It's not really easy! I tell you. I started trimming down my diet to less salt, sweet and fatty food. My aim is not really to have abs, of course, and that would be ridiculous. At my age, to have a BMI of less than 24 would be good enough. I added a 30-minute exercise to my daily routine, at least for the start. My body was kind of sore on the first day but it really worked out on me.
My first week was challenging. I started adding one cup of brown rice into my cooking pot. The ratio is 1:1. Though we still have white rice mixed or until our 25 kilos of rice were consumed. I don't know how long it will take for us to finish half sack when we could only consume 3 cups a day. I look forward to that day when I would serve plain brown rice in our table in every meal. So to say, at least, we have few whole grain meal every day.
I couldn't believe the patience I exerted this week. I cooked spare ribs caldereta and put myself into test. I only had small serving and stop. Clap! Clap!Clap!
I haven't tried physical workouts in a gym yet. I will when I need too. For now, I am satisfied with my own program. I'm still looking for a gym buddy to go with me and be my inspiration in case a buddy looses weight effectively. For now, I think there is no big difference yet. I haven't weighed myself since I started because I don't want to get disappointed once I found out that nothing really changed, but at least for now, sure am, that I lost a few pounds. :)
