Li Xinyu had gone out happily, but she came back crying.
The Li family thought she’d been bullied, so they hurriedly surrounded her and asked her questions.
Li Xinyu didn’t explain. She just looked at Li Huairou and sadly found that her sister was slim and slender—obviously, she hadn’t gained weight. But Li Xinyu still didn’t give up. She asked, “Sister, how much do you weigh?”
Li Huairou suddenly realized that Li Xinyu had finally discovered the fact that she’d gained weight! This reaction was quick enough. She’d thought that Li Xinyu would’ve had to wait until after school started before she found out.
“52 kilograms,” Li Huairou said.
Li Xinyu’s heart was trembling. She was 20 catties heavier than her sister! 20 catties—what kind of idea was that! “Mom, is there any meat in the kitchen? 20 catties of meat?”
[20 catties = 12 kilograms = 26 pounds]
Mama Li didn’t know. “Yes, but not 20 catties of it. Maybe only about 18 catties.”
“Take me to see,” Li Xinyu said with a trembling voice.
When Li Xinyu saw the lump of meat on the chopping board, she couldn’t help crying again.
Papa and Mama Li looked confused. “What’s the matter? You don’t like eating beef? Then, how about I buy pork tomorrow?”
Li Huairou hugged the heartbroken Li Xinyu, dumbfounded. “It’s okay. She just found out that she gained weight, so she was sad.”
It turned out to be like this. Papa and Mama Li looked disapproving. “It’s better to be fatter. It means you’re blessed. Look at your sister, thin as a knife, so ugly.” Li Xinyu was not comforted at all; she also wanted to be as thin as a knife.
Li Xinyu wasn’t giving up, so she called the Luo family. It happened that Luo Xinhe answered the phone. “Luo Xinhe, where’s Luo Huaishan? Not at home?”
“I think she’s upstairs? She’s coming, what’s the matter?” Luo Xinhe was a little impatient.
“How much do you weigh?”
“47 kilograms. What’s the matter? Why are you asking this?” Luo Xinhe was a little puzzled.
Li Xinyu felt that her heart had been severely injured again. She held her chest. “Where’s Luo Huaishan?”
“Coming. What happened?” Luo Huaishan answered the phone while asking Luo Xinhe.
Luo Xinhe shrugged. She also didn’t know why Li Xinyu was going crazy!
“Luo Huaishan, how much do you weigh?”
“Weigh? I don’t remember. I had a physical examination last week. I was 162 centimeters tall and 48 kilograms in weight. What’s wrong?” Luo Huaishan said after thinking about it.
Then she heard a loud cry from the other end of the phone.
Luo Huaishan was taken aback.
The voice was so loud that even Luo Xinhe could hear it. “What’s wrong with her?”
Then Li Huairou’s dumbfounded voice came from the other end of the phone. “It’s okay, she just found out that she gained weight, so she’s sad! A-Shan, don’t worry.”
Luo Huaishan breathed a sigh of relief. She’d thought that something had happened. But when she recalled Li Xinyu’s unstoppable appetite and the Li family’s cooking skills during the short time they’d gotten together, she could understand it.
“Sister, you must talk to her carefully. She can’t take diet pills indiscriminately. Have her exercise more,” Luo Huaishan said.
“Well, I know. Don’t worry.”
After saying a few words, Luo Huaishan hung up the phone.
Luo Xinhe leaned over. “Is Li Xinyu crying because she gained weight? How much has she gained for her to be so sad? I remember she used to be very thin, even thinner than me! The food in the mountain city must be so delicious for her to become like this!”
“I don’t know, but there really are many delicacies in the mountain city. And my parents’ cooking skills are really good,” Luo Huaishan said with a smile.
Luo Xinhe thought, How about I go to visit the mountain city sometime?
On her side, Li Huairou hung up the phone, but Li Xinyu was still crying.
Li Huairou sighed helplessly. “Why don’t you eat less in the future?”
