I don't even dare weigh myself now....... :(

Saturday, March 05, 2011

My Mom makes a mean laksa! Laksa is a Malaysian noodle dish with fresh grated cucumber, mung bean sprouts, fish cake, chopped pineapple, raw onions with a hint of lime juice, all topped off with an aromatic fish soup. My Mom's laksa is the best!

Which is why I'm so worried about weighing in now. I had a heaping bowl for breakfast, another heaping bowl for lunch, and I just had a small bowl a few minutes ago, and that was around 10.40pm.

I guess I'll be in trouble again on Monday. I'll be too heavy again. Gosh, everything seems so hopeless! Just for once, I'd like to extract less than 3 kilos during dialysis. Actually, not just for once, but from now on would be more appropriate!

Oh! What am I to do?!

    Small steps lead to long term progress! Don't let your menu today dictate how you feel about yourself. Lean into God, determine to make better choices tomorrow, and don't give in to negative self-talk!!

God is faithful! Submit your will to Him, and He will take care of the rest!

About dinner last night.

Friday, March 04, 2011

Well, I had a good time with my friend. I ate a LOT of sushi! and a medium size shashimi! I also had too much cold green tea. As expected I was still too heavy at weigh-in in the dialysis centre today.

I guess from now on, I have to eat like a rabbit and drink sparingly. It's my only choice now. My blood pressure keeps dropping towards the 3rd hour of dialysis. I have to take action now before it's too late!

Not only do I have to pray hard but I have to do something about it too, everyday.

    I like your last statement. We can pray, but, we also have to take control of our bodies as well. Good luck to you!

An unusual challenge for me....

Thursday, March 03, 2011

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.......

    Please take care of yourself. Watch what you intake carefully. 4 times a week, you really don't want. I know you don't. emoticon

Here I go again!

Tuesday, March 01, 2011

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!?

My resolution

Sunday, February 27, 2011

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!
