Day 9

Hey girls!
Today is day 9... and I'm feeling pretty good I think. I'm still hurting from Wednesday... I can barely squat to sit cause my legs hurt so much. AnywhoOOoO~

If you missed out on my recent update video.. I weighed in on Wednesday.
Last week I was 176..
this week I weighed in at:

It's crazy right?! Who would've thought... 6.6 pounds!!!!! Typically that sort of weight loss is something you see on Biggest Loser, not at home!

This just proves that with hard work and dedication it's VERY POSSIBLE to lose weight...
I do have to say though, that I am a bit worried that some of the younger girls watching me might be doing what I'm doing except maybe.. not eating much at all... or something like that..
I just want you guys to know that I do NOT eat any LESS than 1200 calories a day. I hope that for those of you that are on this journey with me.. you're doing it the right way :) It's possible!! I promise!! You just have to be true to yourself and work hard! No excuses!!! I would hate knowing that my weight loss would make someone... cut corners... does that make sense?

I was talking to my mom yesterday... and how she really needs to lose weight.. not to get skinny but because she's borderline diabetic. My mom's problem is not so much exercising but more so her eating habits. Statistics wise, she's roughly 5'2 and about 180.. it worries me ALOT. So... oddly at her weight.. you would think it's because she's eating all sorts of junk and all day at that right? Wrong. She only eats once a day because she's so busy.. literally. So I'm pretty sure the reason why she's overweight is because she only eats once a day.

Ok to breakdown this is how it works.. by eating once a day.. your body knowwwwwsss that you're not going to feed it anything.. so it stores everything you eat straight into your storage fat.. so that it can survive. Your metabolism slowsssss downnnnnn almost like when you sleep... and it remains that way until you feed it. Now.. I'm almost positive that if my mom eat 3-5 times a day... and even 1600-1800 calories she would start losing weight. Your metabolism kicks in when you keep feeding it..... the more often you feed it.. the faster your body metabolizes the food.. which is whyyy skinnny people who eat ALOTTTTT don't gain weight! Their metabolism is soooo high that it just processes all the food instantly.. (which is why it comes out of their butt so fast too LOL).

I think this is also the reason I got the numbers I did this week..
Last year when I lost weight... I did cardio MUCH longer at the gym... and I ate less... anddddd I didn't eat as frequent during the day... so I lost about... 3 pounds a week.. roughly.. but this time.. I'm doing lessss cardio.. and eating more.. and I'm losing more!

okkkkkk enough with the jibber..... lol. sorry >.<

So... I haven't posted any pictures in a while.. so I'm going to show you guys a few random from the last few months.. enjoy :)

Congrats girl again!!! I'm proud of you! Yes, I agree... I used to eat hella lot... about 5 big meals a day, before college started and then all of a sudden, I only ate two times a day and then I started to gain like crazy! Oh em gee. It was crazy! I had no idea where all the weight was coming from until I figured it out. I agree, one of my aunt only eats once a day and drink dark coffee throughout the day when she's at work. She eat tons of grapefruits when she have the time but she was always, somewhat big.

Congrats on the weight loss! I know how hard it is to keep motivated and consistent.It always feels good when u step on the scale and the numbers keep dropping. Better yet, when the jeans feel looser too! ;)

Super lovely blog!

Congratulations ^^I wish I was less lazy and just could do the same as you, anyway seeing such enthusiasm in your weight loss journey cheers me up... I know that being Korean you might have some kind of pressure... I do too... but probably it's kinda different as I'm an adoptee and live and Europe ( but tell that to the guys here who think all asian women are or should be as thin as a lollipop stick). So keep your head up and keep giving us hope ( and good make up tutorials ^^)

You shouldnt be eating under 2000 calories a day girl. and 6.6 lbs in a week is way, way too much. Im willing to bed that much of that was muscle loss, and I can GUARANTEE that you wont get MAINTAINABLE results. I dont want to be too critical but it really is sad that girls feel the meed to starve themselves with so few calories (anything under 1500 is WAY TOO LOW) and doing far too much cardio. Eat more, stop f-ing up your metabolism more, and LIFT HEAVY at the gym. I guarantee you will have much, MUCH better results.

omg i just wrote a whole long comment and the internet didn't work so now i have to write it again T_T

anyways all i wanted to say was that you inspire me so much in wanting to lose weight. i started to exercise a few days ago because i need to push myself to lose weight otherwise it will never happen. you are really lucky to have a boyfriend who accepts you for who you are :)

a few questions if you don't mind me asking; how many minutes/hours of exercise do you do each day? and what is your ideal weight you want to be?

anyways good luck in losing weight and hopefully i will be able to achieve this goal too!
