Losing weight in Bangkok

Sunday, August 02, 2015

So apparently the trick to losing weight is living in Bangkok! Since I moved here in June my clothes have been getting bigger and bigger until the other day my skirt actually fell down while I was walking. Luckily I had a long shirt on and caught my skirt before it hit the ground, but talk about embarrassing! I put that away and need to go buy another now. Plus, we took a mini-vacation to Ko Samed island last week and I bought a size 10 bikini there. I haven't been a size ten in a long time. I was wearing between a 12 and 14 in May.

It's due to a combination of walking all over the city, eating asian food which is mostly rice or noodles with veggies, spices and a small portion of meat, sweating like a pig (not sexy!) and swimming almost everyday in the pool on the roof of our apartment building.
I'm still looking for a full-time job, but for now I've been hired as a substitute teacher in the two international Australian schools close to my house.

Here are some photos:

And this little lady grabbed my water bottle the minute I put it down to take a picture. Little thief! lol

    Fantastic news - am so happy for you. Hope you'll soon find a secure and rewarding job that you'll love. Hope your husband has settled into his new job without too much difficulty. Can't be easy to return to the workforce after a break in a completely new country. And as for your mother-in-law, I can only guess how much you miss having her in your home (ahem, coughs loudly.)

    I am so happy to read all is going well! You seem to be having a great time settling in. And you don't seem disappointed with the food, which is good as Italy is difficult to beat!!! :) Congratulations for losing the weight. I suspect the fact that you are in a less stressful situation helps too!

    Congratulations on losing weight in Bangkok! The Reason why you're losing weight in Thailand is because they have less processed foods in the USA and more fresh fruits and vegetables! Thanks for sharing all your wonderful pictures! I hope you find a job soon! Wishing you a wonderful day! :-):-)
