i am on diet plan

Hey is about time that this big mama shed some pounds! yup my doc has made an appointment for me to meet a nutritionist on March 27th. I am in a serious stage where i weigh over 200lbs. Yeah u hear me... a person like me that stands 5 feet 2 tall weighs abt over 200lbs.. this is way serious man!
I am always on the plus size ..but after gave birth to Ryan i am getting even worst. Before i got pregnant i was only 160lbs yea...i was very happy..coz i never weigh that less...but after giving birth to Ryan..my weight just gone up and up.
This is due to i am always stayed at home especially during winter time... boyyyyy.... i ate and ate..whenever i feel bored. sigh...
Now i have to take control over my life..no more over eating ...and work out more!

So, my nutritionist has make a diet plan for every breakfast , lunch and dinner for me.
First rule of thumb, i must balance up every meal that i eat. That is, must have grains or pasta which is the carbo, then fruits or vege, milk or cheese and meat
Every meal i must balance up at least 3 category.
Ha! i learned this when i was in highschool but i never fully utilize it..kekekekek what a shame huh?

Second rule of thumb is must space out every meal at least 4-6 hours...
Hmmm..geeze this i have to force myself to do it..coz i am very easily drawn to snacking man!
So far i am doing good..its been 5 days i have started this diet plan... doing oki so far..but the first day was like hell for me!
Especially when i have to give Ryan snacks...kekkeke..can't help it! But on tuesday and wednesday..i was doing much better.. always reminded myself the look of Christie Ally ..boy she looks good now..after loosing over 60lbs with the help Jenny Craig..
But my goal is not really that big man.. i am aiming like going down below 200lbs first.. after that i am aiming like 5lbs at time.

OKie where was i... oh yea..the second rule of thumb... ..well if i can follow these 2 rules..i am doing pretty good already.
The next thing is.. i cannot snack..especially during 3-4 pm..ai yai ai yai.. that is when i needed the food the most..esp my tea man!
Ya.. and the worst part is..she said cut down on the caffaine ..my GOD! u see.. before i give birth to RYan..i am a coffee queen.. like my dad, sis and everyone of my family.. we are like addicted to NESCAFE! THanks to my DAD (used to work in NESTLE) and introduced NESCAFE to us when we were like 8 or 9 years old..kekkekeke
but after gaving birth to Ryan..i couldn't drink any coffee anymore..coz it gives me heartburn... alamak..like that no more caffaine for me lor..soooo i have no choice..gotta switch to TEA!
Before march 27th 2006 i was a tea "queen" ..now..the nutritionist ask me to change from a tea queen to a milk queen.
yup u guees it rite.. rite now while i am typing my blog..i am enjoying my cup of milk. She said women after giving birth must drink at least 2-3 cups of milk a day.. to build up the calcium back. Coz the baby took all the calcium from us..so we kinda need to replace it back. Furtheremore women reach 30 years old...they are starting to loose calcium each day bit by bit..is like our body no longer intake as many calcium as before... so women out there..start ur calcium intake man!
if u dun like milk...try to see ur pharmacist..talk to them...and ask them to give u some calcium supplements.
As for me, i have no problem with milk..i like milk very much! kekek..u can tell how fat am i..eventhough when i am young that time..i used to drink lotsa milk.
She asked me to switch to 1% milk instead of 2% milk (overhere our milk are sold in a 4 litre bags of milk which categorised from skimmed milk, 1% milk,2% milk,3.75%milk or homogenised milk) those percentage represent the fat level.

okie dokie...this is my diet plan:-
