The one advantage of falling sick and being crazy busy is that you lose weight, naturally, without exercise. And that’s just what happened to me.
It all started several months ago when our part-time maid of 6 years went back to Indonesia for 6 weeks to get married. Without her coming to help us out 5 times a week, life was tough and crazy. At that time too, I had a lot of online assignments to write and submit with tight deadlines, right until now. I was constantly rushing from one task to another, without having proper sit-down meals. I lost some weight from the thick of things.
Come December 2018 during the long school holidays, I thought that I would gain back the weight I lost as I did not exercise a single day but nope. I was down with a bad throat and cough for almost a month, lost my appetite, did not get a wink of sleep for days from the hacking and whooping and not being to eat what I wanted to eat. I lost more weight from this sickness.
As a result, I lost close to 2kg within 3 months. 2kg for someone who has been at 46kg for the last 10 years is a lot of weight lost.
From 46 kg+ to 44.4 kg :
And then a few days later, when I saw 44.3 kg, I was thrilled to death! 😬
I was even more thrilled to find out that I could slip into an XXS spaghetti strap top from Cotton On and the top is even loose on me, woohoo!
Love this striking pink floral top which I got it at only RM30 from the Cotton On sale during the December school holidays. What a steal!
Because of a smaller waist (both from the current weight loss and a big fibroid removed 1.5 years ago), I had to bring a pile of skirts to my tailor to have them tightened at the waist as I could totally not wear these skirts anymore. The skirts were dropping down my waist and even my smallest belt could not hold them up.
Who wants to lose weight without having to exercise? Go indulge yourself in more house work, get yourself crazy busy with work but don’t fall sick la. It sucks to fall sick. My two older girls kept commenting that I am grossly underweight now coz I am lighter than them now 🤫 🤭
