day. After this morning's run in the hot sun, a little later than usual because I slept in until 8am, I weighed myself again. I weighed 92.2 kg (203 lbs). I'm extremely satisfied with the effort I've put in thus far and the subsequent result. I am determined to get under 200 lbs!!!

Just wanted to share my story with you all. I know many of you have been motivated by my determination to lose weight. After a short two month hiatus, I am BACK with a vengeance and WILL accomplish my goal!!
