|06:57 pm - Stupid weight|
And here we go with the biggest problem of living in a developed country. So, my current stats are (approximately):
My average should be about:
53kg - 60kg (118lbs - 132lbs)
That means I've gotta drop 15-20kg's. Grrrrrrr....why does food have to be so damn tasty. But you know, when I slouch in my chair and I can feel that roll of fat on my tummy...it pisses me off, not to mention when I'm pulling my pants on it's like fighting a battle of tug-of-war. This is like, my 200th try at this losing weight thing, but dammit one of these times it'll work.
I don't know much about losing weight (thats a great way to start this), but maybe trying a new/different approach to it would be best? x_X I don't know what you've tried before though... but maybe gradually bringing in some exercise each day or something?
Yeah tried that lol. I think the biggest problem with me is that whatever I try, I can't stick to it for long enough before I just go back to my old habits again -__-;;

Sometimes to accomplish our goals we have to make sacrifices.It doesn't need to be a big sacrifice (like starvation or extreme food restriction), but eating in moderation and a simple activity like walking could do wonders.For example, I take advantage of living in a big city like Montreal by finding every opportunity to walk (ie. in between breaks, challenging myself to break X # of steps/day, walking to the next (or subsequent) metro stations as opposed to the closest to McGill(if you ever go on the green line, you'll see how easy this is to do)). My point is, don't bring yourself down over this weight thing and the stereotypes about what you should be as a woman, etc. Knowing yourself and setting reasonable (and most importantly, achievable) goals is key to helping you lose weight if that's what you wish to do.Try looking up some recipes for leaner cooking,or visit fruit/vegetable markets (I'm sure there are plenty in Ottawa); or do what I've done and go vegan (you wouldn't believe the benefits this brings,plus,how much better you feel).Hope this helps.-James
Yes James, I know about all that stuff regarding not doing it to just look good and stereotypes and yada yada yada, but the fact that my pants don't fit anymore makes me mad dude. I don't wanna have to go into another shopping mall and spend a few hundred bucks buying new jeans ;___;
And no I won't go vegan, never never never until there's no cows, pigs, or chickens left on this planet I won't go began :x
okay first thing first.
Never starve yourself. Ne?
Don't worry I used to have the same problem too..in terms of weight although I do heaps of skipping to feel less guilty. It works...from what I can see..judging by the scales unless thats lying to me. ^^;;
Food is good :D :D
Skipping? Like skipping rope skipping? I don't get too much exercise except I walk everywhere, and these days I've been going skating fairly often. From what I've seen in your photos, you look awesome, I'm so envious *-*
And yes, food is so yummy =D
sorry for the late reply.. ^^;;
Yup! Yup! Although had to think for a few seconds. There's actually another type of skipping?! ^^;;
Skating...ohh..I wanna try that but my mum thinks I have a death wish.. o.O;
Hahaha ^^;; thank you. I actually look retarded in photos.. *thinks of school photos and shudders* D:
Ah...I used to be like that too! I'm also 5'2" and I used to be 165lb-ish. (This was around m highschool freshman year) Now, I'm 130lb. and a college freshman.
Though I didn't follow this to a strictstrictstrict degree...
*Replace soda with water/tea <--lifesaver
*Replace juice with fruit <--lifesaver
*Replace beef with chicken
*Replace candy and icecream with chewing gum and mints<--lifesaver
*Eat 2 bowl's worth of rice/noodles a week (painful, yes X_x)
*Eat your fav. veggies!
I'll admit, I was also guilty of the self-starvation technique. (It didn't last very long anyway. I cracked after 9 days.) If you do pursue that road...at least take 1 multivitamin a day. I used Centrum/One a Day for women. That way, at least you won't feel languid.
For exercise, I tried fun ones...like martial arts. It's pretty cool, and gives you more opportunities to meet new people.
Ah thank you, someone with a different view =D I gained a lot of weight in my freshman year (last year basically), I think it's cuz being in my tiny dorm room it was either, sleep, eat, being on the computer, or study, no exercise at all unless I actually went out for it, which I didn't. Thanks for the great tips~
Np np! I too, tried everything just short of intense exercise programs and "wierd pills."
I found that taking up new hobbies helps too, so you don't constantly think/crave food 24/7. Stuff like art/calligraphy/part time jobs...
Good luck! You can do it!
I'm trying to lose wait too. It's not that don't eat healthy food, I do, it's that I don't excercise at all.
Plus my diet is mostly rice and vegies . . . I refuse to give up my rice. LOL, that's prolly the problem, but I don't feel like I've eaten without my rice dang it!
If we don't meet up during the protest we should go work out together! I hate going to the gym or jogging by myself, it's kinda depressing, so we should join forces and beat the roll!
