Yesterday I got a very lovely present from my girl friend, Agnes. She sent me this Starbucks thermos travel cup which I really like. I have been trying to lose weight for the last few weeks and this time is for real.
Today morning I stepped on the scale and I lost 10 lbs, my heart and mouth said "yoohoo" at the same time. I haven't been able to lose weight since I gave birth to my second child. I tried to lose weight, but with the stress and busy life, I gave up totally. 3 weeks ago I went to my personal doctor because of the headache I have been having for last 2 years, and my blood pressure was all time high, she ordered me to on diet and lose weight and took the high blood pressure medicine all at once. I was like "uh ho".
In the last 2 weeks, I was trying to take it easy in everything, especially eating, stop myself eating junk food whenever I feel very stressful. It helped a lot. I was hungry at first, then I just trying to drink more tea, or at lunch and dinner I would try to eat more rice and less meat. Finally it did work, and I was so glad.
Now talking about the thermos, in the past I drank 3 cups of coffee each day to keep me running, now I only have a cup, so that cup has to be lasting for a while. By putting my cup of coffee in a thermos cup, I was able to drink it in 2 hours, instead of finishing 1 cup in 15 mins and then went ahead and get a 2nd cup, I have this 1 cup of coffee for 2 hours. It totally helped me to lose weigh, cut down the sugar and milk.
Agnes, a true sweet heart, she heard me that I needed a thermo cup, she bought me another one for my birthday present, and now I can do the exact same thing when I am driving. Indeed, she has been a very lovely friend to have. Thank you Agnes!! (biggggggg huggggggssssssss for my girlfriend).
