Diet Food Delivered at Your Doorstep

Whoever thought of making diet food delivery as a business is genius. With diet food delivery, we can just rely on their 1,200-calorie per day menus. It's very convenient for those who have regular day jobs and have no time to prepare their own food, much less count their calorie intakes.

A couple of years back, there were only a handful of these services. Back then, I have tried Lunchbox Diet and Yummy Diet. Both proved to have very good diet food delivery services. 

This year, I'm back to dieting and I have decided to try a different diet food delivery service each week. I am on my fourth week of dieting and so far, here are the diet food deliveries that I tried:

There are a few more diet food delivery services that I would like to try in the coming weeks. I am not sure though if I should do a blog review because I really feel that each one of us has a different taste or preference. What might be good for me might not be the same for another. I will just say that so far, my favorite is Lunchbox Diet in terms of taste and portioning. But I have yet to see if I lost weight through it by the end of the week.

Anyway, I have been researching for other diet food delivery services and I was surprised at how many there are at present. Here are some of them, please click on their logos to go to their FB pages:

Please note that I am not, in any way, endorsing these diet delivery services. I am simply sharing my research on diet food. Try them at your own risk. Good luck and may you find the perfect diet food delivery service for you.

Three Years Later

So, I revisited this blog and was surprised to find out that it has been three years since my last post. Three years! Where was I all those years? Sadly, gaining weight.

Some bad news, I reached my heaviest weight yet...204 pounds.

But there's good news with that. Two weeks ago, I started dieting by going back to my calorie-controlled diet. This time, I brought down my intake to 1,500 calories a day. The result? I lost 4 pounds in 2 weeks!

In the next few days, I will be documenting my fitness journey more and share more good news, hopefully. My new goal is to lose 50 pounds in a span of a year. I am positive that I will reach my personal goal. I just need to keep my eyes on the prize.

By the way, in keeping with my personal tradition, I will celebrate my weight loss for every ten pounds that I lose.

1,200-Calorie Diet: Day 18

Day 18 Menu: 

BREAKFAST: Banana Oatmeal 
LUNCH: Fish Fillet with Oyster Sauce + Brown Rice 
SNACKS: Pineapple + Crackers  

DINNER: Peppered Chicken with Corn + Brown Rice

Checking My Progress: The First 10 Pounds

Finally, it can be told! Since I started with my diet, as of today, I've lost my first 10 pounds!

I am now on my 4th week of the 1,200-calorie diet, 18th day to be exact. I'm sure a lot of people will congratulate me for this weight loss. For that, I would like to say thank you. But as for me, this is only the beginning. I have a long way to go.

In the coming days, I will be very busy with work. It will be quite a challenge to continue my diet, but I can't stop now. I have 40 more pounds to lose. Wish me luck!

Now, let's talk about rewards. (Yey!) In the past, I always reward myself with little things for every 10 pounds that I lose. This time, I can only think of one thing, a good hair curling iron! Hahaha! If that's not within my budget, then I would probably just buy a nice dress or a pair of pants, since the ones I have are now a little loose. We'll see. :-)

Today is a happy day.
