Diets

I weighed myself on Sona's scales the other day and despite his 'discounts' I still couldn't budge that damn needle from the 65 kg mark.

So I decided to go on a diet, right after I finished my kebab-paratha-mutton biriyani dinner. The next morning seemed like a good time to start.

I don't think I've eaten so much and such unhealthy food as I ate in the day that followed.

It looks like I'm safer sticking to my normal diet.

how tall are you Sue? for the waist that launched all those sari posts does not go with a 65 kg tag. Remember those "matching" puzzles we played as kids "this belongs to X", not in your case...I am pretty sure even the pins in the birthday (Rahul's) post did not belong to a 65er. Maybe you have heavy bones.

I'm 5'6". Looks like I've put on a bit of weight since those pics or something. Funny. Could've sworn it was just the woollens making me look bigger!

R's Mom said...

Ditto Aneela's comment..the sari posts made me so jealous of you :)

Dewdrop said...

I second Aneela too. I was jealous of u looking at those sari pictures :)

Taylor said...

I know I can stand to lose about 20 pounds or so this year and I would like to lose the belly fat quickly. I found a program that makes sense with diet and exercise

Aneela Z said...

Hark! Taylor the 'product placement' stalker

LOL, it's so true! I wolf down the Haldirams and jagegry sweets more when I've determined the paunch has to go :P

I agree with Aneela, you have heavy bones. :)

R's Mom, Dewdrop -- You will of course not believe me but those photographs were cropped ver-ry carefully at strategic places.

Aneela -- LOL I found 'Taylor' so funny I decided to let the comment stay. For the nonce.

Starry -- I've been telling myself my pants shrunk in the wash. It's winter, right, and weird things happen in cold water. Or could happen. Right? Damn those scales for dropping from my eyes.

Monika -- Well, I mean to lose a couple of kilos. I don't know that I'm actively trying to. Diets are disastrous things when I'm let loose on them.

Wise Evie Parker -- Not really. I mean, right now I can but I know myself. If I let this go then 70 is not far and once I hit 70 I'll never shake it off. Of course, given my genes I'll be obese in 10 years but till then I'd like to retain some semblance of a figure. *sigh*

Sands said...

Sue, can completely relate given that I am the same height as you and the weighing scale reads very similar numbers. But got to agree with Aneela on the saree pictures though. They for sure made me envious :)

Delurking.....unless you have heavy bones or have put on much weight since Aug-Sep last year when I saw you at Tamarind, the scales are not working right. And you have the luxury of enjoying nolen gurer sandesh, pathali gur and the likes... don't sacrifice that for anything!!!

You're not fat (not even 'healthy') by any standards, but I think I get where the guilt about not making an effort comes from -- at least that's how it is for me. It's the thought that with a *little* effort, things could be so much better. Sigh. isn't there a saying about the last mile being the longest or something?

Sue said...

Sands -- Any satisfaction I get from the madisaar lot flies out of the window if I chance to look at the Bengali drape ones. The years are not being kind to my midriff.

Rambler/Cook -- Sorry, have we met? To answer your q, yes, I have put on some weight since then but probably not as much as I think. :) And yes, I'm pigging out on the sweets.

Shrabonti -- Na, I'm not fat but ektu healthy-ir dikey cholchhi. Need to apply brakes. In my family the women tend to obesity with serious repercussions to their health. Unfortunately we are also too lazy to do anything about it except eat a little more to comfort ourselves. In all this I'm running entirely to pattern!

Dieter said...

Hi,
I've been trying to lose my weight too some time ago. I found that eating a high protein breakfast after waking up made a big difference! Its all I changed in my diet and in 2 months I lost 5 kilos while not changing anything else in my diet or eating habits. I guess the reason why this works is that the protein makes you feel not hungry so you will snack less or eat smaller portions later.
