  • Weight Loss Updates

    Beginning of January this year, I joined this Forum. I have come to learn so many things. Thank you all.

    In order to Enlist in the Navy I have to lose weight. My weight was 225lbs, and basing on my height I am supposed to be 175lbs....that means I have to lose 50lbs to join...or to lose body fat percentage from 36 to 22.

    I started working out in gym and diet on January 12th, 2012. As of today (March 14th) which is like 56 days, I have lost 41lbs. I have 9lbs more to lose to go to MEPS. So I am sure the rest of my weight (9lbs to lose) will be lost up to the end of March, so that beginning to April to be in DEP.

    NB: It was my first time to be in the gym...I have lost of experiences now. I know what kind of healthy food to eat, more importantly to count calories etc.

    Regards

            Congratulation on achieving great result. It is big advisement for you. You did because of hard and regular work out.
            You also need to take concentration on eating habits. Eating habits can destroy your all success or make it better then before. Use fruits, vegetables, salad, juice, dry foods. These have less fat and minimum calories which help to keep it under control. Try to burn more calories to lose further 9lbs. Drink excess of water.

              The difference between these two bodies: Left photo (Height 5'6'', Weight 225lbs, Waist 46'', Neck circumference 18.5'', Body fat percentage 38%) while the Right photo (Height 5'6'', Weight 170lbs, Waist 35.5'', Neck circumference 15'', Body fat percentage 22%). The current body (photo to be published soon) = weight now is 165lbs, waist 35'', neck 15'', body fat percentage 21%. Before 1st January 2013, my body fat percentage should be not more than 18%........that's my current objective. Thank you to my wife Marie Makulilo and my son Benedikt Fulbright Makulilo for your love and support in this tough journey.

              I am working on weight training right now.... gaining muscles/strength and be fit for RTC in 20120802

              I am also writing an article on how I lost all weight for the reason to join the U.S Navy. I think it might be helpful for others too. I lost 50lbs in 75 days then 10lbs more after signing contract...now I am 165lbs

              Please open those two links above to see my photos before losing weight and after

                I had to lose weight also to go to MEPS. I needed to be 149, when I started I was at 199. When I hit 156, my Petty Officer let me go on measurements. I had to suck it in, exhale and then take a deep breath for insurance to make the 32 inch waist. The last 8 pounds are hell to get off and even worse to keep off. Today I'm 148 and my waist is 31 inches without sucking it in. I think signing the contract, knowing that I'm now obligated by law to lose the rest of the weight and keep it off, or face supreme embarrassment and shame, was and is the best motivator for me. You should check if your Petty Officer will let you get in on measurements. Keep up the good work and I hope you get the rate you want.
