30 Off! Week 6

Trying to lose weight is so difficult. I wish it were as easy as swallowing a pill and having your excess fat just melt away. But maybe then everyone would just binge-eat and take those pills and be completely unhealthy. It’s definitely mind over matter but, more often than not, the mind isn’t very good at asserting itself.

Exercise? What’s that? I’ve been seriously lacking in that area. I must go back to that workout program Julio gave me.

I do the cooking in my house and have absolute control over the menu, but there are just so many recipes I want to try out! Our bookshelves are taken up mostly by my cookbooks, with a “healthy” cookbook shoved in here and there. I have been trying to eat much better this week. I consciously have to make an effort to spoon a smaller serving of rice onto my plate and a bigger serving of vegetables. It’s been tough saying no to dessert, and having just one serving if I can’t.

And what do I have to show for it? One pound less. I suppose that’s much better than one pound more! I have four and a half months to lose 24 more. Putting it that way, I have a long way to go!

Current Weight: 126 lbs.
