The C-lium Lose More, Live More Bloggers’ Edition challenge has ended. But my commitment to reach my goal to lose more and stay fit will stay on.

Being included as one of the C-lium ambassadors is perhaps one of the most exciting and unforgettable experiences I had so far.

C-lium fibre has been my partner throughout the four-week challenge and I am still using the food supplement to look and feel young.

Before the C-lium Journey  (May 2012) – After the challenge (Sept. 13, 2012)

Happily, I lost 7 pounds off the pre-challenge weight and I continue to lose more as of this writing.

I will continue to work harder to be able to reach my desired weight following the things I have learned throughout the challenge – proper nutrition and exercise.

You can also adapt different exercises that suit your stamina. The one that works for me is the 4-minute exercise, the work out of the day (WOD) I learned from Crossfit Manila, and 30 minutes to an hour of Zumba.

The challenge now lies in maintaining the healthy lifestyle.

Exercise and day-to-day activities at home plus taking C-lium Fibre has helped me reduce my food cravings as it makes me feel full when meal time comes. I’m taking two sachets, one before breakfast and another in the evening.

I hope my four-week journey to lose weight has inspired you in some ways.

Our journey to C-lium Lose More, Live More Bloggers’ Edition will not be possible without the help from the men and women of C-Lium Fibre, Medicard, Crossfit Manila.

This is not the end but the beginning of a journey towards better health. Will keep you posted as I make an update of my weight loss progress hereon.

From large to small size

If you ask me if I have known one person who was successful in losing weight, that would be my sister. She can be considered one of the weight loss success stories as far as her standards of being slim is concerned. But I think she overdid her diet. She looks so thin after she loses so much weight. She used to wear a large size school uniform when she was a college freshman, but downsize to small after a few months of dieting. I barely saw her eat at home. Our mother was really frustrated about her method of losing weight. But my sister won’t admit it even to me. Later, I discovered that she took a slimming pill which made her poop after every meal. And there’s this diet pill that made her feel full so she doesn’t feel the urge to eat.
