Trying. Trying. Trying.

I'm honestly surprised about what my scale showed today.
Last time I weighed myself, the number on it was, well, 61.9 kg (136.5 lbs). That was on Monday.
It's Wednesday morning and the scale shows 60.5 kg (133.4 lbs).

The news is that I somehow managed to persuade my mom to go on a fruit detox diet with me, telling her they (my mom and my dad) eat too much and there's no way how over-eating in these temperatures is healthy. Since Monday evening, we've been eating mostly raw fruit, though yesterday we had a pasta/ vegetable lunch. My mom's not home in the mornings (starts job at 7) so I can eat absolutely nothing for breakfast, then something for lunch and fruit for dinner. I'm SO SURPRISED it's worked so well. I drink a lot of water, eat fruit and feel so much better.

Well, we'll see how this all works out (and for how long). For now, I just have a teeny- weeny hope I will at least get to the weight at which I was when I came home in May. For now, crossing the terrible line of 60 kg (132.3 lbs) is the goal. Please wish me luck. Your blogs help immensely.

Have a great day, loves!!

Slowly, but steadily-- gaining weight.

Good news: we finally installed a wifi router in our apartment, which means I have a way better access to internet now and can use my own laptop to browse the web. That also means I can resume my blogging, which I honestly missed.

Bad news: my weight loss- nothing to brag about. I'm slowly gaining weight and even thought I struggle and have tried dieting, the constant care of my parents makes it, quite frankly- impossible. I'm back on almost 62 kg (136.7 lbs), making it a goal to stay approximately on this level until I go back to college and resume my diet (this time, keeping my fingers crossed- successfully).

The summer's not been as eventful as I would have liked it to be, but I'm well-rested, not sleep-deprived any more and planning on making the most out of the 5 weeks I have left at home.

I'd be more than happy to hear from you-- I'm just going to comment on some of your latest post.

Be strong, darlings.
