Modeling for Bonitochico (BC), Nov/Dec 2008.
One very good gauge is the pictures when I modeled for BC since 3 years ago.
And goodness, check out those arms, thighs!!
Every single time I see the above picture or so,
It makes me feel that I somehow look like the kim sam soon girl in the Korean drama: my name is kim sam soon
Not sure if it’s a good thing or not but the role was about her being plump but she found her prince at the end. :p
Well, this shows that we should just be ourselves and if we want to lose weight, it should be because of health and ourselves too.
not because we want to get guys!
Anyway, I think why I feel that way is due to the similar looking hair style and the plumpness,
Modeling for Bonitochico (BC), October 2009
A large leap, about a year, but I’m still plump!! Funny thing is we always don’t think so then,
and thought it was fine, not that plump (lol) but in fact when we look back, we go like “wah,
to think I thought my hairstyle was quite nice back then,
or to think that I don’t think im THAT fat tt time (though we know somehow or another, we did put on weight)”
2009 with the love,bonito girls! <3 see how much we all have changed.
Then I got a haircut of a style I really wanted to try and…. It made me look rounder. ☹
December 2009, phuket. gosh, look at that hair!
thank goodness for Salon Vim now.

August 2011, krabi.. maybe I was subconsciously losing weight so that I can wear bikini nicely in krabi!! :p
September 2011, lost a bit of weight I realized.
Sept/October 2011,quite recent
I suppose I did lose a bit of weight huh..
If I were to put the pictures all together, it’s kinda apparent I must say.
But i think most importantly, it's not just about wanting to lose weight,
but it's more of being healthy, wanting to look healthy and hence, eat in moderation for all,
or having regular meals and less snacking.
WHEN I WAS PLUMP
If I really have to think back on how did i start becoming plump,
it would be the constant feasting of fastfood, fried food or high sugar level food - desserts etc.
I suppose I didn't eat in moderation but quite frequent instead.
And to think back, I did go for runs every now and then, and when I was plump,
it does take a toll on me! Recalled that I had quite a bit of trouble running,
even for just a short distance (about 5-10 minutes)- took a long while to regain back my normal breathing and had slight breathing difficulties.
I’m quite shocked to know that too since I used to run like 3-4 times a week back in poly days?
Besides that, I hate to admit that after just climbing one flight of stairs, I panted pretty heavily for a while. ;(
A bit disgraceful I know, then I will try my best to get back the normal breathing asap in case anyone talks to me and realized that heavy breathing – just because of a flight of stairs?
HOW DID I LOSE WEIGHT
I thought about how did I lose weight, and to think back now, I somehow got it all figured out exactly.
Definitely not something new, but because I personally experienced it, the level of understanding towards these two simple aspects is tremendous!
Though there are a bunch of people who dislike exercising or are loaded with work, and as much as you want to exercise,
there is no energy left at the end of the day for exercising. (well, time is managed by us so I won’t say no time to exercise).
I suppose I can comprehend this point, and in my personal very frank opinion, DIET is the utmost main factor on how you can control /lose your weight.
Truth to be told, there were many a time I was asking female friends on how did they lose weight, what is their daily diet like etc.
And I came to realize there were a couple of friends (names will not be mentioned!) who do take slimming products to control the weight in fact.
It’s was pretty scary to know of that, cuz I have been quite skeptical about slimming products all along.
True enough, I went to read up on articles/ forums and review about some of those products,
and there are even websites that are selling them at DISCOUNTED price online?!!
Not just that, there were so many incidents around about people having side effects/ severe health consequences after taking those products or so,.
And statistics even show:
over 50% of medicines purchased online from illegal sites are counterfeit or substandard,
1 MILLION illegal medicines were confiscated in 2010, and 694 websites were engaged in illegal activity in 2010.
DON’T RISK FOR THIS..
I know a friend who rely on slimming products (though yes, she lost quite a bit of weight over a short time frame),
then curious me went to ask her in-depth about her weight-loss ways.
I was in disbelief when she showed me a website (shall not mention the name of the site) selling the different kind of brands for slimming products and ITS CHEAP!!
Way cheaper than I thought.
But she mentioned to me she does get severe headaches,
sometimes puking and total loss of appetite for the period she consumed the slimming products,
and she thought she was just feeling ill for a while, but it prolonged only to realize its cuz she was consuming the pills.
Of course, we all still want the health and she stopped immediately after consulting the doctor cuz like what I though-
The pills are not recognized appropriately, must be really dangerous.
How dubious it can be…. Do you really think there is such good thing in life??
To me, NO, there is no free lunch in the world, and everything must be worked for.
Even if there are times when I received some good stuff randomly,
those will be times when I will just consider myself lucky and be very contented cum thankful that I got to received that.
Well, and I would just constitute the discounted price of slimming products to reasons like the products having undeclared potent & harmful substances or a lack of care in mixing the prescription in the products.
Cuz afterall, those brand-less websites just want to earn money and get our business,
so even what if I became slim but have like health problems?
How can I seriously enjoy my life. No way am I going to risk my health like that.
READ IT HERE and you will know the dangers!
THE BEST WAY TO LOSE WEIGHT
As much as I know that I was putting on quite an amount of weight back then, I got pretty terrified by those articles about people having problems after consuming slimming products.
So then I decided to go the BEST AND SAFEST WAY, get a good healthy diet and do exercise from time to time.
Yes I know, easier said to be done, when im a foodie. But each time I lack of motivation to do exercise when I have the chance to etc, I’ll think of this fact:
“ I EXERCISE TO EAT”
Well, there’s cure for foodies!! EAT whatever you want, but exercise to eat, think of the results after- you can freely eat what you want in moderation, but exercise!
Of course for those who not just want to maintain but lose weight, diet should be controlled too, and try to cut down on sweet stuff and fried stuff, like bubbletea, desserts or fast food.
At the same time, it's important to note that, everything should be eaten in moderation,
it might not do anything to your weight or so, but it might affect the internal body system, which might result in other problems..
You have heard it many times just like me, but simple logic yet holding so much truth in it.
Congratulations to daddykins, am proud to attend the Investiture of the 2011 national day awards at UCC@NUS,
whereby daddykins will be presented with an award by Singapore's current president, Tony Tan.
Dress code was formal, so here am I decked in LB's black dress,
and spicing it up with a bit of colours by holding along a sweet pink ruched clutch from Princessess,
adore the classy design of the clutch and it looks better in real life to be honest!
Mummykins & Daddykins, looking all pretty and suave.
With Mr Tony Tan.
Went out one evening, donned in my own lacey top together with a rich orange colour flare long skirt from ,
I always have a thing for skirts like this cuz it's so easy to wear and very comfortable to move around as well.
I actually feel myself having a tad of hair loss problem, and went to consult a hair care specialist last week for the first time.
Hopefully it will help in some ways..
More of myself in oh! poupée's preppy colour skirt, and carrying another of my versatile bag from Princessess!
This bag from Princessess came in a gorgeous rose shade, and it goes well with most of my outfits in fact.
Have been frequently using this since i received it, and it can store a lot of things at the same time, eg. my wallet, DSLR, etc!
Last but not least,
here's another outift of the week!
A greenish chiffon dress from that brightens up my day with its bright cum chirpy shade!
Definitely something i would wear it out for a weekend brunch with girlfriends <3
