Four Down, Nineteen To Go

After a month of monitoring my food intake (and my weight on the scales, too), I am happy to announce that I lost 4 lbs. It’s not impressive I know, but it’s not bad, either. By doing this mini weight loss challenge, I have found out that I can be serious when it comes to testing my determination and discipline to achieve a certain goal.

Now that I’ve lost 4 lbs. already, I still have 19 more to shed off to achieve my ideal weight of 115 lbs. I know it’s not gonna come easy, but I’m giving it a try. Little achievements like this are a big deal to me. It gives me a warm, fuzzy feeling. It makes me real happy. It’s akin to when you join in a golf tournament and end up winning golf trophies because you played great. Come to think of it, the rule of that sport can be applied to weight loss, too. The lesser tries you make to get that perfect shot, the better. The lesser time it takes for you to lose weight, the earlier you can face the world in a better shape and with a brighter perspective.

Updates on My 2011 Weight Loss Journey

I started 2011 feeling heavy at 138 lbs. I used to be a 120, you know. One month has passed and along with it came a happy development – I lost 6 lbs! That makes me a 132-pounder, 27 year-old gal. This is good news and makes me want to work harder to reach my ideal weight of 115 which is where one of my 2011 goals revolves around.

I have never planned to be skinny just to be called skinny, if you know what I mean. I think I have already come to terms with my own body. I know that being thin doesn’t go well with my overall appearance. My eyes would bulge out and I’d lose my boobs and my butt. I can only go as far as 115 that’s why it has become my ideal weight ever since.

Goal No. 1: Lose Weight!

I want to start the year right. Topping my 2011 goals is losing weight. Unlike others who have only gained a few pounds after the holidays, I welcomed 2011 with 20 unwanted pounds. Yes, not just one or four but 20. Imagine that. I’m bordering on obesity and I’m very alarmed. I know in my heart I have to do something about it.

the chubby me, not a good sight methinks

I have started dieting last week. So far, I have already lost four pounds. Some may think it’s fast but fortunately for me, I have this way of losing weight that only my body can understand. Hopefully, I could go back to my ideal weight of 115 in the coming weeks.
