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

A 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 of walking daily. But I had one bad habit: eating 100 grams of Jalebi’s daily. If you don’t know what Jalebi is, it is 90% Sugar & 10% of Maida, i.e. Wheat Flour approx.

But then, after my post-graduation, I got a job in an IT Company as a Graphic Designer. By that time, all my exercises were stopped. I had almost two spoons of added sugar milk coffee five times daily. Then some food at 4 pm to be exact. So it was a very 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 2016, I got tremendous back pain, so that was my realisation point: I should do something about my health. I also got advice from relatives that stop doing the job and concentrate on my health first.

So on 1st January 2017, I started walking again daily for 2 hours, approximately 15 kilometres at a stretch. I started maintaining my daily diary of walk routines which I have been doing for the last six 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 daily walk diary, I have walked almost 207 Hours & 21 Minutes (Casual Walks not counted). So with that numbers, I conclude by keeping in mind that I take nearly 7 minutes to walk 1 Kilometre, so I can say that for the last four months, I have walked almost 1,777.28 Kilometres. Just to be exact, I have walked 120 times out of 134 Days in the previous 4 Months 1st January to 14th May 2017. Sometimes I walked twice a day & a few rest days in between. I was forced to buy 10,000/- INR Nike Branded Shoes Designed for Walking / Sprinting & Running; I have been through a slipper, sandal, and shoe bite.

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

I count this as one of the significant achievements in my lifetime.

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

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

Be Fat to Fit…!!!

Thanks & Regards

Few Clarifications & Updates:

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

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

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

Thanks & Regards
