Hello everyone! I am not here for the past days. This is because I am not feeling good and I am nervous too. Nervous because I am experiencing some symptoms of something I do not know. And it is hard to think and think about it. Though it is gone now, I am still giving it a few days to have myself check because I am still waiting for my monthly period. But due to this experience, I have done a lot of thinking. My kids are still young and my husband cannot take care of them all alone so I decided to take care of my body more. To be more physically and spiritually well. And for this, I set a new goal for my life. I have to lose 40 lbs before I turn 40 years old early next year. That gives me 5 months. And as they say, life begins at 40. And a lot of this that you usually feel are aging and symptoms of getting old. And I do not want that. So I a hoping for the new healthy me next year! Wish me all luck!

What is your approach to losing weight? they say exercising is far better than dieting. Dieting will make you lose weight in all the wrong places.

I started my little step today. Yes, I think exercise with proper diet will work for all of us. I started the walk a mile exercise. and also I plan to eat less rice and more veggies. I hope and pray that it will work.

@allknowing I love chocolates and this is one big temptation for me. Right now, I am trying to balance everything. Hope it will go well.

Yes, it is really tough. I am still struggling now. I am not sure if I lose weight already but I am establishing my discipline first on food and exercising everyday. For a week now, I have not eaten rice for dinner.

@rakski that's good on you. I always told myself not to take rice on dinner but sometimes I felt so hungry and can't go on the night without some rice.. now I'm trying boxing for an hour, hope it helps in losing weight before Christmas.

Yes, do it while you can . It's hard to age and be fat . Being fat triggers a lot of sickness actually . So good luck.

40 lbs in 5 months is not very practical unless you go through rigorous routine of exercise and diet. Do it slowly and steadily. Best wishes to you.

I wish you the best of health as long as you know what foods will keep you in perfect weight for your height, without being susceptible to any cancer, and fully aware of all the pollutants around you to keep your immune system in check !

oh yes, thank you. I try to eat lot of fruits and veggies recently and lessen my rice especially at dinner. It is a staple food for us here. I am also disciplining myself to exercise everyday.

I do wish you luck, that's quite a goal - 40 lbs will take some shifting.

yes, I know it is quite some goal but I hope I will get there. I am just thinking that my health should get better when I am 40 than in most of my friends that when they turn 40, they felt a lot of health problems
