I haven't really on my diet regimen. I am still 136 to 142 depends on my menstrual cycle. I was beating myself about not 100% determined to do a diet to get me down to my goal wt(125 lbs) lately and almost giving up to reach my 'best'.

Yesterday, I had a dental cleaning and the front desk person was asking me "What time do you want to come back for next cleaning?" I didn't say right away then, she said "Are you thinking about what time you will be back from gym?" I was surprised to hear what she said because that's what I was exactly thinking. I asked her how she knows. She said "because you look FIT..."

I didn't want to blog about this but as I think about that conversation, I want to mention about my little NSV. I know I look okay but I never thought about how other people perceive me. I used to be over 200 pounds more than 10 years ago and I couldn't run a block. Now I lift wt and can run 10K less than an hour. Even with my injuries and surgery, I am still doing what I can to be healthy. But the scale number always bothered me. I was not thinking about how far I've come rather I was depressed about not weighing 125. But after what happened yesterday, I was proud of myself changing my eating habit and exercise over 10 years to be who I am today. It is my vanity that I want to see the number 125 on my bathroom scale. I was weighing 125 pounds one time but I was starving myself to be that. Right now, I am feeding myself with good food and exercise to lower my body FAT. My thinking has been changed over the years from just 'be skinny no matter what' to 'feed yourself to perform'. I am FIT and that's more than what my scale says!

    What a great realization. Your hard work and dedication has made you fit. You can't control how "skinny" you much of that is based on genetics. But you can control whether you are making healthy choices. And it sounds like you're doing a great job.

Week 1 update

Monday, August 18, 2014

Wt: 139 lbs (still more than my lowest)

emoticon My body is still holding onto the water from eating too much salt. I am very sensitive to sodium and all the stuff I'd like to eat have tons of sodium. I crave mostly pizza and ice cream and that's what I ate and I drank crystal light. I thought crystal light doesn't have any sodium but this particular flavor(Lemonade) has 35mg per serving and one pocket has 8 servings. I usually drink plain water but I want to drink something sweet after eating salty food. I drank all the lemonade crystal light so I bought the flavor that doesn't have so much sodium in it. I should eat something not from manufactured. Need to do portion control and eat whole food rather than from box.

    Hang in there! It takes a while for our body to catch up sometimes. Remember the scale is just one small tool in getting healthier. Look at the other things you are succeeding at: getting in your water, exercising, eating fruits & veggies, recognizing your mistake and working toward better habits.

You will get there!

12 weeks of transformation coming soon near you :-)

Sunday, August 10, 2014

My husband is currently deployed to oversee and he will be back in 12 weeks.
I will be reporting my weekly progress here. I hope the scale wt goes down each week and lose inches off my body(except my boob emoticon ). I want to transform my body to 'the best' I can and want to knock his socks off when he sees me. I've been trying to lose wt and tighten up my body for awhile(he's been gone since May) but because of my injuries, I couldn't really diet or lift wt. Now I really need to do it. 12 weeks seem so long but it will be gone before I know it.

I lost some wt last week but since I had my period, I have gained some water wt back and am very bloated. Therefore I will not count the wt gain for tomorrow weigh-in. But I will report the lowest wt I was before my period as the beginning, which is 135.8 lbs. My weigh-in day will be on Monday since I'm struggling to be on track during weekend. I hope I will be good on weekends now on.

90 days left, the goal is 125. One meal at a time, one pound at a time, I am getting close to my goal and I will be happier and healthier.

Can I transform to my dream body? Yes!!!

Saturday, July 26, 2014

Well, it's been long time I blogged on what's going on with my life.
I moved to another state across the country and it's been almost a year.
My lowest weight before the move was 135 pounds and my BF was 15%(I don't think this is accurate) with 132 pounds by BodPod test. Since then, I have gained some, lost some and gained some more and my weight fluctuate between 136 to 142. I am planning to have another bodyfat test by BodPod in November. My goal is to beat my last lowest body wt & fat % and if I meet 125 pounds. Because I don't think the BodPod bodyfat % is correct, I will use my home scale comparison. Right now, it shows that I have around 29% BF and my goal is to be 20%.

This year has been a tough year for my body because I've been injuring myself a lot. Thru running and P90X3, I hurt my leg and I just had a surgery on my hand. Currently, I am recovering from the surgery and I will be seeing the doctor on Monday for final(I think). I was advised not to do any exercise for now. I will discuss about my exercise plan and the diet at that time.
Since the injury on my leg, I have not doing any high impact exercise and the only option was 'walking'. Also, I've been on maintenance mode for my eating since the surgery, I am glad that I didn't gain that much weight.
I am anxious to get my exercise started and get ready to lose some more weight to reach my goal for this year.
I am positive that I will reach my goal this year if I keep doing what I need to do. I know it has not happened yet but I know what I need to do now thru trial & error. This year( August to December) will be my 1st phase to my dream body. My ultimate goal, which I plan to reach in 2015, is bf 18% and body wt around 115 pounds.

But for now, let's focus on next 3 months. I threw all junk food out of my house today and ate the stuff I've been craving for(blaming 'the time of the month'). I will weigh myself and measure the body parts tomorrow morning. It will be little(just little, I hope) bit higher than normal since I consumed high sodium foods today.

I CAN transform to my dream body!

A work in progress

Wednesday, September 25, 2013

Here I am almost to the end of September, I am trying to see what I can do before 2013 is over. I lost some weight over the summer but gained some back due to getting too comfortable with new skinny me. My lowest wt for this summer was 132.4 in Aug. 23 and the highest after the wt loss was 145.2 in Sept. 14. Wow, that's a lot of wt gain in a very short time. That's about 13 pounds increase in 3 weeks. I blame eating too many cheesecakes and eating out a lot.
I weigh average 140 pounds now but I am more concerned about my BF% increasing. I was down to 27% but now it's around 30%.
As of today, 97 days to go for a fantastic 2014. I am committed to write more blog about my progress in wt loss or actually overcoming my binge. I am a hard exerciser(exercise every day) but in food wise, I am very bad dieter emoticon . My plan for October will be cutting my daily intake to 1500 calories a day. It will be really hard since I am eating way over 2ooo calories a day. I would keep my cardio as usual(or maybe little less) and put back my lifting plan. I haven't lift a while since I have been traveling a lot. I may do P90X or something that is planned out already.
Tomorrow I will measure & record my stats and work hard towards to meet my 2nd goal, which is reaching 120's by end of October.
