I just noticed LYN got this forum section, so i gonna share my progress of weight loss journey just using Ring Fit Adventure and diet.
However I already started 75 days from the day i started my weight loss routine, so i just list down progress from the first day until today below, and will update my next progress until i achieve my target...
- 37 years old and 180cm
- as of 3/10/2020, I was 106.5kg
- previously i was an active runner, joined few HMs and hiked few bukits around KV
Add-on: my first weight loss journey (2015)
- jogging 3 times a week, walk daily minimum 10k steps
- did daily calorie counting and log in MyFitnessPals
- from 88kg to 73kg in 3 months
Then after i met my gf and married to her on 2018, my weight gradually increasing until last year reached 100kg, and up to October 2020 my weight reached 106kg.
I got no time and no motivation to go out to gym or go jogging at parks as last time, and now CMCO is another reason to hold me from exercising outside.
My health starts deteriorating, always getting headache, hard to sleep, having acid refluxes and sometimes vomit easily.
Since then, i decided to gain back my fitness lifestyle, so i purchased Nintendo Ring Fit Adventure(RFA), to motivate myself to exercise.
Bought it on 3/10/2020, and start working out daily for at least 2 hours per session.
Until today 18/12/2020 together with diet calorie control daily, I can say it progressed well!
My weight goal target is gonna be 80kg, from 106.5 kg so it gonna be 26 kg loss to reach my goal.
About Nintendo's Ring Fit Adventure(RFA)
Ring Fit Adventure is an exercising action role-playing game developed and published by Nintendo for the Nintendo Switch. The game comes with two physical components: the Ring-Con, a Pilates ring that the user holds and one Joy-Con slots into, and a Leg Strap, a piece of fabric affixed to the user's leg that holds the other Joy-Con. Wiki Trailer.
Basically, in the game itself have Adventure RPG mode and general workout mode, so I normally start with general workout mode first for warming up, then I continue playing the adventure mode.
