Hey guys! It’s been five weeks since I started my Herbalife nutrition programme, and the results have been great! I lost 4.9kgs (10.8lbs!), and most importantly, I feel less lethargic and more energetic. I still get cravings for unhealthy food, but for the most part I’ve stuck to the programme as best as I can. It’s really satisfying to see the numbers and inches drop – it’s almost like you’re doing something to get your life back.

Here’s a before and after pic for comparison:

Taken on 21 Aug. Me on the far right with my mum and my coach Annie. My initial weight was 76.3kg, with a whopping 40.1 percent body fat. It was probably the unhealthiest moment of my life, and I knew I had to do something about it. As fate would have it, I stumbled across this club while at a totally unrelated assignment. Now I don’t wanna sound preachy, but I’m sharing because it has yielded results for me – I’m not sure about everyone else.

Starting weight on Aug 21: 76.3 kg – 40.1% body fat.

Weigh in on Aug 26: 75.1 kg – 39.9% body fat (-1.2kg)

Weigh in on Sept 1: 74.8 kg – 39.6% body fat (-0.3kg)

Weigh in on Sept 8: 73.5 kg – 38.9% body fat (-1.3kg)

Weigh in on Sept 22: 72.6 kg – 38.5% body fat (-0.9kg)

Weigh in on Sept 30: 71.4kg – 38.2% body fat (-1.2kg)

Total weight loss: 4.9 kg (-1.9% body fat). 

 

I guess the most noticeable part of my weight loss is the inches I have thrown from my waist. From an initial of 35.5 inches (yeah, that was how fat I was), I am now down to 32 – a loss of 3.5 inches. My visceral fat count went down from 8 to 7 (although still at unhealthy levels… I still have a lot to work on) and my inner body age from 49 to 47. That’s too whole years! Much work to be done until I can get my inner age back to my actual age .___.

I’m relieved that the meal replacements have been good for me, and that my gastric has somewhat lessened. I feel fuller now after having my replacement shakes for breakfast and dinner. My coach did warn me that at a certain point, my weight might plateau, so I’ll just have to put in more effort. I haven’t really been exercising as much as I should.😛

During my workout session today, I met another guy who was using Herbalife for approx the same period as me, but he only lost 1.5 kg because he said he wasn’t following the plan exactly. I guess it varies from person to person, depending on your age + metabolism, ur food intake and also how well u stick to the plan. It does take a certain amount of willpower, and I’m thankful for all the encouragement from the friends and family around me, especially my mum and my coaches.:)

 

Stay tuned for my next weigh in! My current target is to drop below 70 within the next two weeks.
