First day!

Posted January 9th, 2009 at 12:27 PM by glimmer
Starting Weight: 116
Ultimate Goal Weight: 100

Hello Folks!

So, this is my first "official" day on the MoBa Diet. I say "official" with quotation marks because during summer '07, I lost 6.8kg (15lbs) in 28 days...while unintentionally on a modified MoBa diet! Of course, I worked out moderately for an hour with my mom (she has osteoporosis) everyday (nothing fancy, mostly fast-paced walking...which is my exercise of choice). I should note that I exercise on a regular basis anyway.

I had Special K cereal and a banana for breakfast everyday with strong black coffee. I drank water throughout the day: 8-10 cups. The rest of my meals weren't out of my ordinary diet of salad or sandwich for lunch and for dinner rice and fish with kimchi and some kind of stew. For a snack, I would have another banana or two. I did occasionally have a dessert of malasadas or mochi.

I went from 120 to 105. SO, I think it's safe to say that bananas work!

This time around, though, I'm going to stick to the MoBa rules to test the difference. :p

For exercise, I'm still working out everyday, but I'm also testing out a home fitness program called P90X. It's pretty intense and I already feel the difference. We'll see how different the results are.

Here's my food log for today!
B: 2 Bananas + Water
Snack: Trader Joe's Low Fat Honey Whole Wheat Pretzel Sticks

GOOD LUCK ALL! Cheers!!! :D

*Lilo's morning banana diet track* DAY 1

[COLOR=DarkOrchid]My Morning Banana Diet Day # 1 (January 9th, 2009)[/COLOR][/B][/SIZE]

Hi everyone, so this is my first Banana diet day! YAY!

[COLOR=DarkOrchid][B]Breakfast[/B] (7:30 a.m.)[/COLOR]

I took 2 bananas this morning, and felt really full after finishing the second one.
I'm the type of person who usually skips the breakfast (never really hungry when I wake up). So I'm glad to start this new habit, I felt more energetic and didn't crave anything at all.

I drank about 250 ml of room temperature water with my breakfast (I drink 1.5L of water every day and I think that won't change because I don't mind drinking room temperature water)

[COLOR=DarkOrchid][B]Lunch[/B] (12:20 p.m.)[/COLOR]

I like to eat korean food (i'm korean lol)
- 1 Bowl of rice with kimchee,
- korean bean sprout side dish
- 1 bowl of miso soup (japanese)
- fried tofu (tried not to use much oil)

[COLOR=DarkOrchid][B]Snack[/B] (3:30 p.m.)

[/COLOR][COLOR=DarkOrchid][COLOR=Black]i'll take an apple and grapes [/COLOR]

[B]Dinner[/B] (6:30 p.m.)

[/COLOR]- 1 Bowl of rice with kimchee,
- Chicken breast
- 1 bowl of miso soup
- Salad

[B]Thoughts and Feelings:

[/B][COLOR=Black]Since I'm posting this at 2 pm, i still didn't have my snack and dinner, but I can already tell that I feel fuller than usual (surprisingly couldn't finish my lunch meal today)

Have a great day everyone :)

[COLOR=black][B]Hi everyone ^^[/B][/COLOR]

i'm starting my Morning banana diet tomorrow! (got everything ready! lol)
I'm really excited and determined to update this blog everyday to motivate myself, and maybe motivate you too? :)
(hope i'll actually lose some weight >_< )

[B]Starting Weight:[/B] 163 pounds (I know im fat T_T)
[B]Target weight:[/B] 140 pounds (that would be awesome!)
[B]Body Fat:[/B] Seriously I have no idea, (I just got a regular scale)
[B]Bedtime:[/B] I'm used to sleep around 1-2am but i'll will sleep around 10-11pm starting tomorrow :)

This diet seems pretty simple and "realistic" to me, you don't have to count calories, or go all crazy planning your meals.

B: 2 persimmons and later on I had some dotorimuk, coffee w/van. soymilk.

Can't believe another year is almost gone. I hardly got to know you year, stay a little longer.:) I also don't want to be older already, my b-day is in February. I always want to reach goals before my b-day and hope this year I will have lost at least 20lbs by then.

B: 1 banana coffee w/van. soymilk
exercised 1hr
30mins rowing
30mins gazelle
L: rice, saladw/little dressing(Ad yet I still got the lecture about dressing), 4 mandu(fried).
D: Veg. chap chae and some rice, dried baby anchovies, kimchi
S:1 mochi

I live with the parents and I can't even have a meal without being told that I have to watch what I eat. My Mom is the one who gives me grief. I put a drop of dressing on my salad and I get lectured. Was told I don't seem to be losing any weight, though she has been telling me before that I looked like I had been losing. Guess it was all a lie.
I don't even want to eat anything any more because I don't want to hear about it.

Hurry up!

I am no good at keeping a blog. Well, not good at keeping a daily account of my meals. Not gonna worry about that though.

How many people are feeling frustrated? I mean you start out to lose weight and it seems like you keep at it forever and for what? In a month you lose 5lbs?! I am sick of busting my ass but not having it get any smaller. Now I have seen, online, a couple of projects involving taking a daily picture. Some of them are of women who are pregnant, some are of people losing weight, and another is of a guy who decides to lose fat and build up muscle. I was thinking that maybe I will do the same. My Mom says she can see a difference from when I moved here last month, but I can't. Maybe I'd see it too if I had taken a picture a day. Either way it would be easier to see the changes myself.

I have got to exercise, am going to Flushing,NY tomorrow and it will be another day of no exercise so I better do some today.
