a) lost some weight and inches at my waist. My lady colleague comment I look better. LOL, not some young chick hahahahah, but I am still happy.
b) Spirtually, I always wanted to keep to the 5 "commandments" (五戒) I finally done one of it, which I used to think as impossible as I am an heavy meat eater before this, at least until now. (No killing), the only one I cannot do consistently is no evil lust (邪淫), because I consider thoughts as part of it. Please hor, I dun visit night clubs. So when I abstain from meal, I also try to clear my mind from the craving of meat. I always look at the meat and reverse the image to that of the live animal, and then imagining it being killed and cooked. Usually I dun really feel like eating it after that mental process.
1) While I dun really crave for meat, I am really quite sicked of vegetarian food. Once u have been eating a while, you will hate the mock meat etc. it defeat the purpose of eating vegetarian anyway, since your mind is craving for that taste of the meat.
2) I ended up taking in a lot more sugars as I start taking more cakes, ice-cream to satisfy my cravings. It is starting to take a toll on me. I am trying to control it.
3) During the holidays, the temptations are bigger as I bring my family out for dining and I meet my friends. The taste buds indulgences are not longer there and I must admit it felt quite sianz at times.
It is defintely a worthy exercise. Also, I am prepare to take meat if there is really no other choices.
But hey, I realize everywhere I go, there is definitely something for me to eat. Macronalds you can eat pancake, Kenny Rogers you can eat cheese macaroni.
I wonder how long I can last. LOL
