    Guys, hope you all are fit & healthy.
    Please count me in....

    I need to lose max 10 kgs in 4 months & I hope it is doable with basic life style changes as I did the same before many times.
    (Just that, I don't stick with a plan, and with my busy work/life matters, I end up gaining back everything).

    Nevertheless, I've decided to start now.. so that, I would look good on Christmas. So, that's the motive behind.

    I started the day with a glass of warm water + Lemon juice + honey!

    Took my breakfast at 11 am - which means almost 14+ hrs of intermittent fasting since last night dinner. In between, I only had water.
    You are free to drink black tea/coffee/lemon+honey etc... but strictly without milk or sugar.

    I had 2 slices of bread + 1 omelette as breakfast.
    1 medium banana as desert

    I will have 1 cup of brown rice/fish & Egg plant curry for lunch.
    1 banana as desert

    As for evening snack,
    I will have a cup of Ginger tea - with 1/2 spoon of brown sugar
    1 small patties - backed one as fried ones contains more oil - this one is optional based on availability ;(

    Dinner would be 5 medium string hoppers (on a smaller side)
    Coconut Sambal (smaller qantity)
    Fish curry
    1 banana as desert

    *** Bananas are my weakness, and I really need them to manage my sweet tooth. Else, I may end up having sweets or chocolates, which is tricky.

    As for the exercise....
    I did gardening for 1 hr early in the morning
    It included sweeping, lifting the pots, etc...
    I cleaned my home for 40 mins
    Including sweeping, mopping, dusting etc.... and FYI, my home is huge.

    I will be doing 20 crunching exercise/tummy exercise + 20 mins of skipping in the evening
    I will also walk not jogging, but walking relaxly) to the beach with my H for about 30m with my H later tonight.

    This will probably be my day for the next 30 days or so.....

    I hope to keep my calories below 1800 per day, and I do the check using my fitness pal app.
    I have a smart watch that counts burnt calories while working, walking etc.... So, I know how much I can burn daily.

    Let's update each other's day... and count our weights after 10 days to feel the magic.

    All the very best friends... Let's start
