An Open Letter To Stay At Home Mums

Table of contents

Dear SAHM,

You start your day at 5 am daily to prepare breakfast for the kids and get them ready for school. After housework and the laundry, it is time to prepare for lunch before the school ends. Time flies by so fast, and it is time to pick the kids up and attend to them until their bedtime. All the time for everyone but not a minute to spare for yourself.

When you finally have some time one day, you take a hard look in the mirror and wonder “Where did all those years go?." Weight gained and that once upon a time hourglass is now bulging with love handles.

You begin to wonder why so, as you only cook the healthiest meal for yourself and the family and doing housework counts as a form of exercise, right?

Granted that doing housework can burn calories such as:

128 calories per hour while ironing or washing dishes

150 calories per hour while cooking or putting away groceries

165 calories per hour doing general housework

180 calories per hour loading or unloading a car

But stubborn fat pockets are obstinate for a reason. Most women carry weight and fat around the hips, butt and thighs. And to move the number down on the weighing scale, a healthy diet is just the tip of the iceberg.

DNA and genetics play a big role in weight loss, especially when you are above 30 years old. That is why some people visit a doctor to determine the best way to lose weight for their body type. Dr. Ivan Puah, Medical Director of Amaris B. Clinic, has seen patients from all walks of life, body types and shapes, with a variety of family history to help them achieve their goals through a customised weight loss programme. Each programme is tailored to each patient’s unique body measurement and composition.

To address the stubborn areas, Dr. Ivan Puah recommends one of the clinic’s signature treatments, VASER® Liposelection. This liposuction technology is vastly different from the previous generation. VASER Lipo is less invasive and much gentler to the body. It uses ultrasound high-frequency vibration to breakdown the fat, while gently sucking out the liquefied fat cells. Dr. Ivan Puah has more than a decade of experience so you can rest assured that his skills will leave you with a more contoured, smooth silhouette.

Aside from VASER Lipo, Amaris B. Clinic also provides a range of other weight loss and body contouring treatments. Whatever your body type and weight loss goals are, there is one that is suited to your needs.

Being a stay at home mum is a full-time job. Through your hard work and sacrifices, you turn a house into a home. For that and more, we take our hats off to you.

But before you take care of others, take good care of yourself first.
