I've always looked down upon myself because of my weight. When I look in the mirror, the first thing I see is my circular face, my chubby cheeks, and my double chin. My eyes would then move downwards and look at my thick arms. I would turn sideways and be disgusted on how wide it looks … Continue reading Entry #8: Sometimes I think I look beautiful (and that’s okay)
I don't know how I come across in this blog, but in real life I am an introvert. I am comfortable in travelling, watching movies, shopping, and eating out on my own. It's like my "me time" - a time to reflect, a time to relax. I like to take long walks and explore every … Continue reading Entry #7: I enjoy spending time alone
As I mentioned before, cheat meals are good. They keep people not to be too deprived of their favorite food and they also keep our metabolisms up and running. However the real problem in cheat meals/days is where to draw the line. Today is the weekend so I usually am more forgiving in what I … Continue reading Entry #6: I won’t give in to the ice cream craving!
I'm so freakin' happy! For someone who's clumsy+unlucky as me, luck was on my side today. Let me list down the things that made me feelin' like - YAAAAS!

I was planning to buy some textbooks so I can … Continue reading Entry #4: Fighting off cravings and emotional eating
Okay I know that this blog is supposed to be more about losing weight and dieting but let me just rant and let out all this stress. I'm currently a first year medical student. It's already near the end of the second semester, specifically there are only 2 modules left. We started the second-to-the-last module … Continue reading Entry #3: Medical school rant -TIRED!
I decided to restart my weight loss journey last Saturday (see first entry). I must say, I did pretty okay. I was able to work-out that night! YAAY ME! I did a 40 minute dance workout using workout videos in Youtube. Thank god for fun videos and fun coaches. I like Keaira LaShae and The … Continue reading Entry #2: Good start
I feel that in order for me to move on and truly start this journey, I need to spill all my secrets, you know, make a confession. Therefore my first official diary entry will be about this past week. I would say that this is the lowest point I had. I finally snapped off the … Continue reading Entry #1: Coming clean
