My Journey - Reliving it : Week 1

Posted On 10:09 PM by Keeven |

I’m not gonna... eat that pasta. I’m not... gonna eat it. I’m... not gonna eat... Not this time. I chew on these words, force them through my head. Where people have delicious meals, I have plain, dull meals. I'm always at home, eating another meal alone, with constantly repeat of the word CONTROL and a plate of chicken & brown rice. Not forgetting is another jug of water. This is only my second week and I’m sick of it already.

Chew slowly follow by water. Chew and water. And I keep repeating that. This is my method. This is my form of control. This is the system. Listen, the toughest part isn’t the workout. Yes, cardio or lifting can be tough, but it is nothing compare to eating. It’s the diet. The way of eating. Diet is what differentiates success and failure.

I'm hungry again... Why does this always happen? The feeling of starvation and the loud roar in my stomach is killing me. I envy others who get to eat whatever their heart desires without putting on additional pounds. The food I'm having now is always dry and tastes like shit, but at least there is still something in there. Some days, I'm so hungry that I force myself to sit and stare. I break out in a cold sweat. I have to will myself to stop. Yeah, living like this is real agony.

People in the other world, they don’t understand. They can’t. They eat instinctively. For me, eating is another part of my life that must be controlled. I’ve had to learn how to eat, overcome my appetite. It sounds fucked up, but that’s what I gotta do to prepare for this. It sucks and I’ve still got miles to go.

    I totally agree about the diet part being the hardest but remember that food is fuel for your body. You shouldn't be starving and you definitely shouldn't be breaking out in cold sweats!

    Now I know you've been doing this longer than me but please remember that food really isn't the enemy. The types of food is.

    How many calories are you getting in a day?

    This is true! My friends are always saying "eww... wtf are you eating?!?!"

    I don't have any bodybuilding friends or anyone who actually cares about eating healthy food in general.

    Your transformation definitely inspires me Keeven!

    Hi everyone.
    You are totally right Annie, we should not be starving ourselves. But I believe my temptations for more food might be due to the disatisfaction of the taste of my meals. Like I say I can't eat like many others. But I also discover ways to fulfill this void. It will be disclose in the weeks to come. And I agree with Kai that there are not many others out there who actually understand us. The moment we decide to walk down this road, our diet will never be the same again. Thanks for all your kind words.

    Dancer, soldier, personal trainer or Italian plumber, you just never understand what you could become once you enter the realm of online games. You could find yourself flying a plane or jet skiing clear blue oceans, but you should have some tricks in your arsenal, and the following article will offer those.

    Don't abuse your game xbox and its accessories. Doing so could shorten their lifespans. Gaming devices are extremely fragile. Before you understand it, you could destroy your xbox or one of the controllers. In addition, you should never throw down your controller whenever you're angry because you could destroy your controller, which will end up costing you lots of money.

    When possible, download and try demos of games to determine if you actually like it. You can find out if you will even like the game play. Although, it is good to exercise caution when downloading demos. Be sure you only download from well-known websites to avoid computer issues.

    The biggest choice to make as you enter the world of gaming is: computer or wii? A lot of games come on many platforms, which gives you a lot of flexibility. But depending on the game, it might be best to play certain ones on a particular platform since it works best.

    Game store employees are a great resource when it comes to learning about new games. A lot of people like different kinds of video gaming, you should look to branch out. The employee should be able to give you a few ideas of what games to buy.

    Before allowing your child to use a gaming xbox online, be sure that you have set it to "family friendly" options. This will filter out inappropriate content so your child will not be exposed to it. You can also determine how much they can chat with others while online.

    What is your body doing as you play? While sitting at a computer game, you might want to use a pillow or other device to support your spine. If you really get into your action games, you might find yourself sitting for hours on end. Try to schedule regular breaks to get up and move around.

    Video games can be used to get fit. Physical motion sensing technology is spreading through the industry. Today, you can get your exercise in through certain sports-related online games like yoga. You can get in shape at home doing this.

    Many modern online games give you two choices. First, you can earn in-game content and rewards gradually through investment of your time and work. Or, you can just flat out buy them with your real world money. Consider how much advantage these purchases will actually give you in game. Many cash purchases don't really do that much to help you win the game. Or, they might improve it a lot and save you tons of time.

    All games have ratings thanks to the ESRB. Games are appropriate for ages 3 and older if they receive an EC or Early Childhood rating. If your children are six and older, a rating of E is appropriate. A rating of E+10 is for people older than 10 years old. If your game is rated T, it is suggested that you be 13 or older to play it. "M" (mature) rated games are for people who are at least 17 years old. AO indicates the game is just for adults and RP signifies "Rating Pending."

    Figure out how to operate the safety and parental controls of any gaming system that comes into your home. You can likely make adjustments that keep kids from viewing mature content. Some allow each gaming profile to be customized separately, allowing adults to enjoy games not meant for younger audiences.

    You already know how much fun you can have playing video games. People from all over the world get great joy from online gaming. Now that you have had a chance to look through these ideas, you probably feel that you know a lot more about gaming. Good luck to you!
