I have unusual challenges that most women (and men) in SP don't face normally. This is because I'm a dialysis patient. I have SLE and this has caused my kidneys to fail. I've been on dialysis for 6 years now.
Unlike most ppl, I have to watch my fluid intake. I'm about to go out for a sushi dinner with a friend of mine and I'm so worried that I'll be too heavy (again!) for tomorrow's dialysis treatment.
At the moment, I go 3 times a week, and I'm scared to death of having to go 4 times a week instead. This is because I've been extracting 4kgs of fluid each time I go. And even after treatment, I'm still a little heavier than usual.
Allow me to explain. Ideally, after every treatment, I should weigh 56kgs (my current dry weight). But lately, I've been between 56.1 to 56.7kgs (on a bad day). I so afraid that the doctor will put me on 4 treatments a week instead of 3!
Dialysis 3 times a week is already a pain! 4 would be torture! Which means, I can't even enjoy myself fully during dinner today. I pray that I will urinate a lot tonight so that I won't be overly heavy tomorrow afternoon when I go for my last dialysis treatment for the week.....pray for me.......

Well, it's the beginning of the month again, 1st March 2011 and I'm starting anew. No more excuses. I'm going to track my food and exercise diligently from now on until I lose the weight. And after I lose the weight, I will still track my diet and exercise to maintain my new healthy weight.
Oh Yes! It's the new me! I've also joined similar challenges in 2 of my SparkTeams to drill the message home to my brain! It's also an accountability thing. Well, this time, I hope to reach 50kgs at last and when I do, I'll keep maintaining it.
I'm more than ready to shed my love handles! Who's with me!?

Hi, I must admit that I'm a little, no, okay, very lazy when it comes to tracking my food and exercise. As a result, I have gained half a kilo because of my carelessness.
So, I've come to a decision. Even though I'm Asian and eat an Asian diet, which makes it difficult for me to track my food here, I've decided that I'll do my best to track my food anyway. Even if it means creating some new foods on the tracker!
I mustn't be to hard on myself if on certain days, when I do skip the food tracking but on the other hand, I must make it a point to do so or any number of things could go wrong and I could end up putting on the kilos!
So, I will try my best to be consistent with :
1) food tracking & healthy eating
2) exercise & exercise tracking
Well, here it goes!

I've just put on half a kilo! Help!!!
That's it, double walks and double crunches (abs : main problem area). I also have to cut the snacks! But doesn't it say here in SP that we have to eat when we're hungry? What happens if you're hungry like all the time or just before bed?! Help!
I'm 4 feet 11 and currently weight a little over 120lbs or 56.5kgs. I would LOVE to be 50kgs. Well, I've just got to keep going I guess.......watching what I eat like a hawk and exercising every chance I get!

There is this sushi restaurant at the mall near my place that is an absolute hit! During lunch, dinner and especially during weekends, the place is packed! You need to queue to get in. So far, I've queued a few times already.
The thing is, I can understand why the place is so popular, I too, can't get enough of the place. The sushi and other stuff they serve there is delicious! For people who appreciate Japanese food, that is.
I even find myself dreaming of what to order the next time I go there, which will be soon. Another noteworthy place is Seoul Garden, it's a buffet place where you can bbq your own meat. They display lot's of marinated meats that you can just pick and bbq yourself. I will be going there next. Maybe I'll be addicted to this place also soon, lol!
I feel really fortunate to be living in Malaysia, ppl say the food is the best here! I'll have to say, I agree! So far, I haven't come across any food I hate here. In fact, I have to exercise self-control otherwise, well, let's just say I'll be a lot fatter if I didn't........
