I’ve been sick yesterday and today. Still surprised I managed to eat that much yesterday. I have to remember to eat when I’m hungry and stop when I’m full.

Anyway, sorry this is such a boring blog. Then again, this is mostly just for me to keep track of where I’m at. Sometimes we think we are eating very healthy when the truth is that we’re not. Or we think we haven’t eaten that much—but in the scope of things, we’ve eaten a lot.

I should really start working on my homework and reports.

The purpose of this blog

This is my new blog about weight loss. I remember weighing about 155 pounds and looking very nice. It took a lot of time and work to get to that weight–it was my lowest weight ever–but I was relatively healthy, radiant and pretty. People still sometimes ask me what happened since then, and it is frustrating to have to revisit the time that’s spanned between then and now.

This blog exists to help me “fix” myself. I’m not broken per se, but I can be better. I have most of my life on track but my weight, and my self-confidence is taking a big hit because of this. I feel like a whale that has to be hidden, and I don’t want to be that. I want to look as radiant as I feel.

It is time to get my body on track. My hormones are completely out of whack and my body has taken a rough beating these past few years. I haven’t been treating my body well at all. If I want to have any type of a future, I will have to respect my body and my health. I’m way too hairy on my face and neck and not hairy enough on my scalp. I haven’t had a period in years. This is not normal for a 26 year old female. I will probably have trouble conceiving in the future because of my carelessness. That will stop now.

Here’s the skeleton:

  • Who: ME
  • What: 15 pounds
  • Where: In my head
  • When: Now
  • Why: normalize my body, have children in the future, look and feel beautiful, impress my parents, make F even more grateful of me, enamor his parents, et cetera et cetera et cetera.
  • How: cut down all forms of carbohydrates including roti, rice and bread. Cut down on salt and sodium. Eat like a king at breakfast, a queen at lunch and a peasant at dinner. Make 75% of my dinner vegetables. Supplement with daily vitamins (VEGA Maca, Women’s one-daily, Vitex Femaprin).
    • Dinner is my most difficult time. When I’m feeling hungry after five p.m., drink half a scoop of RAW Fit first, then see how I feel. Prepare a standard salad (lettuce, tomato, onion, cilantro and anything else) every day between 5 and 6 pm.

 

For my graduation on May 10th, I will weigh 160 pounds. Today, March 3, 2014, I weigh 176 pounds. Here’s how it will work out (iA!):

  • 1st goal: 3/15, 172 pounds
  • 2nd goal: 3/22, 170 pounds. Before Asia, I have to hit 170 pounds.
  • 3rd goal: 4/27, 160 pounds.  Post Asia weigh-in. I must remain highly active in Asia and remember that food is not my only guiding light. Eat to live, don’t live to eat.
  • Ultimate goal: 5/10, 160 pounds
