Now that I’ve managed to shed off for good the 1.5 kg of stubborn fat gained after the birth of my third daughter 11 years ago, I am trying hard to maintain that weight.. which fluctuates between 44 kg – 44.8 kg. Standing at 158cm, my weight had been stagnant at 46+ kg for over 10 years. It’s not easy to maintain my weight at my ideal number and it involves a LOT of hard work and sacrifices. As we age, our metabolic rate slows down. It gets sluggish when we don’t exercise or are sedentary. It’s important to keep ourselves active all day long to keep the metabolic rate going. I’ve recently increased my strength training duration and variety every morning five times a week. I spend 15-20 minutes on strength training and lower abdomen exercises and 30 minutes on brisk walking / jogging. As I keep doing it, I find that my stamina gets better and I burn energy faster throughout the day. I can feel it as I get hungry faster. I am also trying to cut out bread from my diet and this is not easy as bread has been my staple since the beginning of time!
I had a very low carb breakfast yesterday, consisting of pistachios, black skin groundnuts, a quarter of avocado, one hard-boiled egg with organic shoyu and a small handful of Simply Fit 7-cheese crackers from Melaleuca.
I believe anyone can loose weight and stick to their ideal weight. All you need is a little time and dedication for exercise several times a week, a will power to turn your head away from high carb foods, REDUCE your food portion and you’ll see magic on the scale! 💃🏽
