Losing Weight

I’ve had several people comment on the fact that I’ve lost some weight recently. A classmate asked me yesterday if I was on a diet. A friend whom I’ve not seen for a while immediately commented on this too, when we met up for mamak today. I’ve also noted that my belt has dropped a notch or two in the last few weeks.

I’d love to say that I’ve been to the gym, working out, etc – all very macho things to do for someone who wants to lose weight. Unfortunately, I’ve actually stopped running until June due to a heel injury and am resting my foot for a few months to let things heal proper.

I’d settle for simply going on a diet – eating healthy, lots of fruits and vegetables, etc. Maybe doing some high fibre, high protein, low carb kind of thing. Unfortunately, I’ve actually been eating rather unhealthily and consuming more food in general – lots of ice-cream in fact.

But I’m still losing weight.

I’ve just been working too darn hard. The next four months are not going to get any easier for me. I’m unlikely to be getting much sleep from now until Hari Raya Aidilfitri. It’s just that I’ve got too many things on my plate and I think that I need to drop a few things to stay alive.

I’ll need to to cut-down on my volunteer work next year to free up some time for other positive work. However, I seem to be picking up more random work.

I just have too many fingers and too many pies.
