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...
