Getting Slimmer for the Better + Updates

From my confession post :)

I have been overweight ever since I stepped into high school. It must be because of the hormones and genes that I have. I have experienced to be slim and I like it, but its very hard to maintain it because you really have to restrain yourself from what your taste buds really like. 

This was me 2 years ago

I admit I’ve let myself go to eat anything I want to. I kind of feel bad about it because the consequence is tough. I had to face a lot of criticism and also the teasing that comes with it. Now I am back on track to be a healthier person.

I still eat the food that I love, but I take it in moderation. I also have a rule about eating junk food, if I drank a glass of soda now that will be the only soda intake I will have for the week. I drink more water now since its better. 

This is me last May

Besides from choosing healthier eating habits, I also try to be more active in moving. I would actually take the longer route on my way home so I can walk more. I also play with my dogs more since they also need the exercise.  I’m actually planning on buying one of my dogs a leash so I can take her outside.

I also laugh more since they say laughter lessens your stress which can also slim you down. Weird but true.
The reason why I want to slim down is for health reasons. My dad had diabetes which also puts us in danger of having one too if me and my brothers keep up on our old habits. 

I’ve actually stopped doing yoga because whenever I do my yoga sessions at home my niece and my nephew would just disturb my inner peace.  I’ve become a weight lifter because of them. Those two really like me to carry them around the house.

I haven’t weighed myself to know how much I’ve lost but we’ll get to that next week haha!

 Another Update! 
I have actually started saving up for my birthday gift so I think you girls won’t be seeing any hauls at the moment. I just hope I’ll be able to save up for at least a good quality digital camera. 

The long shot wish I can buy with my money is a Mac Air. Mac Air is cheaper and lighter than Mac Pro so I’ll settle with that.  

I think the last haul I will be doing is the Etude house Haul and also some bazaars I will be attending in October or November.  In terms of the requests, please do forgive me if I haven’t done your requests, I have been really busy with work and also personal matters so I wasn’t able to do them immediately. I will try to post them up within this October and November that’s for sure

If you do have questions you can comment below or drop me a message at my twitter account (!/ytphotoescape) and I’ll talk to you soon.

Much Love!
