23 August 2013 / 3 years 2 months ago

New Paper New Face contestant Alina Ang was a fat kid.

She said: “I weighed 80kg when I was 17. I was in my first year at the polytechnic.

“In 2010, I told myself I had to do something.

So, I started exercising – jog every morning, swim at least three times a week and carried light weights before I slept.

“I avoided chocolates and deep-fried food and within three months, my weight dropped to 54kg.”

Standing at 1.71m, she now weighs 52kg. “I still work out frequently and keep a balanced diet,” she said.

The weight loss did wonders for her confidence. She said: “My confidence level was very low when I was fat.

“I did not interact with many people because of how I looked. I was a follower among my friends.

“I always wanted to be a model and actress when I was younger but did not have the courage to try as I was fat. I was too self-conscious and always worried about what people would say. “I am more ready now to fulfil my childhood dream.”
