Due to bad eating habit, I’ve been obese since childhood, my cousin sister used to bring me to fast food restaurant and I love fried foods and tidbits, and dislike eating vegetables. I eat what I want; I eat all I want - always feeling hungry after eating. What's worse, I hate to exercise!

 

I weigh more than 100 kg when I was 13/ 14 years old and I have tried various methods to lose weight.

 

At the age of 15/ 16, I was introduced to take slimming pills and treatment by my family doctor. Once I stopped taking slimming pills, I gained weight unexpectedly. 

At the age of 25/ 26, I was introduced to seek assistance from dietitian. After seeing dietitian, instead of losing weight, I gained weight. 

At that point of time, I gave up totally; feeling disheartened. 

First phase of new Tampines town hub was open in November 2016. My mother and I decided to have a look at it, not to forget – grocery shopping. We then came across to a store selling Cambridge Weight Plan products. The banners caught our attentions – lose belly fat in 3 days, reduce 1 size in 2 weeks. Without hesitation, we decided to sit down and understand more on this product. Jessica Wong also shared a few successful stories with us – local and foreign. We did not decide to buy the product as it was costly to us as I was jobless and my mother is working part time.

 

Days later, after careful consideration, we have decided to give it a try – for the sake of losing weight and health. 

One week after taking Cambridge Weight Plan (Step 3), I lost 6.6 KG; we were pleased with the result. I started on Sole Source for about a month – lost another 11.1 KG and step up to Step 3. 
As Chinese New Year was approaching, I have decided to take a break (from Step 3 to Step 5). After Chinese New Year, I have managed to maintain my weight and restarted on Step 3 immediately. Till date, I have lost 26.7 Kg and I have more to lose. I aim to reduce a total of 60 Kg by December 2017.


I have witnessed personal health improvement.

After taking Cambridge Weight Plan, my diet has changed, I choose low calorie and healthy food; eating moderately. If I were to visit fast food restaurant, I would order garden salad or grilled chicken salad. Choosing healthier snack with low/zero calorie is a better choice for me. I fell in love with most vegetables. Most importantly, when it comes to special occasions (buffet, lunch, dinner, etc), I choose vegetables and steamed fish/ steamed chicken breast; no longer interested in fried foods. I love going for long walk and swimming.

 

The following are reasons why I want to lose weight: 
1) I want to be healthy and prevent diseases.
2) I want to look and feel good about myself.
3) I want to be able to walk, run, swim and/or play sports. 
4) I want to be able to get up and down easily.
5) I want to sleep better.

After taking Cambridge Weight Plan, I started to swim and go for long walk. I used to feel breathless, but no longer feeling breathless – I can swim 20 laps continuously and walks 8 KM continuously. 

I have also change my eating habit to eat more vegetable and reduce on fried food and unhealthy tidbits.


I believe persistence can change failure into extraordinary achievement. When it feels tough, you’re doing it right. When your body gets tired, swim with your heart. It’s not pain, it’s exercise-induced discomfort. One step at a time is good walking. I am a slow walker, but I never walk back. A little progress each day adds up to big results. Weight loss can change your whole character. That always amazed me: Shedding pounds does change your personality. It changes your philosophy of life because you recognize that you are capable of using your mind to change your body. One way to get thin is to re-establish a purpose in life. Within you right now is the power to do things you never dreamed possible. This power becomes available to you just as soon as you can change your beliefs. Put all excuses aside and remember this: YOU are capable! 

Thank you, my beloved Mother!
