Sooooo, I have not written in a very long time. And that is because I have been eating.
Last Nov/December I had started on a re-freshed weight loss effort. My motivation was my friend’s wedding where I was going to be a bridesmaid. I deliberately sent measurements that were an inch less than the real ones to force me to lose weight. If i was fat, I woudn’t be able to fit into the dress.
I did very well by going down from 91.2kg to 87.2kg.
BUT! I ended up not being able to go for the wedding because of finances.
PLUS, December happened.
So, I have re-gained it all… well, I was 90.2 this morning 😦
I would like to lose 10kgs by 30 April 2017 – 3.5 months from now
Part 1: I want to drop 5kgs first. This needs to happen by 15 February – About a month from now. This equates to about 1kg per week. And I believe it is possible as I have done it before.
Part 2: After the first 5kg is done, I will work towards the other 5kgs. I know it will be harder, that’s why I am giving myself more time to get rid of it.
I am hoping that by 30 April, I would have adopted healthier eating habits, smaller portions and more exercise.
The 2017 Plan
To fight the fat, I am going to eat less. My new job makes that very possible. I am too far from any shops and so, can’t just go out the door for a quick snack.
Whatever I bring from home is all I can eat.
I don’t eat breakfast anymore. I only have lunch at 12pm. Usually I will have 3 or 4 slices of bread with tomato, ham and slice of cheese. And then not eat anything until I have supper at home.
Yesterday I was bad and spent waaaay too much money on a piece of carrot cake from the coffee shop downstairs. That won’t be happening again because it is a waste of money and I ALWAYS feel bad when I eat like that.
One thing I need to learn how to do is to portion control dinner. Because my last meal was at lunch, I find myself eating way too much at supper.
Last week I did ok with regards to this “diet”, but had potato chips and other stuff. The weekend I binged quite a bit – IT WAS BAD. Wolfing down 8 KFC wings + a big packet of potato chips is not normal.
I want to start running.. even if it is for 10 minutes. That’s where the challenge is going to be.
