The most common food that is killing you...

hey all,
I've just read the most comprehensive info on sugar ever.. go to Dr. Mercola site.

It just proof one thing.. SUGAR IS BAD FOR YOU!... especially Fructose.. in the form of High-Fructose-Corn-Syrup (HFCS). I've mentioned it over and over again here on this blog.

...Be sure to eat your sugar with fiber ... as in a piece of fruit. As Dr. Lustig says, “When God made the poison, he packaged it with the antidote: fiber.”

If you're wondering why your middle section has not improve (despite all of those exercises you've been doing). Please do look at your diet... please drop the sodas/carbonated drinks.. it's a poison.

In my case, I've mentioned this before, carbonated drink has been my staple drinks before. I'd have bottles/cans of them at home, if I'm down to 1 can/bottle, I'll sure make a trip to the grocery store to stock-up. At office, it's free flow at the pantry! (sponsored by the company).
Now? since I've started my journey, I'm swearing to you that I've not had even a single sip ever since. If you don't want to believe, it's up to you. To me, HFCS is a poison. Why would I want to kill myself?

All of the scientific evidence has been shown on the above links.

It's your choice. I've made mine.

stay strong.

Never give up..!

There are times when I feel lousy.. no mood... no strength to face some of the adversity..

I keep myself fire-up by watching this video that I've posted back then.

It's not how your start; it's how you finish. 

90% of all those who fail
are not actually defeated..
they simply quit.
-famous quote

Stay strong,

Make your own 'Biggest Loser' by being *accountable* to yourself..

Watched a re-run of the most recent episode of The Biggest Loser Asia last night on Hallmark channel. Last nite show, Garry, the only caucasian, being kicked out.

It is interesting to watch fellow comrades (well, I used to be like them.. more like Tony I think) trying to lose the fat back then.. so trust me.. I can really take to heart what's running in their head!.. been there.. done that.

Infact worst.. I was without a trainer.. without anyone guiding/push you or motivate you.. in the show they're together supporting each other and always have the trainer to kick your posterior. Me? I was all alone (at least in the beginning)... How people make fun of the goal that I've back then. Every time I'm at the dinner table (or lunch, or breakfast), I have always have to face other people (even family) comments... some are good, but most of the times... not nice... but that doesn't stop me. Infact, I like it... the more 'the-not-so-nice' comments fired me - the more I'm determined to proof them wrong!

One thing if you've noticed - in my early days of the journey, I broadcasted my intention to friends and family.. I emailed my progress to my colleagues at work, friends, and family members. See my previous post on that.

Do you know why?

I want to make myself accountable. I learnt it somewhere (forgot where hv I picked up) - they termed it as the 'Declaration of Excellence' or DOE for short. In DOE, you have to list your goals, and you need to have your detail plans - and you need to tell people of your goal. Broadcast it to your circle of friends and family.

With DOE - I am accountable with my own actions. If I'm slipping - hopefully the people would remind me. People at the dinner table did exactly that - they know my intention, and they gave me the much needed feedback. I've to respond to it - and later, I did more, by sharing my progress report to them. The more they see you're 'for real', those negative comments slowly converting to a more positive and encouraging ones. See the old post.

When people started to forward my emails to their friends, a lot more queries came in, and I've had more than a handful to respond to them, and no time as well.. that at the end, I decided to have this blog. Rambling all I can.. sharing some knowledge, as well as sharing my progress, or what I'm up to.

I tell you.. with DOE, and people around me supporting you.. gives you the strength.. the motivation to push yourself even more... better than the participant of the Biggest Loser (you've your friends and family - much more than bunch of strangers).... and definitely... it's much much much much better than sitting on the couch.. watching The Biggest Loser...

Ask yourself.. WHAT DO YOU WANT???

btw, an old buddy of mine took this pic recently, and he matched it with our old pic.. cool :)

the 2001 pic - I'm still single.
the 2009 pic - got 3 kids! how time flies.

now 2010!!!!

Stay healthy always..
