My name is Kevin O’Connor. That’s me in the before and after photos above over an 8 month period. It’s hard to believe now but on March 1st 2017 I was tipping the scales at 100 Kg on the left and in November 2017 I’m weighing in at 64 Kg and continue to maintain that weight.
I’d like to share with you how I lost the weight but in order to do so I must take you back to 1989 to South-East London where my 11 year old self was sent over to the corner shop for bread and milk.
Stuff was cheap back then, remember?!
You see even back then as a child I was overweight. Being picked last for team sports, or coming in last or second to last on Sports Days for pretty much any activity. It was just normal for me to not do well physically.
I never beat myself up over it, I had just gotten used to it. I got used to being unpopular, picked last for everything and generally just remained a shadow for most of my childhood when it came to all physical aspects.
So upon entering the corner shop for bread and milk my eye was drawn to a row of magazines -one in particular. It was a men’s fitness magazine and the headline read:
“Even at 39 You Can Still Have a Six Pack”
It’s strange to me now thinking back on this, whatever reason I was drawn to the text on that magazine cover, it stuck with me all these years.
As each birthday rolled past I would ALWAYS be reminded of that magazine cover and what it said to me. My teen years rolled in and out and that cover appeared in my mind each February when my birthday came around.
In my twenties I’d remember the magazine cover once more and saw the target age 39 as a long way off still but that I’d fulfil that childhood promise of having that six pack before I was 39.
My thirties weren’t long creeping around.
SHIT. I was turning 39 soon and according to my BMI number I was obese. I had to do something as my personal deadline was fast approaching and I’d soon be turning 39 so in July 2016 I joined a gym and began working out and following a workout program.
Then in January 2017 I had my body fat measured... I was at 21% and ARGH! I was still obese! I’d not lost any weight and in fact had gained some due to the Christmas Holidays!
I had a month to get that six pack I’d promised myself over 28 years ago... Was I gonna do it? HELL NO!
Not only had I NO CHANCE of fulfilling my childhood promise of having that six pack by my 39th Birthday, I was soon going to become a daddy for the first time!
By Mid February my daughter arrived and my world lit up! I wanted to do everything and anything for her and I realised to do that I needed to make sure I was going to be there for her for as long as I could. I wanted to play games with her. I wanted to run in the park, push her on the swings, lift her up and do all the things a daddy should be doing. But I was OBESE and had fallen into DadBod territory.
Then DISASTER STRIKES - My 39th Birthday came around end of February.
As far as possible from a six pack and now a new OBESE father, I had to make a change.
I had to revolutionise DADBOD.
I had to keep that promise to my 11 year old self!
So on the 1st March 2017 I began my weght loss transformation fuelled with my strong reason WHY and keeping score of my efforts in three key areas - Mindset, Meals and Movement which I now call:
Here’s EXACTLY how using The Calorie Snipers Way got me in the best shape of my life: I made the whole process of weight loss into a game! That’s right, I gamified my weight loss! I knew it takes about 30 days to form habits, so I committed to simply score myself in three key areas that would allow me to create the good habits I would need to lose the weight. Every day I would score myself in three Key Areas, listed in order of importance:
Now if I did all three I would give myself a total score of 6 points, 2 for each area.
But if I didn’t feel I gave a good enough work out I’d mark myself a 1.
If I did nothing, I’d score 0. Same for Mindset and Meals.
So each day my target was to “Hit My Six”.
I knew if I hit my six each and every day that I’d be on course to get the body I always wanted.
I just KNEW it would work for me! I created an app and used it to score my points and that’s Where my Calorie Snipers App comes into play:
I used my app every single day to help me hit my six and keep me on point. It helped keep me honest and focused on my goals. I also made sure to listen to the motivational playlists I included, along with the videos and sound tracks.
