An endless round of engagements/ kenduris/ high teas, not to mention a current penchant for trying out new dessert recipes, has put paid to my effort to shed the pounds.
The good news is I have managed to lose some three kgs thus far through fasting, controlled eating and brisk walking. The bad news is the momentum has stalled. If at all there's any consolation at the moment, it's that the fats have not crept back (yet!)
After going off rice completely for some time, I succumbed to hard-to-resist wedding fare of nasi minyak, rendang, ayam masak merah, dalca, pacri nanas et al four Saturdays in a row.
And as I write, I'm already thinking of baking. Saturday last, over tea, Kak Maz (blogger ASH) gave me an oh-so-British tea towel with five tempting honey-based recipes printed on it, and I just have to try them out.
There's Honey Souffle, Honey and Almond Cake, Honey Fudge, Honey Cookies and Mead. I think I'll start with Honey Cookies, the simplest. How la to lose weight like this....
