How I Lose Weight

Losing weight is a choice, getting fat is optional. That has been my mantra when it comes to managing my weight. Recently, I have come to realize that getting to your ideal weight is a lifetime process. I gain weight and I lose it and the cycle goes on and on.

There is no such thing as the perfect diet or exercise plan. It’s our lifestyle and eating habits that determine how small or big we would be. How I lose weight is no secret. I just decrease my calorie intake and increase my physical activity. I don’t deprive myself of any food (though there was a time I gave up on pork and soda!), I just try to eat everything in moderation.

Disciplined Eating

Once again, I have started to get serious about my weight loss. I tried disciplined eating last weekend and it seemed to have worked. I lost a pound in two days. I plan to continue this and hope to see greater results this week.

What is disciplined eating? I define it as watching what I eat and adhering to a diet plan strictly. The process entails a lot of discipline and hence, the name. I dunno but I just woke up one day and told myself that I need to get back into shape. I want to go back to the body that I’m comfortable with.

Do You Watch What You Eat?

The weighing scale doesn’t lie. I have really gained a lot of weight in the past three months. From 128, I now weigh 138. That’s ten big pounds! My clothes don’t fit me anymore and I have a hard time controlling what goes into my mouth. Do you watch what you eat? Is it really effective to do so especially if you want to lose weight?

I just made a food monitoring sheet of sorts. I want to document what I eat and hope that through this method, I could stop gaining more unwanted pounds. It’s not that I hate my body, it’s just that I don’t think overeating is healthy. Also, I want to lose weight naturally. If I don’t see any improvements in my weight, then I might just get the best fat burners to help me eliminate all my excesses.

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.
