As promised, I'm going to share with you all about the firming and cellulite cream for face and body!

Before I show you the products, let's see my round and chubby face 6 months ago 0_o

I feel like slapping myself for ten times whenever I look at this photo. I still remember my hubby called me "Fatty" that time (*≧m≦*)

Managed to shed 1kg but I was still out of shape. Basically I only took photos with my son because I wanna capture all the precious moments as you know, babies grow up far too quickly.

Photo with Ken after his very first hair cut. He looked so big in this pic


DSC00053b
Still haven't signed up for slimming treatment and did not lose any weight. Wearing sleeveless top unveiled my gigantic flabby arms :(


DSC00832b
Just couldn't accept my face looked so much bigger when taking photos and where's my neck???


DSC01798b
After few sessions of the slimming treatment and combined with the strict diet plan, 3kgs just said BYE BYE to me. Ken has grown up and no longer looked like a newborn


DSC01650b
Finally I could fit in the new jeans that Ringo bought for me (^▽^) Getting closer to my targeted weight and body shape....

Baby Ken in smart casual look. I SLIMMED DOWN successfully and my chubby face is gone \(*T▽T*)/


DSC03653b
Now baby Ken's face looks so much rounder compared to mine :D


P9010823b
Full length photo with my V-shape face (looks more like a U-shape) but I guess I just can't make my face sharper unless I go for BOTOX



It's time to unveil the secrets!


P9171170ba
Nu Skin Galvanic Face Spa (RM1375). A small and portable device that aids detoxification and lymphatic drainage for a brighter and younger complexion. Bought this because the price is about the same with the facial treatment course that offers 6 facial therapy sessions. So I think the price is still reasonable.


It's selling like a hot cake and there are so many celebrities are using it!


How does this device lock your age and make you looks 10 years younger? After doing some research online, I found out that it's using self-adjusting current system that helps lymphatic drainage as well as deliver nutrients to the skin. It's designed to work with its facial treatment gel to address aging problem and it works GENETICALLY to increase cell turnover rate and repair. Sounds powerful right?


After 4 treatments using the galvanic face spa, the most visible result is the lifting around eyes area. I also noticed the dehydration problem on my cheek improved. I forgot to take photos before I started using this. So it's hard to see comparison but you can google and there'll be more than thousands of testimonials.


I tested it on my mother-in-law's face and the result was surprising! The treated side was obviously lift up and I just couldn't believe it!



DSC03657b
Besides Nu Skin, I'm also using Clarin's Shaping Facial Lift Lipo-drain Serum (RM230). But guess this will not be my repeat purchase since Nu Skin can actually deliver better result


DSC03663b
As for neck, I invested in Estee Lauder's Ultimate Lift Age-correcting Creme after reading positive comments on the web (RM430 for 50ml).


P9171146b
Tadaa...... Slim or not?


P9090989b
Bought full set of Collistar slimming products at Sasa

P9090979b
Sea-salt body scrub (about RM145). It gives a warming sensation which I love very much because I think it can help to burn fat faster!


P7050406b
Intensive abdomen and hip lotion with plant stem cells (about RM160). For night use only.


DSC03661b
Right: Anticellulite Thermal Cream (RM195) Left: Intensive firming cream  (FOC). Started to use this after I finished my slimming treatments. I applied the anticellulite cream after the abdomen and hip lotion mentioned above every night and my thighs reduced by half a inch.


DSC03662b
Clarins' Extra Firming Lotion. Heard it's quite good and thus gave a try but I have not started to use.


P9171154b
Nu Skin's Galvanic Body Spa (RM1375). Original price about RM1,800 but I purchased it during the launching month so it was so much cheaper! As you know, from 60kgs back to 38kgs, the skin will lose its elasticity and I desperately need good firming products. This device can help firming, slimming and shaping. 3 in one!!!


Used twice on my abdomen, thighs and hips. It does help to lighten my stretchmarks and reduce cellulite! I think it will work to give a lift to my butt. 3 times a week, I will continue to use it consistently! Will update the result once I get to see a more visible one.


I dare not to say I'm very successful, but I did achieve my targeted weight and body shape. Trust me, everyone can do it! What you have to do is to be STRICT to yourself. Mee hoon soup and plain oatmeal are just so nice to help you to lose weight! Exercises are wonderful and applying cream is a relaxing treat! It's your determination and persistence that can transform you into a beautiful lady!

And lastly, let me motivate you using this photo! This is the "BODY" in my post title to attract you. Haha ..... (*⌒∇⌒*)


There are no ugly women, only lazy ones. GANBATE!

I love to spend time with my little boy. Be it conversation, play, feeding, changing, or getting ready for a nap. I always try my best to give him full and undivided attention (except his night-waking time).



Being a parent can be one of the most difficult and rewarding jobs around (^o^)

How to slim down after childbirth



This post is dedicated to all my readers who are keen to know how did I regain my pre-pregnancy weight and body shape. Say LOVE ME okay?


And of course, my slimming plans are not only for mummies, it’s actually for ALL who wishes to have wonderful silhouette.


