How I Lose Weight and My Update on April Challenge

19:04

Hi guys!!

Back with a post in between my finals!
Oooppsss!! =0!!

I'm gonna update about my weight loss from the April Challenge.
If you guys didn't know what I'm talking about, here's the link. =)

I gain quite an amount of weight when I went for my holiday trip last year in Australia, and also during Chinese New Year.
So the determination to lose down my weight increases more!
And here's how I did it!



From my last post, many people were asking me to update on the results of this challenge, so here it is. =)

On the 1st of April onwards I was on this challenge, the No Junk Food Challenge.
I was not suppose to eat any types of the junk food on the list above for 21 Days.
But I extend it to a month, so it is around 30 days.
Because I know that I'll have a few cheat days.

It's not easy to stop eating junk food suddenly.
And junk food is something that everyone loves, including me.
So that's why I had a few cheat days for myself to enjoy some junk food. =)
*Smart!!* *smirk*
I mean come on, I even went out with my friend Nicole for a dessert day!!

My cheat days are usually once per week. Just in case you guys are wondering.

In the month of April, I also did a '2 meal diet a day'.
I do believe that breakfast is the most important meal of the day.
Cause you were sleeping for 8 hours straight without any food intake into your body.
So, your body needs the food to gain energy to start the day! =)

I was never a person who eats breakfast in the morning too.
I'll just make one cup of milo and just go to school.
So, if I do have a 8am class in school, I'll drink a cup of milo and head to school.
Then during my class break at around 9am or 10am, I'll go over to my school cafe and buy a wholemeal sandwich.
At least is wholemeal *shurg*

After that, I won't eat lunch anymore.
Since I'm still full from my brunch, I'll just skip lunch time.
Then, I'll get a cup of yoghurt when I'm hungry which is around 4pm+.
Or any healthy snacks, like fruits and smoothies.
I also try to stay away from processed meat like ham, sausages... and also high sodium food like cup noodles.

So during dinner time, I try to eat no carbs, so just vegetables, meats and fruits.
With eating these less food, I try to drink more water instead.
As what everyone says, drink 8 cups of water a day.
8 cups of water = 1.89L
So I drink about 2 and a half of 750mL bottle in average.

I lost about 4kg, in this one month with the help of this challenge and the diet.
I do have a few cheat days of eating junk food or more food in general.
Is not like I can't eat junk food forever in my whole life.
I'm just trying to eat healthily, I still do eat ice creams, and popcorns once in a while. =D
Just to treat myself.
It is okay to eat junk food once in a while, but don't eat them too often.
When you feel like eating them, then just eat them, if not, then don't.

I do have temptation during this challenge.
I have friends asking me whether I want some sweets or snacks, the temptation of having them and putting them into your mouth!! It's so hard!
But yet, determination is a must in this challenges and diet.
So, try your best!!

I'm never a professional in this, and I'm only writing this through my own experience.
So ya. =)

And here's my update on my 'April No Junk Food Challenge' and on how I lost weight.
I lost some weight on my thighs and the collar bone area, so is my tummy area.
I'm so happy that my collar bone is much obvious now. =D *happy face!*
So ya, I'm proud of myself! =)

If you guys want to try out with this, tell me how it goes.
But remember, everybody's body is different so the outcome may be different too. =)




Love Me!! XOXO

  4. glad that you've managed to lose the pounds! but skipping meals isn't the best way to do it. going on a calorie deficit is not the long term solution to a healthy body, so you better make sure you're at least eating enough!

    1. For me healthy snacks are usually the usual like fruits and yogurts. Munch on fruits is the best! =D It will make you full and satisfied your crave for sugar =)

  11. I did the "no junk food challenge", too. It was effective in help me lose weight. However, I really do not really so much on losing weight. I prefer losing inches off the waistline.

  17. Ahhhh youth! To be able to lose weight with mainly food control. Those were the days. These days I have to watch the food AND ensure I do some form of exercise three times a week to CONTROL weight gain. Sigh!
