A 20-Something Chick Caught Between Two Worlds

I've always wanted to shed a few pounds ever since high school (10 years ago). Over the years, those "few pounds" have fluctuated between 5 to 20. I finally found the solution to achieving it healthily and permanently - eating clean and working out, duh, right? But I'm still struggling because I simply love food to darn much!

I've been teaching English in South Korea for over four years now, and it looks like I'll be here awhile because I'm getting married to a handsome Korean man ...

I've been teaching English in South Korea for over four years now, and it looks like I'll be here awhile because I'm getting married to a handsome Korean man this coming fall! It's extra tough trying to stay fit in a country where no one really takes it seriously... All these girls here are somehow naturally thin. My coworkers and native friends have a completely incorrect perception on how to lose weight. They are full of shallow advice ("You're fine, just don't eat after 6PM! Here, have another deep-fried pork chop."), which I politely smile and nod at but think to myself, 'WholeFoods needs to come to Korea. NOW.'

That is why I've turned to the online community for help during this frustrating journey!

Hi Yoyo!
Sorry I didn't get your comment till now, since I didn't get any email notifications i assumed i had no messages or anything. *DuMb* emoticon How are you doing lately, a month later? It is difficult to eat clean. I guess, starting with things you like is the easiest. My problem is exercising consistently.

Have you found a time of day that you can work out?
My fave 'clean' foods are veggies steamed. They taste delicious. Now it's getting an entree that tastes good and isn't unhealthy lol Keep in touch!
