OOTD: Short on change (and thoughts on dieting)
I wanted to talk about how shorts are a staple yada yada but I'm sure that everyone else has exhausted the topic. To summarize: we live in a tropical country. Shorts are part of our national identity.
On a completely different note - one phrase has been running in my head repeatedly this morning. "If you want to lose weight, EAT LESS." It's like a freakin' mantra. But how less is less, and at what point do we need to eat more? I've been on a no carb diet for the past three weeks and it's consuming me. I do cheat once in a while, of course, but I make sure to make it up in the next meal.

It is seriously challenging (as you know) not to eat rice or even bread with meals. But I've sort of gotten used to it already and I want them to remain on the fringes of my life. I don't want to swear I wont eat carbs forever because I know I will have to especially when eating out. But when I cook (which is most of the time) they won't be around.
I actually enjoy eating vegetables with my meat although the preparation part sucks. But hey, if that's what it takes to at least maintain my weight then okay. I just want to strike a balance. It's not smart to over-eat, but it's equally stupid to eat too little.
Anyway, here's an outfit I wore yesterday (the first one was last Saturday):
Nude blazer from Rockwell (forgot the brand) / Forever 21 shorts / Pinkbox bangles and earrings / Pill platforms / Louis Vuitton Monogram Alma bag
Thanks for putting up with my rambling haha. Share your diet stories too, okay? Good morning!
Hi everyone! Thank you for sharing your inspiring and informative stories! I read all the blog links you posted as well. It's nice to know that we're not alone struggling against our weight. We have different ways to deal with it but one thing is sure: determination is key!
