It’s now 6 months that I have not been to a gym mostly because of a leg injury, ironically induced by a slip on the treadmill at the gym. I have ballooned to 220 pounds from my ideal of 175 pounds. Now that my leg is cleared and healed following physiotherapy, and now that I am pain free with no limitation to my range of motion, it’s time to recruit all my systems and resources towards getting back in shape and losing the extra weight.

In addition, it became clear to me that my eating habits are not as great as I once thought they were. These last few weeks I have made extensive research and read numerous books in this regard. What I am now aware of, is that, again ironically, my original efforts in following the nutritional advice prevalent few years ago, and thus my high-carb low fat diet, are the main culprit behind most of my weight gain.

Among the various books I read and research I made, I have decided that Body RX by Scott Connely will be the one I will follow both in my eating and exercise. I will keep an open mind however, continue reading and researching, and closely monitor my progress in case any plan modifications are needed.

So here is my plan:

1) Start heading back regularly to the gym
2) Hire a personal trainer for optimal results. Follow guidelines in Body RX Book
3) Completely change my eating habits as per Body RX book.

4) Get a body analysis and fitness test and create a fitness and nutritional log and document all my exercise and food intake. Chart progress.
5) The goal is to get as close as I can to my ideal weight. More importantly, goal is to drop waist size from current 38 to my standard 33.
