'...nampak lain laa...'
i was given this remark more than once by friends and relatives.

anywayyyy, for the past month i put myself in maintenance plan (again) with Herbalife shakes; that is consuming it only once daily. Reasons being; i dont wanna miss out on Malaysian good food while enjoying my short break. Who would, huh? Sometimes, i even settled for teamix only for the whole day while i was travelling. I dont really put much worry about putting on weight because i know i have Herbalife...

so, yesterday i took a chance to measure myself again. I know i may not lose weight within this period considering how many impromptu eating out's i had and very-much-missed home-made cooking i feasted on. to my suprise (and BIG JOY), i am actually losing cm's around the target area instead. To date, i have lost

Waist= 6cm




that makes me 21cm smaller at the correct spot. lalalala~!

so, although i may only maintain my weight as heavily as 54kg, i do have waist of 24'.

Healthy-licious shakes!

2 scoops of Formula 1 Dutch Chocolate
1 scoop of Formula 3
1 banana (I like to use pisang berangan)

1 scoop of Formula 3

Personalised plan & BUDDY PROMOTION...

I'll just cut and paste my email to my wellness buddies regarding the personalised plan for Ramadhan

Assalamualaikum to all my wellness buddies,

based on feedback & personal experience, i've formulated personalised plan for consuming Herbalife during this Ramadhan season. Insya Allah if you follow the routine as close as possible, you will enjoy GREAT results during hari raya;)

Sahur (5-6am) : 500ml Shakes (3 scoop of Formula 1 & 2 scoop of Formula 3) -we're fasting for more than 8 hours thus our body need extra nutrition & hunger-control protein powder). You could also add another glass of teamix for extra energy!

Berbuka(7-8pm): 500ml teamix with normal meal- tips to avoid over-stuffing your stomach would be starting off the breaking fast with tamar, teamix and a few slices of fruits.

Night (10-11pm): Drink at least 1-1.5L plain warm water(air suam laaa) to replenish the water loss & prepare yourself for the next day. I would not advise you to add teamix at this hour because u may have difficulty to sleep afterwards due to the extra energy ;) You may drink another shakes ONLY IF you're feeling hungry(most people said they stay filled from berbuka) or planning to skip sahur the next day. Oh, remember the basic rule to lose weight/shape up? PLENTY OF WATER!

Simple, yet i believe very practical for the season.

Please keep me updated about your progress ( or lack of motivation, if any) because that's what i am for;)

Take care!!

I hope everyone reading would benefit from it.

On another note, I've decided to introduced BUDDY PROMOTION to my wellness buddies, limited until next wednesday before i fly back to melb. To those of you who would like to experience great life & health with HERBALIFE with a lower cost, kindly leave me your email address or contact number;)

Get your efforts NOTICED by your loved ones;)

eheh, Miss AA already lost total of 15cm in 2 weeks' time (she could not get accessed to the weighing scale though ;p)

yAtt: so total in 2 weeks ko dah lose about 15cm
yAtt: banyakkkk gak tuh
yAtt: serious
AA: tapi abang aku realize dia kata aku dah nampak kurus sket!! (ehem, that's her bf, not brother;p)
yAtt: wohoooooooooooooo!!!!!!!!!!
yAtt: bes bes
yAtt: *icon joget lambak -opsss, bulan pose =D*
AA: thats more than anything!!
AA: eheheheehe


total greatness!! i shall not say more than this;)

It takes YOU to appreciate HL

another favourite question thrown was about the possible side effects of HL. on personal note, i have not experienced any side effect for the past 5 months of using it. i could not think of any, really. on a global note, HL has been in the market for more than 20 YEARS (i know, it's only been recently introduced in m'sia thus the slight ignorance) with 50 MILLION CUSTOMERS and growing. so, that must means something right? it has its Medical and Scientific Advisory Board to make sure everything within the standard. i dont think we could expect more than these for assurance.

and what about the 'yo-yo' diet or i'm-gonna-skip-meals-to-lose-weight method? doesnt it have more obvious side effects from lack of nutrition to lacking energy or binge-ing? OR what about feasting on all the high cholesterol-MSG-sugar meals? surely, it has all the side effects known to everyone. u polluted your blood vesseld with fat plaque, increasing your chance for all sort of trouble with diabetes and many more. OBESITY? it's nothing new worldwide.

i wrote this 3 months ago, and my stand never changed. everytime ppl try to question about the side effects of HL, i have to stop myself from smirking. oh sorry, not that i find it ridiculous but rather sorry for the lack of understanding about CELLULAR NUTRITION. Insya Allah, those who consume HL will appreciate it without any doubt ;)

The tips & tricks...


like what i've been emailing my wellness buddies...

