I signed up for a 'transformation motivation by June 1'. I am hoping to lose 10-15 pounds by then. My B-Day is a couple days after that deadline so, I really want to finish this challenge with a big wt loss. I made my mind up to eat very blend meals. Thru a course of binges, I noticed whenever I eat spicy, salty or any strong flavor food, it causes me to eat more other food. Therefore I will avoid spicy food, which is salty usually, like a poison. Don't know how it will be but I don't know until I try it. I am either do it 100% or none at all person. I will make a menu and exercise plan for everyday and will check it off as I follow the plan.
Tomorrow I will start this and I have about 81 days left for the final show-off. I already took a 'before' pictures and measure the body parts to compare with 'after'.
One meal at a time and one sweat at a time, I will transform myself to be a better me.
Update: as of June 1, I weigh 143.2, BF % 32

I want to transform my body this year. First phase will be 'controlling my appetite'. I always thought I burn off calories I ate by exercising but I didn't and couldn't; I eat way too much. So for this phase, I will concentrate on eating right. "Right" I meant, eating within daily allowed calories, eating more protein, eating more fiber, eating more good fat and drinking lots of water. I will not drink soda. It will be hard because I like to drink diet soda but it makes my stomach bloated and I crave food that's not good for me. I will be mainly walking and lifting weights. No heavy cardio which I always do...I have a 10K race coming in April but I will train for that after this phase is over.
So here is my day 1, phase I--reality check
Weigh-in: 166.2(32.9 BF%) @6AM
Above Chest: 36"
Below Chest: 35"
Belly Button: 42"
Thigh: R-24", L-24.5"
My body is not symmetric. I'm right handed and my right arm is much stronger than my left. Therefore, it is .5" bigger. But why my left side lower body is bigger than my right thigh/calf? I know I cannot reduce one spot. I need to lose the body fat in order to see more defined muscle tone all over the body. I gain muscle easily yet it's hard to lose the fat since I overeat all the time. I will evaluate the progress on February 13. My weight for this morning is due to water retention due to my 2 weeks of indulging myself in high sodium foods and my monthly cycle. I am sure it will go down once I start my period (or at least I hope.)
I will try to blog everyday for my accountability.
I want to accomplish something this time around since I never follow the plan.
Update-It's almost 8PM and I didn't do good on my eating or walking. I only walked 3.5 miles and ate almost 4,000 calories I think(didn't measure). Also, I started my period this afternoon and that explained why I was craving for all sorts of stuff and body ache and chill. Wish tomorrow is a brand new day and start fresh. Will reach my goal this time!!!

I lost weight before by not eating properly. But I gained it back and more. This time around, I want to lost fat by eating well and lifting weights. I am reading more about fitness and learned that I need to build muscle because as you get older you lose muscle mass and that means you cannot eat as much :-)
So, I try to do ST three times a week and every time I lift weights I get sore(that's good, I'm lifting heavy) and I want to eat all day LONG. I didn't notice it before but as I don't see any progress as far as losing weight, I am looking back why I am eating so much. I am trying to cut food intake so that I can lose weight and if ST is causing me to eat outrageously, what should I do? As much as I want to build muscle, I think I should limit to just one day of ST. Now on I will be concentrating more on cardio and my diet. I don't want to be a cardio bunny(hate that term) but I will try and see.
What do you think?

On Saturday, I went to mall to eat not to shop. There is a Japanese buffet restaurant in the mall which is very nice. I haven't been there for a couple years and my DH wanted to go there since I like sushi. Anyway, we had about 45 minutes before the restaurant to open for lunch. (We got there early because I had a medical test that morning and it was done early.) To kill the time, I went to shop for clothes. I don't need any new clothes but, why not? I bought a skirt from H&M which made me happy that I could find some clothes in size 10. I tried size 10 before in that store and it was tight. I know the style could make a difference in fitting but I was happy that I found something I like and it fits snug. After that, DH & I wondered around the mall and went into BCBG Max. I know I don't have any fancy event to go but I wanted to see what kind of dress they have. As we walked in, the sales rep greeted us and told me that they have more 'sizes' in the back if I need. She basically said that the sizes they have out will not fit me. I know I'm not skinny but it hurt little...especially in front of my husband. She was really skinny and other sales associates were tall and skinny too. I checked the sizes in the store and they were size 0 or 2. Well, I would not fit any of them. I'm only size 10. I was feeling good about myself losing some wt and found a cute outfit. But after the trip to BCBG, I was bummed. They probably don't even have my size in the back. My size is too big for them to carry. I know I'm being too sensitive about the comment she made but it didn't help my mood. I made a joke out of it and went to the restaurant. I ate my lunch and came home. I was de-motivated and ate all weekend long and didn't exercise at all. Now I'm motivated to lose more wt and I will visit the same store next year and try on its dress size 2. (When my lowest wt, I wore size 4.) I will not buy it but I will take a pic. Hopefully my dream come true.
