A confession.

Okay.

Maybe it's better if I just let it be known.
Instead of keeping it to myself.




Yes, everyone. I am prepared to let it out. I just think it's better this way.















I am going on a diet.




Don't laugh!
I know I have been saying that I will go on one for ages, and well, let's just say Tim Tams still made their way into grocery basket, but this time I am serious.
I have put on more than 5kgs since I came to Melbourne!!!
And it's time to shed them off.


And the reason why I am revealing it here is 'cause, well, if I let everyone know, then I will be sort of forced to adhere to my diet regime, y'know? By broadcasting to everyone that I'm on a diet, I will feel the pressure to actually show some results.
Like, if a friend (who reads my blog, presumably) sees me one month from now, and upon seeing the still-pudgy me, will ask me accusingly, "Eh, I thought you were supposed to be on a diet?"
Yes, the idea of the burning shame, and the embarrassment of not succeeding in losing weight..
That's my burning fire, my biggest motivation. -_-
Or at least that's what women magazines suggest, haha. :P




Anyway, I have been good for the past 3 days-- went to the gym yesterday and the day before, very little carbs (I swear, those things are the MOST EVIL OF THEM ALL), no snacks, no supper, no candies. :)



My lunch for today...

Barramundi fillet (pan fried), with potato pancake, fresh salad and sour cream.


We went to Pancake Parlor, and I am very happy with my order (a little small, but hey, I am a woman on a diet after all). The fish was delish, and and and! I didn't touch the sour cream, and I only had half of the potato pancake (which was about the size of my palm).

Cottage fries.


It doesn't look like the tradition cottage fries right! It's actually organic spiced potatoes sauteed/roasted to perfection, with the infamous dollop of Pancake Parlor sour cream (sour cream has never tasted this good!). It was Jac's side order, and I always always always steal at least one or two pieces, but today, I refrained. :)

Jac and I at the bus stop. It's a conspiracy I am telling you! Why she made her face looked small, and mine so big.

Just another day in spring. :)

This is for the people who egged me to show them my new bag. ;)





At Pancake Parlor:

I was very amused, 'cause I took 3,4 shots of Jac (at different times), and she constantly had her arms placed in a perpendicular manner (as shown above)!

So I copied her. :P



And I have something to confess! T_T
The whole reason why we went out (Chadstone, if you have to know) was 'cause my need to shop was TOO TOO INTENSE.
My law assignment is still dangling and unfinished, but shopping came first. -_-

Our modal for the day! Or rather, Jac's modal. T___T
That was the amount that I owed her, and paid her back. T_____T
100AUD okay... T_____T
Don't ask me why I owe her so much money, shush.

My arm looks funny here.




And here's a picture of me in the fitting room!

how does jac eat so much and stay that size lah?

can tell me where her dress is from?

miss vanity said...

if it makes you feel any better i put on 10 kgs when i first came to Melbourne ... that was 4 years ago. Im still tryin to shed the weight. :S

5kgs should be nothing.

Anonymous said...

^how does comparing make a difference. people should diet for themselves. GOOD ON YOU hui wen.

miss vanity said...

whooops ... i was meaning to say that she can do it since the whole gym routine is a go.

technically not talking in comparative terms but more of just letting her know shes not alone in the whole weight gain issue.

xahra said...

Aiyo! You look lovely! I totally prefer the first picture to the second (the second pic is scarily Keira Knightly like). Nevertheless, if losing weight is what your heart desires, all the best with it :)

Was remembering my old ambition of getting a six-pack... wonder what happened to that... realized I'm too lazy :P

HI HUI WEN!

revel in me said...

aud: 1. Since when I said my bag got bamboo!! Oh wait wait, the other bag that I mentioned ar! It was too expensive.. T___T

2. Humor is a virtue wtf.

3. Pan fried fattening meh!!! Deep fried only fattening what. :P


anonymous: Hahahaha, she doesn't each much at all! She eats like an ant. A very tiny ant. I swear to god, she eats one bite of rice for dinner only. -____________- But I guess one thing that I appreciate about Jac is that she will still eat junk and desserts, just that she takes them in small cautious amounts. :)

And she got the dress from one of the shops in Chaddy! Though I think you should be able to find variations of it on Bridge Road. =)


miss vanity: You're quite tall! So I think you don't look the slightest bit fat... :) But I am short, y'see, so I just can't carry off the extra weight. T_T And it IS comforting to know that I am not the only one who gained weight after going overseas! T__T


anonymous: I highly doubt she was making comparisons! :) But thank you, dear, wish me luck! :D


xahra: EEEEEKK, I don't want to look like Keira Knightly!!! She's too bony and skinny.. I don't like! *eucchhh* I just need to get more in shape larr.. :) And oh boy, I remember those days when you want a six pack, you couldn't stop counting cheesecake calories, nyahaha! Muahhhss, dear, miss you!!!

revel in me said...

EVERYONE, I HAVE FINISHED MY LAW ASSIGNMENT!!! WOOOOOOOOOOOT!

Ok. *diligently replies comments*

anonymous: Thanks dear! But haha, can you see the whole bag?? :P I might post more pics up sooooon! :D And I am not filthy rich, it's just that being overseas, I have more freedom with how I want to spend my money, 'cause most definitely, all of us get more spending money here as compared to back home. And I worked as a tutor last semester yo! And my dad WILL kill me if he finds out 'bout my bags. -_-


smalls: ASSIGNMENT, DONEEE.. Hello, life! ;)


jing: Eh, you fucking show-ff! But show-off ME, nyehehe.. :P Don't la call me fatty bom bom! T_T Stupid bedebuk. *retaliates wtf*


wanli: Haha, I am not FAT FAT, but pudgy! T__T And are you serious!!! You put on 10kgs??? But you don't look like you did AT ALL! You look really slim and svelte and loooong.. T______T And thanks you, sweetheart, that's such a heartwarming compliment! <333


jaclyn: YOU MOST DEFINITELY EAT MUCH LESS RICE THAN ME! YOU EAT ONE QUARTER OF THE AMOUNT OF RICE THAN I DO, AND I EAT CONSIDERABLY LITTLE RICE ALREADY! AND I ONLY HAVE LEFTOVER RICE WHEN THERE'S NOT ENOUGH LAUK, WHEREAS YOU EAT ONE BITE OF RICE EVERY DAY SINCE WE HAVE LIVED TOGETHER!

But you ate 2 pies in Pie in the Sky lar.. Champion! :D :D :D

I finished my assignment already! SHOPPINGGGG... YUM CHAAAA... KOKO/SHOYA... Bring it on, babeeeeee! <333333333

mustardqueen said...

sue lin said...

No one wud b so mean as to ask "Eh, I thought you were supposed to be on a diet?"... unless they are a guy...

And i gained weight in Melb too. Peaked at 5kg... lost 1kg after ONE day of skiing... supposed to go skiing again. Damn i shud have went

Ps, u dun look like u've gained at all the last time i saw u in Melb central =)

WilZC said...

which is why.. dont go on a diet.. -_-'
unless the term 'diet' hither isnt the.. stereotypical one,,,

revel in me said...

mustardqueen: Pan fried mahhh!! Not deep fried also... And it's FISH! Fish is good.. T___T


sue lin: Really??? Skiing made you lose weight??? I didn't... I put on weight in fact, 'cause we snacked alot.. T_____T
ANd are you trying to say that I have been all along... :'(


wilzc: Well, I think a healthy diet coupled with an exercise regime is the best way to go. No point exercising and working out, but still taking in unhealthy/fattening food, eh? :)