I started my slimming plan after 4 months of childbirth. Reason being was my body was particularly weak and I took a lot of traditional Chinese herbs soup and consumed D.O.M. on every alternate day up to 3 months. D.O.M is strictly prohibited if you want to lose weight as it contains high level of sugar.


The fastest way to lose weight is to CONTROL YOUR DIET. There’s no shortcut!


Here you go, my NO-HUNGER DIET menu. My everyday menu throughout the slimming course was extremely boring and tasteless.




Breakfast –2 boiled eggs + 1 bowl of plain oatmeal + one small apple

It’s PLAIN oatmeal, without condensed milk or MILO. I couldn’t get use to the taste at the beginning , so I added a spoon of honey. Subsequently I ate the oatmeal by adding the Japanese seaweed seasoning and after 2 weeks, I could finally swallow the tasteless plain oatmeal.


Lunch – Meehoon soup + One dish from Menu one*


Dinner – Steamed veggie with osyster sauce + One dish from Menu one* (small portion)


Menu one* –Yong tauhu, veggie, fishballs, meatball, steamed fish, grilled chicken and etc. as long as they are steamed or stewed.


For dinner, it would be good if you could take only Steamed veggie with osyster sauce + 1 bowl of unsweetened cereal. Sometime I just took one huge portion of steamed veggie with osyster sauce and it could last the whole night.


Tips for the above diet plan is to make sure you are 70% full. If you feel hungry after a meal, you can drink unsweetened soy bean milk or cereal to fill your stomach. That’s why it’s called NO-HUNGER DIET.




RESULT?


It was amazing! I lost 1kg per week. And of course have to combine with the slimming treatments to get the optimal results. I believe good diet plan + slimming treatment or exercise will make the weight loss process faster.


This is the slimming package that I signed up.


Ultra-energy magnetic cellulite and slimming treatment.


P8210745b
This method encourages the natural drainage of the lymph from the tissues, and also enhanced the fat burning process.


P7010400b
After the treatment.


Perhaps you never heard it before but it did work well on me! After 20 sessions, I shed 6kgs in 7 weeks by strictly following the above diet plan. Don't ever think of taking deep fried food, curry or anything very oily and sweet because I could see the body fat index increased even weight maintained.


Apart from the abovementioned, I also invested in sleeping socks to reduce water retention.

P8010413b
Super comfy! Not sure about the results as I'm not using this alone. I also purchased some sea salt for foot spa to reduce water retention.


P8160718b
Sea salt purchased from pharmacy. I put half of the packet into the warm water and soaked my foot for 20 minutes twice a week.


DSC01177b
Peppermint reviving foot soak from Body Shop. Leaving my legs smooth and silky after spa.


DSC01179b
Sea salt with peppermint. It smells like Mentos.


If you have no time for slimming treatment and can't resist the good food, then you definitely need this


SHAPEWEAR (^▽^)



Pelvic changes will cause the gap to widen during pregnancy. I had severe pelvic pain during my 2nd trimester, and even after childbirth, I had problem on getting up from bed. Pain was relieved and I recovered after using bengkung and pelvic belt (as mentioned in the earlier post) during my confinement.


When I resumed work, I just couldn't wear the bengkung and pelvic belt and thus, I chose to get a girdle and a waist nipper to close the gap.


I think shapewear is a every-mama-should-have item after childbirth to shape your body and close the pelvic gap. Not only that, the shapewear also firmed my skin, reduced cellulite and lightened stretch marks (*^▽^*)


I know wearing it for the first time may not be comfortable but for the sake of health and beauty, I got used to it within few days.


I just cant accept my flabby stomach bulging out when I sit down or bend my body. I believe this is also something that is hardly to be accepted by all new mamas rite?


After slimming down, I had been considering a few brands in order to get a value-for-money shapewear. After some research and price comparison, I decided to buy Premium Beautiful shapewear, a wellknown shapewear brand amongst Malays, sold by Hai O Markeiting. Didn't not know that Hai O is doing that well in Malay market. Obviously many many Malays are wearing it and this is selling like a hot cake!


Wanna know how good is this Premium Beautiful? Check out the photos below.

Normal corset. since nude color will make my body slightly bigger, thus I have desaturated the photo for better comparison.



DSC03618b
My Premium Beautiful shapewear (just bought it few days ago). It really gives a wonderful silhouette! Love the back design as I can always pull the string to adjust the tightness on the waist line. This is the best waist nipper honestly!!!


DSC03615b
With Premium Beautiful shapewear on, my waist is now 23 inches. OMG! Even slimmer than the time before I got pregnant (/^▽^)/


And the price is so much cheaper compared to other brands. It's about RM2k for one set (bra, waist nipper and girdle) and it offers lifetime warranty!!!


If you are interested to get one, you can drop me a message or email me at ichigo2706@yahoo.com


I can get my friend to arrange for a free trial.




WHAT'S NEXT?

After slimming down, your face and neck will somehow have some sagging problem as skin will loose its firmness.

How to firm up the sagging face and neck so that you will look fabulous that makes everyone doubts you are already a mum?

Check out the tips and products that I use for neck and face firming in the coming post okay?
