It's a struggle...


I had a very long rest yesterday...10 hours. Now that is something. For some reason I was so tired yesterday. Hardly surprising. It was a full day for me. Meeting with the supervisor, peer pressure with the postgrads, grocery shopping, picking up kids from school, a play in the park for the pre-primary kids and that meant socializing with the moms and grandmoms, and my 30 mins exercise with the kids to cap the day.

By dinnertime, I was sooo hungry I wanted to just forget about the diet plan and consume a large plate of yummy calorie packed dinner. Thank God I resisted even with my thinning willpower. Had a plate of greens topped with some tuna and a serving of rice instead. And I was still hungry after that. Drank a few glasses of water, then decided that I should have a good rest to make me feel better. I'm glad I did. I woke up fresh in the morning, ready to face another day of temptation resisting and kg reducing...

At times my selfish self cries "unfair". Why do I, someone who loves cooking and food so much, have to have a weak DNA structure that I easily become overweight and yet am unable to shed weight as easily? Oh yes, I envy people who do not have the problem. But I guess I have no choice but to accept myself and strive to maintain a good balance in life. If you ask me whether I'd forget about yummy food forever, I'd quickly answer "no". I'd shed the unnecessary weight, then continue enjoying food moderately. But before I can do that, here I am, faced with the daunting task of shedding and shedding kgs first. I wonder how long will it take...it seems forever.
