Only 12 weeks!
To be honest, I didn’t expect to get the results I did, especially after all the ‘cheat meals’ and beverages I was consuming.
What Mata had to say…
To be honest, I found it real simple and easy to follow. Simple exercises, simple meal plan. No hassle, no big spending, i.e supplements.
The meal plan was very simple. I used it as a guideline throughout my 12 weeks. When I felt like a treat, or craving a nice take away meal, I will get some fried chicken from a roast takeaway place and a nice roast chicken burger. As long as it’s under my calorie intake for the day. Like what Lee told me, “Diet should be simple. Don’t deprive yourself of it. If you really crave it, then have some, but don’t let it become the normal again”.
You’ve got to have a social life, it should never be something you have to fully sacrifice to achieve your goals/dreams. Try to alter the way you engage into these functions, but still have fun! A quote I always like to use is, “Stay committed to your decisions, but stay flexible on your approach”
To be honest, I didn’t expect to get the results I did, especially after all the cheat meals and beverages I was consuming during the 12 weeks. I was truly amazed!
My initial goal was to hit the double digits again (99kg) but once I got there, I thought, “Wow, I can actually push out some more before 12 weeks”. So I aimed for 95kg but I didn’t quite get there (1.5kg off). But still, I am really really happy of my progress thus far. I can vouch that hard work does pay off. If you put your mind into something, you will achieve it and beyond!
I must say, training becomes an addiction after a while, but that’s just me I guess. I’m really enjoy it!
Advice for others
Stay focused on what you really want, but be flexible. As Lee says, training and diet should be simple and achievable. There might be times where you go off track, but always try to come back to your primary focus.
Diet is the absolute key to losing the weight. No lies. Like the saying “Abs are made in the kitchen”, I totally agree with it 100%.
Be patient. These transformation don’t and will not happen over night. There might be times when progress slows down and it can be frustrating. Find out why (this is where Lee is helpful), fix it and keep going.
Do everything with purpose, set out short-term goals and work towards achieving them before progressing further. Goals should be realistic and achievable in what ever time frame you’re aiming for. And last but not least, be happy and enjoy it. The compliments you will get is time well worth the sweat, frustration and discipline that you have to go through.
Great lifestyle! I also get to enjoy my island food, and don’t have to deprive myself of it.
