Me Happy, Me Lose Weight =)

By HappySkinnyGirl

So far this year I’ve lost 0.8kg/1.8lbs. I’m seeing a new low, 70.3kg/155lbs! =) I’ve come so far in term of internal struggle and trying to feel happy about my life. Last year I started out really frustrated and without any directions.

Today, I’m happier and don’t struggle to lose weight as much as I used to. I’ve learned to be less obsessed with food. If I did follow a diet, that would be an impossible mission. I handle the cravings quite well but still need to be better at eating food in moderations. I’ve learned to enjoy life, doing things I want to do TODAY. No more putting things off.

This week I didn’t exercise much because I wasn’t feeling well. But it’s alright because 80% of result will come from healthy eating and eating in moderations – for now. If I eat crappy most of the time, no matter how much I exercise I’ll not lose weight.

Weight loss is about achieving balances in your life by making wise choices and small changes. It’s not about will power or disciplines which I used to believe. I know I’ve said some of the things before but it doesn’t hurt to hear it again, right? =)

    This is exactly what I have been trying to do myself. It sounds to me like you have already come a long way and I can feel your excitement in your words ^_^

    Yet another good read!

    Glad to see you are successful. Developing new eating habits can be difficult but it’s worth it.

    Well said! I’m also much more patient this year than last! It’s about the doing, more than the result.

    Congrats on the new low on the scale!
