As mentioned in my previous posts, I've started on my quest to lose weight and have a healthier lifestyle. I figured, after six months, it would be the perfect time to update everyone.

For those who are new to this post/blog, here's a brief recap.

I wasn't fat when i was younger, not skinny but was rather slim.

I had gained a tremendous amount of weight after Poly due to my unhealthy lifestyle of sinful suppers, binge drinking and the lack of exercise. Having a desk-bound job and the many temptations of snacking only helped to add on more numbers on the weighing scale.

By January this year, more than eight years since i've graduated.. I realised that i've gained 12kg. I had noticed that i gained weight throughout the years but at that time i kept shrugging it off, thinking to myself "it's just 1-2 kg. i'll lose it off soon!" the years passed, the weight increased and i kept making excuses to/for myself.

I've been blessed ever since I started blogging. Ever since I've moved my personal blog in line to a Singapore Lifestyle Blog, I have had the great pleasure of writing about many advertisers and sponsors.

I've been blogging about my new lifestyle change and my current weight loss journey. I've recently been approached by two companies who will be helping me with my new lifestyle!

The first sponsor is....... *drum rolls*

Singapore lifestyle blog, Anti-Oxidant Centre, Ganbanyoku spa, Japanese treatments, Singapore Fitness Blog, Singapore Health Blog

Anti-Oxidant Centre.

Fidelis has kindly recommended the owner Suli to me and he had invited both Ching Chong Boy and myself to try out their services!

Here's some background info on Anti-Oxidant Centre:

Singapore lifestyle blog, Anti-Oxidant Centre, Ganbanyoku spa, Japanese treatments, Singapore Fitness Blog, Singapore Health Blog

Anti-Oxidant Centre is a new concept Japanese Ganban-yoku (rock bathing) spa, providing a sanctuary for the body to rejuvenate itself and give a sense of wellbeing by infusing it with vital antioxidants. Using advances in anti-oxidant technology, the interior of the shop emits negative ions which performs a multitude of remedial functions.

The benefits of the far infrared rays and negative ions from the ganban-yoku therapy include:

• Anti-aging
• Reduced cholesterol levels
• Improved blood circulation
• Relief of pain and stiffness caused by rheumatism
• Increased immune resistance
• Increased metabolic rates and weight loss
• Anti-aging of cells and overall body
• Diabetic sufferers** report reduced sugar levels after multiple treatments
• Cancer patients** report pain relief and improvement of general wellbeing

** Improved health and containment of diseases are based on testimonies of people who have benefited after multiple sessions. Please note we do not claim to cure any form of diseases or illness

Researchers at Hamamatsu University School of Medicine conducted a study in 2008 of the personality effects on 68 women who used the Ganban-yoku. They found a significant improvement of the moods of the women before and after their stone sauna sessions.

Wondering how does the centre look like? Here are some pics!

How does it feel like?

Have you been to a sauna? Where you perspire like mad and it gets way too stuffy to breathe in?

The therapy is similiar to that, minus the stuffyness. You lie down on these "anti-oxidant beds" and you'll perspire like mad afterwards. It works like a detox in my opinion, where you sweat out all the toxins out. Not to worry, you'll be served with Anti-Oxidant water before and after treatments to replenish your fluids.

You can sleep, exercise or catch up on a bit of reading inside. I always bring my iPad in to catch up on my ebooks.

After the session, you will be served with two glasses of enzyme juice. These juices have different benefits and I always feel refreshed after drinking them! My personal favourite is Lemongrass while Ching Chong Boy loves Kiwi!

Personally, do I think it works?

I've gone for about 5 sessions so far and I feel that my muscle aches from weights and running are much lesser after going for the Anti-Oxidant therapy sessions. Ching Chong Boy on the other hand has lost 2kg after going for the sessions! (WTF why i no have?!) I heard from Fidelis that she lost 3kg and her skin has improved drastically after going for the sessions!

We're thinking of trying the yoga and pilates sessions too!

Suli has kindly sponsored both Ching Chong Boy and myself with Anti-Oxidant therapy sessions and I will be sure to update you readers with my progress.

Ever since I announced that I was working hard to lose weight, I seem to encounter a whole bunch of irritating people.

