This is the 8th month of my weight loss journey.
The month is April. The year 2021. Today is the first day.
I want to see if I can lose the flab without supplements.
That is the mission this month.
Weight loss journey month 8 Week 1
I haven’t been doing much cardio as of late. I’ve been concentrating on my strength training.
As a result, there is no weight loss.
One thing I’ve noticed is that it’s harder to fight my sugar cravings as well as stuffing myself silly in every meal.

Did I mention I hate gatherings?
I love my family and friends but parties are one of the biggest saboteurs of my weight loss journey.
You already know that I’m a glutton. I can eat.
Even worse when it comes to sweets. One look at Krispy Kreme donuts and I’m hook.
One taste of sweet caramel and I’m in heaven binge eating.
I can feel the difference without Green Coffee.
We had to go attend an Easter gathering our friends prepared for their family and friends.
There were sweets, plenty of food, crisps. I couldn’t stop myself from eating the whole day. Not to mention that I had 4 cups of coffee.
I don’t know how many chocolate eggs I had that day. Too many to count.
There was baklava, mud cake, lamingtons, cheesecakes, ice cream, pavlova, and some I can’t remember.
It was fun but not great when trying to lose weight. Gatherings can put a road block to your health journey.
That’s why it’s important to have a diet we can stick to for the rest of our life.
If you’re just going to on a diet that is hard to sustain, you’ll go back to square one guaranteed.
I am not off to a good start. Hope the second week brings better tidings and have more self control over the food I eat.

Today is Sunday and marks the end of week 2 of my weight loss journey.
Yesterday was a celebration of my brother in law’s birth.
And of course, there were many, many, food.
KFC was on the menu, plenty of crispy chicken drumsticks with the familiar KFC flavor.
I used to love KFC so much that every time I had it I always say I can have KFC every single day.
And one week I did. All I ate was KFC and got so sick of it, I couldn’t look at chicken meat for a month.
To top off the night, there was deep fried ice cream and thick and creamy caramel cheesecake.
I can’t show you photos because I gobbled the cake up before taking one.
April 30, Friday
My weight hasn’t gone down at all, woefully gained a kilo this month.
I’m hoping next month, May, I can turn things around.
The struggle is real.
