Here's a candid photo of mine taken during Chinese New Year in 2019.
My defining moment is in this photo! It made me realize how much I have grown "horizontally" after having my 4th child. I didn't feel good about it...really, I felt uncomfortable in size and in health.
Since then, I scrutinized my food intake and exercise regime seriously. Trust me, it's 100% effort.
It is easy to give up when you put so much effort in losing the extra weight, and results are not encouraging. Hang in there. Favorable results is just at the corner. I didn't gain the extra weight over 2 months, but built up over few years .
Keep hooping, keep eating healthy....you are on the right track. Even though it's slow, but it's guaranteed happy results. Like the saying goes "slowly but surely".
Here's me today at 48kg.
I will share more with you how hula hooping helps me in my slimming journey in my blog. Stay tuned.

This is my personal weighted hoop exercise for a month. I am happy to drop a few kilograms. It's not rocket science. Mainly about having the right mindset, proper diet and exercise!
My weight has been climbing up. Trust me, I find it really tough to lose weight as I age. If we can relate, let me encourage you that today will be your first day to lose a few grams (slowly but surely). It starts from your heart and mind. Once you are determined to lose to your desired weight, go for it!
Don't be discouraged if you don't see any results for first 2 weeks. That doesn't mean your body is not changing internally. My weight remained the same for 2 - 3 weeks. But, I could feel my muscles are firmer and in no time, I notice my pants are easier to slide into my thighs > butt > tummy!
Let's journey with me to reach my ideal weight of 45kg. I hope you feel encouraged with my simple video below. Needless to say, I am a work in progress. Another 5kg to lose!
Confession: Since I lost 4kg in a month, I was quite relaxed with my diet. My weight remained at 49.5kg - 50.5kg now. Looks like I have to be more careful with my food intake and continue hooping (of course!). And surely hope to upload another video of me from 49.5kg to 47kg. And then another photo from 47kg to 45kg!

I had a wonderful morning run.
Before cooling down, I love hula hooping for about 5-10 minutes. It's really a great warm-down exercise. During run, my heart rate is about 140 beats per minute (plus minus). While hooping, my heart rate is about 110 beats per minute (plus minus). So, before going straight to stretching after my run, i will just hoop for short 5-10 minutes. Yay!

I have finally uploaded videos on how to do hula hoop. It was 12pm in the noon, under scorching hot sun! That's the best wefie during this video and photoshoot.
I have many customers telling me how worried they are for not being able to hoop.
First, you have to get yourself an adult fitness hoop. Those selling in toys shops remain as toys. Our hoops are purely for fitness purposes.
By far, hula hoop is the best exercise equipment for our waistline and abs. Get hold of one to diversify your workout.
Here are the videos on how to hoop.
1) How to hoop with both legs standing shoulder width apart.
2) How to hoop with one leg in front.
3) How to use Arm Hoops to firm up your upper back and shoulders.
4) See muscle movements with Arm Hoops!

Owning a hula hoop is one of the best thing you can have in your store room or under your bed. It doesn't take much space. Whenever you feel like it, whenever your time permits, bring the hoop out and have a happy jolly twirling time.
Many swear by just hooping 5 minutes a day, you will see a trimmer waistline and flatter tummy. How ideal is that?

Do I still have time to lose another inch on my waistline for coming Chinese New Year? We have another 2.5 weeks to go and I am pressured to trim my waistline further to fit nicely in my new cheongsam. Well, I guess I have to keep hooping!
Here's a picture of my 4th child. My previous blog post was 2.5 years ago. My pregnancy journey with baby Kristen was a rough one. Having said that, being the mummy to my 4 beautiful kids is one of my greatest joy.
We have new value packs to help expedite tummy trimming. Check out our Tummy-Trim Packs that comes with with Slimming Waistband at 50% OFF! This is no ordinary waistband, it comes with special natural minerals to help increase blood circulation and helps in fats burning.
We will be out of town for Chinese New Year for 5 days (26-31 January). Hence, there won't be any delivery services until we return to Singapore.
I wish you Happy Chinese New Year!

Ever wonder why you don’t see any more improvement on your waistline? You have been working out regularly with your hula hoop, and begin to feel discouraged and think that hula hooping is not for you anymore. Your sign of boredom with hula hooping is a POSITIVE indication that your waistline is ready for greater challenge. Spice up your hula hoop routine by increasing the hoop’s weight or get another new hula hoop texture for a new hooping experience.
Increasing hoop’s weight will tone and build up your core muscles. Increasing muscle mass means burning more fats around your waistline. Sounds great, isn’t it?
Working out with various hula hoop models (mixture of magnetic hoop and foam hoop) will definitely spice up your hula hooping regime. Magnetic hoops have magnetic bumps that increase massaging effects around your waistline. These magnetic bumps increase blood circulation directly on your waistline. Foam hoops has rounder and smaller tube, which helps in defining your waistline. Hoop 5-10 minutes on each hula hoop model, you can easily clock in 15-20 minutes of a great hula hoop workout! Remember to always hoop clock-wise and anti-clockwise. This helps even out muscle tone from both sides of your waist.
I would like to share with you about an inspiring lady I met through HulaHoopSingapore.com. Her name is Doris and she's definitely a hula hoop enthusiast. She has been working out with hula hoop for many years. Check out her body. Doris is in her 60’s and still looking GREAT! Her tummy is flat despite having 3 kids. I am very encouraged and inspired with her hula hooping regime. She travels with her hoops too.
And yes, that’s me with 24 weeks pregnant. Wish I could hula hoop…. I guess not another few months after baby arrives.
