Slowly but surely

So.......for the past one month, i have been wearing this corset. Actually buying this was my only hope to lose weight. My last hope. I don't have time to go to the gym. I did join the gym before a few years ago, but unfortunately, i was too lazy to go to the gym everyday. More so, even now, when i go home late from work everyday, and my weekend is just too precious (gotta spend time wif Peanut) to spend it at the gym hahah and also, i want to give my MIL a break lah. I can't expect her to take care of Peanut in the weekends too rite, while i slog it out at the gym...

Been trying to go on diet too..For the longest time, since Peanut was born, i have been trying so hard to lose weight. I eat one scoop of rice for lunch everyday with vegetables and stuff, and same for dinner too. Occasionally, during the weekends i'll eat more than that of course... But still, my weight just never budged..despite all the controlled eating. It just stayed stagnant. I imagined my "fats" have turned into solid lard in my hahahhah..

So i bought this Premium Beautiful corset finally. Desperate de. Wanna lose some weight by September. For reasons only known to a few people *wink wink*. So i started wearing on July 12.

After a month of wearing my Premium Beautiful corset, I managed to lose from 59.2kg to 56.7! a 2.5 kg weight happy. I feel even more motivated now. I wear this corset every night without fail. At first, it was uncomfy. Cos i'm not used to something gripping my body..I would say the first day is the hardest. But by the 3rd day, my body got used to it. I can walk, bend down, everything as per normal. And it's not the wear until u wanna suffocate kind. No's the kind that just flatten your tummy and grip at all the places that it's suppose to grip. For example..lift up your buttocks and boobs (wah, like Madonna's spiky bra type of height just that it's soft), and push all your fats into the right places.

Gradually i could see the result. My tummy became flatter, my pants and jeans become looser, i can feel my waist de..doesn't feel so thick anymore. Frankly, and to be honest, i really love it! In fact, i can't go to sleep without it already, feel as if something's missing if i'm not wearing it. It's very comfy. I feel it's a very very worth it purchase. I'm not saying it just because i'm selling it. But because i can really see and feel the result. Best part is, it has a lifetime warranty. So if the stitches unravel, or it's torn, no worries, can send back to the stockist and they'll fix for you! For free. That's one of the thing that sold me lah. That and the fact that I can use this forever and ever. Unlike, for example, if you were to go to one of the slimming centre. This corset is also good for health too, it helps to reduce your stretchmarks, reduce bloatedness as it can really expel all the wind in your body, heals your backache and much more. The first week i wore it, i can feel I let out *ahem* gas a lot. Sorry, gotta say it. Really buang angin lor. I feel not so bloated anymore.

Now let's hope i can reach my target weight soon!

Novena of Confidence

I discovered this prayer a long time ago, in a leaflet in an old church, placed for people who come in at all odd hours to pray. In moments of worries (and you know i worry a lot lol) desperation and sometimes sadness,I have used this prayer countless of times. All good things must be shared, so here, I'm sharing this wonderful prayer with you, the Novena of Confidence.

O Lord Jesus Christ,
To your most Sacred Heart,
I confide this/these intention(s):

(State you intention(s) here...)

Only look upon me,
And then do
What your Sacred Heart inspires.

Let your Sacred Heart decide
I count on it
I trust in it
I throw myself on Your mercy,
Lord Jesus!
You will not fail me.

Sacred Heart of Jesus,
I trust in You.
Sacred Heart of Jesus,
I believe in Your love for me.
Sacred Heart of Jesus,
Your Kingdom come.
O Sacred Heart of Jesus,
I have asked you for many favors,
But I earnestly implore this one.
Take it.

Place it in Your open, broken Heart;
And, when the Eternal Father looks upon It,
Covered with Your Precious Blood,
He will not refuse it.

It will be no longer my prayer,
But Yours, O Jesus.
O Sacred Heart of Jesus,
I place all my trust in You.

Let me not be disappointed.

16 months

Peanut is almost 17 months..and i have yet to update her progress for 16 months yet..My bad.

Anyway, she has finally managed to walk without our help! Though she looks like a drunk when she walks..she wobbles left and the "drunken kungfu" style lol.

Her vocabulary is expanding.. she can say quite a few words now. Among those that I can remember are

* laptop
* bicycle
* uncle / auntie
* camera
* flower
* scared
* don't want
* Monday to Sunday..though not necessary in that order
* she knows how to count 1 to 10, in english and malay.

At least we can understand her better now, and better manage her needs. she has a voracious appetite, and she eats almost anything so far..definitely her mother's daughter haha

Here's a short video of her. Until i learn how to rotate the video, you'll have to bend your head to the left..

Here, she counts 3 to 10 in malay..

She spells her name

Once in a while, on a long drive home from work, a memory will spark in me...

I remembered her from work. She was around 19, a sweet young thing, and she always come around with her friend. Once in a while we will have a quick chat. I don't know her well, but she always looked happy..

Then one day out of the blue, came the news. She was hit by a van while crossing the road to get to the other side. Her dad was waiting on the other side of the road, to pick her up from work. She was standing in between two lanes on a highway, unsure on whether to cross the rest of the road when suddenly a van came zooming by. I guess the van driver did not see her. The vehicle banged into her, and the impact caused her to fly up in the air before landing on the road. Her dad, who saw the whole thing, was screaming when he came to her. She died.

The news was made even sadder, when i heard almost a year before, her brother, too, died in a car accident.

How cruel life is sometimes, and it's times like this, when I remember and remind myself not to sweat the small stuff, and to just live life to the fullest.

"There are only two ways to live your life. One is as though nothing is a miracle. The other is as though everything is a miracle" - Albert Einstein
