Dear barre3... Thank You for the Weight Loss. :)

After I turned insert-my-age-here last April, I started a weight loss journey. And I decided to take a month-long unlimited barre3 membership for it. After that, I took a month-long hiatus before resuming with another month-long unlimited membership. Now that that month is almost at an end, I feel the need to say thank you to the exercise class that changed my life.

See, this is what I looked like during the end of March 2013.

Here's another one for emphasis (also March 2013):

Although I didn't have any massive qualms with my looks at the time, I was clearly overweight. Take note of the chubby cheeks, my suffocating arms, my humongous legs and my sad attempt at hiding my stomach.

Now, after a month of barre3, a month of laziness and almost another month of barre3, here is what I look like...

Believe it or not, I still weigh exactly the same.
Except: more muscle, less fat! :)

Aside from the more toned physique (the legs!!!), I am definitely much more confident now, as well. No more hiding of the arms, no more covering of the stomach, and no more tight-lipped smiles.

Also: no more cigarettes (except when it's a really, really, really, really extra stressful day), no more alcohol (except in tiramisu) and no more bad sleeping schedules.

Yes, barre3 has changed me completely - inside and out. Seriously. And I have never felt better in my entire life. :)

As for my diet, nothing has changed. I still eat whatever I want (and weekends are a total free-for-all!) and the best part is that I actually enjoy barre3. So... thank you! :)

And now for the outfit post. I wore this after one of my barre3 sessions last week. Fun fact: I pigged out at Krispy Kreme right after this quick shoot. ;p

black studded flats from S&H

Please take heed that I just worked out, so pardon the messy hair. Also, I was in a hurry, so thank goodness for my trust tank top from Freeway! :)

As for why I'm looking down... I actually had closeups of my shoes, but that was the exact moment where I noticed how dirty they were. Whoops!

No more preggy belly and a firmer butt! :D

If you live in the South and wanna try out barre3 for free, then let me know. They'll be hosting a free class for bloggers on Saturday, 8am, at Alabang Town Center. Just let me know if you wanna go, yeah? Hope to work out with you this weekend! :)

  5. Are you paying more than $5 / pack of cigs? I'm buying my cigarettes over at Duty Free Depot and this saves me over 50% from cigs.

  6. I was instructed to continue taking the steroids. Suddenly, I had this intense desire to eat nearly everything in sight. waist trainer for women

  7. Waist Trainers for Weight Loss is a way to control your natural waist size to maintain the trim. It has a long history, dating back to the 16th century, say researchers. Catherine DE 'Medici, the wife of Henry II, King of France from 1547 until her death in 1559, is believed to have begun compulsory waist training.
