I used to own many tight fitting dresses before I had gotten pregnant. After delivering, I had stopped wearing most of them even though I did manage to lose most of my pregnancy weight eventually. I just felt very conscious of my tummy and would prefer to wear something that could conceal it. But not anymore…
Ever since I had undergone the Prive 360 Shape Up Program, I have managed to slim down my tummy. I am now much more confident wearing these body-hugging dresses.
Read up my past blog entries on my slimming journey:
I just had my final session at Prive Aesthetics before the CNY. I thought I won’t be able to survive having to eat and live a healthier lifestyle but I managed somehow! Just to share some tips on how I tried to control my diet. I thought it would be tough on me because I am quite a pig and I never control what I eat.
Throughout this period, I had abstained from fast food and bubble tea. To cut down on the amount of food I take in daily, I even resorted to using a bowl instead of a large plate. I am so used to doing this now, it feels like a normal daily routine for me. And I guess all these along with the laser lipo treatment and fat burner supplements have helped me to lose more inches!
I just had my 2nd session of treatment at Prive Aesthetics for the 360 ShapeUp Programme. This time round, we had it done on my thighs. If you have not read about my first treatment experience, do check it out HERE. We had the Laser Lipo done on my thighs, unlike traditional Liposuction, this treatment is non-invasive and hence, much safer. The lasers would break down fat cells which was then released through the lymph nodes. Margie took my measurements again so that we could do a comparison after the treatment.
Guess what? I lost 1cm on my right thigh and 1.5cm on my left thigh. In fact, the results were quite obvious. These are the photos I took immediately after the treatment in the toilet. Continue reading →
As you all know I am currently undergoing the Prive Aesthetics 360 ShapeUp Programme, which is a specially tailored slimming programme that involves medically-approved machines for slimming and contouring treatments, a nutritious diet plan, all-natural health supplements and daily exercise.
And being the foodie I am, you must be wondering how am I coping with the given diet? First, let me share with you the recommended diet plan given by Prive Aesthetics.
Diet Plan (only one item is to be selected from each category.)
1 boiled egg/ 1 sausage / 100g low-fat plain yogurt / 1 piece of ham
One serving of fruit only: 4 strawberries, rose apple, orange, 1/2 guava, 1 wedge papaya, yellow pear, kiwi, grapefruit, 1 wedge watermelon, 1/2 dragon fruit
Can be taken at breakfast or lunch (preferably to be taken before 6pm)
Vegetables only (no tofu, no meat, no fruits to be taken at all)
Preparation: Steamed, Boiled, Raw, Stir-fried
List of recommended vegetables: Asparagus, bean sprouts, broccoli, cabage (red or white), capsicum, cauliflower, celery, cucumber, leek, lettuce, spinach, tomato, water-cress, zucchini and green leafy vegetables such as chye-sim, kai lan, nai bai.
This is just a recommended guide, which I find at times too boring so luckily there is an alternative to that. I could simply whip up a dish based on one of the nutritionist recommended recipes by celebrity chef Willin Low. And since I am not a very good cook, I decided to try out one of the simpler dishes which is the Water-cooked Dory with Spring Onion & Ginger.
I went to the supermarket to get the ingredients which is made up of the following items: 2 pieces of dory fillets (couldn’t get dory so I bought snapper), ginger, spring onions, chilli, nai bai cabbage, rice vinegar, light soy sauce, chicken stock, salt and pepper.
To be honest, I was nervous about how the dish would turn out because it would be my first time cooking fish. Watch the video below for the whole cooking process.
And yup, surprisingly, it only took me 10 minutes to whip up this dish. It was that simple and fuss-free. I was also amazed that you did not require oil for this dish which means it very healthy. And most importantly, the fish turned out great and tasted YUMMY! Can’t wait to try out the rest of the recipes, I’m probably going to go for the Tom Yum Seafood Soup next because I love spicy food.
Here is something interesting from my 1st visit to Prive Aesthetics. If you have been following my blog, you would know that I am currently on the 360 ShapeUp Programme. Check out the first video to learn why I decided to give this programme a try.
And if you are interested in the 360 ShapeUp Programme, you should watch the video below, where we have the friendly Margie from Prive Aesthetics explaining to me about everything I needed to know on the 360 ShapeUp Programme.
Remember I mentioned that I intended to lose my excess pregnancy weight and I had made an appointment with Prive Aesthetics to find out more about their 360 ShapeUp Programme? Well, last monday was my first appointment!
I was excited and nervous at the same time but their friendly consultant, Margie made me feel just at home there. I told Margie about my pregnancy weight gain woes and my current lifestyle. I wanted to know what solutions Prive Aesthetics could offer to aid me in my quest for a slimmer body.
She shared with me about the 360 ShapeUp Programme, which is a specially tailored slimming programme that involves medically-approved machines for slimming and contouring treatments, a nutritious diet plan, all-natural health supplements and daily exercise. I was given my own journal to track my daily food intake as part of the programme.
Next, I went for a detailed body analysis before Margie could recommend treatments for me. She took down details which included my weight, height, BMI and body measurements. As I had excess weight around my tummy and thighs. She suggested that I try the Laser Lipo to tackle the stubborn fats around my tummy.
Just a mere week after I had delivered a healthy baby boy, I had managed to lose all but 3kg of my pregnancy weight. Thinking that the rest would eventually go off on its own, I continued my usual lifestyle. Weight is just a number, I told myself. I had tried not to think much about this issue, hoping that it would go off on its own. So sure, my skinny jeans no longer fit, in fact what once used to accentuate my slim, long legs now magnified its flaws instead. Well, I would just wear baggy clothes then since they could cover up.
I didn’t give it much thought until a recent trip to a massage where the masseur casually mentioned that I had a tummy.
It was like a wakeup call for me.
To be honest, it made me feel fat and unattractive.
Determined to do something about my flabby tummy and thighs, I turned to the Internet for solutions. That was when I chanced upon the Prive’s 360 ShapeUp Programme.
I read about how the programme encompasses a healthy and balanced diet, that is coupled with exercise and clinically-proven machines. In fact, I’ve just called to book an appointment with them.
It’s brand new year and the time when most people start making a list of new year resolutions. However, only 59% actually follow through their resolutions, I happen to belong to the category that doesn’t. This is one of the reasons why I don’t usually do resolutions. But not this time, 2014 will be a year of change. I have decided to start living healthy and lose the excess weight I had gained from my pregnancy.
And so to follow through my resolution, I will be counting on Prive’s 360 ShapeUp Programme. Can’t wait to go down for a consultation and see how they can help me.
