A netizen shared how he gained over 56kg in 2021 and can’t believe what he has done to himself.


Here is the story:

I gained a lot of weight over the course of 2021, 56.6kg actually, and I can’t believe what I’ve done to myself. Everything in my day to day is so much harder and I wish I could go back and tell myself then to not let this happen.

I’ve put on an entire 56.6kg in the past year during the pandemic from unhealthy, drastic changes to my lifestyle. I stopped exercising, let myself gorge on whatever I want, and I look like an entirely different person.

I never thought I’d let it get this far and I’m so daunted by the thought of getting back to my prior self now. To make matters worse, I’ve happened to gain most of this weight exclusively in my gut and chest, so I look absolutely ridiculous and out of proportion for my age.

My stomach is more than 60 inches around, last I looked, so it really does get in the way. Honestly especially at my age, since I’m only 27, more things than I’d expect have become really impacted.


I mean small things: I can’t really tie my shoes very easily, put on my socks, get out of breath going up a flight of stairs, buying clothes for my build & frame is so hard in men’s stuff, I actually knock stuff over with my belly since I’m not used to it at all.

To bigger things: problems with amusement park rides, fitting into booths going out to bars or restaurants with friends, airplane seatbelts, etc.

I’ve had endless people stare and snicker at me in public trying to navigate around in clothes that are too small on me since I have barely been able to keep up buying new sizes.

I’ve had to chat with my family and boss who have been endlessly harping on me about the weight gain. It’s just endless reminders of what I’ve done to myself. I so wish I could go back in time and change this and never get to this point.

It hasn’t been worth it at all and coming back to reality has made me realize that I need to do something about this ASAP.


Where did you begin? How did you get the motivation? What steps did you take and how have you maintained that self-control? Thank you in advance.

Editor’s note: You’re asking the wrong person bro, I look like Santa Claus myself. Maybe come back to the comments section in a bit and see what people have to offer.

Netizens’ comments

  • Your posting here asking for advice is already a huge step to taking back your lifestyle. I would honestly suggest making more of an effort to eat healthier by eliminating any unhealthy food in your house.
    Getting back into the gym would also make drastic changes not just to your body but to your mental health and let you work on your body from a healthy and stable mindset.
    When doing cardio, you’re better off to do 15 minutes of high intensity training with lots of sweat as opposed to an hour of moderate training with minimal sweat.
    Hope some of my knowledge can help you out. Keep grinding
