During school days, our trip to the gym is cut down to three times a week, sometimes less. But we're just enjoying our time there.

Looking good and feeling good about ourselves are very important to one's self-esteem. We are forever pressured on the looks department to look superb in order to gain friends and not be the laughing stock anywhere. Part of this goal of achieving good looks is ensuring that we look fit and fit enough to look good on any clothes. So the obsession now of achieving that reed-like figure grips everyone, rich and poor alike. Yes, obesity is now a big problem especially in places where fast foods are everywhere. Food is definitely hard to resist and its availability on almost every corner of the street makes it hard for anyone to maintain a trim figure. But with some will and determination, one can achieve his/her desired weight without going too far. Here are few doable suggestions on how you can lose weight without a sweat. Remember, this only works when you have the will to follow these simple goals which yours truly is following without breaking a sweat. Here goes:
1) Give up the sodas or softdrinks. If you find this hard to do, you can first try drinking only half of the usual amount you drink. Then go down to just a sip until you are able to give it up entirely and enjoy the satisfying effect of plain water.
2) Share your food. Whatever food you have, share it with people around you. Cut it into half or maybe three or four.
3) Cut by half all your food intake. For instance, instead of a cup of rice, just consume half a cup, half of the meat size you usually consume, etc. etc.
4) Exercise. You may quickly say you don't have the time. I don't believe it. I am sure you have 30 minutes to spare everyday----early morning when you wake up, lunch break, after work, before bedtime? Find time to sweat it out.

I have found a new way of keeping a few pounds away and it is by sharing your food with others. If you have like a huge sandwich prepared by your mom, you can give half of it to a friend. If your mom has insisted in loading your lunch box with goodies, be happy to share them with your classmates or officemates. Share, share, share whatever food you have----this will make you look good to your friends as generosity is always a virtue anywhere, and---this will also make you lose some weight.

The temptation to post our photos now which will comprise our "Before" pictures in the future is so strong that from now on I will be sharing the little successes we're able to achieve on a day-to-day basis. Today being Monday is a no-gym day but we did a few counts of semi push-ups and leg exercises which did not really translate into any drop of sweat but nevertheless I count them as something. For several evenings now, we have skipped eating rice at dinner. So far, so good. We will see.

It still baffles me why make-up artists shave much of a girl's eyebrows when she turns 18 and submits herself to full make-up for her party. Why? The effect is not very appealing for most times they make the girl look 80 instead of 18. What is wrong with these beauticians who think that thin arching eyebrows are in good taste? Believe me girls, never allow make-up artists to leave a thin line for those eyebrows. They are not in the least flattering. The best make-up artists in the world know that good eyebrows look natural but clean. They're not very thin and arched. That's so yesterday.

Let me share with you how I am going about my plan to shed off excess pounds in the next few months. A membership at a gym most accessible to me was done. Then, in order to reach my goal in the shortest time possible, I had to limit my food intake as well, but in so doing I did not also want to deprive myself of the pleasures of eating the foods I want. So what I do now is to cut the amount of food I take by half. For instance, instead of a cup of rice, I try my best to make do with half a cup. As to sodas, instead of finishing the whole can or bottle, I only drink half of it and this holds true for everything else. Cakes, bread, chicken, pork adobo----I only eat half and leave the rest on the plate. I've done this for a couple of weeks yet, so I may not be able to see much loss. But surely, in the new few months, I should be able to tell you whether I have succeeded in shrinking the waistline.
