It all started when my brother decided to lose weight. The deal was that he was not going to eat any carbs. These includes bread, rice, pasta and potatoes, oatmeal is an exception though. It has been 3 months when he started and… he lost 17 pounds, from being overweight he became normal.
Because of that, I decided, I’ll lose weight too! No more carbs for me! I started two weeks ago, and so far I’ve lost about 3 pounds. Not bad, it’s working pretty well. It was hard, because I loved carbs and now I have to give it up for lettuce. Eating out is a challenge, I can’t eat in fast food restaurant and I became a pretty picky eater. I can only eat certain foods.
Especially here in the Philippines, it isn’t considered a meal without rice. So, I have to pick carefully. Something that I’ve learned from this diet would be learning how to say no. Learning how to say no to pizza even though you love it so much and saying no once you’ve had enough food for a meal. Once you get the hang of it, it’s pretty easy to reject it. #selfdiscipline
I really do want to continue with this diet, and now that I’m in it already for two weeks, it would be hard to stop. I mean, you invested in it already, might as well make it work. Time for an awesome and healthy 2014! Let’s make it happen!
