I have always been on a constant battle with my weight. I try to convince myself that it's in my genes, but what kind of dumb reasoning is that? It was time to move and do something, instead of just shrugging it off and letting my weight get the best of me. So this year, I started making healthy choices, and signed up with Diet Diva.
Basically, all I did was reserve my slot and pay online thru BDO for my next week's meals in advance. No fuzz, no hassle and that's why I like it. I get perfectly portioned meals, all within the recommended 1200 calorie daily diet.
So, Day 1. I was totally not prepared for this. First things I observed are that (1) rice is usually just half a cup per meal (2) the meals are just "lightly" seasoned (3) I have been eating waaaaay more than 1200 calories on my usual diet.
Yes, it was a hard adjustment. To keep my hunger at bay, I drowned myself with water. More water = more trips to the loo, but that's okay. That just means I get to flush down toxins faster. Got to keep myself hydrated!
<start rant> I don't have a problem with quality of the meals, but damn, their delivery was late two days in a row. I didn't mind waiting between the declared period of 6:00 to 8:00AM, because that's what they disclose to their customers and I obviously agreed to those terms when I signed up. However, it was so unprofessional for my meals to get delivered as late as 9:30AM. I called their customer hotline, and requested for the status of my delivery several times. Feeling that this might happen again, I took my complaint online. Diet Diva personally apologized, I accepted it, but was wary. My succeeding meals were never delivered late again. For that, thank you. </end rant>
I signed up for Diet Diva for 2 weeks, but only lost weight during the 1st week. I was able to maintain my current weight for the succeeding week though. Why didn't I lose more pounds, you might ask?I think it's a combination of 2 things, (1) Blame it on the quality of meals I had during the weekends (2) I didn't do any form of exercise during this 2-week period.
Still, I am happy that I am not a lost cause. 10lbs is not that bad, right? But, I know that I can do more. So, I'm making an experiment and signed up for a different diet delivery partner for this coming week. Which one? Secret! Hahaha, stay tuned and I'll post an update, soon!
I'll also be incorporating a exercise again into my daily routine. I hope I can stick to it. This year will be all about improving myself, not just so I can look like my old self again, but for my health's sake as well. See you on my next pig out session!
PS. This post is not meant to body shame anyone who loves their full figure, this post is just meant to educate my readers and for me to chronicle my weight loss journey. I know they say to love yo' self, and I feel that I am loving myself by taking care of my health. That's all :)
