Ako? Mataba? Excuuuuze me.

People would always know me as someone who’s bakla, confident, fun-loving and free-spirited. I have this habit of trivializing things and the need for a punchline when things get “too serious.” This may probably be one of the reasons why being overweight is not too big of an issue for me because I can get away with it. My confidence is not diminished by my size. Keri lang ba. I remember back in highschool when I always get the role of moms and donyas and I was good at it because I can’t relate to the “smaller” roles. hehe. I managed to be slim in college when there were lack of funds for food, there was a very hectic (and active) schedule and there was a decision to lose weight. It was a success! As a result, I had my first boyfriend when I was 18. Yiheee. Then adulthood happened. I was busy and stagnant at the same time, I had money for a gym subscription but I also had money for food, and Starbucks and office lunch-outs and emotional food trips and everything nice, sweet and sugary…

Old Vine Grille by Chef's Quarter

Being on a "diet" doesn't mean I have to deprive myself of the yummy things in life, right? So, still in compliance with the 3333 meal plan, I looked up the list of best salads in the metro for our next monthsary date. Here's the list from Yummy salad = Low EQ. Hence, the monthsary was celebrated muuuuch earlier. We chose to taste #1 and off we went to the Old Vine Grille in Eastwood for their best-seller.
 Tessie Tomas salad (P680)
 Babyback Ribs (P495) + extra Potato Wedges (P75)

The Bigger the Why, the Easier the How

More than just losing weight for vanity, I want to be slimmer for health. Right. Of course, looking beautiful is always part of the equation. ;)
Here are my top reasons for participating in this 90-day weight management program. (As of press time, I'm already on my 15th day.)

1. I want to feel good about myself.
2. I want to look good in what I wear.
3. I'm avoiding diabetes.
4. I want to move faster, lighter without the panting and complaining (from aching knees and feet.)
5.I want to set a good example for Isay (my daughter).
6. I want to show my family that it can be done.
7. I want to dance without easily getting tired.
8. Maintaining a healthy way is anti-aging!

Cheers to a healthy 2012!
