Often, when you fall in love, that’s when you start showering each other with SO MUCH LOVE- which of course includes going out for nice dinners, adding extra ingredients for takeaways, and basically just lazing at home together, tucking into pizza or even snacks while snuggling up for movies…
And with that, it didn’t take too long before I ballooned into something that I could no longer face:
I’ve after all made my name as the Bikini Model who has clinched 3 Best Body awards in a row; Best Model of the World, Miss Singapore International and Miss Scuba…
Competing against so many amazing ladies with beautiful physique, I was fortunate enough to stand out someway or another.
Having been the perfect size 6, it has most certainly taken a toll on me when my free size clothes no longer fit and my fats are just bulging out from all these beautiful bathing suits that I used to collect.
Especially when I have to be in the spotlight and on camera most of the time, it’s extra essential to look good in every angle and being pudgy just doesn’t make the cut
(Looking back, I really used to be so slim):
Of course, as a strong believer that exercising is the way to slim down…
I tried so hard, running, swimming and even rock climbing to compensate for all the late night suppers and buffets that I go to:
I did manage to gain some muscles on my arms after working out religiously, but my waistline definitely didn’t budge at all. Having muscles on top of my fats actually resulted in me looking much bigger than my usual petite size and there’s no way I could regain the chiseled look that I used to have.
Even though 51kg is supposedly a healthy range for my height, my body fats percentage is way too high.
That is why some people can look slimmer than me, despite being heavier because they have higher muscles mass and lower body fats level!
Judging from how flabby I am at this weight (based on my appearance, I looked more like a 60kg than what’s reflected on the scale), I probably have really light bones.
If you had asked me 2 years ago:
“Do you think you would ever be fat one day?”
I would have confidently told you that it’s impossible based on my family’s history.
My entire family’s genetic is SUPER SLIM. My mum flaunts a size S figure even after giving birth to 3 children and my dad still wears a size 30 pants at age 55.
Would I have imagined that I would need the help of experts to bring back my physique? Probably never.
I have already ruined my diet by having all the big meals which have expanded my stomach’s capacity (I hate wasting food, so I tend to finish up everything that my boyfriend gets for me) and it has proven to be too difficult for me to restrict my diet without binge eating at night.
So here I am, today. At my wits’ end after my futile attempt to diet, exercise, and what not…
I know that if I do not take the step out of my comfort zone to put a stop to my rapid weight gain today, I would really lose my confidence to be in front of the camera again.
I’m already feeling more optimistic with the expert’s’ confidence in my weight loss programme. They have assured me that I would only have to go through a weekly regime and follow through diligently to reduce at least 5 kg and increase my muscles mass within 3 months!
Let’s get cracking!
But before that, I’d still have to face the reality that I’ve been avoiding for sometime… the size of my waistline:
Unbelievable. 30 inches?! HOW DID I EVEN GET THERE?!?!!?
Apparently it was mainly due to me being nocturnal and also my habit of drinking water before sleep.
So the plan is to help me get rid of as much water retention as possible with this slimming wrap!
Then they added these detox slimming heat pads and had me lie on the bed that also slowly warms up so that I would sweat it out:
And all I had to do… was of course to SLEEP and ENJOY a massage from my awesome therapist!
When I woke up, I LOST 3 INCHES.
My waist went down from 30 inches to now 27 inches (I even purposefully breathed out my stomach for the measurement, so that I could be more stringent with the end results). I mean, who are you kidding? Immediate results?
Not only if I witness it myself:
After removing the excess water in my body, it’s time to break down the fat cells!
The Radiofrequency (RF) cavitation treatment is a procedure that uses the RF energy device to heat up and tighten tissue to boost blood flow and break down cellulite and fat:
RF energy heats the skin without damaging it, in order to break down fatty cells and stimulate collagen production, which improves skin tone and elasticity.
Such treatment can be used to treat excess pockets of fat on the stomach, hips and thighs, reduce cellulite and tighten saggy skin caused by weight loss or pregnancy. The treatment is very safe and has minimal downtime.
It is perfect for people like me, who wishes to effectively contour body, reduce fatty deposits and improve the appearance of cellulite!
Finally, FREEZE THE FATS (YES! You evil thing that shouldn’t have existed in the first place!)
This new technology freezes away stubborn fats; my biggest enemy.
We all know that it’s really hard to eliminate these stubborn fat that resists all efforts from diet and exercise, but this procedure known as Cryolipolysis; where fat cells self-destruct when the skin gets cold enough, is the solution!
“Never would I have expected that slimming down can actually be such a breeze.” – ps. Of course it requires you to be diligent to stick with the programme, but I can assure you that IT IS A BREEZE as compared to exercising… FOR SURE.
To be very honest with you, I too, was very skeptical about what slimming centres have to offer, as we often see “IMMEDIATE RESULTS!” advertised across billboards and newspapers.
Like I said, I didn’t buy it until I experienced it for myself.
Here are some of the reasons why I chose Theresa Beauty:
1) For their 28 years of history (trusted brand) as a 1 stop beauty solution where I can complete all my beauty rituals; from facial to massage and slimming, all at once!
2) Impeccable service (their therapists are all super attentive, meticulous and professional)
3) Extremely convenient for me since they have 6 outlets located all islandwide (near my place!)
But most of all, they are extremely strict with their slimming programme, ensuring that I’m not only doing all the physical treatments but also treating my body internally.
Because it really doesn’t matter what you do on the outside if you’re still going to eat all the junk food that doesn’t help your bowel movement and toxins removal (constipation is also one of the major cause of weight gain, so it’s crucial to cleanse your body naturally.)
Here’s my extensive cleansing agenda specially planned out with their detox juice imported from France!
ps. I used to skip meals and go on diet in hope to slim down, which obviously doesn’t last for too long. These healthy juices keep me filled up and energized through the day!
While the cleansing juices ensure that I’m having a proper and healthy diet, the Teatox from Theresa aids me with detoxification and the reduction of water retention.
