I've been off the site for at least 7 months. After losing 4 stones and feeling fabulous I lost control following some major changes at work and have put on 10lbs (sugar - grrrrr!). But thankfully I start tomorrow with new determination and knowledge that in a few days time I'm going to be rid of the headaches, heartburn, water retention and bloated feelings. I'm really looking forward to it.
I've been having a mooch in the members area and seen some
Things are going pretty rough for me lately.
Having someone who does not appreciate me and taking me for granted most of the time... I cried a lot and am not done crying. But instead of going to the nearest fast food and order myself a big meal, instead of opening up the fridge and start to binge..
I held myself back. There's this small voice whispering to me "no sugar...no carbs...no more comfort food" And I'm like, "what the hell Sarah, stop!"
I have always admired people who can do sports because they enjoy it and I have done running, zumba, kick-boxing and aerobics in the past not to mention, swimming! But as I grow bigger (sideways) I find it difficult to be as fit as I was before.
So it's all mentally but in physical sense, I am not that strong enough to undergo a 30-60min workout of intense exercise.
I do have asthma so that even bogs me down.
I decided to take on a "slow and steady approach"
At about 9.47am, I weighed myself and the scale shows 80.5kg. That's a difference of 1 kilo from my previous weigh-in; 81.5kg.
It might be water loss but I am doing this Phase 1 again and I know the results will be better than ever!
Update: With the help of dear Mama, I got to know that I lost 2cm off my waistline. Wow. That's feel good. (I usually hesitate to do so as I'm an apple body)

I ended my 5th day of Phase 1 with mixed feelings.
After much contemplation, I have decided to do the Phase 1 again. With a stricter rule of 3 main meals and only snacking when I am genuinely hungry.
There are times that I tend to prepare a bigger portion during cooking and when I sat down for my meal, I could not finish the whole of it. It was simply a have to.
I also need to ensure that I drink 2 litres of water daily and have enough sleep. Keep my
