My Herbalife Testimonial

I've been meaning to update y'all with my Herbalife progress few months ago, tapi tergendala di atas sbb2 yg boleh-tapi-malas nak dielakkan. I wouldn't say my progress is that drastic, since I wasn't really overweight before. My kind of weight loss result could be categorized as "weight loss testimonial utk org suka makan" bcoz seriously, I love good foooood. I can't survive a week without eating pasta! The only difference is, now I eat smaller portion than before. Kalau sepinggan lunch-plate of pasta kat Italiannies tu, macam kne share 3-4 org bcoz MZ and I tak larat nak abiskan semua. So next time when we go there, bleh la kalau sapa2 nak join tolong abiskan the remaining portion tu. hehe.

So anyway, I've lost a total of 8kg and I'm now maintaining my weight at 48kg - which is a grrreat achievement for me (though, I wouldn't mind if I can drop like another kilo or so) bcoz the last time I weighted below 50kg was like 9 years ago; when I was 15! I have also lost a total of 10+ inches all over my body (tapi still nak lose a weebit more here and there), and the major inch-loss of all my body parts is my waist - from 29" to 25", I loike! :D Hey, even my jari pon dah mengecik sket tau bcoz those rings that I used to wear kat jari manis, now kne pakai kat jari tengah dah...

I've also reached my jeans' size target, which is 26 (I'll try not to go any smaller, ok Si Com!) from size 29, and I can now wear most S size bajus! (tapi tgk brand jugak la kan; some brands I wear S size, some M). Oh yea, speaking of baju, I have a few to let go - brand new with tags, brands including Naf Naf, Zara, MNG and Somerset Bay (actually, that's only it). Nanti2 la saya update bila ada masa dan kerajinan yg mengizinkan.

Another thing is, my current basal metabolic age is 20! Which means, my body metabolism functions like a 20-year-old. Dulu masa awal2 buat body analysis tu (about 5 months ago kot), my basal metabolic age was 24. Now, I'm like 4 years younger than my real age! My target is to reach 16 years old, bole? :D

Here's my new before and after pics - full body and close-up (sorry I had to cut you through the nose, sistah). Trust me, that's the only current full body pic I have, so sorry sbb size dia kecik. Kalau resize jadi besau, blur sgt pulak.

I look so much better than before, don't I? Dah tak mcm kne pam dah. Hee..

Another thing I love about Herbalife is that I'm able to change my eating habit to be healthier than before. I have never been so health conscious before I met Herbalife, seriously, bcoz I was once seorg yg SGT kuat makan. I gained 10kg lepas masuk asrama (you should see my pic back then) and since then I have difficulty utk menahan diri dari menguyah. I've learnt that it's more important to change your eating habit than losing weight, bcoz once u're eating the right way, u will definitely lose weight. Tapi kalau eating habit tak tukau, diet la guna segala moyang ubat sekalipon akan gain balik. Which explains why some people gained back after losing weight - it's their eating habits. Eating habits cannot be changed overnight - in my case, after 5-6 months with Herbalife baru dpt adapt with the new eating habits. What I mean by 'new eating habits' is kadar keinginan I utk menguyah munchies like cookies, chocs, biskut, etc dah turun sehingga 70%, kalau makan meal bole tahan lapa sampai 6 hours or more without any snacks in between and perut tak bleh dah sumbat makanan byk2 macam dulu or else I'll feel bloated giler.

I remembered the first 2 months when I started Herbalife adalah stage yg paling menguji kesabaranku. I wanted to lose weight but at the same time I find it so hard to resist food. It ain't easy to change ur eating habits u know, bcoz u have been developing it for years and decades; some since they were little, so harus lah bersabar until your body can finally get used to it bcoz you see, it took about 90-120 days for a person to change his/her eating habits. So kalau before 90 days dah give up, sila lah pulang ke pangkal jalan cepat2 yer. You need some time to train your body to 'forget' the old eating habit, so do ur own body a favor.

I have been consuming Herbalife shakes for 9 months now, and it has become makanan ruji saya, and will always be. I have to have at least one shake a day, jikalau tidak, perasaan bersalah pada badan sendiri kerana meng-feed dgn mknan tahpape akan melanda diri saya. Pernah gak kdg2 takde perasaan nak mkn other food, so I took the shake 2-3 times a day. When I have taken my shakes, then kalau nak makan pasta ker pasto ker tak kisah dah bcoz I know I have feed my system with the nutrients it needs. It's like I'm in control of myself and that feels really grrreat! :D

Lemme share with you a secret that has helped me to achieve my weight loss success. The secret is, everytime when you feel like eating a lot, food that you're not supposed to eat or is bad for ur health, remind yourself that "rasa best tu kejap jer, sampai makanan tu abis ditelan. Lepas tu in the long run sendiri kne tanggung risiko - gemok or sakit". After all, you do have a choice, right? It's all up to youuu.

p/s: Remember my weight-loss contest for my customers? The one yg sape paling byk turun dlm tempoh 3 months akan dpt adiah. Well, I have a winner. It's been awhile, actually. I will update about that too - nanti. She managed to lose 15 kg in 3 months btw!

