Fat, Fat, Go Away...


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....

Oh dear, Puteri, it is so difficult isn't it, to stay away from all the delicious food. I too am fighting a losing battle with trying to avoid anything sweet, but I just love desserts and ice blended CBTL cookies and cream and they are all sweet. Looking at the pics of macroons and cakes in KG's blog plus all the food on astro's 702 and other food channel doesn't help either. Howlah? NanaDJ

Aunty Puteri,
I love you just the way you are....that's what I said to Mama so she's not bothered about losing weight. May I sing the same to you? purrr...meow!

Kama, dah berumur ni kena jaga kesihatan, not so much losing weight to look pretty, but more like wanting to be able to do things more comfortably. Tak sakit lutut naik tangga turun tangga or nak solat. At this age, macam2 penyakit dok mengorat. Congratulations for maintaining "the loss". I know you can do it. Kalau I at 58 can lose 35 lbs in 16 weeks, I am sure you can do it. You are on the right track.

How la...I have given up. Only the thought of creeping health concerns keep me going back to the exercise and diet once in a blue moon (every two and a half months?)
