WEIGHTLOSS: General WEIGHTLOSS: My Diet/Exercise Diary

WEIGHTLOSS JOURNEY PART 2 ! It's Normal! =)

Sunday, February 03, 2013Traveliztera


Remember when I posted before about my weightloss journey from 150 lbs. to 103 lbs. ? My story was also published in Women's Health September 2010 issue:






After this interview, I reached 102 lbs., but I gained muscle weight after trying to continue my strength training plan, making me reach 115 lbs. 


Now, ever since I moved to Australia (2011), I gained 10 lbs. This was because I was adjusting to new routines, food choices, and activities. Despite going to the gym and walking/running long distances, I never got back to 115 lbs.


Then I went to the Philippines recently. BUFFET/EAT-OUTS everyday! I gained more weight, and now, I can't fit into my old jeans. I dislike buying new jeans for my new size, because I want to always be motivated to go back to my old size. Thus, IT'S TIME FOR ANOTHER ROUND OF MY WEIGHTLOSS JOURNEY! 



I have never gotten back to my old weight of 150 lbs.-- which is good. I'm around 125 lbs. right now. When I was in the Philippines last January, I reached 130 lbs. My goal is to at least be at 115 lbs. by May 2013. If possible, I want to be at 110 lbs. (without muscle weight), and once I start gaining muscles, I am fine to be at around 120 lbs. I want go back to my athletic self, and I just can't wait to get there! 



I am not perfect. I was not able to maintain my old weight. But that's normal! Even celebrities are having some struggles with losing and gaining weight every now and then. It is easy to criticise people, but look, even in other aspects of life, we have highs and lows. It's part of the learning process. Like in my case, I have learned a lot with my past weightloss journey, so now I know how to correct my habits, helping me get what I want.


So here's my tip to my fellow "weightlosers"-- ANNOUNCE YOUR WEIGHTLOSS PLAN. It gives you the support from your friends, and you get motivated to surprise people that YOU CAN DO IT. You do not want to disappoint them by not living out your announced commitment. That's the trick. This worked well with me before, and I hope this will help you too!


Stay tuned for my other weightloss tips and helpful apps that can get you going with your weightloss journey! Meanwhile, check out my WEIGHTLOSS POSTS here.

    2. Oops, sorry, Steph! haha. That's just the starting point, to lose 15 pounds, but I need to get rid of around twenty to twenty five actually. I think Jillian has "Ripped in 30", but I have not seen it yet.

    3. It's okay Ate Marie! :D
      I have a copy of Ripped in 30... That is like a long version of the 30-day shred and is more challenging... I didn't manage to finish it, but I hope to finish it next month after I finish the 30-day shred this month. =D I think there are youtube vids of the dvd's preview... :)

  3. Ohh - so we are on the same page. haha but my problem is I am not consistent enough to get back to my old size five years ago :( sarap kasi kumain eh. Anyhow - mind me asking your height? Because you look slimmer than I do pero mas heavy ka compared to my current weight. 5ft flat lang ako / 99 pounds but I carry a lot of fats specially sa belly and arms so sad to see in the photos.