Ladies, here's something u can do if u're stressed out

I received an interesting email from MZ pasal ketiak dia dan kaum sejenisnya. Who knows it might be the solution to tone down the crankiness and mood-swings during PMS? ;p

Ada Specialnya Bau Ketiak Lelaki

Benarkah bau ketiak lelaki mampu menjadi penawar kepada gejala
tekanan yang dialami oleh wanita? Kenyataan ini dikeluarkan oleh
Bahagian Biologi Manusia di University Pensylvania beberapa tahun lalu. Kajian
dilakukan di sana membuktikan bahawa peluh lelaki membantu kaum wanita
menurunkan tekanan melancarkan perjalanan haid.

Menurut laporan Jurnal Biology of Reproduction America.

Sebelum ini, bau ketiak lelaki yang sengaja " diproses" daripada lelaki yang tidak memakai deodoran digunakan sebagai bahan ujikaji bagi mencari bukti bahawa hidung wanita boleh "digoda" dengan bau lawan sejenisnya.

Dalam uji kaji yang dilakukan, wangian semulajadi itu kemudian di
sapukan ke atas bibir puluhan wanita berumur 25 dan 45 tahun tanpa
memberitahu ia adalah bau peluh lelaki dan hanya diberitahu bahawa mereka sedang menguji satu aroma wangian tersebut.

Enam jam pertama selepas itu, skala mood wanita yang di sapu
wangian yang diperbuat daripada peluh ketiak lelaki tersebut diukur.

Hasilnya sungguh unik. Selain boleh mencerahkan mood, wangian
ketiak lelaki ternyata dapat membuatkan wanita menjadi kurang
tegang.... Dipetik dari majalah PA&MA...Feb 2004.

So kengkawan kalau tengah strees tu .....bolehlah cium ketiak
suami atau boyfriend.

Bagi kaum adam pulak ,simpan bau ketiak tu utk orang tersayang.

Moral of the Story....

So kalau isteri dok tention tu...lepas balik riadah..calit sikit
bau ketiak anda..yang masam tu insyaallah mood dia ok.......

Selamat mencuba dan kepada para isteri jangan dok tension
sangat...nanti kena cium bau ketiak suami.

A Letter For Tony Roma

Dear Tony Roma,

I am writing this to express my melancholy about my recent visit to your restaurant. Don’t worry, it’s not about your service – your service is excellent and ur waiters/waitresses are really friendly and they gave me strawberry-flavored mints before I left ur place. My only resentment is about your menu.

You see, I’m not really a big fan of chicken but when I had a first bite of your Grilled Chicken Spinach Stack, I nearly swooned. It was the most delectable piece of chicken I’ve ever tasted in my life and the melted cheese and spinach topping was an excellent combo, as spinach is one of my favorite veggies and I can never say no to cheesy food. My family loves it too btw. It was so delicious that I longed to have it again, so I went back to your place about a week after my first visit hoping to devour my new favorite dish.

But when I got there, I was told that your cheesy-spinach chicken wasn’t available anymore; that you have removed it from the menu! God knows how broken-hearted I was. I seldom go to Sunway Pyramid you know, bcoz it’s quite far from where I’m staying but I went there the other day just for the sake of your Grilled Chicken Spinach Stack. Why ohhhh whyyy did you discontinue it, Mr. Tony? I do love your farfalle pasta, the one with loads of juicy shrimps; and your Grilled Chicken Asian Salad is marvelous too, but it’s the Grilled Chicken Spinach Stack that has been haunting me in my sleep. Please have it back on your menu. Pwetty pleaseee… I promise I won’t take the tipping that my dad left on the table for you ever ever everr again.

Just in case you've forgotten how your Grilled Chicken Spinach Stack looks like, I'm enclosing a pic of it here.

Royal High-ness

Mirror, mirror on the floor,
who is the tallest of them all?

"I am", says the Black Patent Shoe.
"I stand tall and strong, and my body shines like a black knight in shining armour".

I wonder if I could run in these heels...

The Pwesents

The only birthday pwesents I got this year are from the men in my life - my dad, my bro, and of course, my beau.

I was on the way up to my hotel room alone after having breakfast (my fam went for a vacation at Sunway Lagoon aritu btw) when I received an sms saying,


Seriously, at first I thought it was from Maxis or something but then I realized it was from my dad, so excitedly I hurried to my room and opened up the safe box (I was too excited to remember the numbers that only after the third attempt baru bleh bukak peti tu).

And there it is...

Ain't he suweeeet? Btw, dad mentioned "gifts" coz there were envelopes for my sis and bro as well.

And here's another exciting pwesent which MZ gave me (besides the dozen of roses he delivered to my house).

It's a bag. It's a designer piece. It's cute. It's...

Lulu Guinness Vanity Case, the one I've been drooling since foreverrrr!!! (if 4-5 years ago counts as forever, that is).

It's reaaally cute and big enough to stash in all of my makeups and everything, and it has really fab quotes splashed all over it like, "Don't forget your Lipstick" and "Be a Glamour Girl" and "Couture Forever" and "Put On Your Pearls, Girls!", etc - me so likey!

I got him a little something too btw. Nothing much tho - just a shirt that Superman knows nothing about. Hehh!

My bro gave me a nice black-and-white scarf from Warehouse btw. Love it!
