Weighing In: Week 1 For The Food Diarist

Tuesday, March 22, 2011
This past weekend (Okay,  it would be the last weekend before this past by the time I publish this post), my hubby broke the most cardinal of all sins. He commented on my ever-expanding hips. This is of course, a slight jab at the bigger picture, which is my weight gain.

Now to tell you the truth, I don't think that I look all that bad although some kind of insecurity is already starting to creep in. I've been slowly gaining weight through the years despite all my efforts which is leading to my depression and frustration. And my husband's words did not help any to drive this insecurity away.

So again this week, I start with my watch.

I am watching what I eat. Again. I am feeling hungry. All the time. Again. Ugh!

But hey, I thought I'll just start writing up what I've been taking in so as not to forget if I've botched up somewhere to deserve this double layer of thighs. Sorta like a tell-all post. Naughty, naughty.

Or it could get kinda boring with just a list of foods and workouts. Blah, blah, blah. And then a final bleh!

On the Sunday before I started this food diary, I weighed myself and noted that I am 9kgs over my "what I'd like to be" weight.

By the way, I weighed in on Sunday morning and found that I lost 1.3kgs :-) Don't think it's for eternity though. As it is in the morning and I usually pick up a few kilos during midday. But it's still certainly something. 7.7kgs more to go.
