Im back for 2013!!!

Wow!!!  I decided to resume my blog.  I reviewed my last blog and it was dated August 2011,.  Its been almost 2 years when I first decided to do a blog to help me keep a journal in my endeavor to lose weight. Needless to say I was unsuccessful in losing weight at that time (laughs). Last July 2012, I had the shock of my life when I saw a picture of me in my friends party…Boy, I looked so fat!!!  I right away felt so bad and helpless.  I really wanted to lose weight but i couldn’t get myself to do it.  I always end up gobbling  up food when I saw them.  But I knew I had to do something about it ASAP!!!!  I needed to have some inspiration and a lot of encouragement.  I would feel disgusted dressing up and end up changing so many times because my clothes were too tight (ugggh)  I had zero self-esteem. At that time an angel was sent to me, My friend who now lives in Singapore came for a visit.  She has been eating healthy and going to the gym and she looked fabulous.  I told her about my dilemma in losing weight and she gave me a lot of tips and encouraged me to change my eating habits.  She said she would support me all the way.  I felt so inspired by our conversation and decided to do it. I started to go on a NO CARB diet.  The next day, i went to the grocery and bought food i needed for the diet.  I packed my own food for work and if I would eat out, I would choose the healthier choice in the menu.  After 2 weeks, I felt a little lighter and my tight clothes would fit.  This inspired me more and I continued with the diet.  I wanted to lose more weight because I had a planned trip to Hong Kong with my friends.  1 week before going to Hong Kong, I tried the General Motors Diet.  It guaranteed that I would lose 7 to 10 lbs after the 7 day diet plan.  And….. YES!!!  I did lose about 7 lbs and was ready to go on the trip.  I bought clothes to use while in Hong Kong (for nice photo options, hehehehe). My friends started to compliment me on my weight loss and it really felt good and gave me my self-esteem back and it inspired me to continue the diet and eat healthy.  So here I am now,  6 months after…I lost 10 to 12 lbs and feel great.  I did it…but of course i cheated a bit last Christmas season ( who can actually stay on a diet on Christmas???).  I am now back to my General Motors Diet, day 3 today and I am surviving, I honestly thought I would have a hard time after the Christmas season but…Its all about discipline and determination.  If you put your heart into it, you will definitely be able to do it!  Not just with diets but with all aspects in life, If we put our heart into it, we can do it.

Well, Heres a picture of me with my family last December 23, 2012. (im the one on the left with the violet blouse with sequins on it)

2 weeks Battle with the Bulge

I never realized its been two weeks since I started this blog.  I know I said I was going to try to write everyday but with work and other things in life made it a bit difficult.  Anyway, here I am after two weeks….I’m still at it watching what I eat and try to exercise and walk more.  I am not following a certain diet, Im just watching what I eat and keeping off from sweets and just trying to eat healthy.  So, I’ve noticed that some of my clothes fit better, not like I feel so suffocated in them, like how I used to feel.  I guess im doing pretty good but a bit slow…Slow but sure.  I hope and pray that I can keep up with this.  I miss wearing clothes that I want without feeling paranoid that I look like im going to pop out from it.  I also felt encouraged because of someone who made a comment on my blog who is also going through the same thing like me, Thank you to frangipane1, We can do it!!!  

The past 2 weeks has been a bit like a roller coaster ride for me not only because of me trying to lose weight but many other personal things.  I’ve been pressured with work since I am in SALES, although my group has sales but the competition is what im pressured about.  But I have hope that things will work out.  Things have a way of working out, somehow.  Another thing is the LIKE and LOVE part.  I recently met someone on-line and I really thought he was a really good guy or he seemed to be.  he made me feel special (or so I thought)  I made a go at it even if I was very skeptical about meeting people on-line.  I always guard myself from opening myself in that department but I felt that I should take the risk and so I did.  At first I wasnt sure how I really felt about the whole thing but I went along with it and found myself being fond of him and to be honest I thought he could be the one.  I took the risk!  Guess what?????!!!  He got busy with work  and all those excuses and he didn’t send messages anymore.  I tried to give him the benefit of the doubt and I sent him a few messages, He would answer saying the same reasons and then he stopped replying to my messages.  I felt bad and quite affected by it but as they say LIFE GOES ON and so shall mine.  At least when I look back, I can say I took the risk and tried to reach out but I can only do as much and I can say to myself, I tried and wont have “What ifs???”

There is so much more to life, I believe and as my friend once said to me….”There is always someone out there for you.”  I will still believe in LIFE and LOVE.  Meantime, while I havent found the right one yet I shall try to enjoy each moment I have here, Learn from my mistakes and try to be a better person not for just someone else but for the people who believe in me and truly love me for who I am.

Battle With The Bulge!!!

I think every women or most of them have this problem, and I am one of them. This is one of the reason why I decided to do a blog. I have been having a hard time loosing weight simply because I love to eat. I am a size 12 now when before I could fit in a size 8.

I decided to write down hopefully each day about my battle in loosing weight. I have decided to go on a diet and exercise regularly again to be able to lose weight. I have been active most of my life in terms of sports or exercising but lately I kinda hit a slump on this. There were days that i would say to myself, im really going to do this and that but I end up not doing anything about it. What hit me was when I saw a picture of myself with big cheeks and boy, did my arms look so big from before! that’s when i decided I have to move my butt and go do something about it! I bought exercise dvds and i am trying to cut down on food now. So far so good!

I started exercising by following the samba dvd I bought and am now watching what I eat. I shall try to post here everyday of my journey in loosing weight ( I hope I make it ) =)

What a prayer

Now, isn’t that funny?

Lets see what tomorrow brings =D
