Weight Loss Matters in 2014

Saturday, January 18, 2014

This year, I was no longer afraid to admit that I'm at my heaviest so far. It was an eye opener: minor health issues are starting to show. Pants are tighter than ever. Climbing the stairs is starting to seem like a challenge on 'Survivor'. I decided to do something about it. My friend told me about these very affordable vouchers for Golds Gym. Call it an impulse purchase, I bought 2 vouchers hoping to get me started on this weight loss journey this year.

Another thing I tried recently is this food delivery service called Diet Diva. They prepare 1200-calorie per day meals at a more affordable price. (This is in comparison to that other obscenely expensive food delivery service.)  They deliver your food between 5 and 8 in the morning, just before I leave for work. I have to say, the experience was great so far!

I thought that bringing down my calorie intake drastically would f*ck up my body. I experience a terrible headache on my first day. On the second and third, I felt weak. When I finally got the hang of it, I felt really... normal.

One of the struggles I had with this diet is saying no to free food. There were a couple of times when my boss called for a lunch meeting so I didn't eat what Diet Diva prepared for me. However, I made sure my portions were really small because I still want to follow the 1200-calorie rule.

And I think I did well! On my first week, I lost 6 lbs! I am looking forward to losing more weight. My target is to lose as much as 50 lbs this year. Hey, it's only the first month of the year. That's pretty realistic!
