WASSUP GUYSSSS!!!! I’m back from my SUPER DOPE Sentosa birthday vacation! Can’t wait to tell you all about it. Let me just sort out the photos!
Well, turning 30 meant a lot for me. When I did my pre-dawn half marathon around Sentosa last Friday, it suddenly occurred to me that I used to suffer from so many ailments, none of which I would have EVER imagined I would be free from. However, now at 30, I can list at least 10 health problems that MIRACULOUSLY DISAPPEARED after I changed my lifestyle.
Before I show you the list, I thought you might like to see a small comparison photo of me when I turned 27, versus me now. Neat eh? ;P Growing older doesn’t seem so bad after all, if it means becoming better. For the record, at the point the photo on the left was taken (i.e. on my 27th birthday), I was a month or so into my lifestyle change and had already lost 4kg – so that WASN’T me at my biggest. Still, it serves as a nice reminder of how far I’ve progressed. :)
Life at 27 vs. Life at 30
So, here goes….
(1) “Chicken skin” (a.k.a. keratosis pilaris)
A.k.a. raging ANGRY RED BUMPS all over my arms and thighs, which became even ANGRIER and REDDER when it gets cold. If you’ve never heard of keratosis pilaris, consider yourself VERY lucky. It’s caused me much embarrassment, especially in my teenage years and throughout adulthood.
