I did not go through special diet plan, nor limit myself with any type of food. I always believe in a balance of everything. Instead, I still eat the same thing, just controlled my portions. I still have rice for breakfast, lunch and dinner. I still have snacks in between meals if I feel hungry, only if I really am hungry.
You may think I am not including exercise in my health plan, that is because I am already exercising regularly, not so much for weight loss, but to keep my fitness level to be able to enjoy hiking and climbing until I am very old and gray. However, I added sideward leg kicks as high as I could, and more bending stretches for my belly.
In one week, I lost 3 pounds, and I believe most of the weight lost were around my waist. I am happy to note that my suffering each time I wear my pants and skirts are less now. Before, it was so hard to zip my pants/jeans. I am committed not to buy bigger size clothing, I love my old clothes! Here are samples of what my meals (breakfast, lunch, dinner) look now. I only ate one plate each meal now, and not several plates of mountainful servings like before.
DINNER - eggplant omelette, adobong kangkong ( ong choy sauteed in spicy vinegar and soy sauce) and veggie rice
DESERT and SNACKS ( fruits and veggie salad, yes, I put rice in my salad sometimes, I am such a rice person and I do not think I can survive and go hiking without my rice! Haha! )
Not in picture for my other snacks: almond, sunflower seeds, seaweed ( Or whatever I feel like eating )
