Lifestyle Change Day 21: Weigh-in Week 3

Hello hello...

A lot of things happened to me today. I weighed myself early in the morning and found that I lost 1kg. Yay! I didn't achieve my goal of 5kgs for the month of April but 4kgs in 3 weeks is pretty awesome.

That afternoon my sister had just collected her digital weighing acale. Now my weighing scale at home is very old and obviously is not as accurate as a brand new digital one. When I hopped on the latter it showed that I had only lost 1.8 kgs. I was devastated. All that hard work for 3 weeks and I only lost 1.8kgs? I felt pissed and frustrated.

On top of that my phone suddenly acted out on me and I became very stressed out. The emotional eater in me kicked in. That night I ate 2 prathas instead of my usual 1 1/2, I didn't keep close tabs on my water and vegetable intake. I didn't want to care anymore!

It was only after dinner that I trully calmed down *bukan pura2 jak calm down* and sat down to think. Sure, I only lost that much but it's still a loss right? Losing that much weight totally beats gaining it. I have 2 choices now. Either I continue to work hard and lose weight (albeit, slowly) or I could give up and just eat all I want, totally wasting my hard effort the past 3 weeks. The choice is mine.

Another thing is that all of us (me, my sister and my mum) weight 2kgs more on the digital scale than our old scale. Could it be that my starting weight was actually 2kgs more than I thought and so I really did lose 4kgs anyway? If the old scale is consistently 2kgs 'wrongly less', I think I can still use it to check my progress. After all, I measured my starting weight using the old scale so I might as well continue to use it as reference right?

I didn't keep track of the time I ate today (I didn't want to care remember?) but check out my log for today anyways:


Breakfast: 2 slices of white bread toast, 1 slice of Cheddar cheese, 1 mug of protein, 1 apple and black soyabean drink.

This is all for now. Cheers!
