I was successful two years ago, I know that I can do it again this year. I am talking about losing weight. 2012 was a great year for me and I am grateful. However, there was one major thing that I took for granted and that’s my weight. Two years ago, I was able to maintain my ideal weight but since we’ve moved and I was promoted as the house’s cook, I gained a good amount of weight.
Today, I’ve come to realize that I gained even more pounds. The jeans and shirts that I wear on normal days now feel tight! And I look like a muffin when I sit down. I can either buy new clothes or lose weight. But I though of a better option – lose weight and reward myself with new wardrobe. How’s that?
I am on my second day of working out for 30 minutes daily. I don’t’ want to stick to any diet but I am starting to control my eating. Two years ago, I removed rice from my diet and it significantly helped me gain my ideal weight. However, the diet is not something that I could sustain as I went back to eating rice last year.
I plan to still eat what I like but in suggested/ controlled proportions. I am thinking of counting calories. As a foodie, I will try to prove that I can lose without feeling deprived and unhappy and that is by exercising daily and being mindful of what I eat.
So wish me luck! It’s going to be a long way but I believe in baby steps.
