Wanderings Of A Plus Size Diva ( Christmas Crimes )

Big bird, those are my exact sentiments! 
     I'm meant to be on a diet, work out regularly and all that, and though I've been doing this for a while now, this isn't just the season for that. Yesterday I went to Cold Stone with a friend and she kept singing praises of the Cold Stone special so I ordered it. This was at about 8pm. Now, what makes this pathetic is the fact that all day, I'd barely eaten anything. I had a few slices of wheat bread for breakfast and some brown rice for lunch. I was doing so well. But then at night when my jaw should be locked tight, someone bestows all the good qualities in the world on a cup of ice cream and I threw away my resolve. So I watched the lady lift a very large scoop of ice cream, pour into it some chocolate and caramel thingy, throw in a very chocolatey brownie and some pecans and stir! Then place a cone dipped in chocolate into the cup and put my ice cream in. Wow! So I sat down there and gobbled it up, and believe me, it felt better than sex! But right in the middle of this very orgasmic moment, my friend's elder sister walked in in all her size 6/8 glory. That sort of killed my vibe. I watched her thinking, wouldn't I want to look like that? Yet I didn't want it badly enough to dump my ice cream. SMH. When I finished up, I was almost succeeding at not hating myself when I remembered the previous night. 

       Now, similarly I had had about 1500 calories that day. Evening came and I went out for drinks with a friend. I had a bottle of Savannah and I was feeling very happy with myself. As we were about to leave, a little devil in my head reminded me that food is sold all night at The Place. So I asked my dear friend, and he said we could go. I don't know if I wanted to empty his wallet or maybe the food looked particularly good that night, or because what should have been a romantic evening had gone awry and I felt I no longer had a reason to try to look good in front of this guy, but for whatever reason I ordered like a greedy student. You know those types that you take for dinner and they end up getting food for all their roommates and roommates' brothers and sisters, right? I ordered Chinese rice, with fried fish (2), asun (two portions), fried chicken (3) and shrimps (3 portions). I'm sure my friend was wondering what was going on, we've been hanging for over a year now but he's never seen me buy so much food. I'm such a "golly" that I was meant to meet up with a friend @ Sip but mehn, the food in my hand was just too seductive so I went home. After 11pm last night I consumed food enough to feed a small family. Before you totally condemn me, I didn't eat all of it that night o!

Some days ago I read Nelly's story and was very inspired. My resolve was strengthened. I was going to do it! I had made all the plans, I knew all the tips. I was geared and raring to go. I was even going to mail her and get the workout video she used/uses. Little did I know that Christmas had other plans for me. I would like to say I'm repentant and would immediately resume my diet but I'm going to be honest with myself, the season isn't over yet. I only pray I'm able to stop this gluttony once it is. 

How's your Christmas been guys? Am I the only the only one who's been naughty this Christmas? Please tell me I'm not, I'm begging! 


  1. I finished a big bowl of fried beef! I didn't feel guilty afterwards..even wanted more!

    1. LMAO. Chocolate brown you have no reason to feel guilty. Your waistline is not at risk so you can afford to. Unlike some people I know. Lol.

  2. I can't remember the quantity of different foods I ate only on 25th alone. It's a good thing that I can easily gain and lose weight. Lolz.

  3. Am trying ooo on christmas day I dint even eat much..#imustloseweightbyforce

  4. You are so right , every time i say i am starting a diet , in my head i am going all the way , i spend a lot of money buying things i cannot and will not , I was too optimistic and picturing my self with six pack . Now i am like i will be skinny when i am successful . I am a UK 14- 16 but the belle and love handles nah wahala , i have my curves.

  5. i started this diet and workout thingy in October, and lost about 9kg by first week of December......then my exercise group went on a break for the Christmas and voila!!! I'm so scared of getting on a scale ehn...scared of what i will see.

  6. Unfortunately, a friend of mine opened a pizza place on the 24th and a day hasn't gone by that I didn't eat either pizza, shawarma, burger or all three and I've told myself I'll burn it all when I get back to Lagos. For now I'm having too much fun to care

  7. How about you forget about the dieting and just reduce your portions, eat six small portions each day drinking 2 litres of water per day, find a physical activity you love doing it could be dancing or walking and do that the weight will fall off without u even noticing.

Turia Pitt Suffered 65% Burns But Loved Conquered All...

Amazing Story Shared by Dr. Ben Carson on Facebook, i thought it is inspiring and i decided to share;

The Australian ex-model Turia Pitt suffered burns to 65 per cent of her body, lost her fingers and thumb on her right hand and spent five months in hospital after she was trapped by a grassfire in a 100 kilometre ultra-marathon in the Kimberley. Her boyfriend decided to quit his job to care for her recovery. 
Days ago, in an interview for CNN they asked him:
"Did you at any moment think about leaving her and hiring someone to take care of her and moving on with your life?"

