Beauty Review_Postpartum Slimming With Marie France Bodyline - Part 1

Hi there to you! Some of you who have been following my blog knows that I'm a Mama to a 9 month old baby, that also means that I'm a new Mama who's 9 months postpartum. Many Mamas out there try all means & methods to slim down after giving birth to their precious little ones and of course there's no wrong to it b'cuz who doesn't want to regain their pre-pregnancy figure right? But of course slimming down the safe & healthy way is most important. Crash diets and yo-yo diets are a no-no for me, and especially those of you Mamas who are breastfeeding I'm sure you'd know dieting is a big N-O too.


This is me now, 9 months postpartum - looking fab & slim you may think. I take credits for this figure b'cuz people who know me know I work hard for it, i.e. I exercise regularly and never go on diets but I eat healthily. I've not gone on any diet in years b'cuz once you are conscious of the right choices to make during meal times, you'll never need to go back on any diet again. 


Having said, you must be wondering what this already-slim-Mama is doing at a slimming centre *gosh*?! Only Mamas would know that regardless of the size you may be able to regain after delivery, there ought to be a few "problem areas" we Mamas face postpartum, e.g. 1. Loose Skin, 2. Stretch Marks, 3. Cellulite, 4. Fatty Areas. Personally for me I feel my postpartum problems are loose skin, fatty spots, and cellulite. 


You may think that Marie France Bodyline only has plus-sized clients but you know what? They actually specialize in helping Moms lose their postnatal weight gain, which was exactly the reason i'm here for! B'cuz even though all these time I've been eating right & working out to regain my pre-pregnancy figure, I'm now mostly toned but definitely need help on certain flabby areas where fats have been retained after being pregnant


I'm sure with more effort and time spent on exercising, surely I would be able to "get rid" of the unwanted fats. But Mummies all know that time & effort is exactly the two things that we have limited of. Many Mummies admire my motivation to keep going even though I have to work, take care of baby, make time for family, and keep maintenance for beauty and exercise even though sleep is never enough. I've been exercising for sure but honestly not optimal since I'm usually hitting the gym early in the morning after taking "night shift" caring for my baby - how to hit it hard when lack of energy/sleep? Surely I'll have to take care of myself at the same time eh? That's where Marie France Bodyline comes to the rescue! Yipee!


A little introduction about Marie France Bodyline whom originally was established in Switzerland, now has a network that includes slimming centres in Singapore, Malaysia, Hong Kong, Indonesia, Thailand and Macau. As a leading network of slimming centres, Marie France Bodyline has more than 29 years of experience helping women achieve their ideal body shapes and truly understands a woman's body. Professionalism is taken on a higher level providing clients and customers treatments tailored to each individual's needs. Honestly I don't think I'll have to carry on with all the formal introduction since many of you would have already heard of their "big name". 


Scrolling through the last few pictures shows you the interiors of the outlet at Orchard International, also the place I'll be visiting for treatments in the next few months. Located on the eighth floor, the feeling of stepping just into the corridor leading to the centre feels oh-so-private. Place was really cosy and quiet which gave me a sense of privacy - just the way I like whenever I go for my beauty treatments. Staff were very friendly and of service oriented, thumbs-up for their service provided. 


Upon my arrival, I had to fill up a form on my personal information and waited for the in-house Nutritionist for consultation. She first took my weight and a brief analysis of my body fat percentage on this body fat analyser cum weighing machine while explaining to me on the process of her consultation.


Knowing your weight & body fat percentage will help the consultants further analyse your body and also to correctly advise customized treatment sessions to help meet your desired body shape.


This was the cosy corner where consultation with the Nutritionist took place; with all the place cards, pictures and forms, full information on stand-by for clients to be informed on. The Nutritionist would get to know each client using questionnaires to find out one's lifestyle & diet habits, as well as machines dedicated to analysing body content - this way, the Nutritionist can fully understand her client's bodily status and needs to come up with guides to help meet client's ideal body shape.


I was introduced to a second machine used to analyse body fat content in a more specific way. This machine was able to tell how much fat, water and muscle mass was in my body, and was even able to tell me the distribution of the contents - wow! Simply putting, this machine could tell how much fat was in the upper region of my body vs the lower region of my body, or even how much muscle mass I had more/less in the upper or lower part of my body - cool right? As a person who's into fitness & nutrition, this got me REALLY interested. I can finally find out if what I have been doing was really leading to my desired body goals. On top of that, I'd be able receive proper advice & care from the consultants here to help with my goals. Yays!

I really liked the three slimming philosophies that Marie France Bodyline believes in;
Technology - always introducing the most updated & advanced equipment for best results, even their slimming consultants are equipped with the most updated training courses.
Nutrition - a team of professional Nutritionists offer guides on optimum nutrition & advice on lifestyle habits suited to individual needs - helping clients to meet their desirable body goals.
Client Compliance - each and every client is advised the most suitable treatments, with the help of the slimming consultants & nutritionist to develop long-term programmes to meet their needs.


After the chitter-chatter & consultation with the Nutritionist, I was taken to my private changing room to prep up for the treatments. Ruby 5 was my room for the day, oh how I felt like a VIP. Hehe.


Here's a sneak peek into the little room which had a locker and lounger in it, as well as clean robes to change into. Change and rest was all I had to do while waiting for the therapist to come take me to the treatment room.


And of course the standard SOP - changing-room-selfie! Haha.. Promise I won't bombard you with too many of my selfie pics. Seriously just wanted to share with ya'all the entire experience with all my pictures. ; ) 


*Say Cheese* ... *Cheeseeeeeeeee* 


*knock-knock*, came the therapist and off we headed to the treatment room for my session.


This whole place was like a mini maze, with so many rooms & corridors... Almost got lost around here on my first visit. 


Look at the number of rooms, just along one corridor. Haha, I know I know, I keep emphasizing on how big this place is. Lol. But really, see for yourself. Even though there were many rooms, the place was quiet and really exclusive.


There were shower facilities in the bathroom provided for clients who wish to wash up after treatments. Just FYI.


Overall my thoughts on my first visit was simply great. I loved the environment which was quiet & private, the people who were friendly & service-oriented, which left me with the feeling of a VIP & even motivation to stick to my goals. Everything & everyone seemed really efficient around here. Totally looking forward to coming back more often.
