First of all, I want to congratulate Shiva of fatchicgoesslim who has been blessed with a baby boy. May the God almighty bless baby P with health, intelligence and character. Let him be the source of much happiness and pride to Shiva, her husband and other family members. Shiva, you have touched great many lives with your helpful and positive attitude and I am sure God has taken note of all that:-)) Here is wishing the very best to you and your family.
Now for an update from me....
After moving to Dubai and
So not surprisingly, my weight hovered between 78.3-78.9, the last four weeks (which I realize is an improvement over 79.2, 79.7 and 80.2, which was what I weighed previously). Yesterday it was back to 78.3. Yes ji, that is an improvement from 80.2 but dil maange more. I am trying to eat more vegetables and fruits. I have to get used to the idea that I cannot have watermelon when it costs the equivalent of 260 INR and that papaya from Thailand does not come anywhere near the Indian one and do not even get me started on the topic of mangoes. Do I sound like a xenophobic food-snob?
During Ramadan, I did not exercise. I have now started exercising. It is too hot to exercise outside during the day, but I go on a walk (at moderate pace) for around 45 minutes in the evening/night at the nearby park and manage to do that 4 times a week. I have also re-started the leslie sansone tapes – 30 mins, 5 days a week. I think I will be good (for the time being) if I keep up with this exercise routine.
I have stopped measuring and logging food intake. I will do that from tomorrow onward.
So, ladies and gentlemen, boys and girls, I have not given up on the weight loss regimen or this blog. So please do come, read and comment
