flab talk..

I stopped taking my pills yesterday...

Initially, I didn't feel any effects at all after starting on the pills (Panbesy [appetite suppressant], Chitosan [fat absorber] and Mediaxal) last Wednesday. Even after taking the pills, I still had a good appetite and had hunger pangs (as usual) @midnight.I didn't get the usual symptoms like dry mouth, bad temper but I had insomnia from day one. Okay..I'm already insomniac and sleep about 2/3 am usually. But even when I tried sleeping at my usual time, I just couldn't and only managed to fall asleep about 5+ am..mabok man! And from Saturday onwards, I started getting bad nausea and headaches and so I decided to stop taking those pills. And yesterday, I fell asleep at 12am and slept like a baby :)

Strangely enough..I did seem to lose some pounds according to my weighing scale..I'm supposed to be about 55-55.5 kg now (was 58kg when I started). If that's really true, the loss is kinda drastic since I was only on the pills for just 1 week. Could be just water loss though. I don't see any difference actually. My sis said I looked the same as before...

On a more positive note, I started exercising since last Friday. I was thinking that since Mediaxal was supposed to help increase my metabolic rate, I might as well aid it more by exercising. So i went to the gym and spent about 25 minutes on the treadmills and another 20 minutes on the bike..Felt good and I didn't even ache much [considering that I've not exercised for ages]. Told e_rambler about it and he said that I had to run for at least 45 minutes to really have any results, especially if I wanna lose weight..kua kua. Anyway, I'm continuing with my current gym routine till I feel more fit to exercise longer and more strenously. I guess I gotta give myself at least a week..Can't believe that I used to be so fit before..I remember when I was in JC, I ran the 2.4km in @9+mins. I think now, I'll take at least 20 minutes to do that.

Okay, I know I'm not exactly fat...rather, I'm flabby in certain areas like my tummy, thighs and bum. That's probably where all the weight is coming from too. The ideal is to return to my pre-preg size/weight [48kg] which I know is almost impossible. I certainly don't wanna lose any more fats on my boobs or else I'll be minus A size soon! Am not sure what I kinda exercise I should be doing if I wanna concentrate on the problem area only....

This morning, I woke up and couldn't move at all! Looked down and found the li' one sleeping on top of me. The back of his head was resting on my chest and his body on my tummy and his hands still wrapped around li' piggy and he was facing upwards, snoring away...

Don't know how he managed to do it without waking me up..He probably was feeling cold and wanted to snuggle closer and found that position the best :P..I hope he doesn't make this a habit man...

Oh and he did something really cute..When we were playing in bed this evening, I pretended to be asleep and started snoring really loud. He made a face at me, removed his pacifier and placed it into my mouth and patted my head..Hee..he must think I'm the baby.

Hubby has been on reservist for the past 2 weeks and he's into his 3rd and final week. Last week, he was only home about 2 days and since Monday,he's stuck on some navy ship somewhere and is totally uncontactable.

I think tomorrow will be his last day onboard..Hope he'll be home soon. Really miss him man...And I know Aidan misses his daddy too :(

May. 13th, 2004 12:42 am (UTC)
heh seriously..im not sure whether he was callin daddy or just goin 'tatatata'..
May. 12th, 2004 10:16 am (UTC)
HAHHAHAHAHHAHHHAHA!! SO CUTE!! He's really very can-hor, talk n talk away with action some more. He's talking to his daddy, right? Heard he called 'dad-dy'. Seeing him talk n talk really makes me smile all the way..... :-)). 'Wah Say', he also knows how to put the phone back after use. Hahhahahha! My dd will said 'ello......yeah.....yeah' then walk around holding the phone to her ears without talking. Asked her who she is talking to, she said 'papa' :-)). The things that our kids do n say at this age are soo.....heartwarming and adorable
May. 13th, 2004 12:25 am (UTC)
i honestly have no idea what's he sayin and who he;s supposedly talking to tho everyone seems to have heard daddy :P.. Yeah, at least he tried to put back the fone on the cradle after he's done *grin*

yeah..so fun eh..kids at this age..Makes looking after them kinda easy coz of their antics..
May. 12th, 2004 10:48 am (UTC)
Heh so cute...

Did he manage to place the phone back in the cradle?

Actually I meant exercising for more than 45 minutes.. Like brisk walking... Because only after extended exercise does your body start burning fat reserves...
May. 13th, 2004 12:27 am (UTC)
he did after i held on to the cradle coz he was pushing it too far in :P..

It puts a big smile on my face at how Aidan was babbling into the phone and saying daddy! And its so heartwarming how he ended up sleeping ON you, bth, SO ADORABLE!!!!

