Amidst the busy-ness of work and post-New Year celebration, I was tagged along to join the project of Department of Health's (DOH) 'Belly Gud for Health' Challenge.
The goal is to trim down the waist. We were advised on what to do and what not to do. Of course, these all boil down to:
- doing exercise
- eating the right amount of food from every food group
- not taking any slimming pills or the likes
- no lipo surgeries too, LOL (only I said that, but true don't you think?)
We had blood chem and an individual menu plan were drawn based on the blood chem's reading. I found out my sugar and cholesterol were a little over boundary, so watch out!
It has been four (4) months and my progress wasn't good - just okay (to give myself a little credit). I didn't follow the instructions above so the development was 'painfully' slow. But if these results go on... I'd reach my ideal weight in two (2) years instead of six (6) months.
I started last January with
102cm waistline and 73.5kg weight
94cm waistline and 70.4kg weight
Oooops... and my ideal weight is 48kg! Really, much work to do.
So I made table at google docs to monitor my development until I reach the ideal. Goodluck to me! (Hoping it won't take years).
