Weighing about 60kg at the height of 158cm made me borderline overweight..In fact it went up to 64kg at one point of time..I tried everything within my means to lose weight- skip dinner, exercise everyday for almost an hour even during fasting season, no-carb diet. None of these tricks went beyond the first week for an obvious reason..I cannot give up meals and exercise without proper nutrition would not make big difference.

Started on Herbalife in early 2007 when I was stuck at 60kg with big bum and hip.LOL. It wasn’t an easy decision but real life testimonial from my good friend and extensive research for the past 25 years on COMPLETE NUTRITION convinced me to give it a try..I modified it a bit to fit into my lifestyle but stick to its principle..Alhamdulilllah, it took me about 2 weeks to notice the early change and by the end of first month, I was practically beaming with joy.

After 3 months I managed to shed 7kg and lost about 20cm –big success in my personal achievement. I feel healthier, lighter and more confident with myself.. Never thought that I could fit into size M when it used to be XL and my pant shrunk from 32 to 28..On top of that, i didnt go through any starvation to succeed and my migraine-gastritis combo also improved..

This year marked my 4th year with Herbalife..I’m happy to say that even after I stopped taking it on a regular basis (daily) for about 3 years,my weight remained 52-53kg and still wear the same size of clothes..So, I’m a living proof that Herbalife does not cause yo-yo diet..I only make sure I eat healthily (most of the time,ehehe) and that’s it…

For the year 2011, I have better plan..I wanna resume on Herbalife to maintain good nutrition (fact: I should be doing so for the past 3 years actually but I didn’t, ouch!). Good thing about Herbalife nutritional programme is that I can follow different regime for different purpose, namely to maintain good health, lose weight and even gain weight;)

Among minerals and vitamins contained in Herbalife, i'm particularly interested in Folate (57.75microgram/serving) and Calcium (96.25mg/serving).

Medical notes:

1.The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) reports that women who take the recommended daily dose of folate/folic acid starting at least one month before they conceive and during the first trimester of pregnancy reduce their baby's risk of neural tube defects by 50 to 70 percent.

2. Young women (adolescents and young adults) need to make sure they get enough calcium, as they can achieve their peak bone mass just after this age. Adequate amounts of calcium will help her bones reach optimum bone density. This can help protect her from osteoporosis later in life. Mature women need calcium to prevent break down of bone. There is also a growing body of research that suggests that calcium may prevent PMS.

While i am not yet pregnant, it is common sense that i should start on folate early because by the time i go for dating scan, i may be on later stage of first trimester.. It's also a good news as Herbalife is also safe for mother in confinement/breastfeeding (ok, i'm being far-fetched here.LOL)

Back to school..

My sick leave is gonna end today..the feeling is similar to when I was going back to school after the end of the year’s break... feeling anxious of what’s going to be like when almost everyone knew about my condition, the price to pay for being in district hospital (crap, I even had one pharmacist in another hospital who was aware about the news!) maybe a bit excited of going back to work and getting my brain working after leading an idle (almost sedentary) lifestyle for a few weeks…dreading the thought of doing oncall, but hey, that’s an extra cash for my shopping!

You know the feeling when you had too long holiday and you started to feel guilty for not doing anything beneficial during that period? As a self-defense, I think I’m doing pretty alright..perhaps only spent the first two weeks of fully recovering and after that, a few fruitful things I’ve done and learnt.

‘Tanyalah Ustaz’- 7-8am everyday on channel 119 is now one of my favourite channel. Back to when I was still working, that hour doesn’t allow me to join my parents having breakfast while watching the segment because I would either be putting quick make up then rushing to the car…so when I was at home, I tried not to miss it. The topics are all very relevant, presenter who are informative but able to keep the humour and just the right way to start the day. So I promised myself that after this, I’ll wake up early so that by 7am, I will be ready and can spent almost half an hour on this segment before going for work.

EAT,PRAY,LOVE- I made sure I finished the book before watching the movie and glad I did.I know i'm soo behind but can't blame me for the kind of job i take up (lame excuse, d'uhh!) . it was worthwhile. For some reason, i could easily relate her quest to what i went through recently and by the time i finished the last page, i felt some sort of relieved and of the things she learnt in italy is to find a her word and mine would be 'BELIEVE'

I spent almost a month up north being a housewife..and that's when i stopped wishing to be one. LOL! i's not that easy being a domestic goddess apparently...i counts on my blessing for having a life partner who's not only good in cooking (and rescuing my disastrous attempt in kitchen) but also neat and particular in cleanliness..makes life so much easier,hehe..still have lotsa empty pages in my recipe book though;)

I ventured into another business, purely inspired by my mum....for now, there're kaftan (fondly known as baju kelawar), tudung bawal, telekung vietnam and batik all started when i need a distraction from my illness and i wanna do something i enjoy as side-track from medicine..another way to pursue in sunnah Rasulullah..

I'm a great fan of wishlist...most of my wedding wishlist came true so that explains...the latest is buying the complete set of shopaholic series..when in need of inspiration, i came up with wishlist for this's really therapeutic when i put happy thought into doesnt matter whether it materialises or not, but i can feel my spirit lifts up and the world becomes more colourful...

Final words, i actually had to re-type half of this entry because of some technical error so i'm late for bed...

Wake me up at 6.15am!
