1) Pills - Bounce back if you stop taking them
2) Jogging - Ended up with only 2KG reduction after 8 months! Cos I eat lots of Carbo to gain energy for jogging. I jogged about 12km per week for 8 months.
3) Expensive and branded slimming centers
Useful - Weight lost from 55KG to 49kg before wedding day in 8 months.
** It's really difficut to loose weight especially youare already not very fat. Just plump. Takes double the effort!
1) Steam/Suana room
Steaming helps! It helps to reduct water retention problem, promote sleeping
I steamed almost 3 times a week. Try steamroom at Gym, friend's Condo. I like it so much and bot a steamroom for myself at $2600. Complextion, Hair and weight management, I call it. There are cheaper options to steamroom. It's called Steam Tent. Search the internet and you will find them. Cost about $200.
2) Cutting down on Carbo intake. Increase Protein and Vit C intake.
I had soup stuff for 8 months. It pays!! Fish soup + bee hoon (no rice and no yellow noodles). Niang Tou Fu, Po Phiah, CHor Bee Hoon, Tang Hoon (chinese - Tong Fen), Vege, Yogurt, Fruits, only wholemeal breads.
3) Make sure you pass motion (big biz) daily. I drink a healthdrink daily and managed to visit toilet 1 to 3 times a day. Some ppl rely on lots of water intake + juice (prune) + Vege
4) Breaking down fats and body toning via neighbourhood beauty salon (AMK and Serangoon) for $1500 for 12 sessions. I tried 2 salons on weight mgt. Both are affordable at <1500 for 12 times. In fact, 1 salon offers unlimted steaming sessions within 3 months. Do look out for such salons. I find that as long as the use below in a single session, it works! No need expensive places with packages of >$3500
a) Machine to breakdown fats / electrodes to firm up
b) Massage to tone
c) Steaming to release toxins
d) Wrapping for sliming and toning
You can see result in 6 sessions!
Honestly, I had beed trying to slim down from 63KG for 4 yrs. Nothing worked well.
For me, I follow strict diet (nothing else) and I reduced very quickly in 1 month. there after, I did steaming. Very effective. Slim down too much and lastly, I did toning at salons.
All was great!! 63KG to 49KG in about 1.5 years.
i also share my experience:
1. Slimming salon: hot/cold blanket: did it before my wedding, only lost 2kg but bounce back after 1 week.
2. Spa/steaming: same to slimming salon, but skin looks better.
3. exercise: Lose little weight but no determation and persistent
4. current acupuncture treatment: lost 9.5kg in 7weeks
laypeng.. my experience is almost similar to urs..
for me spa/salons me and my friends got similar experiences.. bounce back . quite a waste of money. i dont know how it helped, probably for some people it works and people like me dont work? unsure.
exercising: used to do swimming, gyming, cycling, but not really motivated to exercise like very frequently, maybe thats why it didnt help to slim down. used to love swimming before pregnancy.. after that dont dare to wear costume already. but now to maintain figure i exercise.. also more for toning.. i would prefer exercising and having a balanced diet to slimming (more cost effective) as compared to salons..
acup: went to try acup slimming as recommended by chinese doc and friends at marine parade there.. results quite ok satisfactory.. managed to shed off excess.. so far no bounce yet, also trying hard to maintain .
hope this helps.
slimming centre is just an temporary solution for losing weight if you are not going to change your eating habits, sooner or later you will get gain back weight.
As for acunpuncture in marine parade, why it really work. Because it help to improve the metabolism rate so that you can burn more Kcal everyday. Beside that, their program consist of detox, acunpuncture & dietary plan.
After all, you are what you eat.
With this information, hope it help more.

ya can go for consultation first. (=
are you mummy too?
it is depends on your body analysis test result which is about fat mass and health issue.
they have several packages. you should go for consultation first then do a body analysis test to see what my consultant advise.
you can add me as slimming buddy at email@example.com
icic, congrats. are you still on Breastfeeding?
you may go for consultation first and let them advise you the price base on your body issue and fat mass? anyway it is just $10.70 for consultation.
for me 18kg sure need more $$ , fortunately i managed to shed off 17kg and another kg on my own
I have been to a slimming ctr (London weight management). I am very desperate to lose weight then because of husband attitude towards my figure also. Very sad. So what I did was I sgn up for a free trial, but they "force" me to sign up for 5 session which cost me about more than $600. They also tell us EXACTLY what to eat for meals, which actually makes me more hungry as i am still breastfeeding then. Believe me i am having a very bad time there, the consultant are not professional at all. Every session that i went, she will always give me the pressure to sign up for more session. It is very stressing for me as i have budget issue. But i did not continue after that 5 session.
BUT..I found this health suppliment product which actually can boost our metabolism rate therefore act as a fat burner. It is very safe and affordable. It come with a friendly and advisable consultant too. Best of all they dont FORCE...Jolly well reject them if you dont like it..Thats very important. Just like what a slimming ctr does, be on their scale and the scale will tell you the truth rite in front of your eyes. From your body fats, muscle mass, body water, bone mass, metabolic age and visceral fat. Their consultant will do the explnation for you. Its not a pill, its just a delicious shake that comes with 3 different flavour. It is safe, they have their official website that you can check on if you have doubt. It is a health suppliment product which not actually make you lose weight, it will make you feel healthier and younger. It is a breakfast programme, its only breakfast and cost only $3.60 per breakfast for a supply of one month. Once you sign up, you will be on a 10 days trial, after 10 days you are required to come down and weigh in, If you do not lose a kg, GUESS WHAT...they will actually refund your money in cash. Worth trying rite? There is no restriction to what we want to eat for lunch and dinner..Amazing rite.. Interested? Please pm or email me DiaFirIzyan@hotmail.com
One more info 10kg in 2 month is not a problem to them.
I dont know go slimming center can cost so much.
just went for a free consultation at MF. The package they advised me to take comes up to 6.9k without GST. I aint that fat just 65kg for a 1.61m. My pre-pregnancy weight was 55kg. My friend who went for Expressions weighed more than me and is not becoz of pregnancy but rather more of her diet.
She paid around that amount too. Feel a bit apprehensive about this expensive package actually.
I would like to find out about the accupuncture slimming programme. Is it still available??
Anyway, I have started to do exercise. Yeah! Hopefully, this way of slimming down will helps.
I will have to re-look my eating habits as I have a fondness for rice and its one of my main enemies.
Anyone have tried brown rice tea?? My husband took it and managed to shed off weight.

i was on the acupuncture weight management programe previously for my post natal slimming, managed to slim down 18kg and (fat + water retention)
ya my friend just signed up the promotion on july and started on August.so far result not bad but hers is not for post natal slimming, purely for health and beauty.
if you need to go for consultation to understand more how the program able to help on your body can email me for details and contact. my email is firstname.lastname@example.org
do detailed survey before commit instead of join some programe and waste $ 。anyway to slim down Determine and discipline is important, this is what my consultant always reminded me.
brown tea means the green tea with brown rice?