Li Xinyu’s crying abruptly stopped. After hesitating for a long time, she said, “In any case, I won’t eat supper anymore. What if I get up early and run?”
“Probably not enough,” Li Huairou said after thinking about it.
“Then, what if I don’t eat anything except three meals a day?” Li Xinyu made this decision with difficulty.
“Okay! Sister will supervise you in the future.” Li Huairou nodded and said, “Try to lose seven or eight kilograms in the next month.”
The more Li Xinyu thought, the sadder she became. She wasn’t only sad about her weight, but also sad that she wouldn’t be able to eat whatever she wanted in the future. “Sis, why don’t you gain weight?”
Li Huairou said in a complicated tone, “Because I don’t eat as much as you do.” It was true. Although Li Huairou also ate, it wasn’t really that much.
Li Xinyu’s sadness lasted for a long time.
Especially when she ate at night, no longer did she have hot-and-sour noodle hotpot. Instead, it was replaced with a plate of vegetables, a bowl of clear soup, and half a bowl of rice.
For Li Xinyu, eating these was the same as chewing wax. Especially when she smelled the spicy smell in the air and watched the diners feast on their food, Li Xinyu grew even sadder.
After she finished her meal, she hurriedly picked up her school bag and prepared to go home.
She shouldn’t stay in the restaurant in the future. It was unbearable.
“Wait a minute, Xinyu. This bowl of hot-and-sour beef noodles is for the third uncle. Take it back with you while you’re on your way. Yesterday, that third uncle said he wanted to have some.” Papa Li came out of the kitchen and handed a plastic bag to Li Xinyu.
Li Xinyu swallowed and looked at Papa Li with sorrow and indignance. He didn’t know that she was trying to lose weight? How could he do such a cruel thing? What if she couldn’t help but eat it halfway?
Li Huairou smiled helplessly and took it. “Let me do it. By the way, I’ll send Xinyu home too.”
On the way back, Li Xinyu kept peeking at the plastic bag in Li Huairou’s hand, but Li Huairou pretended not to see it.
Li Xinyu went home disappointed. Li Huairou sent the food to the third uncle and came back.
Li Huairou walked to Li Xinyu’s room and asked, leaning against the door. “Are you hungry? I see that you aren’t eating much at night. Although you want to lose weight, you have to do it step by step. You can’t just say that you will eat or won’t eat.”
“I cannot eat.” Li Xinyu turned around with an aggrieved face. “It’s tasteless, I can’t eat it. Sister!”
“Who says you have to lose weight? Mom thought that losing weight meant becoming a vegetarian. Alright now, stop complaining, how about I cook you a bowl of noodles?” Li Huairou said.
“Make less. I’m losing weight,” Li Xinyu said quickly.
“Got it.” Li Huairou turned around and went to the kitchen, where she cooked a bowl of noodles with peas, with the portion size reduced by half.
Li Xinyu even drank the soup until the bowl was clean. After putting down the bowl, her expression was still lingering on the food.
Li Huairou touched her head. “Go do your homework. There are marinated chicken feet in the refrigerator, so eat one if you’re hungry, and don’t eat too much.” Chicken feet were more difficult to chew. One of them could be eaten for a long time, and it was perfect for satisfying cravings.
“Don’t worry, I won’t eat! Eating too much at night is the easiest way to gain weight,” Li Xinyu said solemnly.
But when Li Huairou came back at night, she opened the refrigerator and found that the chicken feet were gone. She sighed helplessly. She felt that Li Xinyu’s weight loss journey was very bumpy!
The next morning, before four o’clock, Li Huairou was pushed awake. She opened her eyes and saw that Li Xinyu was wearing sportswear. “Sis, get up quickly. Let’s go for a run!” She’d eaten a plate of stewed chicken feet, and her heart was full of guilt, so she hadn’t slept well. She felt that she needed to run for an extra half hour in the morning to offset the stewed chicken feet she’d eaten last night.
