Tempting offers.......

Summer is almost here and so are the parties! How can u continue with a diet at a party full of yummy food? Went to a friend's place last week and she forced me ( literally) to eat rice and cake. I told her that I'm not going to see her for the next 6 months! Now, she's not so bad, this friend.It's just that I missed her bday and she wasn't very happy with me. This is just one example. I have barbecues, weddings, naming ceremonies e.t.c Lord, help me!!

Slowing down?

Has it been a month already? Time does fly by quickly, doesn't it? My diet is still on though I think I'm slowing down a bit. I'm currently at 96kg so I've only lost 4kg this month unlike March when I lost 7kg. Still, the most important factor is that I'm still losing weight. I have lost 11 kg!! I can't remember the last time I felt so good about myself. I'm not bloated anymore, my skin feels softer and clearer( my hubby is ecstatic!) and even my personality has changed. I'm now more outgoing and lively. All in all, not bad for 2 months dieting!

A stone and counting........

Finally, I'm at 100kg! An achievement, I must say considering the fact that it hasn't been easy but it's been worth it. Tried on some old clothes the other day and they felt great! These are clothes I haven't worn in 2 yrs but kept hoping this day might come. A whole stone and 2 pounds!!. I keep finding every excuse to check myself in the mirror! See u next week.

I feel like dancing...

I thot this would be the one of the easiest decisions I ever made but now, I'm not so sure. Googled dancing classes in London the other day and so many popped up, my eyes hurt! Should I go for tango or belly dancing? I like country western but think of my friends' jaws dropping when I do the head flip aka jamaican style! On the other hand, my hubby would worship me if I learn pole dancing. Hmm, decisions, decisions....... What do u think?

Only 3 pounds?

This is the end of the 2nd week and I only lost 3 pounds. My counsellor said it's normal since it was my time of the month and all that but still, I was disappointed. I thot I had lost more. However, it has made me more determined than ever.Next week, I aim to lose 5 pounds and I'm going to do it no matter what. On a positive note, I've lost a total of 10 pounds and I feel great. It makes it all worthwhile. See u next week.

It's coming off!!

It's been a week since I started my Cambridge diet and so far, I've lost 7 pounds!!!! Yay!!! It's not been easy though, I tell you. I've had to give up carbs completely and that has to be the hardest thing I've ever done. I can't eat between meals and eating after 8pm is off limits. On the plus side however( pun not intended!) , my skin is better and I'm not bloated anymore. In addition to the shakes n soups, I can have veg and chicken in the evening. I don't want to speak too soon but the diet is quite ok; I don't really feel hungry during the day and the veg/chicken meal in the evening is really filling. I do appreciate the comment left the other day on my blog about taking things slowly but the good thing about this Cambridge diet is you take it a week at a time. You have a counselor to guide you through( mine is a doctor) and you can weigh yourself every week and see how you are doing.Well, I can't wait till Saturday to see how much I've lost this 2nd week. Can u? Bye!!

Keep it up, Jade

I couldn't stand Jade Goody.I mean, honestly she represented everything I detested; loud, chavy, brash, attention seeking, fame loving e.t.c. However, when I heard the news about her cervical cancer, I instantly felt sorry for her. She has two lovely little boys and my heart went out instantly to them. I became her No 1 fan. Then, I heard her cancer has spread and it is terminal and she has only months to live. I was inconsolable; no woman deserved to die that way. My tears stopped immediately though when she said she was going to have it all on camera, even her dying day! This was too much. Is she really that fame hungry that she would go to any length to be in the public eye?! Then I realised this might be a publicity hungry woman hell bent on soaking up the fame for as long as she could but it has been reported that the no of women seeking cervical cancer screenings has gone up by 20%. Also, her children would have all the priviledges that she didn't have growing up, financially or otherwise all made possible by her being in the public eye. So I say, good on you Jade. I'm still ur No 1 fan.

Weighty issues

I currently weigh 107kg and I need help! Yes, yes, yes, welcome to my blog and all that but seriously, I'm at my wits' end, people. What is about weight that is so easy to gain and so hard to lose? Sure I've lost weight before, about 30 pounds infact but I gained it all back and then some! Now, I wish I hadn't eaten all those delicious treats.Hmmmmmmm... well, those days are now and truly over.It's time to get moving! So I need tips and lots of them. I know about portion control, less or no carbs at all,10,000 steps every day e.t.c. However, since I plan to make this a lifetime commitment this time, I need to start doing something I enjoy that makes losing weight and keeping it off easier.Hence, I intend to take dancing lessons. I simply adore dancing and knowing it's helping me to maintain my figure is a good thing. Another thing is squash which I have never played b4 but somehow, I know it would be a breeze for me( hopefully!) And yes, swimming which I heard is very good for weight loss. So there, I have 6 months to lose about 30kg and I plan to take u along with me.All the pain, tears, sweat, breakdowns, murderous rages, hunger pangs, everything. Oh boy, r we in for a ride!!!
