Rene Descartes, the philosopher, once questioned his very own existence on this earth.

For me, I am no thinker what else an initiator of any thought-provoking  theorems. But my own journey through all my physical endeavours has set me thinking or I can say, doubting, the very exercises that I keep  on doing.

Like every other fat, obese, heavy-weight people with BMI over 23, my initial goal of starting this journey is so that one day I can become slim again and lose all the blubbers that are clinging to every organs inside me like a stuck leech.

Who doesn’t want to look good and I wait for the time I can fit into a size 32 or 31 pants. If ever.

But as ridiculous as pigs flying, even with all the exercises I’ve been doing, I’ve not been able to even shed a gram. Instead, my weight has increased by 2kg and this places my BMI at an all time high of 27.3.

And I thought running, cycling and swimming (okay I admit I’ve not been doing this) regularly will zap those stubborn fats into oblivion.

And who says that burning 7700 calories will reduce your weight by 1kg? I had a calorie deficit of 14,660 last month, which should translate to a reduction of nearly 2kg, not the opposite.

So where have I gone wrong?

But after this long rant, it doesn’t mean I’m quitting all these.

This struggle of mine will continue.

I promise.

Even if it takes forever.

Believe me.
