How I Lost 6 Lbs in 1 Month | My Weight Loss Tips – Massage Monday #474

Hi everyone. I am Yasuko and it’s time for Massage Monday. Sometimes I get asked for the tips for losing
weight. I wish there were acupressure points that
will vanish unwanted pounds overnight but it doesn’t work that way. I have done videos on the acupressure points
to control appetite or indigestion, etc. and you can watch them here or here. My weight loss tip is simply eat less and
move more but I know it’s easier said than done. However, I was able to lose 6 lbs in 1 month
accidentally but easily before I went to Havasupai. This week I will share how it happened and
other variations of that particular weight loss tip. So how did I lose 6 lbs in 1 month? I ate slowly because I had to. Little bit about my weight. I am 5’2” and my ideal “feel good”
weight is between 113-115 lbs. This is purely from my experience. If I go below 112 lbs, I feel weak. I set my maximum allowable weight to 118 lbs
so I have little bit of room to play because you gotta indulge sometimes. Or at least I do. If my weight goes over 118 lbs, I will do
anything to bring it back down because I know losing is much harder than gaining and I hate
to be on a diet. But few months ago, for the first time, I
let myself go to 122 lbs when I had a rare constipation. TMI but I usually go several times a day so
if I don’t go for one day, that’s a sign of constipation. Although I handled the constipation part easily
with the Share Plum and the acupressure points, which you can see here or here, my weight
was still way over around 120 lbs. One day, I woke up and heard a cracking noise
on my left jaw. I could open my mouth but I had to be careful
how I bite down all the way to avoid the jaw pain. Around the same time, I had to have a dental
procedure to remove a gold filling on the top left and replace with onlay and I had
a temporary filling for two weeks. I guess I tend to chew food on the left side
and when I had the same procedure done earlier this year on the bottom left, I accidentally
chewed a sushi roll and the whole temporary filling came out. It was a big one to cover three teeth and
I had to go back to the dentist to create another temporary filling. So, this time they specifically said “No
sushi!” and I had to be very careful how I chew my food only on my right while avoiding
the jaw pain on the left. And it’s true, if you eat slowly, you get
full faster and I didn’t have to eat that much. And when you eat slowly, you actually get
to enjoy the taste more and I was more mindful and thankful for what was in my mouth. I had seen similar diet tips in Japan like
every time you put the food in your mouth, put down the chopsticks down, or chew 30 times
before you swallow. These will help you slow down your eating
process and you will get full faster and digest better. Anyway, that’s how I was able to naturally
lose 6 lbs in one month and back to my “feel good” weight before the trip. I’m sure my knees and feet were happy to
carry that much less weight during the big hike. If you want to lose weight or avoid gaining
weight, go to your dentist and get a temporary filling. I’m just kidding. Just try to chew your food slower by counting
the number of chews or put down the utensils between the bites. Or use chopsticks if you’ve never used chopsticks. I bet that will really slow down your eating
process. I hope this is helpful for the upcoming Thanksgiving
and holiday season. And I don’t know what to do with the gold
fillings that my dentist saved for me. Let me know if you have any suggestions. Thanks for watching. I’ll see you back next week. Make it a great week. Feel free to comment below and please don’t