His reply touched the world:

"I married her soul, her character, and she's the only woman that will continue to fulfill my dreams."

This made me very reflective. I just wonder; if the person you love today encounters an incident or accident that transforms who they are physically, it could be amputation, it could be paralysis, it could be severe burns that scald their flesh beyond recognition, w…


Good morning people! 
Just checking in to sign the register. Lol. It's been a very busy week and it looks like it might be an even busier weekend. I was hoping to get some writing done when I got to the airport yesterday but I even almost missed my flight. It was hopeless trying to do any work on the plane as it was bumpy af, and this toddler behind me wouldn't stop screaming in piercing shrieks like he was being exorcised. 
I got into town pretty late and needed to keep an appointment ASAP. I'm heading out right now and it's going to be a long day, but thought I should drop this first. 
Have a splendid day. Im'ma be back soon.

One More Post...


He was my coursemate, crush, then my boyfriend.... he was super
intelligent, smart, tall, dark and handsome. Believe me he got
swag, but he didn't seem to notice me. (I'm a nerd but a sassy one
if I say so myself).  So oneday I decided to take it to another level..
After listening to a song "IF YOU LOVE SOMEBODY TELL THEM THAT YOU
LOVE THEM and watching the season film of The Secret Life of
American Teenagers. ..when Amy Jeugerns mum told her "you are only
young once". LOL that part got me.
Hope you know what i mean?

Though I'm okay with chemistry class I approached him to coach me for
the Quiz that was coming up, we found out that we had this
great chemistry between us.. hehehe both the covalent and
electrovalent bonds....

So one thing led to another till one unusual Saturday. I invited
him to my house and he came. The guy got swag, he even came
with a packet of durex condom.
We talked for a while and and and and and and
See how you are serious dey read this story....!


A side chick is commonly known as a mistress or a woman that’s romantically involved with a man who is in a committed relationship.  However after doing some reflecting, I realize that’s not the only type of side chick.  I want to discuss “the new side chick”–a woman who decides to stay by a man’s side after he has expressed his lack of relationship intentions with her through his words or actions.  So many women have made this mistake at least once in their lifetime, and unfortunately I’ve done the same thing. I like to think of the new side chick as an appetizer.  You’re there just to satisfy the immediate appetite of the man, but as soon as that mouth-watering entrée comes out to the table, you will get pushed to the side, literally.  Why?  Because that entrée is what he really wanted; he went to the restaurant to order steak, not hot wings.  You were just a placeholder, fling, temporary commitment, or  maybe even just a “good ol time” until what he really wanted was presented to hi…


I'm in an amebo mood tonight. Don't ask me, I honestly don't know why. Also I'd like to share too but I'd do that anonymously in the comment section. Tonight I want to talk about secrets. It's ok, we can all be anonymous. 
Is it true that EVERYBODY has a secret? 
Is there anyone here who doesn't have a secret? I'd really like to know; You're a completely open book and there's not ONE thing about you that you wouldn't mind other people knowing about? Please raise your hands up. 
And for the rest of us, what's something about you that no one knows, or very few people know? Who's got a dark secret here, or a weird one, or a funny one even? I really don't mean to be invasive but I don't want to be the only one sharing, plus I think hearing other people's secrets is quite fun, don't you think?

Let's Be Random Together! (Open Keypad).

Hey guys, a while back blog reader F said something about creating an Open Keypad post, where you can write whatever you want in the comment section. I thought it was a fun idea!
So who is interested? Comment on anything you feel like, ask me or anyone a question, talk about how your day went, your job, your interests, tell us something about you that we don't know, share a testimony with us, rant about anything you feel like, talk about your crush/boo/spouse/relationship/marriage, challenges you're facing, ANYTHING AT ALL! 
I'll only make one request; that we stay civil. 

(F it was you who made this suggestion, right? I'm not too sure and I can't even remember the post the comment was made on). 
BTW please Ejoeccome out come out, wherever you are!

Closed Chapter...

Hello everyone, yesterday a friend said to me, Thelma I love your blog, I've told so many people about your blog, I think you're a very good writer but I feel there's something you're not doing right"

This friend was the first person who won our beauty of the day contest back then in 2014. Then we had met just once through a mutual friend. I mentioned the blog to her and she became an instant reader. I wouldn't have exactly called her a friend then but yesterday as we sat down waiting for our Uber to come get us from Wal-Mart, she's definitely my friend and I knew she was coming from a good place when she said she had much higher expectations of my blog.

Me too.

But you see, in the last year or so, maybe even longer than that, I haven't felt much joy in blogging. It began to feel more and more of a laborious chore, one which I hardly reaped any fruits from.

I really love writing, I love sharing my life and my experiences with others and I've enjoy…
