hello, i am kapil gupta , age 28 and i am from Delhi , India, i have been a big guy
since birth and it never created much problem for me since i didn't faced much of problem regarding my weight and hardly faced any comment regarding to it but as i grew up i started feeling the pain not by other people by my own body
started to tell me that u r not fit and can not match the speed of others, i did tried to lose my weight on occasions , being an Indian i would say that thr was a moment when i got so stressed because of weight that i even asked the so call pundits ( priest ) that would i ever get success in losing weight and they said no , QUITE FUNNY but enough to break my heart, i did tried my best to lose my weight and two occasions and i really lost 22 kg in first go and i got it back pretty soon coz i got hospitalized and again in my second try i lost some 18 kg and again got hospitalized , so my life is like that , never had much of problems coz GOD helped me every time i was in trouble , now the real deal , it started some 7 months ago when i started feeling that i dont have cloths left in my wardrobe because i have crossed all the limits and i am bigger thn ever and during a family get together one of my cousin brother made a comment on me that what r u doing , why i am getting so fat like this and for the first time it struck my mind and i started to take it seriously , in April i started my mission of losing my weight
and started facing what i am now, a lazy guy with 0 determination, it was really hard at first to stay away from food, like chocolates, pizzas, calorie food in quantity , so i started searching internet THANKS TO GOOGLE AND SPARKPEOPLE.COM, i found two electronic friends, i found so many topics about food intake, exercise, how to motivate myself on google and sparkpeople.com helped me in keeping my weight loss records , it feels great when we get friends either real or electronic, so i started in April with 2.5 km walk every night and started watching my weight also , (NOW I AM DOING 8 KM WALK IN MORNING AND 5 KM IN EVENING ) bought a new weighing machine
, new shoes ( because i was just too excited ) and few more stuff , with help oF blogs , websites, i started to gather lot of knowledge about fruits and thr calories, food and thr calories, about how much do i burn and how much do i need to eat everyday and it helped a lot , its been close to 6 months now and i have lost around 18 kg and now i can say that i can wear all the cloths in my wardrobe now and i even bought some new ones which r smaller in size and again it feels great, i was on 125 in April and now i am on 107 and it is a great jump for me, i am still very determined to get my goal before march 2013 and i am giving my efforts
SO YES MY BLOG TITLE NEVER KNEW THAT AMOUNT OF DETERMINATION I HAVE is absolutely correct for me coz i was really lazy but when i found my determination and goal i started giving my everything in it , so yes i am not that lazy and i can give myself the compliment that KAPIL U CAN DO ANYTHING IF U WANT , LOVE IT
( my first ever blog entry so dont mind my grammer mistakes people )

Firstly I must tell you that it was a very impressive blog.
Very honestly you have took out your heart through words.
Though you have sum up your success story in few lines...but I do understand the pain, struggle, hard work that was there behind this achievement.
Nothing in this world is as strong as self realisation and self motivation. It takes you to another level and helps you to work hard and never give up till you achieve your goal. You are not doing it to prove somebody else but for your own sake, which is very good.
Most importantly instead of getting disheartened from others comments...you have taken it positively and channelized your energy in right direction.
It is very nice of you to take out the time to share your journey so far....this will definitely give hope, strength and a little push to keep working hard for other people who thinks that they can't break the ice.
I myself have tried and failed so many times...but still hoping for the best to happen. After knowing you, I am confident that yes, I can do it. A very BIG thanks to you. :-)
One small suggestion...as you have learned so much about the diet and all other things necessary for this issue through your research...then do share it with others through the blogs...which will help others and you as well in some way or the other.
With every single person you have, are and will motivate through your story, will definitely bless you with their best wishes for you, which will encourage you to work even harder and spread the positivity and hope amongst all.
My best wishes are always with you and I won't be surprise to receive a post coming from you on achieving your goal in set time frame very soon.
All the best.
