Today I embark on my most serious weight loss effort ever. The goal isn’t so much just the weight reduction, it is also the desired improvement in blood numbers with respect to cholesterol and related measures. So to visualize my goal, I took roughly 12 kilos of meat/fat out of the freezers and took this photo above. Two jumbo chickens at 3 kilos each, nearly a kilo of chicken wings, two kilos of pork belly or liempo, a kilo of Zubuchon lechon sisig, and roughly 2 kilos of fatback in the lower right hand corner. Yup, that’s what 12 kilos looks like. THAT IS PRECISELY THE AMOUNT OF WEIGHT I AM TARGETING TO LOSE OVER THE NEXT FEW MONTHS! It’s kind of gross in a way, I actually can’t imagine where all of this excess weight is residing on my body at the moment. But it’s there. And I am going to do my damndest to get rid of it. This is the first time I have PAID to lose weight, and a tailored program has been sent to me to follow to the letter, after providing extensive blood test results. I won’t divulge any details just yet; just wanted you all on notice why I might be cranky in the weeks ahead. :) But wish me luck.
P.S. I had to give up my beloved Diet Coke at the same time. So this is very serious. :)
