So if you’ve followed me since years and years ago, you’d know I’ve been battling fluctuating size issues.
DISCLAIMER: Now, before anyone kills me, I am NOT overweight. In fact, according to my BMI, I’m underweight. BUT you see, I do NOT care about my weight at all. I care about how I LOOK in pics and videos.
I have VERY light bones. Would you believe me if I told you I’ve been sub-40kg(and healthily so) at this exact height? Of course that was a long time ago in secondary school(yes fml I haven’t grown taller since).
The ideal weight to me, at this point, is 42 kg. And when I diet/cut carbs/snack less, I can easily bring it down to 42kg.
BUT BUT BUT, what’s the point of being 42kg when my arms, thighs and belly are still FLABBY???
I have already tried every diet there is. Even took damn strong appetite-suppressant pills in a bid to eat less. And yes, I did lose weight! But light on the scale DOES NOT MEAN SKINNY. Any of you light-weight girls feel my woes???
I really don’t care if I’m 46 or 47 kg, as long as I have skinny arms and thighs and a flat tummy.
So when a hot gf of mine sported some round, cupping bruises on her arms and told me about Slim Couture (when I asked how she got them), my interest was instantly piqued! I thought, “Wah she’s already skinny and chio, why does she still need this??” I mean, it would be perfectly reasonable if she were fat, but she’s not!
Then I was introduced to the world of SPOT REDUCTION with Slim Couture… While Slim Couture serves many clients who want to lose weight in general, they also have clients such as myself, who are already at an ideal weight but just want to shed some flab in specific areas! These are MUCH harder to lose than just general weight IMO!
I will not be touching much on weight loss in this post and my post(s) to come, as it’s not a personal goal to lose weight. My concern is actual loss in inches/cm in the above-mentioned areas! (For those who wish to learn more about how Slim Couture helps with general weight loss, you might wanna check out Yina’s blog post HERE. Quite informative!)
At Slim Couture for the very first time! Yes I think I look nubbad here but you can already spot the flabby right arm! It’s damn xinku to always have to put my arms at my sides so I can kiap (flatten) the flab down plus suck tummy in ALL THE TIME!
I feel like you all will laugh at me cos my IG pics are almost perfect(as in skinny enough) and even the ones in this post aren’t bad. But HOLD IT FIRST. Cos I took before pics and I will post them when I’m done with my treatments so you can compare and judge. :)
Obviously, many ladies deem them to be worthy of the awards cos Slim Couture’s wait list upon payment is about a month long! Their after-5pm appointments are 100% full for the next 4 weeks already, and 95% full for before-5pm!!! VERYYYY grateful they were able to squeeze in my appointments(mine is usually 12pm or 3pm) cos I’ve a lot of filming and shoots coming up and the timing is just nice! Gotta be in tip-top shape for them! If you’ve any important upcoming events like your wedding/photoshoot/Zoukout, best to book in advance so you get the slots you want!
LOL should have taken a pic of my belly when I’m sitting down in this faux leather skirt. It’s super unforgiving. Pics are SO deceiving hahaha. Plus I know my angles well by now. Don’t be fooled by these pics even though I’d be happy if you think I’m this skinny lol.
So yeah, as I’m typing this, I’m halfway through my 8-sessions course. 4 done already! Slim Couture uses all natural TCM methods of guasha (scraping)and baguan (cupping), as well as a diet, to combat your weight/size issues. There is nothing unnatural– no pills, no needles, no foreign substances to consume, or anything unhealthy– no starvation, no weird restrictions on your lifestyle etc. I’ll elaborate on this in my results post, but I can say surely that there are no major changes to my lifestyle, other than eating a lot of cherry tomatoes haha. I love them(esp the round ones) so yay!
This pic was taken after Session 3. I edited away most of the bruising on my thighs cos it’s top secret where they place their baguans hahaha but zero editing to the size of my thighs. My Photoshop skills are also nowhere as good as editing this on tiles la hor. If I made my thighs skinnier, the lines of the tiles will warp #justsaying.
To date, meaning after 3 sessions(results are taken at the start of each session so I don’t have Session 4′s results yet), I’ve lost 1+kg (like I said, I don’t care about my weight so I’m ambivalent about this result haha), and the part that amazes me the most is that I lost 3cm off the circumference of EACH of my thighs, arms, waist and hips!!! 3cm is A LOT cos my frame was already very small to begin with.
Total cm loss is…
18cm. NO. FREAKIN. WAY.
I found it so incredulous, I kept asking Angie(my therapist), “YOU SURE OR NOT? ARE YOU SQUEEZING MY ARM??? MEASURE AGAIN LEH!“
She just laughed and patiently took my measurements again, each time letting me check myself haha. REALLY SMALLER LEH WTF.
To be really honest, after Session 2, I really wanted to give up. I don’t have a lot of flesh(just flab fml) so the guasha was particularly painful for me. The first 2 sessions especially cos my body wasn’t used to it at all. It hurt at my inner arms the most, was very ticklish bordering on pain at the sides of my waist and my abdomen, the rest were okay. Baguan is totally bearable for me.
But Session 3 and 4 were really decent! I’m used to the guasha by now(it REALLY helps you sleep better, every time I go to Slim Couture, I KO like a baby at night haha), so it’s mostly just ticklish for me. I’m VERY ticklish btw lol. But you’ll get used to it in a couple of sessions! And OMG the results! They’re nothing short of spectacular! Now I feel I’m retarded for wanting to quit after 2 sessions hahahha.
Can’t wait to see and share what results the following 4 sessions will deliver! X
