I lost 25+ pounds since July 2009. That’s a slow, bittersweet process. I didn’t participate in any weight losing programs. The fats were burned because of:
- I worked hard in my last year of undergrad – to boost up my grade so I could have a better chance of getting into grad school. (If I knew working hard was such a rewarding process, from both a weight losing and GPA gaining perspective, I would have worked really hard since 1st year of university, sign…)
- Stomach issues – I just found I have mild to moderate acid reflux (GERD) from my recent body check. But I believe that’s school related. Because I had so many night classes last term, I always ate so late at night, and slept before the food was properly digested.
- “Healthy diet” – I consumed tons of oatmeal since the early spring of this year, and meanwhile I lost 15 pounds. I love it because it’s quick to prepare and, to me, very tasty. Maybe oatmeal is the secret weight losing ingredient?
- I go to the gym, irregularly, and trying my best to visit the gym at least 3 times a week. Honestly, I think exercising alone is not the best/fastest way to lose weight, but it helps to shape the body.
My target is 110 lbs – 10 more pounds of fat to be burned. I have to admit that it’s hard for me. Weight losing requires pressure, patience and persistence.
