Wednesday: Waiting & Weight-ing

It is Wednesday. Almost half the week has gone past. This week, in addition to the weekend, there is the additional anticipation of the celebrations for Christmas at the beginning of the weekend. It is a good time to reminisce and also to look forward to new things.

On Christmas Eve, we attend the crib service, where we sing carols and interact with others ( who can manage to come with their busy schedules) and enjoy the company of little children, who are given gifts. The twilight hours are magical.


For my personal journey of weight loss, I am at 87 kgs now. I have been walking everyday for a minimum of one hour, ever since the weather has become good to walk. I have decided to walk no matter what, in whatever weather. In the heat of summer, where temperatures reach up to 50 C in the shade, this might get difficult, but I am going to do it. I am not sure if I am losing weight, yet, but yes, I am aching all over.

I am going to start a diet, ( I know I mustn’t diet) but I just need a quick jumpstart. It has been a roller coaster ride since my resolution to lose weight when I was 90 kgs.

Diet plan

I have been through the Juicing Diet- I lost about 5 kilos on this diet but then gave up( as I usually do) because my juicer gave up on me.

Then I was travelling in November, so everything went for a six. Ever since I returned from Boston, I have been jet lagged; staying awake at night and sleepy in the day time. The sleepiness at odd hours brought a lot of changes in me- a severe sugar craving for sugar in tea ( which I had given up almost a year earlier), sweets ( chocolates and any other thing that was sweet) and then sleeping in my office. These binges are still going on, though it is more than a month, since I returned from the US.

I am trying to lose about 7 kgs urgently, through the Rosemary Conley Diet plan. My goal is to lose 7 kgs by January 23rd, 2016. I am writing my goals down as Danny would recommend. In addition, I will be doing a few strength exercises and of course the daily walks.

So I wait and watch.

    1. Really Misty ? It takes all my balancing powers and my will power to stay on the treadmill without falling- I have one of those thin and narrow treadmills, that didn’t cost too much. I would be scared to multitask on a treadmill.

  1. Keep walking and keep eating healthy. I hope you do not go on a diet, because once you ease off – the weight gain is horrible. Instead, make it a lifestyle change – no refined sugar, limited alcohol, wholesome food, smaller meals and light dinners. Diets simply confuse your body and ruin the metabolism

  2. it is most difficult!! Keep working on the measurements, those are likely to show the difference before the scale. The walking sounds excellent! And Prajakta is right, diets confuse the body when you go back to regular eating. I suggest the smaller portions as well. In the end, eating less is what is going to help.

      1. My first running shoes were Ryka from Amazon, and now I use them for walking. Depends on your foot. The Ryka fit firmly around the heel, and have a wide toe area, which is great for me, as I have rather wide feet (but small, size 5ish). YOu want something big enough to let your foot expand a bit as you walk, but not going to rub because your foot slides around. Some stores will let you return them even after wearing, so you can try them for a walk or two. IF not, then wear them around the store a bit for a comfort check.

  3. Hi Susie45,
    I appreciate your candor about your diet and exercise. I am trying to lose weight as well, and to treat my body better. If you would be interested in a “diet” buddy, I would be happy to have a person to connect with so we might support each other on this journey.


      1. OK, Susie! Let’s do it. Due to the public nature of my work, I have tried to keep my name off my blog. Having said that, for purposes of friendship would you be ok with calling me lj?

      2. That was courageous of you to do! I don’t know if this would be helpful for you, but I set a goal this year to walk the equivalent of the Appalachian trail. (2160 miles – I think that is about 3476 kilometers)
        I won’t make it, I’m at 1900/3057, but I’m going to set a new goal for 2016- and start as soon as I finish my current one. Additionally I tried to learn about the Appalachian trail, so it’s been good for my body and mind.
