Yo-Yo Slimming Diary - Page 6

Determination + Self-Discipline

There were friends who are pretty sure that I’ll give up within a few months because they, themselves are one of those who had given up! I did doubt about myself too on whether I can stick with my planning of going 2-3 times a week. But I vowed to myself that I must not give up halfway because I have paid for it!! Rawr….. Can’t put my hard-earned money to waste.

Determination and self-discipline plays a very important role to keep myself in track. After all, going to gym after work is quite tiring sometimes. There are times when my brain will send a signal to tell me that “Dear, you are tired, let’s go home and sleep” but what I’ll do is… ignore it, stuff my feet into the sports shoe and walk into the dance studio (yawning). Because I believe that once I succumb to my laziness, I will skip classes over and over again and eventually give up just like many other people did. Till today, I managed to stick to my schedule of going to gym 2 times a week.

My True Fitness

Since I moved to Subang, I have spotted this fitness centre at Taipan. One day when I’m wandering around Taipan during lunch time, I suddenly have the urge to enquiry about their membership fees. So I walk into their reception area and in less than 5 minutes later, a consultant approached me. As usual procedure, he asked me some details and questions according to the survey form. After some chit chat, he brought me to look around at their dance studio, fitting room as well as their equipments and facilities. Oh by the way, he is a cute Taiwanese guy who can speak fluent English :D Oh my… much better than mine ok. *paiseh* Alright, the most important question arise - the membership fees!

Me: Ok, cut the crap. The most important question now, how much is the membership fees?

Consultant: (Took out some information sheet and start explaining their “marked up” fees with all sorts of registration fees, etc – which sum up to around RM230++ per month)

Me: *shocked & blur* Huh, but my aunt told me it’s around RM130 per month only. She is one of the True Fitness members.

Consultant: Errmmm, may I have your aunt’s name? Let me check it for you.

After a while…

Consultant: Ohh.. your aunt took our promotion package during Hari Raya last year. Hmm, this way.. I can “do” it for you but you have to sign for 2 years at least.

Me: 2 years?? Can I sign up for 1 year instead? Because……

Consultant: I’m sorry, you’ll need to sign up for 2 years in order to get this promotional package.

Me: (Thinking hard……..)

Consultant: You can pay by installment, etc etc….. What credit card do you have?

Me: (Reluctantly took out my credit card)

And voila!! I owe yet another RM3.3k of debts! Yikes!

I started to lose weight the next second onwards (amazing!) – because thinking of my new sum of debts alone was more than enough to make me sweating allover. = =

Let’s be fat & merry, not!

Frankly, being fat for more than 800 days after that, I wasn’t “merry” at all. My rather plump figure brought my self-confident to the lowest point. I had difficulties in buying clothes but at the same time, I had to stock up my wardrobe with lots of new clothes and skirts simply because I can’t fit in into my old clothes already. I need to go for a size 42 (the biggest size) skirt at MNG, Topshop or Zara. And I have to avoid wearing pants or jeans as well due to my big hips. To cover my fleshy arms, I bought a few pieces of cropped jacket (which was quite popular then, luckily~) to go with my sleeveless tops. Sobz, how I hate my bulging tummy, arms and butt! Imagine, a girl in her early 20’s - young, bubbly and (not so) pretty.. But yet, she can’t enjoy all the pretty clothes in the world. Moreover, my biggest obsession is not shoes or handbags or bling blings but clothes.

I can’t forget this particular comment from a lady at a flea market at Singapore… “I think you couldn’t fit into this top one lah..” in an impolite tone. Her comment really hits me hard. At times, honesty is cruel.

Besides, my low self-esteem affected my overall social life too. Not wanting to hear nasty comment, I stay away from all type of gatherings as much as I can. Every time when I get comments like “Eh, you fat already leh…bla..” I will just laugh it off and pretend I don’t mind but deep down inside, I’m frustrated.

Tease and Sneeze

While I’m happily enjoying my free lunch everyday, my flesh is happily growing too. Colleagues started to make fun of my plump figure. Worst still, one (guy) called me “Fei poh”. How kind of him ~ They use me as a bad example to warn others or themselves not to overeat. *thank you* -_- I know that I need to control my diet once again. But my detox plan isn’t working as well as I planned it to be. I love vegetables but eating it every meal without any seasoning for a few days in a row, wasn’t a good idea at all. My energy level was low and I ended up feeling tired and dizzy. Drinking meal replacement juices doesn’t make me feel any better.

“Your blood pressure is low” said doctor. These few words gleefully ended my detox plan. In fact, I felt relieved thinking of I don’t need to continue on that dreadful detox diet anymore! No more tasteless steam vege, no more gulping down a big glass of detox tea after every meal, no more stomach ache, no more mood swings….
Welcome back, my beloved rice! Well, what can I say? I failed tremendously… Never mind, I have decided to be fat and merry :D
