Getting Back on Track

I had been very good towards the end of 2008. (Note the clue – “had”.)

For the first time in my life, I had (properly) embarked on a (much-needed) diet. Before, because I am slightly above average for an Asian woman, I could get away with my weight. Alas, when I reached a certain age (ask me personally and I’ll tell you) the excess began to take its toll. It felt uncomfortable. So, on a diet I went.

And I saw results!

Yes, you’d want to know what it was…

It’s called RESET because it helps you to reset your body and you lose the cravings to eat. At the same time, you lose weight!reset011

Sounds too good to be true?

Well, I was on it intermittently over a few months and saw the effects – lost 7 kgs! More importantly, I didn’t put the weight back on over Christmas!

That’s right, Reset works! It also worked because it also teaches me to eat right – avoid the high glycaemic indexed foods.

Therein lies the pitfall. At times, I have indulged and I have “got away with it”. This was often so much so that I indulged even more. Well, we all know what happened next! The scales don’t lie!

SO! With Chinese New Year fast approaching, and greater temptation for indulgence ahead, (I have a wonderful menu planned for the customary new year eve dinner!) I need to GET BACK ON TRACK!

Others make their new year resolutions. I am making my Chinese New Year resolutions.

I will get my weight back down again! I will get my weight LOWER than before! I will NOT “test” my cupcakes. I will AVOID the sugary stuff. I will ABSTAIN from the high glycaemic index foods (white bread begone!)

That’s five things there. Good enough a start!

    Well, good luck with that! I too have had to face the music. I got on the scale on January 1st and thought the thing was busted. I changed the batteries, and found the scale was working fine – it was ME. 😦 I’ve vowed to do better, and have been posting diet-friendly recipes each Sunday to try and jump-start my efforts.

    I’m going to look into that “reset” plan now….
