Myself: 'The Diet Master'

Hello everyone. How you all doing? Mimi's here....

My my... what a terrible haze we seems to be having in Kuala Lumpur in this couple few of days and as a result; my eyes and throats are getting irritated like most of the time. Hopefully the open burning they had in Indonesia will soon died and fades out cause I don't think I could tolerate it anymore if this continues to goes on... :( (wearing mask is not an option).

Anyways... putting haze aside cause it's not going anywhere soon (as far as I know off), let's get back to the main title of this post.. Hehehe... Myself; The Diet Master.

Well well well... as a starter, before I start going into this topic too deep; let me go around by giving a little bit history about myself. Call it a 'confession' if you will, but growing up - I used to be fat. Like super duper, chubby-kinda-fat. I can't remember when the last time my weight was below 60, and yeah it seems like an ages ago - but that's how I used to spend throughout my adolescent year. This unhealthy distribution part of my life continuous to go on until I turned 21 years old when something 'miraculous' finally took place...

It's when I went back to my hometown (Malacca) and proceed with my internship for one semester...

By then, it has been almost 1-2 years since I stayed at home for a quite long period of time (almost 6 months). The last time I ever had was before I went to UKM (after Matriculation) and quite honestly, I could say that I'm not thrilled being back again. Don't get me wrong, staying in college definitely had its perks and all, but it also had been a while since I felt free to do whatever I wanted (eating and cooking whatever and whenever I'm in the mood) so I quite miss it. Being at home again, surrounding myself with familiar stuff, eating good food... yup, that's almost like a dream of mine when I was alone and all by my own in UKM.

But then, the internship started and along with that, the illusion of a good life, are slowly and steadily being ripped off...

Now, lets me start by telling you that to prepare a good breakfast every morning and go to work afterwards, well that proves to be a little bit challenging for the three of us (mom, dad, and me) as all of us need to be there at certain hour to serve towards the company/institution that we're obligated to. So, the first illusion of 'I'm going to have my mom to cook me meal every morning is actually...
FALSE!'. My mother didn't have time for that as she and my dad are both working and have to go to work early (besides they can have their meals at their office/school) and that's left me, the new-kid-in-working-environment to have breakfast on my own every morning which also accidentallly resulted in bringing me to the kitchen closer than ever...

And this is where it all started. Me, trying out recipe in order to prepare the best-tasting and fulfilling breakfast for myself and selecting my ingredients.

I don't know what it's, but not long after I started doing this - I started to grow some conscience over everything I ate. For example, how many sugary drinks had I taken in this morning and today? How many scoop of rice had I put into my plate and onto my mouth? Had I had my little snacks today? What about fruits? Did I ate any vegetables today? You know, those sort of questions that could make me look like a nutter health freak... Haha, I even start being calculative about the amount of fast food that I ate during that month! This might have been strange for people who knows me as a big eater (based on the previous size of my body) but my parents seems to be strangely oblivious about this. Even my brother didn't see much of the difference when he saw me, but my friends certainly could see the differences when I went back (UKM) to finish the remaining of my studies and pointed out to me.

Truth to be told - I was initially surprised. Was it really that obvious? Did my body really had change? Why didn't I notice anything? And most importantly, why didn't my parents and bro say anything about this before? Why does someone else had to say this to me? Hehehe...

This feels so strange, man (0.0):

But, either I really had lose my weight or not - I honestly feel just the same. If anything else, I feel a little bit lighter if I start doing anything physical (jogging, dancing). In a way, dropping weight had thought me to have less appetite or any cravings after you had eaten something. Like no more sugar and salt if you already put them in earlier, or add some more fiber and fruits if haven't already. I think this is all had something to do with the mindset. If your mind knows that you had already have enough food for today, it will also teach your body to not taking in any food or indulge in binge-eating. I think that's what it all is... No diet pills, no crash diet... just a plain calorie count, enough water, physical activities routine (exercise and dancing), and strict discipline that you already had enough meal to get you going for today. And also, a little treat/cheat day to reward yourself with and keep you motivated throughout this new, healthy lifestyle changes wouldn't hurt either ;)

So, that's it guys... A little story about Myself; 'The Self-Proclaimed Diet Master'. Haha, I know that I'm not really that thin if you happened to meet and see me in person, but I can definitely tell you that I'm proud with my current weight because I haven't feel this healthy in years. Even my BMI, blood pressure and urine are on the right track and I couldn't be happier. Hopefully my health and yours reader will continue to flourish and if there's anything from my suggestions are worth saving, be my guest to save and applied it yourself. Thanks for reading and have a nice day!

Lots of Love: Mimi Said
