160 POUNDS!!! Gone were the days when i strutted around with the confidence of a peacock showcasing my well-toned and endowed athletic body. Instead, since walking down that aisle and giving birth to my beautiful girl, I had unknowingly fallen into the pitfall of a typical housewife. My exercise and training hours now have been exchange with attending to household chores and baby diapers. My diet suffers due to poor eating habits. It was simply a bomb when I weighed myself and discovered that I have put on a whopping 50 SICKENING POUNDS in just these couple of years after getting married.
I was standing in front of the mirror with Michael Jackson’s hit song, ‘That man in the mirror’ playing at the background. It just sat in me thinking who is this woman standing in front of me. My inner soul screaming out loud to disbelief that the woman is me. If I am thinking like this, then how about my poor husband who married that once gorgeous and sexy woman. I just feel shattered and broken. And true to the lyrics, the change has to start with me if I want to make this world a better place for my family.
That was the turning point which made me spend countless hours and money for the best diet pills, fad diet, wraps and almost every single weight-loss products available. For some reasons, all of them either work for a while or don’t work at all. And for those that made me lose a couple of pounds initially, would eventually cause me to put on double the weight loss when I stop consuming them. I was at desperate breaking point and the strained must have been too much for my husband too. His kind words never eluded me. ‘Honey, i love you the way you are. You don’t have to change anything’. I felt bashed and ashamed of myself. And in the summer, I could not bear to join my family at the beach. The once overused bikini now sat cold in the closet.
It wasn’t until early January 2014 that a rude comment from my own relative woke me up for good. It hurt so badly that my own relative could be so mean, but it made me say to myself “If I am so miserable … then WHY am I not getting in shape?”.
It was time for a shift in my thinking paradigm and I snapped out of my slumberness. Pity party time is over. It’s now or never. My wonderful husband deserve the woman that stood with him on the aisle. My beautiful daughter deserve a healthy looking and beautiful mum. And most importantly, I deserve to be the best I can.
How I Lost 50 Pounds and Get Back My Bikini Body in Six Months
The day of this epiphany was January 8, 2014. That day I stood infront of my husband and gave him my mobile phone to capture the girl in my reality one last time. After years of ineffective dieting and wasting lots of money, I promised myself that I will not fail again.
On that same day, I search on google for methods to lose weight and get a bikini body. I search for answers to questions such as “how to get a bikini body”, “how to lose weight without a diet”, “bikini diet plan” and more.
I came across a few bikini body workout programs being marketed and I decided to buy them. However, the bikini body guide I bought was like the diet pills being marketed today. Full of promises that you will drop a large amount of weight with ‘glowing reviews’, which I came to realize were actually fake reviews or sponsored and biased reviews. They were not effective at all.
However, that setback didn’t stop me and I didn’t give up. I did more research and I joined the forum on MyFitnessPal. Through that forum, I learned how to diet effectively and safely without having to starve. I also learned how we can actually utilize food to increase our metabolism. The knowledge I got from that forum allowed me to design my own bikini body diet plan that works for me.
At the same time, the members of MyFitnessPal forum was also discussing about the Bikini Body Guide program by Kayla Itsines. After trying and wasting my money on a few bikini body workout program and bikini body guides that wasn’t effective, I was skeptical of the Bikini Body Guide program by Kayla Itsines. I was afraid that it’ll just be like the other workout programs that I had bad experience with. However, I decided to give it a try after reading good reviews of the Bikini Body Guide in the forum.
After one month of combining my own bikini body diet meal plan with the Bikini Body Guide program by Kayla Itsines, I remember how happy I was to know that I’ve lost almost 10 pounds in that one month. I was insanely addicted to the results I was getting. I continued to feel better and more confident of myself with every passing week
I experimented a lot with my own body’s formula and created many spreadsheets to keep record of everything. It doesn’t take long for the whole thing to become ingrained in me. The spreadsheets became my bible that I can’t do without. Without even realising it, my eating and training habits become a dominant aspect of my life.
I workout at least four times a week, and ate so much. (Yes, my diet is not really a diet! I eat at least four to six times a day.) My diet plan was constantly a topic of conversation among my friends and family. I was getting comments like, ‘How are you going to lose weight when you are eating so much’, ‘You should not eat six times a day’ and more.
Many people were being very judgemental and quick to demoralise me at the start of it. However it didn’t take long before others started noticing my fast results. From harsh negative comments, it became encouragement and compliments. And soon enough, relatives and friends are circling me for the secret of losing these damn FIFTY pounds and recovering back my bikini body.
Since that day in January 2014, I haven’t stop pursuing my goals both in fitness and life. After I achieved my transformation, there were periods of time when progress seems slow or even stagnant. But what changed in me was realizing that I could have, do or be anything as long as I was willing to do my part. I work towards a healthy body and a healthy mind. With a healthy and strong mind, your body can achieve anything your mind can conceive.
Confidence is a priceless commodity that I will never trade for. My reborn confidence stemmed from how my body has transform to where it is today. Thus, it would be a disgrace if I choose to hide the recipe behind this magical transformation. My bikini body diet meal plan is so simple yet so beneficial as it empowers women like me to feel good and in control of my life. Thus, it’s an inner calling that I have to share it with as many women as possible.

My Tips For You
- Make and keep promises to yourself! An excuse is nothing but a waste of your thinking space. Anybody who wants to lose weight and get a bikini body badly enough will stop at nothing to achieve it. Find whatever that keeps you going and makes you stronger.
- Remember that there are no shortcuts and no magic pills. So stop wasting your time and money on diet pills. Equip yourself with the right knowledge and trust me, losing weight and getting your ideal bikini body is easier than what you think.
- Focus on what you stand to gain (or lose!). As you take the necessary steps needed to lose weight, instead of focusing on what you might be missing out on, focus on what you stand to gain (or lose!). If you put your focus on what you’re giving up you’re thinking short term and looking for a way out.
- Complete daily diary sheets. Keeping a record of the foods you eat for each meal and the exercise you do each day helps you stay on track and reflect back to you where things are going right and what areas need improving. Studies show that people who write down their goals and keep food and exercise diaries are more successful at weight loss.
- Don’t let others dishearten you. Sometimes people who have given up on themselves will feel the need to bring you down with them. It’s unfortunate, and hopefully this won’t happen to you, but if it does you have options: you can listen to them, stew on it, let it eat you up and give up; or, you can stand tall, stay true to yourself and show them how wrong they are.
The time has come. Wave goodbye to your old body and start getting excited about your new one. Keep moving forward towards a new lifestyle, a new you and a new body – your ideal bikini body! Weight loss for a bikini body can be easy and lasting. And it all starts now!
