United in Weight Loss

For some reason earlier today, I googled my name and found a video of me and my brother Ken during our speech at the 2011 Top 10 Emerging Influential Blogs where our food blog, Certified Foodies, was voted on top. I swear, the minute I saw the thumbnail for the video, I told myself, I NEED TO FRICKING LOSE WEIGHT!!

I know, I know. I’ve been blabbing about losing weight here for months. After my successful 30-pound weight loss from 2010 to the first quarter of 2011, I think I gained them all back or more because of my lifestyle. Yes, I still enjoy food as much as before, but I strayed off the no/less rice diet I was following that helped me lose all that weight 2 years ago. Now, I’m desperate about losing all the fat for good.

I miss dancing. It’s one of the things I LOVE back in my teens ’til my 20s. I’m good at it too. And I want to go back to dancing so I am more than determined this time to stop being fat.

I want to go back to how I looked in this photos…
or at least the first photo at the bottom row.

Loving food is not an excuse to be fat. I still want to enjoy food, but, like a recent acquiantance said, we shouldn’t make it a routine or a daily habit to eat fattening food or anything that’s not generally good for us.

I also realized that I’m not just procrastinating with my other tasks, but I’m actually starting to neglect my body recently. I’ve been caring about my face and forgetting about the bigger part of my whole body (pun intended).

A friend shared with me information about the weight loss pills she’s been taking. They’re from Japan and when I saw her, she did lose a lot of weight already. As much as I’m tempted, I keep on thinking about apidextra side effects and all the unhealthy results of weight loss pills. I’ve used diet pills before and I didn’t really encounter any side effect, but I know this is a discipline problem.

So, starting hopefully this week, my bro and I will go on a no-rice diet and go to the gym 2-3 times a week. I’m planning on buying a treadmill now instead of an elliptical since we need a more intense workout. I’m just waiting on him to find out when exactly we’ll start at the gym. Good thing there’s a decent gym a ride away from here. I miss my early 20s body desperately.

Wish us luck!
