Five years ago, I had to work overtime every night because of my busy work.
So in just three months,my weight rose sharply,it weighted 10Kg。
After winter, I would change into thin clothes . but because of the sudden weight of 10kg, so many clothes couldn't be put on。
So I decided to lose weight and skip rope for 30 minutes every night.
At first, the weight dropped sharply,it gave me a lot of confidence.
But two months later, It entered the bottleneck period of weight loss, my weight lost slowly and no longer droped.
But I didn't give up. I kept on exercising.
After a year's hard work, my weight was back to the beginning.
There are many ways to lose weight, but exercising is more fit for me and it makes me healthier.
