Unlike other activity trackers that only count steps and estimate calories burned, the MYZONE belt monitors your heart rate to determine effort exerted during exercise. The technology guarantees accurate and personalized results that will help you make the most of your workouts. MYZONE also features a unique point system that levels the playing field no matter how fit you are, and rewards effort, not fitness.
Highly recommended for those who are on a mission of weight-loss and who are regulars at the GYM.
So I have learnt that while I have been on this journey of self motivation to changing my life, I have came to the realization that that we are what we eat. Well I became what I ate.
I have come to the realization through experience that typical calorie restriction behaviors like limiting or cutting out certain foods caused psychological damage (Laughing). Shall we call it a “Diet backlash” that occurred with me, where even the thought of a “forbidden” food was enough to set me off and head me in the direction of over eating.
I felt that as soon as I TOLD myself I COULD NOT have something, it became impossible to stop thinking about it – Am sure I am not in this on my own.
The more I tried not to eat certain foods, the more I was inclined to overeat!! and once I had access to them, I would be like lets do this (eat) since who knows will I be able to eat these yummy foods again. . The cycle continued.
My Conclusion for my self and I think for many others globally is as follows:
“food restriction, followed by deprivation, caused my overeating, then guilt.”
I have learnt to say NO! 90% of the time, and if i feel like eating something then I take a bite (this is rare), but I do.
“I should be accepted the way I am” would always be the little voice speaking to me. March/APRIL 2017 I reached my maximum weight which was 392 LB / 178 KG – that is what the scale said to me Last.
I saw my son beginning to develop really minor traits of his father and myself, of eating junk and it was a wake up call. I had grown up thinking that fat was ok, my mom had been fat (she lost more than half her body weight too later in life), some aunts etc. Yes the “loose weight” lectures were always given, but we don’t take heed to it.
I had to change that, so in March/April 2017 I started cutting down on my food. May 28th 2017, I joined Elite GYM with a personal trainer Coach Mohammed.
APRIL 2017: 392 LB / 178 KG, UK Size 34/36 (i did reach 36/38)
BY December 2017: 229 LB / 104 KG, UK SIZE 18/20
For the last nearly 2 months (2018) I have reached a Plato stage where my weight is STUCK at 207 – 217 LB / 94 – 98 KG, UK SIZE 14. this has been done without any surgery, just diet and exercise.
