KPO Needs to Lose Weight

Not everything that goes up is good especially when it comes to one's weight. KPO has been putting on more and more weight ever since he started working. He hardly exercises apart from the "force" IPT sessions which he surrenders signs up for because he cannot pass his IPPT. lol.

Let's take a look at my fundamentals:
Weight - 83.5 kg
Height - 173 cm

At one glance, we know this is a lousy stock unhealthy man, not sure why CZM continues to invest in KPO. To make sense of the above numbers, we shall make use of BMI (Body Mass Index). The formula is to divide the weight in kilograms (kg) by the height in metres (m) then divide the answer by the height (m) again to get the BMI.

You can find out more here - Health Promotion Board: What is a Healthy Weight? I quote "BMI measures the relationship between your weight and height to measure the amount of body fat you have. The higher your BMI, the higher the amount of fat in your body." My mind is as lazy as my body so I will be using our Health Promotion Board BMI Calculator instead of calculating it manually. My result is as follows:

GG la. I am so far away from the standard BMI of 20. According to the above formula, to obtain a BMI of 20, my weight has to be around 60 kg. Siao! When I was in BMT also not so light. lol. Let me set a more achievable target - lose 10% of my current weight to 75 kg first. What's my game plan? Reduce/avoid carbohydrate (low carbs diet in Singapore) and exercise more.

CZM and I came up with a plan/punishment to ensure that we will exercise at least 4 times a week. Whoever that did not hit the target will have to contribute additional $5 per day to our KPO Fund. Example if I did not exercise for a particular week, I will have to top up $20!

The reason why I need to lose weight is that CZM and I will be getting married next year and we have around a year remaining to prepare for it! CZM says she does not want to take photo shoot if we continue to be fat (her BMI is 20.8 but she is claiming that she is fat -.-) Anyway, we all know that it would not end well so I better start to lose some weight.

Going forward, I will also be updating my weight at the end of my post as follows:

Date: 2017-09-03
Weight: 83.5 kg
BMI: 27.9


  1. Hi KPO,

    I just realized that my height and weight are roughly similar to you. Argh! I need to lose weight too. :(

    1. Hi Unintelligent Nerd,

      Hahaha. It is never too late to start ;)

  2. Hi KPO,

    There's a Chinese sayings - 肥是一種福 :)

    1. Hi sleepdevil,

      I am sure you wouldn't want this kind of 福 too. Hahaha.