1. Believe in yourself
Nothing's gonna be more helpful in changing your life with HL than keeping a positive mind & attitude (i dont really fancy the phrase 'lose weight/inches' anymore cos i know HL does more than that) about yourself and the effort. If you do not keep a good faith in yourself, nobody will! So, instead of saying 'ermmm, what if it only works for others but not me?' CHANGE IT TO 'well, if it works for others why not me?' challenge yourself, prove it!

2. Counter-attacks the cravings or big appetite
Before you succumb to the tempation, drink at least 500ml of plain water(better still, with teamix). Heh, there's a high chance that you're actually thirsty and not hungry. oh oh, if you still fail to let go the temptation..remember, there's always another time to eat so do it moderately.hiks;) or maybe you could start changing to healthy snacking-fresh fruits, some nuts or muesli bar.

3.Plenty of water
yup, as much as 2L per day is our daily requirement. It could be from drinks, soup, fruits but the best one is still plain water. To flush out the toxins, better cell functions and good hydration.

4.Get yourself a mentor
If makes a difference, i believe so. Especially to those who are likely to bounce back to the old habit. That's why HL is not available in the shop because without someone to monitor your progress and lift up your motivation, the products may stay forever in the kitchen cabinet ;)

5.Do it right
I believe the reason people fail to progress is because they dont follow the routine correctly. If you drink shakes twice +1 normal meal daily to lose weight; shakes once daily +2 normal meals for weight maintenance/wellness; shakes twice daily after meal to gain weight; great results are yours!

6.Test your creativity
Dont get stuck with only one taste or flavour. Variety of taste will keep boredom away.. That's why i always suggest vanilla shakes for a beginner becos it can be turned into different yummylicious it! my personal preference would be chocs+oats shakes for breakfast fruity-vanilla shakes for dinner. special message to those in Msia, add a few cubes of ices for a significantly better-tasting shakes !!

7.Know the products well..
Its CELLULAR NUTRITION is something everyone should understand and to the HL consumers, to be PROUD OF!

okay, salam Ramadhan to all. Have a blessful one, insya Allah;)

What caught my eyes?!

tadaaaaa, something David Beckham and his LA Galaxy teammates' been wearing and CONSUMING for their soccer career!! must be something really good, ey?;)

Great improvement for skin, inches & weight

Hehe, another sms that made my heart swelled with joy & satisfaction. Updated progress from my cousin after less than a month of consuming HL

'Sangatla bagusnye. Skin, weight and inches mmg dah byk improvement. Tp weight yang latest tak timbang lagi. Cuma agak dr baju and seluar yg dah boleh dipakai. If not pokai nak beli baru, hehe.'

Alhamdulillah, being the wellness buddy has been a GREAT pleasure for me !!

As for myself, mistakenly thought as 21 years-old during my fren's wedding reception and high school girl by a makcik is flattering enough *big grin* Not to mention the remarks given by my SIL's mother. aawwww;)

Lovely mama & beautiful baby..

My cousin recently delivered her first baby boy and decided to start on HL during her confinement. So, this was what she emailed me..

'...guest what? even tak consistent ambik HL pon (kadang ambik 1 shake per day kadang ambik 2 shakes per day ;p), tapi, after 3 weeks, berat dah turun 3 kg. Then, inches pon kurang 10cm.. and then, my skin pon bersih dan cantik tak kusam dan kering mcm dulu even E(the baby) pon dah kurang ruam kat badan dia. Berkat susu ibu...heheheh..'

congrats on the good news!! could not be happier to share this happiness with u..Baby E will thank you for this;)
