My New Diet Plan

It's gone.

The magic of losing weight while breastfeeding is far gone.

I weighted 60kg before I got pregnant. I was 80kg before Charlotte popped out. 1 week postpartum I was 70kg. And then I slowly shred those extra kilos month by month. I was not one of those lucky moms who can get back to prepreg weight within a short period of time, but I did lose weight. Slowly but surely.

To be honest, I'm not sure if I lost weight because of breastfeeding. I wasn't eating on time on a regular basis. Sometimes I could go one whole morning without food until late afternoon. So when I could finally savor on anything edible, I would just gobble it down like nobody's business. Diet? What diet? I'm thankful to even have a bite of white bread, really.

Sometimes I do get to enjoy something better than white bread such as a Korean set meal, with bibimbap, soup and all the side dishes. Before I was pregnant I would be very cautious of what I eat and how much I put into my mouth. But motherhood has changed me.

I started to eat like this. Literally. 

I was concerned before but when I see my weight dropping bit by bit everyday, I feel empowered. I feel like, THIS IS IT! I CAN NOW CONQUER THE WORLD (of food)!

So for the past 15 months, I've enjoyed myself. I indulge whenever I have the opportunity and feel utterly grateful towards the universe.

But things took a wrong turn  since 2 months ago, when I started working full-time. I am still breastfeeding but my boobs are sorta free and not working for at least 10 hours a day now. I didn't think much and continue to enjoy myself whenever I can. I could eat better and regularly. And it shows. ON THE WEIGHING SCALE FML! I've gained 1 FREAKING KILO PER MONTH FML TO THE MAX LA!

SO!!!

I'm gonna do something about it. After much thought, I've made a very difficult yet beneficial decision.

I pledge to cut down on my sugar intake!

To go on a sugar-free diet will be too huge a step for a sugar-addict like me. I don't eat snacks or drink fizzy drinks but I LOVE to drink drinks! Drinks like chocolate milk, matcha latte, milk, milk tea and milo! They all contains A LOT of sugar.. and milk lol. I think making this pledge is already a huge step for me as I take at least a cup of milo every day, maybe a cup of Starbucks green tea latte once or twice a month and a cup of milk tea from Chatime once a week.

I will also try to cut down on my dessert intake. I love cakes and tarts. I mean, WHO DOESN'T!? Especially now with the half-baked cheese tart craze, I went crazy a lil. But for the sake of my weight and health (and the kaching in my purse), I'm gonna try to resist the temptation.

Hopefully by stoping all this intakes, I'll see changes in my health (and purse, seriously).

I'm not going to be too tough on myself, though. If I successfully fulfill my pledge for a month, I might reward myself with a dessert or a drink of my choice.

Ok. I'm set.

Last weight this morning was 63.5kg fml. I'll blog about my progress and hope to bring you (and myself) some good news a month later.

  1. If you dedicate yourself over the next 21-days and follow The 3 Week Diet as outlined, you will be walking around with 12 to 23 pounds of body fat gone from your waist, hips, thighs, belly and butt. Your clothes will be looser, you’ll look healthier and more attractive…and you’ll have more energy than you’ve ever had in a long, long time.

    The best food for good health to maintain the system of your body I really engaged for.
