Deal's a Deal!


I've got a deal with my better half. I lose the excess blubber and he completely quits smoking!

Fair is fair.

So onward ho. Today was my fast [for purposes of salvation]. Tomorrow onwards I begin a Diet cum Detox programme. I even planned in advance for it. Now I've done this programme before...wasn't overweight then, but it worked wonders around my bulging belly anyway. lost the 6kgs i was holding on in excess and kept it that way till college. Mind you, I had more self control at 16 than I do today. I wish... No , I will have the same determination I had back then.

Bear in mind this programme is being followed under strict supervision of a Qualified medical professional. And is not to be attempted otherwise.

I have 14 inches to lose aroung my belly, which according to personal experience is a far more reliable indicator than Weight [scales.].

The rules for the next 3 days [out of 12days total.] are as follows :

- Eat Homemade curds. I made them from double toned milk.
- No sugar
- No juices.
- No fizzy drinks.
- Only 2 cups black tea/coffee.
- At least 12 glasses water.

....

Measure waist after 3 days.

....

Update here :o)

Apparently Goals are kept better if shared publicly. To avoid humiliation one follows the goal come what may!

....

Anyone wishing to follow this with me is welcome to keep me company!

....

Wish me luck!

[p.s : It's not a crash diet. It's a detox programme. To get rid of the wastes of the body. Weight loss may or may not occur as a by product. If you do this, please take multivitamins like becosules.]

39 lost souls found themselves in my mirror....:

@Aniket : LUcky for me and my palate I'm not a fan of Chaat. lol.

coffeeismypoison said...

@Ruchika : I doubt even U would want this many inches there!!

coffeeismypoison said...

@Badz : Not the sugar free ones...and they don't make one put on weight per se...just give part of the required daily allowance [RDA] of nutrients...

coffeeismypoison said...

Sumit said...

deliberate?? NO!! I really was having all of that. I still have that wine bottle with me. I have a small glass every other day - dry, red!!

SSQuo said...

Thanks for stopping by and becoming a follower!

diets and me do not do well, but I think what you are doing is basically ridding the body of unwanted, unhealthy things...its just we get so used to the crap that stopping them makes you feel like you are on a diet. I thik you'll do just fine. :)

And with a goal like reduced puffing from better half - hmmm it should work just fine.

CoFfEe AnGeL said...

@Pesto sauce : Email me...il reply back in details...better yet...let me do it myself n then il post it here... :)

CoFfEe AnGeL said...

@ Sumit : Brand name of wine and cost? wanna surprise my bf with it. he likes wine!

CoFfEe AnGeL said...

@ssQuo : Not just reducing puffing...GIvING UP ALTOGETHER!! isn't he the bestest?

Sara said...

Looks like a solid impressive plan,stick to it!!

CoFfEe AnGeL said...

@sara : Yes it is :) trying my best!

HasnahLilyAnderson said...

Gauri Gharpure said...

seems tough, this one...

Zeba Talkhani said...

Ohhhhhhh. Nice. Hope you achieve it. what are the updates now?

SSQuo said...

Yes, giving up is perfect!!!! My friend happens to say that cold turkey is the best way to go, and Im sure after the initial withdrawls itll be fine. It's all so much of a habit more than anything, which as we know is hard to break!

Keep us posted!

CoFfEe AnGeL said...

Hasnah : Don't we all ?? The skinny ones complain the fat ones complain...even the perfect ones complain!!!

CoFfEe AnGeL said...

@Gauri : It is...very tough. But i guess we'll have to be tougher than it?? :)

CoFfEe AnGeL said...

@Zeba : Hey...thanks for coming here!! Well the sad update is that since i had to go to weddings for a few days, i cudn't start the program...but will update on sunday so watch out!

CoFfEe AnGeL said...

@SSQUO : i hope he can give up cold turkey. mayb i can give him a patch...to help ease the pain :)
