May 31st Ending Weight:

Observations/Inferences: (22nd May)
1)Light/Moderate Cardio = No weight loss / loss is at SUCH SLOW RATE that a person gets bugged
2)Intense / Very Intense cardio with a good sweat for a couple of days = Sure shot weight loss
3)Heavy Dinners (esp in restaurants) = An indispensable weight gain the next day
4)No nutritional supplements for a couple of days(Aloevera + Aamla juice + Garlic tincture + Multivitamin tab )= Aggravated hair loss + feeling of weakness
5)Strenuous work-out in the morning = higher hunger levels throughout the day = improved metabolism for the particular day
6)Good sweaty Workout + being within calorie range everyday = weight loss upto a kg within 4-5 days
7) Good sweaty workout + exceeding calorie range everyday + binges now & then = NO WEIGHT LOSS of a Kg in 4-5 days/ Loss of a Kg after ages / No weight loss AT ALL (even upto a MONTH!)

My Goals:
My Goal is to reach that dream-weight of 47 Kg (104 lbs)...I believe I will be able to wear anything under the sun when I hit this target weight and look much more attractive than what Iam!

My Program:
I'm currently following a 100 Days Weight Loss Plan to help me reach my goal weight, which includes a disciplined caloric intake everyday and a religious routine of exercise. I keep a Diet Diary, wherein I feed my feelings, emotions and thoughts, plus my food intake and calories and also the various activities that performed in the day and the calories burnt. "Obsession" with this diet thingy is the new "MANTRA" for me.... ;)

Personal Information:

Other Information:
Losing weight isn't the only thing in my life...I have discovered the various opportunities life can provide you with...I'm an Artist, paint really well, sing, dance, cook, do gardening and read...

    Hey, I tried this few months back but found a 2-3 minutes Demo available back then. I will go and check it out today again... Glad that you reminded me. I can dowload some Tae-boe and some Abs as well,. .

    Thanks Dear...
    Have a great week.

    Wohoooo.. wayyyy to go my dear. Jillian Michaels was always my inspiration but i gues we dont get her DVDs here in India.. :( :(

    So i started off with 2 others. They are good, too. The only thing is i get bored doing the same thing for 13 days at a stretch. So, instead i mix things up to make it more exciting.
    On alternate days i do Jumping ropes, abs , stretching, yoga etc etc.
    Im so happy for all the hard work you're putting in and pray fr you to reach you destination soon.

    Take care ,

    Hi Apurva, nice to hear from you!

    I think this site is safe as you have to be a member although I don't suppose there is any control over who joins! The pictures you have of yourself at the moment are fine, and I have to say you look really good in the latest one!

    I wouldn't be afraid of adding more though, maybe pictures of you and your husband together, mixed in with others of yourself like the ones you already have.
