On 3rd Apr, my weight was 72.2 kg.
29 days of effort.
It's not over yet, I'm aiming to be under 70kg, but I'm tapering it down the weight loss will be slower and I'm starting to eat more. This is intentional. Just part of the plan.
During this past month, there's been many comments.
Why you need to diet?
You're not fat.
Why don't you try doing <insert suggestion>.
And pretty much, most people are just finding topics to talk about.
Unfortunately this tends to annoy me. Cos... well... I'm HUNGRY.
And these kinds of talk during this period is just annoying.
I mean like... HELLO!!! This journey is hard enough as it is without some weird comments, and me having to justify why I need/want to lose weight or why I don't want to eat.
I've had I think 4? Maybe 5 weight loss phases in my life.
All done in similar style and similar time frames. This time being the fastest I've ever accomplished it.
I've done a lot of reading about diets, metabolism, insulin control, exercise, etc.
And for me, it's been a sufficiently safe journey. I don't claim to be an expert on overall weight loss.
I do claim to know what works for my body and my own personal weight loss goals.
Typically these comments come from older folk. It's those aunties that come up with weird comments.
Younger folk tend to understand about physical appearance, health, diet, exercise, whatever.
Younger folk tend to not bother too much and just leave me alone.
And the worst thing is... these older folk or folks providing "ideas"... Haven't dieted or embarked on a weight loss journey for even a day in their lives, they haven't done any reading on the subject or had any interest in a healthier lifestyle.
I think younger folk get it. Most have tried to lose weight, or embarked on some program.
There really isn't much secret to weight loss.
Same as there isn't much secret to getting wealthier.
Just spend less, earn more and invest.
Similarly for weight loss, just eat less and exercise more.
No it's not easy.
It requires focus, commitment and sheer will.
Learnt some new techniques along this journey...
And I haven't even finished the cucumbers I bought... It's been pickled. So they will last for some time.
