I am a good 147 lbs now,I feel so energetic,happy,healthy & always ready. Like always I thank Allah for giving me the best fortune,my friends for noticing the fat loss,family for putting up with me & my diet and prolonged gym sessions & my Team,Team Provo and coach Phil.
Abbs are coming out perfectly,but I still have to concentrate on cardio & keep pushing the metabolism to burn.

Ketoish Day 68

March 20, 2012

I pretty much feel like a pro at this whole dieting, lots of different types of foods come my way but I refuse,always on a strict diet. I’ve been dieting now for about 68 days for the day. First and foremost I was thank God for giving me all of the good things that I have, all the bad things that I have, I thank God for allowing all of these great people around me to give me positive energy to go about on my diet and my health loss journey. In these past six months I have seen a transformation that I have seen in the past two years alone. After I got married I had gained a lot of weight, I was about 195, my height is 5 feet and 4 inches. Now I’m down to 149, I’m about to lose 1 to 2 more pounds before the beginning of next week hopefully by Monday. After that we’ll be the muscle gaining face.

As you can see there are some noticeable changes that has happened to me, also I have lost size on my waist.

Last year I was a size 36, the year before that I was a size 40. But now I am a size 29. all My clothes that I have worn last year doesn’t not fit me anymore, they are all too loose. It looks like I have to spend some money to get new shorts, new T-shirts because now I fit into a size small perfectly. I have either sent my old close to my family in Afghanistan or given my really nice medium to large size clothing to my brother-in-law who just came about two months ago. Also I keep drilling in holes in my belt because I keep losing more inches, it definitely is the time for me to buy some new clothing.

I have surpassed many of the “Mini-Goals” I have set for myself,a few examples is getting vascular,which means that I have no far covering the muscle as much.

Another goal was to get that V shape where my shoulders meet my biceps & triceps without flexing,also accomplished. The main goal besides being healthy now is to get a6-8 pack before summer,by 8 weeks. Another main reason why I’m doing this is to not just inspire friends and strangers but to inspire my little brother to change,eat healthy,tag along with me at the gym & learn instead of pretending to know everything. I worry about all my family but especially him.
I’m pretty excited to see what my coach has in store for me,Coach Phil,when it comes to the diet,which is also key for anything. You are what you eat for sure!
I’ll still be doing my 1 hour cardio sessions but my diet will change,I’ll be adding more carbs,more protein,essentially getting bigger & bigger steadily while burning much much more fat at the same time. By Summer you all will definitely see a new me,with abbs,never before seen abbs!

So I’ve been on Keto diet for about 55 days in a row now & it’s been a good ride. I have done things I thought I could never do,lift weights I thought I could never lift,eaten food I thought I could only eat once and would have to change it. Today is a special day in my weight loss journey because this weight that I am seeing I haven’t seen for 10 years:

I’m leaning out some more as well,I have been improving my cardio to 1 hour each day but there are 2 days of the week where I can’t make it to the gym. I think if I go on those two days really late I should still bang out cardio,which is tough.
