Dear Diet Buddy,

The very reason I write this series of letter in the first place is to offer your encouragement. I find it helps to have someone to encourage, and be encourage by! I hope you have read all my previous letters. You notice that we have all the support we need from this people on the blog land. Should you have missed any of the previous discussions, I want to highlight a few of those weight loss wisdom I learned from these blogger. 

1) Making WEIGHT LOSS MISTAKES when trying to lose weight is common. The way to handle is by being aware of that mistakes and try to do small changes to tackle it. Kate, who's the weight loss success story herself and the blogger behind the Fat to Fit Geek shares her golden tips to success: Not to fill your plate for one sitting.

2) This one is not from the 30 Days Letters series. DO YOU USE A FOOD JOURNAL TO KEEP TRACK OF WHAT YOU EAT? I hate calorie counting because sometimes it get me clueless about how much calorie I have taken, I feel that it's so complicated to analyze every details of what I put in my mouth. But Marion from Affection for Fitness has a better idea. Food journaling will encourage you to seek simple foods. Genius. So I'm back to the journaling routine this August. 

3) DO YOU HAVE A BAD HABIT? Disrupt bad habit by changing the method of performance like how Dana of Kiss My List do:

4) Being STUCK AT A WEIGHT LOSS PLATEAU can be awfully discouraging. It happens to everyone. Leslie from Pampers, Play Dates & Parties shares what worked with her: Make a  weight loss chart. Weight loss chart is a great tool to help you see on a daily, weekly or monthly basis, just how much weight you're gaining or losing. Sounds like a great idea. 

I've read some other little trick to lose weight which not involve diet and exercise like chewing gum to curb your cravings, Jessica Alba's double corset for weight loss, and using a rubber band technique to control addictions.

What weight loss trick work for you?

Yours truly,

  1. I like that point about calorie counting and simplicity. It's definitely easier to count a three-ingredient dish than something with twenty different bits! :)

  2. I reaaly like that you shared the comments and advise from your followers. I don't always get to read what they say. Wonderful support system!

  3. Oh I so love seeing other bloggers (that I know) giving comments and advice. I eat very slowly and not usually past 9 or 10 pm. And I'm not that into dinner. I'm VERY hungry for breakfast and lunch so I just follow what my body says and I never overdo it on dinner. I'm certainly not perfect but these are traits I was born with.

  4. Hi Rachel. I just realize another good side of calorie counting. :) It doesn't sounds complicated as I thought so.

    I want you to know Carli, that you are also one of my pillar of support. Reading your every comment delighted my day.

    Hi Tamara. Now I know what keep you slim and slender. Thanks for sharing your secret. It's not a secret anymore. :)

    Have a great weekend everyone, and thanks for stopping by!

  5. Hi Rachel, when eating something sweet I remind myself that there is nothing as good as the first bite. This helps me reduce the amount I eat. Came from SITS sharefest

  6. I like the idea of using a food journal. It seems that having a buddy offers you tremendous support and helps keep you accountable. Wishing you all the best as you continue your journey.

  7. It's so frustrating when you think you're doing everything "right" and the scale doesn't budge...I've been using MyFitnessPal lately which has helped me see portion control has to be maintained. #SITSSharefest Have a great week Honeybee!

  8. Hello from #SITSSharefest!

    I'm on Weight Watchers so I'm tracking my food there. For me it's all about portion control, drinking water almost exclusively, slowly introducing vegetables to my diet, and exercising.

  9. I didn't realize it, but I've definitely been using a calorie counting app like a food journal. I don't care about how many calories I've consumed... but I like writing down what I've eaten.

  10. Thanks for sharing those useful links, really helpful for those on a journey to lose weight..

  11. Love your letters posts - will sign up for buddy encouragement. Can definitely use it. I too am blogging about my weight loss journey. This weight loss has been harder for me than previous. Probably more weight to lose. I just managed to jump over a plateau and what helped me the most was thinking about what I have already accomplished. This helped me to continue forward even though I wasn't seeing results on the scale.

  12. I have MANY bad habits and don't write my food and exercise down... I know I should...but just do't have the time. I really need to get on track... *sighs*
    I don't get sleep, which makes exercise difficult... :(


  13. Karen Main, thanks. That tips is very helpful. I'll try that the next time I eat something sweet.

    Thanks Teresa. Yes keeping a food journal do helps you take a critical look at your food habits and make healthy changes.

    Lydia Filgueras, it's frustrating. But I thought that I may not have push myself hard enough? :)

    Cassandra Schmigotzki agreed about drinking enough water but in fact that is one of my biggest weakness. I'll fix that.

    aki!, I find myself is hard to stay faithful with tracking my own food. I'm working on it.

    Treatntrick Treat and Trick, I'm glad it helpful.

    Hi Scarlett @Scarletts Excellent Adventures. Nice to know you. Happy we could connect. Let's lose together!

    Karen, I am bad at tracking my foods too. I should not complain more, I exercise too little!

    Glad you take a peek here. Thank you all!
