My success story of being from fat to fit in 4 months by walking almost 2,000 kilometres in 4 months & 30 kilometres daily…!!!

My success story of being from fat to fit in 4 months by walking almost 2,000 kilometres in 4 months & 30 kilometres daily…!!!

Few things to clarify this blog post is all about my health, I was at my peak health condition in the year 2001 / 04. That was my college years when I was doing bodybuilding, weight lifting & 12 kilometres walking daily. But I had one bad habit that I was eating 100 grams Jalebi’s daily. If you don’t know what Jalebi is then it is 90% Sugar & 10% of Maida i.e. Wheat Flour approx.

But then after my post-graduation, I got the job in IT Company as a Graphic Designer by that time all my exercises were stopped I was having almost powder milk coffee 5 times daily. Then some food at 4 pm to be exact. So it was my unhealthy lifestyle period in my life.

I gained weight from 75 kilograms to 108 kilograms from fit to fat in 5 years.

So after 3 to 4 jobs in the year 2016, I got tremendous back pain so that was my realisation point that I should do something about my health. I also got advice from relatives that stop doing the job and concentrate on health first.

So on 1st January 2017, I started walking again daily 2 hours approximately 15 kilometres at stretch. I started maintaining my daily diary of walk routines which I was doing for the last 6 years. Nothing new but from 22nd February I started walking 2 hours twice daily i.e. 4 hours & 30 kilometres daily. Till today 14th May 2017.

So after looking at my walk routine daily diary it seems I have walked almost 207 Hours & 21 Minutes (Casual Walk not counted) so with that numbers I conclude by keeping in mind that I take almost 7 minutes to walk 1 Kilometre so I can say that for last 4 months I have walked almost 1,777.28 Kilometres. Just to be exact I have walked 120 times out of 134 Days of last 4 Months 1st January to 14th May 2017. Sometimes I have walked twice a day & few rest days in between. I have been through slipper bite then I had sandal bite then shoe bite then I was forced to buy 10,000/- INR Nike Branded Shoes Designed for Walking / Sprinting & Running.

I have almost loosed 7 KG of unnecessary body weight & 4 inches at the waist.

I count this as my one of big achievement in my lifetime.

Planning to keep this momentum going for the next 3 years…

I hope reading this blog post you find it inspiring & helps you to get momentum to start exercising to loose excess body weight.

Be Fat to Fit…!!!

Few Clarifications & Updates:

A few days back I checked my time to complete 100-meter walk & result came out that I take exact 1 minute to complete 100-meter walk so by this calculation I take 10 minutes to complete 1 Kilometre walk.

So I have to update you that I have walked 221 Hours & 18 Minutes. That means I have walked almost 1,328 Kilometres & not 2,000 Kilometres.

You have to add casual walking of (150 approx) to 1,328 Kilometre count.
