The No Rice Diet

I am on my 14th day of no rice diet. Well, I have not lost much weight since I am not really depriving myself of food and carbohydrates. I just eliminated RICE.

Tomorrow, I plan to eliminate more carbs as I think I really need to take this diet to the next level. That is after lazing around for four days.

Successful Day 1

It is another day for me. I woke up, I went to the dressing room—yes, I call it dressing room because it is not actually a walk in closet. It was our old bedroom/now storage area/dressing area. There was my weighing scale. Would you believe that I weigh every day? Anyways, I got my heaviest at 84.5kilos. I am worried and at the same time decided that I must get serious with my dieting… You may say…again? Yes, if you would search this blog, there are many posts about my first day of dieting and epic fail, as my son would put it.

So, what happened to my first day of diet—February 17, 2015?

Starting weight: 84.5 kilograms.

I could say that I have half success. I ate all throughout the day. I tried following the 3 day diet and ate half slice wheat bread with two teaspoons of peanut butter for breakfast. I had black coffee too.   That’s the only thing I was able to follow.

It is Chinese New year on Feb. 19 and our Chinese co-worker brought fried tikoy! I indulged! I got hungry thus I ate half of  my tuna sandwich. That was my lunch plus a glass of green tea.

In the afternoon, my friend who I have not seen for a long time dropped by so we had a late afternoon snack of Potato Fries, Fried Siomai, Fried Crablets and Boiled egg for me. I also ate the remaining half of my tuna sandwich.

What’s for dinner?  I was able to reach home by 9:30PM. There was Chicken Afritada and White Rice. I was so tempted. I opened the fridge and drank a glass of cold water and decided to go to bed.

So, I would say that it could pass as a successful Day 1 for me. I did not eat rice. It’s the start.

I woke up today and my weight was 83.9. I lost 0.5 kilo. Not bad? Let us see what will happen today. I need all the luck and all the determination in the world.

Easy to gain but hard to lose

I have been eating almost 5K calories daily! Yes, it is possible. As long as you get consciuos, you will find out that you can. Well, the last that I counted as of yesterda is yes, almost 5K. Today, I stopped counting. Well, I ate so many sweets thus on that, I think I already consumed almost 5K calories. It is true that it is easy to gain the pounds back but very hard to lose.

Enjoyed breakfast?

Here am I so early in the office. I am tempted to ask my immediate lead if she will approve if I will have early sked again today. Oh, but I think I am not that productive in an 8-5 sked. Well, you know, still sleepy. So, I just enjoyed my breakfast: coffee, 1 piece whaet bread with peanut butter… Well, I could not really convince myself in saying that I am enjoying this breakfast. Hahahaha! Yes, I am on a diet again. Imagine that, huh!

The challenge begins today

Is it the diet or the chocolates? I am pushing this popular diet but making some variations. I still eat rice and to my heart’s content dinner time. I even have chips! Well, after two days, I still lose 0.4 kg! Well, not bad, huh! I could not say that it is only water content since I drink 3 liters per day even! So, the popular diet must be effective. I guess, I should get serious with it and really follow everything to a T. Anyways, it will only be two months and come January, I think I will reach my goal already if the promise is true of 10kg per month. yes, yes, I know that it all depends on me. So be it! The challenge begins now! 😉

For real

It is Monday! It is already 10Am and I have not taken in anything yet. Well, yes, you can ask and declare, First Day Again? Yes, it is my first day again for dieting. I am very much tempted to eat already what is inside the fridge but I still have this control as of this time.

How much do I weigh right now? I have not stepped on the weighing scale yet. Maybe I weigh 180 pounds, the most. I am becoming depressed again as I already reached 162 pounds before. I was able to do that in three months or four. Now, I know I just have to do what I did before to reach that weight which is still very much heavy. I used to be 111 pounds way back 20 years ago. Well, yes, you cannot bring back the past, right?

So, will it be for real? My first day once again? I just have to focus on myself, I guess.

131 calories only?

Gosh! I think I will not use the pedometer anymore. It does not inspire me to do more exercise. I told myself, I will just starve myself to death. Hahaha! Well, I did zumba for 30 minutes and it only read 131 calories and around 271 steps. Imagine that! Too much effort for too little effect.

What do you think?
