Operation GQ day 1290

Chest, Abs, and Cycling for Cardio. Someone has recently reached out to me in regards of weight-loss advice. Here is our conversation. Hope this can help some of you as well!

-> FB FRIEND: Hi Thailo

Ive just recently sent you a friend request, i heard about your weight loss journey and may i say im extremely inspired!!

Its one of the toughest challenge in my life, and i’m hoping to exchange some words of advice from a friend perspective with you thanks ahead

-> ME: Hi!

Thanks for the kind words. It was and can still be a tough challenge. What is your reason to want to lose weight? And how do you plan on achieving your goal?

-> FB FRIEND: Omg!! aww thank you so so much for replying!!!

my reason? im very much overweight plus im short.. not a good combination lol.. i want to be healthier.. My appearance made me insecure, prevented me from doing a lot of things i want to, even career wise, it’ll be beneficial to get into shape in so many ways

My plan? Workout more and eat less ??? ..i hoping i can at least workout 5 days a week .. How long a day would u recommend?? .. I need to find something to fit my schedule n keep in interest enough to stick to it…

i have a big family that does a lot of activities and good food together.. So I tend to get side track

How were u so motivated to stick to it?? I think the bad thing about me is i get side track .. Just horrible

I loss and gain it back..

Especially when my weight loss come to a stall.. I get disappointed and sighhhh

-> ME: Hey sorry I haven’t had a chance to reply. I have read your reply, but I am currently on vacation. Will reply once I get back in town.

-> FB FRIEND: Lol np at all! Thanks for the update! I think Ur super awesome for that already kaka!

And u do ur thing!! Enjoy that vacation u deserve every bit of it!!

Omg! I just realized something. Ur heathy food looks AWESOME!!! maybe prep packing my food would help!! Goodness, the healthy food i opt for havent been that ummm “yummy” hahaha

I learned something hihi thanks!

To be honest, at first i was afraid to tell u how unhealthy i eat or post pic but WOW!! U really know how to enjoy food!!! Im so glad!! workout hard n still enjoy!! U wanna be my si-fu (master/teacher)?? Hahaha

-> ME: Quick question:

Did you graduate from UCF?

-> FB FRIEND: Yes? Lol

-> ME: Then, you did it because you made it a priority, and not an option to graduate. I graduated from there as well. It means you took the time to study, do your hw, and had the discipline to stay focused when testings came around.

My point is of you make it a priority to lose weight and be healthy, rather than another trial and error, then you will do the research it takes, be consistent with your workouts and eating habits, and have as much drive to succeed as when you did to graduate out of UCF.

Just like school, if you studied and kept on failing all of your tests, then you would of most likely dropped out of college.

It’s important to achieve results in order to stay motivated.

Be read mentally. Just like college, success isn’t given. It’s earned!

-> FB FRIEND: Wow! Oh wow oh wow!! Can i say WOW again??! Haha, u just completely forever changed how i view about getting in shape and living a healthy lifestyle!!!

I honestly never thought of it like college, and u are 100% right! Success isnt given its earned! From now on, imma take it like a daily hw, and each week/month is a test, i must meet every “requirements” on a daily, weekly, monthly..so that i wont fail again, if i can grad UCF (you cant finish lol) .. How could i not here? In life!? My life!! Reaching my goal weight is graduation then let it be!! Haha

Believe it or not? After reading what you wrote im all energy up!!! On fire! Haha, like i can do it this time now that i got it mentally straight!! :))

They say the most valuable investment one can make is in his/her own health! And its about time i should strive to “profit” this time around! THANK YOU THANK YOU SO SOO MUCH!!! If i succeed i owe u big time! Wait, what an i talking about.. if? Nope, i WILL SUCCEED!!! Hahaha

You are the best!!!! :)))) again, THANK YOU!!!

-> ME: You’re welcome!

I must add:

Do you think you could of possibly learned everything you know at UCF in 90 days rather than 4 years?

Same with weight loss. It took you years to gain extra lbs, it will take time to get rid of it as well. I always advice this:

Focus on eating healthy, rather than some miracle diet. Eating healthy meaning learn to know what, why, and when to eat certain foods as well as what to avoid.

And yes, being healthy is one of the best feelings ever.

-> FB FRIEND: You made great points! It did took years! And i should pace myself when trying to go back down that scale huh?

What, why, when? I like that concept! Im learning a lot from you! Im going out today to stock my fridge with healthier food and do some prep for healthier meals so i could avoid going back to opting for the quick bad ones haha

May i ask about your workout routine or recommendation on this part?? Reduce the chance of having saggy skin?? I did my research of course, not trying to be a lazy bum here lol, i just want to seek for more advice from success like yourself :)) hihi

And also, just to let u know, your posts have been a big help as well keep up the great work!! Haha
