As I screamed, that’s an exaggeration wait, no I jumped for joy. There’s that sign all you can eat fries. Almost 300 calories of bliss in one small serving and I can triple it, oh wait like I can multiply it by a tenfold. Wow!!! I just love french fries I’m sorry lol. Talk about the health risk in that, there should be a general liability insurance cost if something happens to you after being the glutton that you are. I mean, that I am. Yum. Who wants eat all you can eat fries! Raise your hand!
So after dozens of exercise dvds and staring at the tv rack , I thought I’ll go into cycling. Got a bit bored with running, would be nicer if I was running along the beach.
I tried the hubby’s bike, I broke it again. I tried it before and the seat just got bent. Mommy’s just too heavy lol. I lost weight then gained it back again. It’s a never ending struggle. However, my hubby said never to give up as Dr. Phil said. Maybe I’ll be model thin by the time I’m a Senior ha ha.
Relaxing, listening to your playlist on your ipod touch 8 gb with a gallon of ice cream to beat the heat can be fun but not exactly fun for your waistline. One workout you probably haven’t tried yet is Plana Forma.
Plana Forma is a workout designed to make you a fitness addict. The complexity mix of exercises such as pilates, dance and yoga plus all those weights can make you fit and fab quickly losing fat in those places that annoy you each time you look in the mirror. A good friend of mine Mayo never really fell in love with an intense workout such as this. Check it out.

>How much calories are you taking?. I love coffee, it helps me stay awake and do some zombie surfing while the little girl is off to dreamland. Surprisingly if you’re not taking plain brewed coffee then you’re probably letting yourself put on some pounds while working (or pretending you’re working when you’re playing facebook games) So keep in mind, just an estimate you lose 120 calories within 30 minutes session of exercise and of course you do need calories to function but too much can convert it to fat instead. http://www.guidetohealthcareschools.com/ can help you learn what it takes to maintain a healthy lifestyle.
1. 3 in 1 coffee – seventy five calories
2. 1 chocolate chip cookie – one hundred thirty calories (not 1 box, it’s ONE piece)
3. 1 bag of baked potato chips – one hundred forty calories
4. 1 cup of white rice – two hundred and five (ouch, that’s why I switched to brown organic)
5. 1 piece or slice of white bread - one hundred forty calories
6. Starbucks Grande Mocha Frap – three hundred seventy ( that’s why it tastes so yummy!)
7. 1 cup Tuna in oil – two hundred ninety (there’s your true love)
8. Small Mc Donald french fries – two hundred fifty six (what the!)
9. 1 Burger King whopper - six hundred seventy calories (a Whopper!)
10. 1 KFC Chicken thigh – two hundred fifty (another reason to go vegan, will work on that)
So before you take two cups of coffee, go extra extra on your fast food choices. Keep these in mind. Of course a calorie counter is not perfect but that’s the closest we can get. The good news is you can eat all you want you just need to exercise more to lose the excess. Not easy but that’s how it goes. If you take more than your body burns, you gain it and it pops right there on your weighing scale.
Well if you all would wait for me to be one, then the world will never end. Ain’t that good?
Terrible little thing over here, family death, a week off from exercise, loading up on junk, coffee, sleepless nights.
been a bit crazy, saying funny and freaky stuff plus I can’t get that soap opera song out of my head.
It’s too hot, seriously I’d like to stuff Me in the freezer if I could fit into it. So I don’t eat rice but I ate too much Ice Cream, Iced Tea, Iced Water, Iced Man etc..
Back to Zumba, Turbo Jam, Rockin body, Hip hop abs. I now understand why people resort to taking Bangkok Pills.. It takes months to lose and a week to gain it all back.
But hey, Me not givin up!!!! With all that I read about exercise and how important it is to prevent muscle loss and diseases, I’m hooked. Yeah!! That’s the spirit. Maybe when doomsday comes (Hopefully it will not be tomorrow) I already get to explode in tiny little slivers of light instead of cellulite.
OMG, don’t let the world end tomorrow, I haven’t watched Pirates of the Caribbean on Stranger Tides as yet.
I saw this on PEX and thought it would be a good thing to post it here.
SLIMMING PILLS ~ WARNING
I wanted to warn everyone about purchasing slimming pills. STOP. You can continue reading about my ordeal or you can stop here and google the word “SIBUTRAMINE“.
I’ve always been slim – 90 to 95lbs at 5’1″. I could eat whatever I want and maintained a waistline of 24″ or 25″ even after giving birth to my 2 kids. I was never a sickly person. Never been confined for any ailment at the hospital. In 2003, when I hit age 30, my metabolism slowed down and I noticed that my weight fluctuated from 100 to 110lbs. I couldn’t fit in my jeans anymore. Even though I religiously worked out at the gym 5x a week – I couldn’t seem to go back to my old size.
