Still three digits

Living in my lovely home land Kuwait doesnt help much in reducing ones weight. At work we meet over we visit friends we have to eat what is served, we visit the family we eat as well, a long lost friend we deffinetly go out for dinner to catch up. In simple words life in Kuwait revolves around the table or more correct around the colorful competitive dishes from the lastest home made goods.

6 years ago when my size was 4 sizes smaller than today u was proud to eat out for all the healthy green choices available on the menu. Today, the healthiest dish would either have hidden sugars or mayo. You have to admit its not easy loosing weight i. This country.

Trail and dailluir this is what my lofe has been like for the past 6 years. Today am close to big O and not ready for anymore loses unless they are Kg’s

Diet and Marriage

 

One thing i learned out of this experience, marriage and diet don’t go together..  specially when  your spouse is a great cook and his part time job is in-home chef, there is no way on earth i can lose this fat.Yet, Exercise and marriage work VERY WELL together , he nags alot.. i hit the gym and then we are happy .

Now i am on the 1400 cal diet, Thank god i can taste his yummy food, keeping a written diary of my food intake, fat grams per day and grams of carbohydrates per day. One thing shocked me, a subway tuna sandwich has 30 grams of fat, imagine you are eating two table spoons of butter .

I am aware of my food, i am aware of that i put into my stomach, we really need to get nutrition fact on all of our food in Kuwait, that’s the only way to know.

I noticed Toast has sugar, as well as fish fingers. Citric Acid, and other chemicals play an important role in slowing ones metabolism and  helps the fat to be stored instead of burned.

My sweet Dietitian gave me a pedometer which is always attached to my waist from the time i wake up until i sleep, i should have 10,000 steps per day.. and my steps range between 3,000 to 7,000 if i walked alot that day. This means i need 1:30 hours of walking daily just to reach 7,000 steps.
