Weight Loss Tips … or maybe not

If you’re a female, you’ll agree that “that time of the month” is no fun for us. For some reason, I had very bad cramps and felt very emo this month. And it didn’t help that I felt like a bloated whale and hence put off all exercise last week. Plus I was down with a bout of flu so I’ve been totally slacking on my exercising and gave in to my need to have chocolates and ice cream. I’m pinning the blame on the need to emo eat which was a double whammy to my diet.

Hopefully, this week, I’ll be more disciplined once I run out of excuses.

Meanwhile, here are some weight loss tips… Which may not guarantee any weight loss, but perhaps some laughs for a Monday 🙂

• Instead of calories, try consuming something else.

• To help remind you to exercise every day, wear workout clothes over your regular ones.

• Better still ,sleep  in your jogging shoes too.

• Use the first half of your lunch hour walking and, the second half walking back.

• Eat yourself skinny with these dumb bell cutlery; 1kg knives and forks and the 2kg dessert spoon. I kid you not! You can buy them here.

• Replace regular fruit with whole wheat fruit.

• Find that you cant stop eating? Arrange to get your wisdom tooth extracted. Perhaps one every other week and you’ll be on a soft diet for close to 2 months.

• One way to make yourself run more is to get chased by a mean dog.

• There’s one thing that all diets have in common: they’re called “diets”. I realize that may not help you, but I thought it was interesting.


Perhaps you have more helpful weight loss tips to share. Do share 🙂

      Most meal suppressant pills have side effects ranging from headaches, nausea, to more severe ones like kidney failure. It’s very common for office ladies to take them given our sedentary lifestyles but I find that in the long term, it may be detrimental to health and the effects may wear out once we’re off them.

    Haha good ideas here, I’m not going to try the mean dog one though. Lol. One quite effective way is to move overseas and take care of your child 24/7. Seriously. All the singaporean wives here are quite slim, also because we cook on our own and eat healthy food everyday, taking away all the oil and the fats you normally find in yummy singaporean delights. =) I don’t even find time to exercise here and my hubby is complaining I need to sweat! Guess I should start an exercise regime like you. =)

      It’s never to late to start getting active. That’s why I’ve also been cooking more and also bringing my own lunch to work. I don’t know if I’ll be able to be a SAHM. I reckon you’ll have your hands full and a good rest will sound much needed than exercise.