Of course, Li Huairou got up, and after washing up, she went out for a run with Li Xinyu.
Li Xinyu was full of fighting spirit. She ran all the way without Li Huairou’s urging. The two ran for a while and rested for over an hour.
Li Huairou felt that the stewed chicken feet that she’d eaten last night should have already been digested by now, and she immediately lost her psychological burden. “Sister, that’s already a lot. Let’s go have breakfast!”
Li Huairou nodded. “Okay, what do you want to eat?”
“Sister, let’s go eat hotpot!” Li Xinyu looked at a hotpot restaurant by the side of the road, unable to move.
Li Huairou’s eyes widened. “You want to eat hotpot this early in the morning?”
“Sister, are the hotpot restaurants open? Besides, what’s wrong with this early in the morning? Can’t you eat hotpot early in the morning? You’re discriminating against hot pot!” Li Xinyu said bluntly as she walked towards the hotpot restaurant.
Li Huairou helplessly followed her and entered the hotpot restaurant.
Looking at Li Xinyu, who was eating vigorously, Li Huairou had to admit that Li Xinyu was probably from the mountain city at heart. In a short period of time, from not being able to eat spicy food to being unhappy if not being able to eat spicy food. It only took a few months to fully integrate into the life of the people in the mountain city.
It was just, looking at her like this, it’d probably be impossible for her to lose weight.
“Are you still losing weight?” Li Huairou put down her chopsticks after taking a few bites and drank a bottle of Coke.
“I’m hungry! Besides, it’s breakfast. It doesn’t matter if I eat more for breakfast—I’ll just eat less at night.” Li Xinyu always had good reasons.
The corner of Li Huairou’s mouth twitched slightly. But the thing is that you didn’t eat less at night.
But, forget it, she didn’t think Li Xinyu was too fat, so it was fine. As long as she was happy.
After school started, Li Xinyu lost a lot of weight due to intensive study. In addition, she kept exercising and controlled her diet a little. For a long time, her weight remained at 57 kg. Li Xinyu was very satisfied with this.
On National Day, Luo Xingtang went with Luo Huaishan and Luo Xinhe to the mountain city. Madam Luo said she was going to come, but one of her good sisters was sick, and Madam Luo went to see her, so she didn’t come.
As soon as Luo Xinhe saw Li Xinyu, he laughed. “Li Xinyu, you’re so fat! You sure have gained a lot of weight!”
Li Xinyu rolled her eyes and muttered in a low voice, “A dog’s mouth spits no ivory.”
[ɡou zui li tu bu chu xianɡ ya (狗嘴里吐不出象牙) A metaphor that bad people can’t say good things]
Luo Huaishan smiled. “How come? You haven’t gained much weight, but I think you seem to be a lot paler.”
Luo Xinhe looked carefully and nodded. “Seems a lot whiter. What skincare products do you use?”
Li Xinyu raised her head proudly. “What skincare products? I use baby cream on my face. The reason why my skin got lighter is that the water and soil of the mountain city nourish people. Look, people in mountain cities are very pale.”
Luo Xinhe didn’t believe it.
Li Huairou nodded beside her, confirming Li Xinyu’s words.
“Let’s go, I’ll take you to the hotel first. We can check in, and I’ll take you to eat Chongqing noodles at noon. There are also hot-and-sour noodles, skewers, spicy chicken, maoxuewang, boiled fish, etc,” Li Huairou said with a smile.
“Isn’t Shancheng hotpot very famous? Why don’t we eat hotpot first?” Luo Xinhe asked.
“You know what? This is for your own good, so that your stomach can adapt. Otherwise, if you eat hotpot at the beginning, you could collapse and have to rest in the hotel for the next few days. There’d be no way to go sightseeing then, so it’d be a waste of time. Therefore, hotpot is the last trip,” Li Xinyu said proudly.
