    Good evening ๐Ÿ˜˜

    Have been MIA for a while๐Ÿคญ Been busy settling down and get our shop ready. We finally opened this Monday... fingers crossed ๐Ÿคž๐Ÿคž๐Ÿคž

    As mentioned before, we moved back to the city. Finally, kids have settled into their new school and we finally opened our shop๐Ÿ˜ Now, hopefully I can get back to my normal OMAD routine๐Ÿคž

    The bad news first... boy oh boy have I gained weight. I have been eating like crazy coz when I am stressed, I pig out๐Ÿท๐Ÿ˜ญ

    So, am making this official and I start my journey once again

    SW - 61kg
    GW - 52kg (that's what I got down to last year)

    Wish me luck๐Ÿ€

    Good night OMAD-ers ๐Ÿ˜˜

    Good evening OMAD-ers ๐Ÿ˜˜

    It was quite a good day even though AF came โค๏ธ I managed to OMAD today and exercise for 40 mins.

    Will only weigh myself after AF leaves๐Ÿ˜˜

    Good evening OMAD-ers ๐Ÿ˜˜

    CW : 60.7kg

    Am pretty happy to see some weight loss๐Ÿค— Have been exercising daily and eat whatever I want on my OMAD. You know, I discovered that I begun to gain weight as I started to yearn to eat all the food which I prevented myself in eating. It wasn't the right way to go as I couldn't maintain my weight of 52kg which I hit in 2019. So, this time around, I am going to eat what I crave for when I OMAD. Not sure if it will work but am going to try. ๐Ÿคž Wish me luck๐Ÿ€

    It has been a while since I had Vietnamese Roll (Banh Mi) and it was just delicious ๐Ÿคค That was my OMAD for today and I was satisfied๐Ÿค— Managed to zumba for 35 mins today without my vertigo acting up๐Ÿ™๐Ÿ‘Œ

    So all in all.. a good day๐Ÿ˜‰๐Ÿฅฐ

    That's what I had for OMAD today... Curry Fish Fillet with Mixed Veggies on Rice๐Ÿ› DH wanted for have that for his lunch and so be it coz I love it too๐Ÿ˜

    Good afternoon OMADers ๐Ÿ˜˜

    CW: 60.6kg

    Even though its only 0.1kg loss, I am still very happy. Not only that, I am now eating whatever I want so that I don't crave after my OMAD. Hope this will work for someone who loves food๐Ÿค”๐Ÿ˜‚๐Ÿ™

    Am going to try to exercise a minimum of 20 mins per day and am hoping that my vertigo doesn't acts up๐Ÿคž

    Keep up the good work, you guysโค๏ธ

    Wow. You've had a lot on your plate recently! I think last year hit us all like a bus. Sounds like you're kicking some major butt though!

    Pretty happy to see 0.1kg down๐Ÿ˜Š I know it's not much but it better than nothing ๐Ÿ˜

    OOO that dish looks so good!
    I wish we had more authentic Asian food here. We've always had Korean food places. Only within the last few years have we gotten a couple of Vietnamese restaurants, but all of our Chinese places only sell Americanized dishes. I would love to try real Chinese food one day. I watch a lot of food vlogs and always get so jealous at the delicious stuff they can get lol.

    Thank you @LiLee2018 <3 We love Korean food too <3 I make my own Kimchi...so, most of the time, I will always have a spoon or two of kimchi which I eat with everything...lol. Do you have any Malaysian or Singaporean restaurants over at your place? They will surely have Char Kway Teow <3

    Good afternoon OMADers ๐Ÿ˜˜

    CW :60.5kg

    No change during weigh-in this morning ๐Ÿคจ Oh well, might be because I didn't drink enough of water? ๐Ÿ’ฆ Oh well..will continue till I see some weight loss.

    Had a huge OMAD today. Started with Thai Basil Chicken with Egg and Rice. Finished off with Milk Tea and 1/3 piece of Black Forest Cake (gave DH the rest before I gobble it up๐Ÿ˜…)

    JP your food looks soooo good! Nice you found an omad eating routine that keeps you happy and satisfied. It's too dang hard to follow if we don't enjoy our food.
    Zumba is so much fun isn't it? I was shocked at how challenging it is.
    What kind of shop did you guys open? Congrats on your new business! I hope it's fun and very lucrative :)
