“Looks like you’ve gained weight,” said my dad. Ugh. I’ve been living in denial for the past few weeks, thinking that nobody notices that I’ve picked up a few pounds. Leave it to my dad to get my feet back on the ground. “Do you still swim?” he asked. I knew that he knew the answer already.
Pre-vacation weight: 46kgs
Post-vacation weight: 48.5kgs
So what am I blaming for that extra 2.5kgs? Beryani? Taco Bell? Stone Cold ice cream? Skipping swimming for two months?
One thing for sure, I’m blaming ME. Nobody asked me to eat so much while on vacation. Nobody asked me to become lazy just by the thought of getting into the pool. Nobody asked me to succumb into the seductive aroma of nasi lemak panas at night. It was all ME.
Ideal weight range: 45kgs to 47kgs
My diet plan kicked-off yesterday. Tomyam for lunch, served with lots of veges and very little rice. Guava for dinner. Scrubbed my bathroom for exercise (still lazy to go to the pool). The result?
Current weight: 47.5kgs
Still 0.5kg to get below the upper limit and 1.5kgs to regain my pre-vacation weight.
However, not bad for Day 1, dare I say. Threw away 1kg in 24 hours. Alhamdulillah, I’m blessed with the ability to shed weight pretty fast.
Target: 46kgs by Sunday
And I need to do that while having to attend a group lunch at Manhattan Fish Market today and treat Zaza a good meal for her birthday tomorrow (she treated me on my birthday, so I have to return the favor).
