Today earlier I tried one of those weighing scale that you need to pay to get your BMI.
The thing is I suspect it’s not actually giving you your actual weight, plus it’s scamming people of their money.
The equipment below it seems to utilise it, you need to step on it first, then place the coin into the slot, and it will does its thing.
But you miss any of those steps above, such as putting the coin first, it will swallow your money.
It’s a very dodgy machine, the instructions wasn’t clear, and there wasn’t even a refund if you wish to cancel to weigh yourself. There wasn’t a button, or knob to get your money back!
Each usage of this contraption cost 20 cents. Imagine each day it’s getting like 50 people using it, and maybe half of them are unsuspecting user, where they got duped. Over the long run, the owner of such machines are raking in the dough at our expense.
After I lost 20 cents to the machine, I managed to successfully weigh myself on the second try. It gave me a BMI of 27.42, which was extrapolated from my weight of 78.3 kilograms and a height of 1.69 metres (I don’t believe this also. I’m 1.71 to 1.72 metres!).
Like hello, I’m not in the 78 kilograms weight range. I’ve tried other multiple different weight scales these past few weeks, and all are indicating that I’m in the 79 kilograms weight range.
My suspicion is that by reducing the person actual weight by 1++ kilograms, it will output a more favorable BMI, thus making the person happier and content, which will then make him or her to recommend the weighing scale to their friends.
It’s a scam I tell ya. Even my other friends who tried the machine reported their weight wasn’t accurate too.
Well anyway enough of the useless machine. BMI is also not the ideal method to find one’s fitness and body fat assessment.
I’m content that I’m seeing slight progress in my plans to gain more mass. I had a new personal best for my weight, albeit by just 0.1 kilograms, I’ll take it. I’m now 79.5kg using the gym weighing scale. I can’t wait for the day that I tipped over 80kg.
I just need to eat more! Of course from observing my progress photos I now need to work on a few areas.
My abs is first. I’ve not been doing any abdominal exercises for the past 10 months since I stopped sprinting. Back then we did alot of core workouts, and I just let myself go all these while.
I learned, yes although I need to gain more weight, I would still need to work my middle region. Anyway from the photos, it’s not that bad. My abs muscle is still there, more or less. Just that it’s now covered by layers of fats for which I’ve been consuming these few months.
Next I would need to thicken my biceps, then lengthen my latissimus dorsi or back. I’m also planning to increase the inner and lower part of my chest, and get more muscle serration on my quads.
Of course, you can’t rush such stuff. It’s all in due time. I would think I’m not doing that bad after just 6-7 months at this. Get big or die trying.