Do keep up with your exercise and do consider taking up yoga, it really helps to tone up and make the body more flexible. I am sure buzzcut or I can recommend a teacher for you :)

Re: OMGoodness!
yeah..trying to continue exercising tho i can get lazy at times. Hm..am looking to see if my neighbourhood cc has any yoga lessons actually..

May. 12th, 2004 09:12 pm (UTC)
actually, it's his first time during reservist i think..most of the time, he's on land.
May. 12th, 2004 06:35 pm (UTC)
U realise Aidan's walking is quite different form other kids? In the end, he turns out to be the very steady walker - can walk in the pool somemore
May. 13th, 2004 12:39 am (UTC)
aidan walks like an ahpek.Serious..u see his 'kar kui kui' and he walks with his hands swinging on the sides..like some chao ah beng! MIL fears that if he continues walking like that, sooner or later when he grows up, he's gonna get 'hoot' by some buaysong pple :P..
May. 12th, 2004 06:40 pm (UTC)
hey gal.. where did u get e mediaxal fm? i oso 1..!! i juz finish my xenadrine & was thinking wat is reli effective..

& so funny.. when i read abt e part he was sleeping rite on top of u.. ahahah.. he takes u as a mattress la..
May. 12th, 2004 08:22 pm (UTC)
All the pills were prescribed by my doc when I told him i wanna lose weight. Hmm..I thought Xenadrine is quite effective? What abt hydrocut? I heard that works pretty well with exercise..

eh..wanna ask u. What kinda exercise is good to tone the stomach area or rather lessen the fat there? Don't tell me sit-ups hor :(

hmm..1 week and u lost 3kg! that's act good..water loss? dun think so lah... can be so much ah? but since the pills are not doing any good for ur beauty sleep, then it's a good thing that u stopped taking them.. :)

oh, and Aidan is so smart!! keke.. he was blabbering "daddddddddd...yyy... dad dad dad dad daddy......." something like that hor? Awwwwww... so sweet... and the part when he placed the pacifier into ur mouth instead...so cute lo.. kekee...
May. 12th, 2004 10:40 pm (UTC)
actually, most of the time, the major loss is usually water loss if im not mistaken..fats is quite tough to shed unless u do vigorous exercise. Wish i was young like u guys and need not worry abt weight n diet *sob*

I lost about 3 kg on this modified South Beach diet, the weight went really fast in the 1st week and then tapered down in the 2nd week. I'm about 1/2way through the 3rd week now. I agree that it's mostly water and it's really hard to lose it cos I don't see any visible results at all... :(

Don't think I' can achieve my target, am only 1/2way there and I'm already so tired from the lack of carbo.....

But jia you gal! You're doing really great. Just have to keep it from coming back (and that's the hard part imho).

Luv, your sister-in-trying-to-lose-that-flab..... :P
May. 12th, 2004 09:05 pm (UTC)
When I tried out the SBD the last time, the weight loss was really fast too..I think I lost abt 2kg in the first week that time but what was good was that there was inch-loss too..but it's just so tough to keep to that diet. I cant do w/out carbo and the low energy was killing me esp with a hyper kid to tend to. How do u manage especially since you are working? Your modified diet = plus fruits right?

yeah i know wat u mean abt keeping it from comin back. After SBD, i went back to my normal diet + more..*sob* and it all came back..So tough man!

It does feel good to step on the scales when u've supposedly lost weight eh. Jia you to u too. I'm sure your discipline is better than mine..Kudos to you for keeping to the diet for 3 weeks. U can start introducing a li' carbs into ur diet soon right..

I swear Aidan and Macy are born twins to two different mothers and fathers.. I must also upload the clip of her yakking on the phone like him.. lol.

The thing about all this pills and B&B is that once you stop it, the weight comes back sooo fast. You gotta keep at the gym or else it comes back faster than it goes... si bey sian hor?

Hmmm... liposuction???
May. 12th, 2004 09:10 pm (UTC)
heh..upload upload. Send to me!

Agree..but we can't possibly depend on them forever right? There should b a way to keep off the pounds? I guess in the end, exercising is one of the best way. At least B&B is working for you. You should also put down in ur journal how's ur progress with B&B..

heh i'd actually read up about liposuction and tummy tuck. The problem with these is that u do need quite a big of time to recover..(read a few months)..in the case of lipo, one gotta wear a stomach/tummy brace for a while and there's gonna be quite a bit of bruising..Scarring is supposedly inevitable in a tummy tuck..And of coz most of all, both procedures are darn expensive and heh..I don't think i can afford it and wanna go tru all that. Better to try to lose it on our own hehe..
