病从口入，祸从口出. How true this is!!
You are what you eat. This was further manifested when Dear2 eat and eat and eat during the 3 months at home on maternity leave. Breastfeeding somehow make lactating mummy very hungry all the time, so it was breakfast, early lunch, afternoon snack, dinner, evening snack and a cup of milo and 2 packets of Julie’s butter crackers as supper during the wee hours when Dear2 woke up to breast feed Baby1. The result – the un-shedable 8kg 3 months after delivery. Even the 5 sessions of malay lady massage cum spicy wrap cannot shed that flabby tummy….
You are what you eat, and the more you eat, the hungrier you feel. 2 hours after breakfast at 9am and you feel that you can do with an early lunch. Barely until 3pm and it’s hunger again so time for some cakes. Dinner at 6 is definitely not a problem cos the stomach is growling again. By 9pm, your mouth itches again and it’s half a loaf of curry bread. And the day is not complete without at least 1 cup of hot steaming milo dipped with 6 pieces of the yummy butter crackers. Can I have another packet please?
Most days, Dear2 was always hungry so Dear1 was constantly at the market dabao-ing food for Dear2. And on some nights, Dear2 even got so hungry that it was maggi mee or biscuits milo cos it was impossible to fall back asleep with a roaring stomach….
But… Once Dear2 got back to work and reality set in, it was just-eat-normal- meals. Oh, that protruding tummy is really very ugly indeed, not to mention the despair at being an L/XL versus the old M. *Groan*
The first 2 days was hard, there was the constant growling in the stomach. But hey, suddenly the body adapts to the fact that there’s no more in between meals, and that nudging growl in the stomach was becoming bearable.
Slowly, the less you eat, the less hungry you feel. Amazing!!
You are what you say. How true this is too…
Are you one who says more kind words than bad ones, and are you one who is at ease with things rather than being angry at everything and anything all the time?
Beware!! What you say speak a lot about yourself, your personality. Your loved ones can get bowled over by what you say, yet the same mouth can cause distances to build up. Don’t think that simply being nice to a person alone but nasty to all and you will still gain respect from that person. Your words to others too tell what kind of a person you are…
病从口入，祸从口出. Be selective of what you eat, and be thoughful of what you say.
