Kuala Lumpur, March 24 (DPA) The wives of Malaysian Armed Forces’ officers were urged to join a slimming programme to draw the attention of their husbands, a news report said Tuesday.
The recently launched programme, which roughly translates to “From fat, frumpy and lumpy to slim, fashionable and glamorous”, was aimed at giving make-overs to the women, organiser Rositah Mohamad Mawi was quoted as saying by the official Bernama news agency.
Rositah said the programme, which was launched in August, sets personal targets for the ladies, adding that it already boasts six success stories.
Many of the participants, aged between 23 and 53, were found to be lacking in the area of personal grooming and unable to catch the attention of their spouses, she said.
Rositah said participants were also given counselling by a nutritionist and subjected to health check-ups.