I started buying Bangkok Pills. I took it for a month then stopped when I hit my target weight of 95lbs. Every time my weight went up, I would take it again. This went on for a while, and I think I used up 2 & 1/2 packs. Until I started hearing news about people dying of heart failure from taking it – then I finally quit BP. I switched to Xenadrine then to Hydroxycut then Xantrex. Each one always had a side effect. I was so obsessed and wanted to find the ultimate diet pill that allowed me to eat, sleep and get through the day with just the minimum side effects.
In early 2006 I discovered Maggie slimming pills in Glorietta. It did a good job suppressing my appetite. I was still able to eat enough to sustain energy. I was able to sleep fine. No heart palpitations. No dry mouth. I maintained my target weight and size. In all, I thought I found what I was looking for.
Sometime in September of 2006 – I woke up with big black and blue bruises all over my left leg. I couldn’t walk. My skin was too warm to the touch. My calf muscle was stiff as a rock and I was swollen behind my knees. As I ran my hand from my inner thigh down my leg, I could feel a network of veins were swelling. I was in extreme pain. I thought I just sprained my leg muscles at the gym so I stopped going for a week. When I was able to walk again I went back to the gym. The bruises faded after awhile but the pain never really left. My muscles and joints were aching most of the time that I just kinda got used to it. There are times when I would literally stop walking and just grab on to something or someone to keep from falling. The pain was excruciating.
I went to see a Hematologist at the Makati Med wondering if I had a blood problem. She did all the tests but everything came out ok. She was however confused by the unusual warmth on my left leg and the swollen veins. She sent me to a Rheumatologist. The Rheumatologist gave me a physical and I was fine. He sent me to do more blood tests. Every kind of blood tests (too long to list). These came out negative. They did a Doppler Ultrasound to see if I might be suffering from Deep Vein Thrombosis. This came out negative. I saw a Neurologist and he did physicals and it was negative. My condition deteriorated.
I migrated to the US in February 2007. By this time I couldn’t stand or walk without screaming in pain. I couldn’t climb down stairs. I couldn’t do all the things I used to do for my family. Things like cooking breakfast for my kids before school, couldn’t walk the dog, couldn’t drive, couldn’t go to work. I put away all my heeled shoes — couldn’t use those anymore. I went to see more doctors here, half a dozen more who ordered all kinds of tests. I had an Electromyogram (EMG) and Nerve Conduction test – negative. I had an MRI — negative. What’s even more confusing was that the pain now spread throughout my body. It seemed as though all my muscles and joints were in pain.
Here’s something funny. All throughout my ordeal I kept taking my slimming pills because I worried about my weight. I was unable to work out at the gym so I was diligently taking my pills. I never told any of my doctors that I was taking slimming pills – I didn’t think it was related. I thought the whole leg thing was a gym injury of some sort to the nerves and tissues in my leg.
I ran out of my slimming pills supply in June 2007, exactly the time my Orthopedic doctor ordered Physical Therapy for me. I was getting Electromagnetic Impulse Treatments on my leg. I thought that this was curing me of my ailment because I started walking again. I was able to return to the gym. I gradually started mountain hiking once or 2x a month. I was pain free for a half year. But had developed unhealthy eating habits during the time I was sedentary due to my leg pain.
At 115lbs I was desperate to go back to 95lbs. I discovered someone on eBay who sold Zhen Den Shou. She was importing it from the Philippines. So I started buying this in January 2008. And so the vicious cycle began again. I would lose weight, stop the pills, gain weight, get back on the pills. My leg began hurting and once again had difficulty walking. I never once connected it to the pills. Until one day, when I read this article about Zhen Den Shou & Sibutramine: (click here)
I went to Wikipedia to read more about Sibutramine and there it was on the section SIDE EFFECTS. Joint and muscle pain. It also mentions that while Sibutramine is used for treatment of obesity, it also has a weird side effect: paradoxically increases appetite. What a joke, right? I did more reading all over the net and it really opened up my eyes. I will spare you the details on what this drug has done to me internally but I will leave the relevant & significant research upto you. Basically, Sibutramine can be found in most of the diet pills sold on the market today.
I am 35 years old. I have started doing 1hour walks in the morning. I go to the gym 3-4x a week. I drink fruitshakes everyday, get enough protein and sleep on time. I am slimming down gradually and safely. I’m pain free, and I can walk fine I don’t take slimming pills anymore. This is not a happy ending, ok? All those toxins I put in my body may have long term effects. They might manifest 5 years or 10 years from now in another form of illness. In all probability, I may have already damaged my system and I deeply regret that. I just thank God that I found out now about how ignorant and reckless I have been. I want to live a long and healthy life with my husband and watch our children grow.
