WAKE UP CALL - Battle of the Bulge

Last nite whimsy visited a dear friend Pharmacy in damai. (Min, si Janet) This is her second outlet (original one is in Donggongon Penampang - Donggongon Pharmacy). The outlet has a very classic ambience. I feel so health conscious being in a pharmacy....(LOL!!), don't know why!! The smell of cleanliness, medicine etc just makes u conscious whether one is healthy enough or not. Janet did a BMI, Fat components etc checking for whimsy, using some sort of machine. I wanted to put the pic of the machine here, but somehow I couldnt put more than these 2 pictures (why is that ya? all u techhies out there?) .

Lo and Behold!!!!!!!the result is OMG OMG OMG OMG OMG OMG OMG, Whimsy is in the brink of Obesity (with a capital O!), my fat contents againstoverall weight is - OMG OMG OMG OMG OMG OMG OMG OMG OMG 35% of my body is FAT!!!!! That is soooooooo not good!!!! OMG If I am an edible meat (steak), I would be the best steak cut since I had the right proportion of fats and meat kan!!! Janet says that is quite dangerous coz it means my important organ (heart, "angkayau' I dont know wht is that in english, etc) are envelope with fats, and reduce their efficiency.
But seriously, this is really a wake up call for me. I v been experiencing a plateau in my quest to reduce weight. I won't disclose my weight here (sufficient to say my weight is similar to Fabmom's hubby weight, kan Fab mom, or he is lighter now!) No wonder I v been feeling lousy nowadays, I get tired easily and I got migraine attack quite often, especially when I go outstation. The bad news is I go outstation quite often nowadays, and it scares me to be consuming the migraine medication very often.
Janet the pharmacist had put me on a medication to control my appetite and to try reduce 2 kg initially. Reductill (It is RM8 per tablet...) Have anyone ever tried thie? Do share your experience. I had taken one today, and I will be sharing with u'ol the experience k. Wish me luck in my quest to be healthy my dear blogettes.

Do visit janet's DAILY CARE PHARMACY (sebelah Rafflesia Chicken Hut) and show support to our local business. They provide many employment opportunities to the local. Do ask for discounts coz they will give discounts. ANd ask Janet to do checking on the BMI, fat things as well....

Less starch sbb starch is the most stubborn to digest n burn..like potatoes, bananas, rice etc...milo pun fattening oh...dinner must not be after 8pm coz then ur metabolism starts to snooze..lots of plain water coz it will wash away the toxins n a good way to slim down..demikianlah dietician Marie France membaritau kadi aku suatu ketika dolu..

Eh, u all, if u want to really lose weight, cek the Glycemic Index of the food. The lower the index is, the kurus is the food. But it only applies to carbs
