    LoLz! Speak for yourself.. I'll point out the evilest (is there such word ) food. Kueh lapis (tons of eggs), and soft drinks.
    1 can of soft drinks need few hours of walk to burn the calories. This year my family received almost half a dozen cakes, usually around 10". However we manage to give a few to other relatives. Myself.. I only eat a slice or two per day. I havent try the weight scale though

    It might be water retention. Contrary to popular belief, that doesn't just happen to pregnant ladies or people with kidney problems.

    No change in weight, allowing for the usual fluctuations. But of course didn't eat much junk food either.

    Well, if you do calculations, 2.5 kg of fat = 2500 * 9 calories = 22,500 calories..

    Assuming you eat your normal caloric expenditure and 275 pineapple tarts on top of that...

    I walk for 5 hours from River HongBao => Garden by the bay => Satay by the bay => Marina Barrage.

    Lost some weight and got sun burnt

    Now my skin is red like AngBao

    You should organize an outing. You will lose weight after the exercise
    I eats, shoots & leaves

    Good idea with outing. Long distance walking while carrying double digit kilograms worth of weight would help us all lose weight in no time.

    Weight gain is from water retention + soft drinks that have high sugar-substitutes. (chemical sugar replacements are worse than the real sugar)

    Why do you gorge yourself with 2L of water in 10 min every morning?
