Treadmill – Your Fat Burner

Treadmill

Treadmill 2I was tired of trying almost every possible way to reduce my weight which was around 97Kgs and it is a lot for a 23 year old. My goal was to reduce 35kgs in next 6 months and that’s when my friend came up with a suggestion to try using a Treadmill. After all the fat jokes and insults by people around me I had to step on the treadmill one fine day, which turned out to be quite useful after all. It was an hour’s routine every morning and a 45 minutes in the evening for the past 6 months. It was really painful in the beginning which was overcome by the happiness when I saw gradual decrease in my weight every month. This gave me the energy to go on for the whole 6 months and I have managed to burn out 26 Kgs, which was really not my goal but way better that staying at 97Kgs. The best part is, the Treadmill didn’t really take much of my personal or business hours all these days.
