【#Vivien Yeo's Beauty & Lifestyle】 不用花大錢!6分鐘改善「虎背熊腰」-我親身分享產後瘦身超有效八大招!


100 days after giving birth, I stood in front of the mirror and looked at myself and felt like I had gained some weight compared to my first pregnancy. At that moment, I felt like crying and was afraid that I wouldn't be able to lose weight. So, as a celebrity and a mother of two, I am sharing my weight loss experience without spending lots of money!

After giving birth to my second child, I had to take care of my older daughter at the same time. Although I had help from family members, I constantly reminded myself not to neglect my older daughter just because I had a new baby and tried to balance my time taking care of both. With twice the amount of time spent on family responsibilities and my own work to handle, I had no time to exercise or pursue weight loss. Moreover, both times I gave birth happened to be during the peak of the pandemic, so I didn't do the Postpartum belly binding or any weight loss treatments. Of course, I don't recommend that everyone try to lose weight after giving birth immediately, as it is not good for your health. I have also heard the saying that breastfeeding can help with weight loss, but based on my experience of having two children, I found that it didn't work for me and instead made me want to eat more food, so I looked for other methods.


Timing is key for postpartum weight loss. I recommend everyone to take care of their body during the first 1-2 months after childbirth, and the easiest way is to sleep and eat well. You may question whether adequate sleep can help with weight loss. As a mother who takes care of two children, I rarely have the chance to sleep through the night! (I haven't had a full night's sleep in three years, and I get up at least 2-3 times every night!) However, the fact is that when the body is well-conditioned, metabolism and physical strength will improve, and the effects of weight loss will be more significant afterwards. In addition to conditioning the body, a change in mindset is also necessary. By the following several points I have summarized, you can lose weight easily without spending lots of money and return to your pre-pregnancy weight.


1)Set a goal for yourself

Having a weight loss plan is essential to achieving your ideal weight. For example: use 6 months to 1 year to get back to your previous weight, or write your daily diet/exercise goals as a To-do List. Put this goal in a place where you can always see it, set it on your phone wallpaper or stick it in front of your door, and remind yourself every day to complete the goal within the target time. Don't set too harsh goals for yourself, and it took me 8 months to go from 70kg back to 52kg. Do not rush your body.


2)At home, you must have a scale

If you want to achieve your goal, checking your weight is the most direct method, so it is essential to have a scale at home. There are many smart scales on the market that can connect to mobile applications and provide data on body fat, allowing us to adjust our weight loss plan accordingly and achieve better results efficiently.


3)Prepare a pair of jeans worn before pregnancy

The goal of weight loss is to fit into all kinds of beautiful clothes, so it is important to have an actual goal: fitting into the jeans worn before pregnancy! Hang them in a visible place to encourage yourself to succeed in weight loss and fit into the jeans again. Try them on when you have free time and work a little harder until you can fit into them. Use this pair of jeans as a tool to encourage yourself, but don't be discouraged if you haven't reached your goal yet.


4)Maintain a positive mindset

Facing the temptation of many delicious foods while trying to lose weight can be one of the most difficult challenges. It's common to see people around us eating while we must restrict ourselves. This may lead to negative emotions. However, maintaining a positive mindset during weight loss is crucial. Excessive stress can cause cortisol levels to rise, which leads to fat storage and muscle breakdown. Therefore, it is important to stay optimistic during the weight loss journey for the best results.


5)Giving up snacks and late-night eating

Snacks and late-night eating are big enemies to weight loss and have many negative effects on the body, such as difficulty digesting cholesterol buildup, and increased risk of insomnia. These are all harmful to weight loss and may even contribute to the development of diseases. Giving up the bad habits of snacking and late-night eating can give us positive effects on the body and weight loss.


6)Do some simple exercises

Pregnant women or postpartum women may tend to develop hunchback or excess fat in the back, so it's important to first tone the back and arm muscles, which can visually make you look slimmer. With a few clothing adjustments, you can achieve a beautiful effect. To achieve a desirable figure in tight-fitting clothes, you can try some simple exercises to slim your arms and back. Here are some exercises that I have been doing and I would like to share them with you! Do 3 sets of these exercises every day and you will see a difference in about 2 weeks!

A Arm Circles

1. Start in a standing position, with your chest lifted and core engaged. Use your shoulder joint as a pivot point and lift your arms to shoulder height.
2. Rotate your arms in a circular motion, first forward for 15 seconds, then backwards for 15 seconds, completing one set in 30 seconds. Repeat for 3 sets.

B Clap Forward and Backward

1. Stand up and tighten your core.
2. Move your arms forward and backwards horizontally and clap the palms and backs of your hands alternately. Repeat for 30 seconds as one set.

C Arm stretch backwards

1. Start in a standing position, with your chest lifted and your core engaged.
2. Stretch your arms backwards at a 45-degree angle and swing them to the sides, repeating for 15 seconds. Then switch to swinging forward and backwards, repeating for 15 seconds. 30 seconds is one set.

D 90-degree lateral extension

1. Start in a standing position, with your chest lifted and your core engaged.
2. With your upper arm close to your body and your elbow as a pivot point, extend your lower arm to the side. Hold this position for 30 seconds.
3. From the starting position in step (2), extend your whole arm to the side and then bring your elbow back in towards your body. Hold this position for another 30 seconds.


7)Don't forget to dress up and take selfies

This may sound absurd, as there never seems to be enough time for sleep, let alone getting dressed up. But please believe me, because when you're not dressing up, it's like giving up on yourself. By dressing up, I don't mean wearing heavy makeup or outrageous clothes, but taking a little time to tidy up your hair, applying simple makeup to improve your complexion, and choosing clothes that you like and that suit your current body shape. When you see yourself looking beautiful in the mirror, you will be motivated to become even more beautiful. In addition, take more selfies with your original camera so that you can record how your body and appearance change over time. See yourself from the perspective of others and ask yourself if that image is the one you want to present to the world.


8)Auxiliary products, one cup of slimming drink after meals/big meals

Of course, I support VY Beauty Store's slimming drink, which helped me successfully lose weight quickly after childbirth and restore my ideal body shape by absorbing excess fat. Please note that if you are a mother who is breastfeeding after delivery, it is not recommended to take it, or it is better to ask the doctor's opinion before drinking. After I had adjusted my body for six months, I could drink the slimming product I represented and combined with the points mentioned above, I successfully returned to my previous weight in 8 months!
