The 10 Pound Weight Gain Challenge Entry #2


It's been six days since the challenge began and my body feels like crap. Most people say that is easy to gain weight and hard to lose it. I'm starting to believe it's the other way around. I am eating like crazy, but my metabolism is making it a little hard for me to gain weight. So technically, it's easy for me to lose weight more than it is for me to gain weight.

I have been slowing down on alot of things I have been doing workout related. I sweat every single day whether it's walking or riding my bike to any location I go towards. For the next three weeks, I am only going to be using my bike during the weekend. The reason why is because I do swimming at a location that requires transportation like my bike . I don't do the regular pushups and situps. I decided what better way to work out than to do things to work out the entire body. Dancing and swimming is better for me.

While slowing down, I have been given a few recommendations. I have been told by one person to eat bread with every meal that I consume for the next couple of days. Another one recommended to me is corn bread. A friend of hers recently lost 20 pounds and my name came into the conversation when I was talking to her about my weight gain. The guy really suggested that I eat cornbread.

Here are a few of the meals that I've eaten in the last couple of days. Spaghetti and meatballs, fried chicken, french toast, pancakes, smoked sausages, biscuits, baked chicken, and donuts. I would've just given you my daily schedule, but I considered it a waste of time. All you need to know is that I am stuffing my face every single day. I am including all three important meals with snacks on the side.

I have done nothing workout related except for my weekend swimming lessons. The first week and a half is going to be nothing but stuffing myself and then the final week and a half will be working out while still eating on the side.

I'm going to barber today. I haven't had a haircut in almost a month. Whenever I am working on a project I give my all to it and don't think about anything else. One of those things just happens to be my hair. I am close to looking like a Sasquatch with all of this hair growing in all directions. Once I get to the barbershop there will be a weight scale, which I am going to use. It will be the first time that I will check and see how much do I truly weight.

Wish me luck everyone. This challenge is not easy.
