Ever since I stopped nursing Baby about a month ago, my weight has increased by 1kg. I find that my appetite has decreased and I don’t feel hungry as often as I used to for the past 2yrs 8 months when I was breastfeeding Baby. I used to munch a lot on snacks but my weight would not shoot up. Now, though I exercise and reduce my calorie intake, my weight just won’t budge. It’s stagnant at 45kg. I was 44kg before Baby was conceived. It was down to 43.5kg at one point of time recently but it shot up again after my holiday in Penang and Ipoh. No matter how hard I try now, the 1kg just won’t budge. I have even increased the duration of my workout every morning but darn it, the red needle on my scale just won’t move to the left, why I wonder? I guess age is catching up with me. As we age, our body’s metabolic rate slows down too. I guess I’ll just have to accept my pre-40 year- old body as it is. After all 45kg for a 158cm height frame ain’t too bad eh?
