Post by happy101 » Tue, 28 Aug 2012 6:10 pm

maybe we can share stories, tips, etc.

it seems like I only can manage to lose 1 inch over slightly 1 month now, by eating 1 (dinner only) meal a day. the rest of the day, stealing snacks, cigarettes and fruits here and there just to get rid of the pangs. The fats on my limbs, neck, face, were a huge success however the bulge stomach always been a challenge (and disappointment).

I wonder how and the fastest way to do this. (Not really into those liposuctions, and whatever not, prefer to achieve this naturally on my own).

That sounds like a terrible diet, no wonder it isn't working! you tried eating 3-4 meals a day of healthy food in smaller portions that you are used to?

never thought of that however that does make a lot of sense scientifically.

I can see the problem that once I start a meal proper, no matter how small at first, it probably be second, third, fourth, etc helpings until I finally realised. Maybe that's why I guess dont even dare to start a meal during the day. The snacks I mentioned - jacobs, choco, mac fruity ice-creams and the latest favourites - the local "kro-poke" deep-fried shrimp crackers, samosa triangles during the day, I guess that adds to the terrible diet, thanks for pointing that out.

Now that I mention those, need to go out for awhile to get those...be back soon.

Try jog, for at least 30 minutes on daily basis.

And this later thread which is still active with general advice and some alternative views, some garbage and some so-so, as well as insights to my program as well.

I started my weight loss journey at 260 lbs two years ago. Yesterday I weighed in at 166 lbs. i used no tricks or gimmicks. I did push ups, sit ups and ran. I also reduced my portion size which was easier when I moved to Singapore.

Another vote here for sensible meals (low carb, high fiber, reasonable protein...that sort of thing) and exercise. Never ever go on a starvation diet; just ask the Muslims about weight after Ramadan.

thanks everyone. yea, now that you mention, i been observing the Muslims especially the ladies, are as big nonetheless, still I'm equally no better.

sundaystaple - been reading your thread. That's some awesome story you gave. Thank you. Made me recall my own service time: "never fail the soldier next to you".... "never fail your comrades"..."he aint heavy, he's my brother...." perhaps that's the motivation trick I need now. Salute.

thank you very much.

As i read, what hits me is the purpose+discipline which i have luxuriated over years and time. Now, it seems like the ram up there been replaced with anything goes taste buds - now, im beginning to think all that acronyms you gave HBP, etc, some enemy catching on if I don't start moving. But once started, its always that losing grip, getting it back, losing grip, etc. maybe, if I re-focus on creating mental pictures to hang on to, might just be able to trick myself into health, every moment when grip is slipping. I know it can be done. The matter is more of mental one than physical, the impressions I get and feel from the first link thread. No body and health deserve to be ruined, except only second chances.
