BFF Challenge: The End

It’s a Saturnalia miracle! Having not lost a single pound the entire year, I caught up and lost almost 1kg in 3 weeks at the last minute! Thanks to GLOW and the Berry Fruity Fat-loss Challenge. A combination of the product as well as exercise (not so much the diet because I was too greedy over the feasting holidays), helped me through it all!

I enjoyed the workouts *gasp* led by trainer, Sederick, with my BFF GLOW buddies and kept up with all the prescribed sessions. I am actually quite amazed at how I hadn’t tried to excuse myself and skipped any of the sessions. I’m almost sure GLOW gave me the energy boost that I have sorely lacked. Despite the fact that I huffed and puffed while lagging behind these straight-sized bloggers, I never once felt like I was going to give up or embarrassed that I couldn’t keep up. It really helped that these blogger mates were all very encouraging! (Do read their blogs here –> Daphne / William / Ju-Ann)

I am impressed by GLOW as a product but as a natural skeptic, I’m going to skip taking the product for 1 month and continue applying what I’ve learnt from the BFF Challenge. Then if I don’t lose any weight by February, I will know for sure.

The best part is, they will be launching a new, improved formula of GLOW soon – this means that when I do go back on the product, I hope it’ll be doubly effective!! Dear new GLOW, help me lose 2 kgs in 3 weeks please!

BFF Challenge: End of Week 1

As I write this post, I’m on my way to yet another workout. It has been a week since we started the BFF (Berry Fruity Fat-loss) Challenge . I don’t know if it works just yet, but I am feeling good so far!

Coupled with the GLOW raspberry ketones pills, we have had the luxury of almost round-the-clock nutrition advice (via Whatsapp) and the guidance of a personal trainer, Sederick, every other day. I’ve locked down my dates early on and made it to all the scheduled workouts. Sometimes thwarted by the weather (but I get my ass there nonetheless).

We have a group chat on Whatsapp and if you know me, my default status there is “Don’t Whatsapp Me”. I can’t keep up and I don’t have that much time to chat when I’m at work or going about my business. It’s amazing how many hundreds of messages the group exchanges in a single day. Lots of encouraging ones, advice on what to eat etc. It is unfortunate I have little time and content to contribute. I do try my best to read what’s going on and there have been some very useful tips for eating and portion control.

I have taken our nutritionist Rachel’s advice and tried to eat well. As you can see from above, I eat a variety of foods and it’s not all bland! I try not to think of my favourite things – cupcakes, fried chicken etc. On top of that, I snack on fruit in the mornings. I think GLOW curbs your appetite but not your greed. So I have my work cut out for me. Hahaha!

Aside to the people who have been sending Christmas food hampers to the office… Damn you and your temptations! Stop it already… BOOO

Until next week… Toodles!