Folks, whether its Zhen Den Shou, Maggie Slimming Pills, Lida DaiDaihua, or whatever pills you are taking or intending to take – follow my advice and RESEARCH the ingredients and side effects carefully. When you do a Google, make sure to put the name of the “Product + Sibutramine” in your search to see if there are any articles related to it. You’ll be surprised. Don’t believe all the “flowery words” to make you buy the product. Don’t take the pills just because thousands of testimonials say it works. YES, you can lose weight but at a PRICE – one you could live to regret later on. As for others who say, “kaya ko to, minor side effect lang yang uhaw and insomnia”… don’t say I didn’t warn you. Stop before it’s too late.

April has come. Unfortunately I did not lose 10 lbs. I stayed on my 5 lb weight loss. However I’m happy that my partner did. There were three of us but the other one lost interest when she discovered baking lol. So however these are some good things that came about of my Pounds off for a Laptop Project. Still a long way from the 30 lbs but working on it.
Neck half inch (argghh)
Chest 1 inch
Arm 1 inch
Waist 2 and 1/2 inches ( yay!!)
Belly 2 inches ( is it belly? pregnancy belly ha ha)
Hips 1 inch
Leg 2 inches
1. My favorite, Hubby has lost a bit of his beer belly ( He doesn’t even drink beer ha ha) After reading Dr. Phil’s book and seeing me exercising like a lunatic. He started doing push ups, running, reading what I’m reading, Buying Men’s Health. So hey, Wifey is waiting for him to get those six pack abs. Will be buying him the Iron gym next week. Plus we get to talk about a lot of new health stuff now like what he read or what I saw on TV. Pretty cool.
2. I am not craving rice. I got used to not eating it. Hubby and the little brat has switched to Brown Rice.
3. We always have fruits and vegetables at home. I realize that living healthy can cost more groceries ha ha.
4. Even when eating out. I was at Spiral the other day for breakfast. I ate mostly salads. What a waste of free breakfast buffet ha ha. I did try some chef special and fresh juices.
5. Clothes that used to not fit me fits just right now. I think that’s the best part. Bulges are slowly slowly however very slowly thinning out and they are not biting into my waistband any longer. If my clothes could speak before they were probably cyring “Set us free!!” Now, actually I sometimes need a belt. Yeeee haaaa…
6. I’m going to try those Radio Frequency deals. Read they’re really effective in getting rid of fats that cannot be removed by diet because they’re stuck at the epidermis. We’ll see how that goes.
7. Turbo Jam now has become easy for me. I exercise 6x a week minimum 30 mins maximum 45. Yesterday we came home late and hubby was amazed that I still have the strength to do Pilates for 40 minutes.
Lucky 7 yes? Well and good.
Now I’m not going to step on the weighing scale for a month. Read that on BoB Greene’s Best Life Diet.
See how that goes. Wish me luck!!!
I’ve been doing the Pounds off for a Laptop or a netbook project. I also dragged a couple of my friends to do the weight loss challenge with me however they provide their own incentive ha ha. So now I am happy to announce that 2 out of 3 have lost weight. The other one is not blogging so I don’t know if that affects everything. I do think when you write down things like listing the food you eat and logging in your exercise minutes do help in keeping you on track. I lost 5 lbs yay!! I’m not really much into posting pictures of myself but maybe one day I will. Here’s what Lakwatserang Flipflops has to say…
Finally got the weighing scale and tape measure…stepped on it…tadaaa!!! 7 lbs lighter…YAHOOO!!! After almost 4 weeks of …read more here
So hey there’s hope yet and if we do this for a year and maintenance onwards after reaching our weight goal (mine is 25 lbs more) I’d bet you we can join beauty pageants in no time…lol
>Do you know your waist to hip ratio? This will determine if you need to lose weight or not.
Grab a tape measure
1. Measure your waist a little bit above your belly button.
2. Measure the widest part of your hips.
3. Divide the waist inches measurement by the one you got for your hips.
Women should have .80 and men .90 ideally. The lower the better. So if you fall short. Might be time to think of exercising because you might be a candidate for heart disease, diabetes etc etc etc…
Well hey, happy now that some of my exploding jeans waistbands fit just right. Still a big momma but hey that shows progress. Even hubby is now working out, still trying to instill in him the benefits of eating more greens. Happy and healthy that’s where we should all be.
>The good news here is Hubby started reading Dr. Phil’s book ha ha. In the morning he started exercising too. He researched some exercises he can do without weights like push ups etc. The 2 year old knows everyday there should be exercise time so I guess that’s good so when she grows up she won’t be chubby like mommy.As for me, I have a loooong way to go but hopefully I’ll get something out of it. 8)
