February Progress & the finale weigh in and result

9 months had passed since the day I made up my mind to get in shape and have a better body. 9 months was long, but yet short at the same time. Nonetheless it's been a really fulfilling journey, one where I get to know myself better, one where I test my determination once again at a ripe age of 32. I guess you can say I am relieved that this is over and yet at the same time looking forward to build on my success now. I still believed that there is more inside of me that I had not given yet. When I see through the pictures that I had took, a tear almost dropped from my eye. Alright I think I am really at a loss of words now and emotions running high now; let's just say no more and look at the pictures.

Finally! The final product of my 9 months of hardwork. Still lot's to be improved though.

All 10 photos put into a collage just like the way my idol did it.

My idol. Though I still do not know who he is, but his photos are truely my inspiration.

Our collages put together to compare. I think I did a great job imitating his poses right?

Our final poses side by side. Got the same "seh" right? lol. Hopefully my body can pass like his.

Alright, let's recap how the fatty me looked like 9 months ago (almost vomitted. haha)

Side by side look at myself before and after. I lost 17lbs.

Yup I guess this is it, the end of the story. Looking at this final before, after picture really brought tears to my eyes. I had never look so good since like 10 years ago. On a side note, I completely forgot to talk about my result for the final month. In the last month I actually managed to gain about 6 kg. A round of applause to myself. I set out to gain about 5 kg and I did it. Out of this 6 kg, about 4 kg are pure muscle mass as calculated by my weighing scale. 

Alright, this is actually not the end, but the start of a new journey for myself. Now is the time to build on it and achieve even better results. I will continue to post some of my pictures and stories here along the way. Do look out for them if you are interested. I love myself. Huat ah~!~!

January Progress

January had passes and I now weigh 74.3kg. Yes it was only less than 1 kg of gain from last month. Probably I was so used to eating less that I do not have the appetite to eat more, but I shall not give up and continue to work hard. At the beginning of my weight loss phase was also slow. Gaining weight was indeed as hard as losing weight; you need the mental discipline to force yourself to eat over your daily caloric expenditure.

I started going to the gym again, at least once a week for now as this period I am super busy with NTU IHCC with Vikings. I am afraid that I will gain but too much fats once I start bulking hence I also continued to run a little. I started to eat more, but cleanly. For a chicken skin lover, having to remove the skin when I eat chicken chop was really painful. I ate alot of clean breast meat this whole month.

Don't really like this angle, but that's the angle my idol used so gotta follow

8 months done, let's go for the final month now.

Definitely a big difference coming such a long way

To help me achieve my goals of bulking up now, putting on more lean muscles, I did some research and read about how people gain weight. I searched on how to gain 10kg of muscles in 2 months, as I believed that if I can lose over 10 kg in 2 months, I for sure am able to gain more than 10 kg in 2 months too. The research I done recommended me to take in 500 calories more than my daily requirement in order to gain mass. Of course this has to come with hard gymming too.

As said earlier, I still run because I am afraid of gaining too much fats while bulking, but in the end I only gain less than 1 kg. Therefore for the next month, I am going to cut down on all cardio and just focus purely on strength training. I will also just eat whatever I want now (excuse for not removing my chicken skin). I guess eating too clean is really very hard to put in the sufficient calories into your body without feeling like exploding. I am now also starting to take protein shake and creatine to help boost my training and muscle recovery. Hopefully with all these, I will be able to gain at least 5 kg in the next month. I will also continue my regular sun tanning as it really helps with my skin tone.

December Progress

Each month I am seeing progress for my body. December is again a month of celebration, which makes it hard for me to maintain my diet plan, but I still managed to pull through. Currently I weigh 73.9kg, close to another kg lost since 1st December.

For December I basically stuck to the same routine of dieting, and increase my intensity of body weight workouts such as push ups and sit ups. More definition in my muscles can be seen compared to 1 month ago. I also did regular tanning every Sunday which helps improve on my looks.

Darker skin to compliment

7 months had passed since 1st June.

Felt really happy looking at my improvements over the months

For January, I will start off the New Year by going to the gym more, on a more consistent basis. Time to also start gaining some mass back. I will still need those mass, muscles and strength for stunting. Looking to increase a kg or 2 by February.
