I have been stuffing myself so much over the festive period that I had developed a little extra pooch around my midsection. So no prizes for guessing, but one of my new year resolutions was to lose that flabby tummy. And this is where Marie France Bodyline comes into the picture, well known for their professional consultation services and individually tailored slimming programmes with the latest technologies, plus the fact that they are the reason behind Fann Wong’s fabulous figure now. I knew that I was in good hands.
We spent our Sunday at the grand opening of Active Hive, a lifestyle and fitness company. And we were introduced to their latest high-tech workout, the Minus Calories but I shall digress for now because we spotted Mediacorp actress Kate Pang & her husband Andie Chen with their adorable son, Aden!! So of course, we couldn’t resist requesting for a photo opportunity with them.
We were also very lucky to win the 3rd and 2nd prize of the lucky draw. Even though we were really eyeing the slow juicer because it would have made juice detoxing a breeze. Continue reading →
Imagine my dismay when I tried on some clothes and found my tummy showing. I must have been eating too much on my recent vacation and now I am stuck with a bulging belly. As a stay home mother who does not have the luxury of time to commit to a gym programme or even weekly yoga lessons. Getting to sneak in some exercise in the comforts of my own home at my own time would be ideal. That is why I felt that hulahooping suited my lifestyle.
So while most of us know what a hula hoop is but not many know that there are different types of hula hoops which can help you achieve the slimmer and trimmer waistline you have always dreamt of. Continue reading →
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.
So what is Liposuction? According to Wikipedia, ” Liposuction, also known as lipoplasty (“fat modeling”), liposculpturesuction lipectomy (“suction-assisted fat removal”) or simply lipo, is a cosmetic surgery operation that removes fat from many different sites on the human body. Areas affected can range from the abdomen, thighs and buttocks, to the neck, backs of the arms and elsewhere. “
If the definition and above illustration isn’t enough to make you squeamish. Then this might just make you think twice about considering it. Continue reading →
