Weight loss journeys of 5 Asian women to inspire you in 2017

3. Aquilah

I stumbled upon Aquilah’s website, Pretty Awesome Fitness, about a year ago and was struck by how she went from fat girl to fitness instructor. It’s pretty inspiring to see someone go from losing weight, to helping others lose weight. Aquilah struggled with dieting, before realising that there was no easy way to health and wellness. She lost 20kgs in 8 months, and started her website to help others lose weight as well!

4. Jessica Loh

Most people know her as a blogger and cafe owner of Shiberty Bakes. Jessica went from 80kg to just below 60kg and it definitely changed her life. I was really inspired by how she focused on eating better instead of just eating less, and kept her disciplined lifestyle up to shed the pounds. She’s definitely happier! Read her story here.

5. Kylie Yuen

When Kylie weighed herself and realised she has hit 99.7kg on the scale, she know she has to do something about her weight. With sheer determination, she cut “bad food” out of her life and started exercising. While she started seeing quick results, the drastic weight loss caused her to lose a lot of hair. Worried about the hair loss condition, she adjusted her weight loss plan and eventually saw an improvement in her thinning hair problem. 45kg lighter and not plagued by hair loss anymore, Kylie¬†regains her confidence and started using makeup, ditched her spectacles for contact lenses and finally “feels beautiful”.

Today's Beauty Tip

To pick the right foundation colour for yourself, try it along your jawline, instead of at the back of your hand. The right foundation should blend seamlessly into your skin tone.
