food temptations

anonymous asked:

hello~ ive been struggling losing weight... im 55 kilos at 5'1and i want to be 10 kilos lighter :( im asian and its so hard to be a bit chubby with all your skinny friends around you... D: do you have any tips? :( I just feel really down and i need someone to talk to!

I completely understand! I feel it’s a little more difficult for Asians since we’re expected to be thin because of “genetics” or the food we eat.

I used to be 58 kg~130 lb and after dieting and exercising I’m now down to 49 kg~108 lb and I’ve developed daily routines that help maintain my weight. I do realize that I’m a bit underweight but I feel fine and I always have enough energy to work out :-)

These are my personal routines:

  • I make myself drink lots of water (or I drink Korean barley or burdock tea which are both really good for weight loss)
  • I eat one large meal a day (this isn’t on purpose my work schedule interferes with eating) but there is this famous book in Japan about the health benefits of eating one meal a day here
  • Every time I’m hungry I snack on fruits or veggies or nuts until I’m full
  • I exercise regularly with my typical workout being 1 hour of walking, 20 minutes of cycling, 100 waist whittlers, and 30 minutes of hula hooping

Please don’t adopt my tips wholly as it’s not some set “diet”. It’s something that my body has gradually adjusted to and I don’t support extreme diets. I always eat when I’m hungry and I know my limits when I’m exercising.

General tips:

  • Drink lots of water
  • Carry around small ziploc bags of fruits/nuts or have them ready in your fridge when you want a snack
  • Have a small journal to carry around and write down little notes of encouragement and letters to yourself you can also write down all the food you ate and exercises you did to track yourself
  • Don’t count calories, it’s a waste of time and it’s a hard habit to break
  • Hang a dress or some piece of clothing you really love in your room for motivation (even buy one a size smaller if you want)
  • Keep junk food and other temptations out of your sight or try to get your parents to buy less of it
  • Watch kpop music videos and dance practices to give you motivation

Before you give up:

  • Drink a glass of water count to 100
  • Watch girl group music videos
  • Read letters and words of encouragements you wrote
  • Think of all the times you gave up and how many more times you’ll say “tomorrow”
  • Scroll over this tag I keep of bodies for motivation
  • Read over this whole entire answer I’m giving you and just know that I’m spending an hour to give you advice because I 100% wholeheartedly believe in you

Shopping list/foods to eat more of:

  • Watermelons
  • Apples
  • Berries
  • Cherry tomatoes
  • Sweet potatoes
  • Boiled eggs
  • Broccoli 
  • Edamame
  • Raw nuts
  • Avocados
  • Oatmeal
  • Chicken breast
  • Non-fried fish
  • Tofu
  • Brown rice

My workout playlist:

Please don’t mull over for a long period of time on issues such as weight. I know everyone has those days where we get depressed with our weight but also remember that you are blessed with a body that is healthy! Don’t worry and good luck :-)

DEC 2015 EDIT: This was answered about 2 years ago so a lot has changed! I gained some healthy weight back and stopped eating one meal a day.

so ever since I made the ‘meet the artist’ meme I have an official personal look  
maybe from time to time I can make little comic diary like this

anyways! I’m kinda a foodie and for me its very hard to resist the temptation of food.
I mean I’m not obese, but there are some flab on my that I need to get rid of…
especially since CNY is coming soon (even more reason for me to get nervous)

but yea… strong emphasis on the word tomorrow… =v= I don’t wanna explain the joke, if you get it you get it~

Maybe like, after Ed gets out of Arkham he goes to live at Oswald’s, where the reader is also residing as a live-in maid/servant/assassin? Something like that. Leading to smutty goodness (maybe some peanut butter involved too? You started a thing with PB for me thanks) xoxo 

Warnings: Threesome, M/F/M (Female reader insert), peanutbutter kink.

Food Temptation by 罪 遙

I bet you didn’t think that by “incredibly soon” I meant about a day later, huh? Truth be told I felt kinda bad about the previous chapter because it was mostly just a filler chapter to speed the plot along and show some time passing, but this one and the next couple chapters deliver some seriously flirty vibes and drama (at least in my opinion) and the words just kept coming so I decided to seize the opportunity and post this ASAP.

I also found this chapter rather cathartic to write because I am still incorporating a lot of myself and my experiences into Rae and the story overall, so I really hope you enjoy reading this as much as I enjoyed writing it! This chapter is at about 2,994 words, which is right on track with my goal of making each mini-fic 3,000 words or less!

Wanna get caught up on the updates leading up to this one? Look no further!

Feel free to let me know if you would like to be added/removed from the tagged list and I’ll be happy to oblige! As always: each and every one of you that read my writing, like, reply, reblog, etc. are amazing people and inspire me to keep writing! :)

my online nutrition class seems like it will be clear and easy enough for now, but man. reading my classmates’ forum posts full of food shame and cultural baggage is already making my skin crawl

Does anyone else destroy their temptation foods?

Examples:

1. My friend Allison didn’t eat the rest of her pizza roll ups and she wanted me to eat them. So I ate half of one and then took the plate to the kitchen where i proceeded to literally rip them apart. I threw them into the garbage and then dumped water on them.

2. My boyfriend left oreo cookies in the kitchen and I thought I was going to cry over how bad I wanted them. So I took the remaining cookies (There were maybe 3) and I threw them on the ground and stomped on them.

I cannot just say no to food. If it’s left for me then I have to absolutely destroy it so that no matter what I can’t sit down and think “Well maybe just one bite.”.
The problem is that I feel so much hatred when I destroy the food.. I’m kind of worried.
