Hello! I just wanted to share my story on how I was able to trim down. My height is only 5'2 and my weight reached 122 lbs. Based on the research I made, my ideal weight should only be around 100-105 lbs. So I started to eat less like 1 cup of rice a day from 3-4 cups a day (equivalent to 3 meals). Then along with that, I also worked out at home. I did 30-50 sit ups a day and other toning exercises. After a week, I checked on my weight and yes, I lose 4 lbs. It helped me to be more determined and was able to set and reach my target. From 1 cup of rice a day to 1/2 cup then to no rice during weekdays. Sat and Sun were my cheat days. During no rice days, I only had 1 cup of soup and slices of fruits. To make me more motivated too, I was reading different magazines and checking on the photos of different models who were wearin' sexy dresses and swim suits. I said to myself that one day I would be able to wear those too, lol. Sounds funny but that was how I became more determined to reach my target weight. So to shorten the story, after 3 months of diet and exercise, my weight dropped to 96 lbs. When it became stable, I was able to eat regular meals again without gaining a single pound. So it's a matter of setting of goals, motivation and discipline.
That story was 8 years ago
When I gave birth to my 2nd daughter, I was not able to go back to my old figure. In short, I became over weight again and it was hard for me to trim down even though I was working out and eating less. So I was forced to try dietary supplements. And fortunately, they were helpful...plus with proper control and discipline. I may not be able to go back to 46-48 kg, but at least it's helping me to control weight gain. :-)