Eh before I do so, I would like go share about this individual who bugged the hell of me BEFORE i started dieting (or wanted to do so.)

"you shouldn't eat that you know?".

Bumped into this momoren once at an event and while we were taking food, momoren told me that my selection of food was high carbs and that I shouldn't eat that.

Wtf?!

1. Did i ask for his/her fucking opinion?
2. I'm not even close to momoren for him/her to go share his/her "advice" to me.
3. In no way, was I dieting then.
4. Momoren ain't exactly slim. Shut the fuck up and lose your fats lah.

Ok. Rant over. After the incident, i remembered never to be such a jackass. In fact, unless people ask me for tips or wanted to know what's my diet like, then i will share with them. I don't shove such irritating remarks down people's throats.

Okay, back to my original post, here's the list of people who irritate me. Yes, colleagues, friends have all done this. Many a times, i wanted tell them to "shut the fuck up" but i think, next time i'll just show them this post instead.

1. Preachers

Every individual's body is different. What may work for me may not work for you and vice versa. Yes, I am on a low carb diet which does at times consist of high fat. In no way, is it a low calorie diet.

When i eat lunch with colleagues and/or friends, these people keep preaching over how "high calorie" or how "fattening" my food is. Do i tell you how every soft drink you consume or how every morsel of rice is just making your fat ass bigger? And since when what I eat is any of their business? They're not even close friends in the first place.

No right? So SHUT THE FUCK UP and stop judging my food. I don't know HOW MANY TIMES I MUST SAY THAT I AM ON A LOW CARB AND NOT LOW CALORIE DIET. Why do people enjoy preaching? I have never asked for any advice from them. Go preach to someone else that bothers. I obtained my weight loss from my own efforts and i'm happy with it. Tsk.

2. Mockers

When i do take some carbs (i am on a low carb NOT no carb) diet, people give me grief about it. "Why are you eating carbs?!" "No more willpower!" Again, SHUT THE FUCK UP. Perhaps these people should go back to school since they do not know the difference between LOW and NO. And hey, what is it to them what I eat?

Another example is when BFF told me about someone putting us down that we both run slowly. What is it to them if we run slowly? It's not the time taken. We generally enjoy running. Who are you to judge and mock us?

3. Why why why

The "why are you doing this?" questioners. They go on and on about how i should be happy with my current size etc. Why mother fucker why?

I'm sick of feeling and looking fat. I wanna be healthier. I want to look good naked. I have a wedding photoshoot next year and i would like to have minimal photoshopping done. But most of all, it's my life, my body. Why do you care so much?

4. Life ain't worth dieting

Right. While I call this as a "diet", it's really a lifestyle change for me. Maybe to you, shoving a tub of icecream down your throat is "life", i prefer being able to run and feel the wind in my hair. I enjoy my "diet". These are things i like to eat. I ain't exactly eating raw celery sticks for all 3 meals okay? By the way, i wonder if you'll still enjoy life when you have diabetes. #justsaying

5. You should stop

People nagging me to:

- Cut down on running
- Stop losing weight

I don't even run THAT much. 3 times a week isn't much. Infact, if possible, we should exercise 5 times a week. Don't believe? Check out HPB's website!

I'm not even trying to lose more weight. Yes, i can and still have more to lose but i am happy with my current size. Am just maintaining and toning up. -_-" Again, what is it to you that i am losing weight?

6. Feeders

These people try to test my willpower. At first, yes it's funny but after a while it's damn irritating.

DO YOU KEEP OFFERING PORK TO A MUSLIM? DO YOU KEEP OFFERING MEAT TO A VEGETARIAN? If you respect their choices, why can't you respect mine?

Freaking irritated with such people. If you've done any of the above, STOP IT NOW!

Ok. Rant over.

I received a lovely kaleidoscope as my invite for Majolica Majorca's Chapter 34 launch. Was very pleased to hear that the venue of the event was at Fullhouse. If you guys remembered, bff and i had visited Fullhouse in KL during our "Girls gone wild" trip last year.

We also visited Fullhouse a few weeks ago with our boys and really like the place. Same pretty concept but seemed a bit smaller than KL's.
