It has been a terrible two weeks of coughing and sneezing. Even my children were sick. I was hesitant to eat the medicine though I was voiceless. However, I was told that if I don't get well soon, my body had to spend more of its 'resources' to fight the virus, than to burn my fats.
So I guai guai ate medicine for a week. But the timing was 'just nice' because I could not go for my treatment too, as I was having my menses. But to my surprise, I still lost quite a significant amount of weight! Resume my treatment last week and noticed I lost 2.1kg from the two sicky weeks! Woohoo!
Went for my 8th sessions last Saturday. Lost another 800gram for the week. Somehow I was not too satisfied, though my therapist assured me that I was doing well to lose 6.5kg in 7 sessions. I confessed to her that I had not been drinking as much water for the week because I went for visits almost every day. Due to the long weekend, I did not sleep as much too :(
Frankly, I got a feeling that I did not lose as much weight for this week, even before I stood on the weighing machine. i think it was good that I know what actually went wrong, so that I could prevent it from happening again this week. So you must know your daily routine very well before you can start this programme.
Those who wish to try out this programme, please take note you need to drink min 3 litres of water by 7pm everyday, of which you need to finish 2.2 litres before 2pm. You are also required to sleep min 6-8 hours everyday. Best to sleep before 11pm to achieve best results!
Now comes my menu again! After the intensive first few sessions, I had to make slight adjustments to my menu due to my job nature (need to go for visits so can't have all my meals in office). I love to socialize so I may need to meet friends after work, during dinner time.
I tried to be as guai as I can when comes to my lunch options. I know you will be wondering how to sustain this 魔鬼食谱 and not get sick of it before the end of the programme. Actually, I am a bit sick of my menu now. So I always try to make it more interesting and also test my 'boundaries'. This of coz may mean to risk weight gain or no weight loss. So as much as possible, I try to stick to the rules, and only bend it under certain circumstances.
This post will be endless if I go on and on about my menu :P So I am going to end here and talk about my menu in the next post!
