iVain - Obasan to Hot Mama #3 (My Slimming Journey - Losing 16kg in 3 months) - Lost 2 kg in 5 days!

5 days and I had miraculously Iost 2kg! 

Yes! No exercise at all!

Believe me, this is not an advertorial and not a sponsored post. I am sharing my personal experience! And if I can drop to my ideal (pre-delivery) weight, I will then share more about this salon I am visiting. Because if it doesn't work for me, I don't want any of you to waste money too ^^

But hor, slimming down at such speed is no easy task k? There is really no short cut to slim down. 

When I was preparing for my wedding, I went to gym min 3-4 times a week x 2hrs weekly, 2 times slimming massages a week, injected nano therapy (meso therapy alike), ate vegetables for 2-3 months. But all I lost was a few kilos. It was a very time consuming and tiring regime but I spent relatively same amount of time as I did now. 

The current regime I am undergoing now involves acupuncture slimming treatments and strict diet. I will not elaborate much on the treatments today but will just show you a glimpse of what I had been eating. 

If you are a picky eater, you may need a lot more discipline to keep up with the strict diet, because there are not much to choose from. Hence the less variety of food you eat, the more effort is needed to follow this diet plan. However, if you really want to or need to slim down, I guess nothing is impossible to you! 

I am someone who loves to eat. But I also eat everything. So I guess only the first few days seemed like a torment. Once my body adjust to this diet plan, it seemed to be cooperative as far ^^ 

My friends asked me why did I go through such torment and sacrifice to slim down? I could have just exercise and eat lesser. As I had shared earlier, my body doesn't react as well to exercises. I guess every body is different. Another reason is I don't have as much time as I had before I got married. With two kids, I cannot afford to burn my weekends and after office hours on exercises. I am very lucky that the salon is very near my current office, hence I can go there during lunch time and still have time for my children after work. 

But I wish to share that these treatments and diet plan react differently on everyone. I heard stories of people slimming down 2-3kg overnight and people whom started slow but significant weight loss appeared towards the end of the 20 sessions. The first 2 days I was very stressed too because my body was not responding to the acupuncture treatments and there was no weight loss. I was close to panicking and like most people, I started to grumble that I wasted money again lah... Blah blah blah... 

But the surprise came on the last 3 days when there was a constant weight loss every day! Hurray! Therapist told me that my body is finally responding and responding very well indeed because of the consistency in weight loss. 

I am really looking forward to seeing more weight loss everyday! If you are interested to follow my journey in the making of a hot mama, subscribe to my blog to stay updated of new posts! 

Ta-da! Lets have a look of my 'gourmet' for the last few days! I am thankful I have a great helper who sleeps late every night and wakes up everyday at 6am to prepare my special diet! Thank you, Pyone! I think if I need to prepare the food myself, I won't be so hardworking :P

iVain - Obasan to Hot Mama #2 (My Slimming Journey - Losing 16kg in 3 months) - Start of the Journey!

A bag of cucumbers marked the start of my 10 weeks journey in the Making of Hot Mama.

Yes, that was my dinner. And from 7pm till 7am, I am not supposed to eat or drink anything. Though I am not a big fan of supper and I don't drink a lot of water, I still feel it's gonna be a tough first night! 

Please cheer for me k? 

How to cheer ah? Hmmmm... maybe by not eating in front of me? Hahaha...

Okay lah, I should not mind people eating in front of me. Both my body and soul should be in peace and able to fight off temptation! So don't worry if you want to wave the big fat crispy chicken wings in front of me k! Hahaha...

Oh yes, other than doing a series of close follow-up on my fat-shedding journey, I will also include some interesting sharing/articles on beauty and fashion. Afterall to become a Hot Mama, being slim is insufficient. You also have to have good skin, nice hair, great makeup and impressive fashion sense!

iVain - Obasan to Hot Mama #1 (My Slimming Journey - Losing 16kg in 3 months) - A is my Saviour!

I realized lately I really hate seeing myself in the mirror. Thanks goodness, my round face hasn't gone too 'out of shape' or I might have wanted to smash the mirror :P

And I had been greeted more than once with the comment 'oh! It's u. I cannot recognize you from the back. U look.. Ermmm different...' 

I know they were trying to be nice by using the word 'different'. But I really know that they actually mean I am fat. 

Yes, the Jolene who used to wear size 36, size 1-2 and S-M, cannot even fit into a M size now. I know I am not hopelessly obese but I cannot accept my current self now. 

My good friend, A, recommended me to try her slimming programme. She was like me, put on quite a lot of weight since she gave birth 4 years ago. After years of trying out different slimming 'remedies', she finally found her savior. She lost 7kg in 3 months without exercise, but she went through a torturing diet and acupuncture programme. I saw her in my own eyes and I believe this programme works. 

But somehow I was was hesitant whether go take it up. The costs involved is significant but manageable. However, the uncertainty of the diet schedule and whether it can complement my work nature is what worries me. Being constantly on the move, carbo is something that gives me the energy I need to last till I finished my visits and reached the nearest makan place. Without carbo, I am really not sure if I can last for more than an hr. 

I decided to arrange for an appointment to find out more about this slimming programme from the therapist aka boss herself. I spoke to her once on the phone and she sounds nice and helpful. I believe she can give me some assurance and clarify my doubts. 

I seriously hope this slimming programme will raise my self-confidence from the pit-bottom... And I hope this can also be the savior of whoever experiencing the same stage as me now...

If the consultation turns out well, I hope all of you can join me in my journey from
Obasan to Hot Mama. :)  

Stay Tune!
