3 reasons why I never lose weight.

Wednesday, March 20, 2013

I have been having a lifetime love-hate relationship with my body image, to be honest. The last time I was really happy with my weight and my body shape was a gazzilion years ago.

Just like a typical mother, I have baby weight clinging around me eversince I gave birth.

And it is not cool. At all.

Although at one point I learnt to just let it go, apparently it is not easy. Especially when the fact is you should be able to lose those weights, it just takes some guts and determination to do it.

So here I am, on a diet again just to shed the remaining 5 kilos into my pre-pregnancy weight (at least). I am not going to be unrealistic about achieving my teenage, sports girl weight, please don't ask about it. Haha.

Just so you know, I am on a low-carb and low-sugar diet. And let me tell you, it's freakin' CHALLENGING!

See when you go into this kind of diet, you realize that 80% of what you eat everyday consists of carbs and the freaking SUGAR. Even chilli sauce contains sugar, what lah. Tskk...

And in case you did not know, excess SUGAR turns into FAT.

If you keep on feeding yourself with these sugar, the body will process those immediate fuel to produce energy and the remainder will be kept in the body as a "reserve" known as FAT. In a nutshell, a low-sugar and low-carb diet tells the body to use up these reserve, hence the weightloss.

In theory it sounds simple. But making it happen is again, darn challenging.

So anyway in retrospect I have been thinking to myself why do I not shed kilos and keep on gaining so easily. And I have come up with these:

1) I tend to finish up unfinished food - but because I hate to waste, really!
2) I have sweet tooth. I LOVE rice. And I think I love it because of the sugar and my body craves it.
3) I don't eat big portions everytime. But I eat and snack on the wrong things and at the wrong time.

Big problem huh? I know.

Dieting is so not me. I love food. I enjoy food. But then came a time when I realized that yes I can do that, but I should eat more responsibly. For my body and my health's sake.

Don't ask me how much have I lost so far. It's just have been 3 weeks which feels like 3 years! I am an impatient person, and another problem is that I can't stand waiting. But I know this time I HAVE TO MAKE IT HAPPEN!


So how do you manage your weight? Are you like me, or are you one of those lucky woman who just never gain weight? (a bit of envy there, heheh). Anyway, tell me! :)
