Wanderings Of A Plus Size Diva. (Somebody Please Stop Me!)

I haven't done any WPSD post in a while because I'd hoped that those days were over (yeah right).
Well, unfortunately.... They're quite far from being over. And I have this past weekend to prove it. So I came to spend the weekend with *G because I knew I'd have peace and quiet here. Thankfully I've been able to accomplish as much as I'd hoped to but what I didn't anticipate or expect was the amount of food, nay, calorific junk I'd consume. On Friday night we went out. First I had to meet up with someone at Le Meridian and there was some buffet going on and we partook. I soon lost interest in my host (very annoying somebody) and G and I went to Façade to meet with my friend but we couldn't stay long because I really needed to get back home and continue. On our way back, I can't remember who's brilliant idea it was that we stop at The Place and get food. (We weren't even hungry!!!). So we stopped and bought loads of carbs that we really didn't need and barbecue chicken. Instead of going straight home we stopped at the 24hr store to get drinks and junk. We got home and 'consumed'.

Saturday morning came and I found myself craving Mega Chicken pasta and egg sauce. Without exercising any restraint I rushed there even though my tank was almost empty. I also had some grocery shopping to do so my next stop was Ebeano and of course I had to buy their extremely sugary popcorn. These were  only the first of many more things I shouldn't have eaten on Saturday. It didn't help matters that Chocolate had a dinner for her hubby at Rhapsody in the evening. Now, writing this makes me almost hate myself. After I left Rhapsody I found myself being pulled by a force that was beyond my control to The Place and that's how I went there and bought not one, not two, but five pieces of barbecue chicken, (But I also bumped into one of my ex-QC friends so it wasn't all bad). This was at almost 12am. Don't worry I didn't eat everything. LOL. 

This morning I woke up to the smell of breakfast. I got up and saw that G had made a full English breakfast. The feast was replete with French toast, baked beans, bacons, eggs, ham, juice, coffee and more. Quite frankly I didn't have the appetite and I was already feeling very guilty. But she pointed out that the food wouldn't eat itself and that's how I found me scarfing down over 10,000 calories this morning. Soon as I was done I downed some black coffee and commenced studying. Around 12 noon *M called and asked that we do lunch. I'd been putting it off for sometime so I gave in, we agreed on 2pm. We met up for Chinese and who can resist Chinese??? Lunch was rather brief as he had a meeting to attend, but first he have me a gift. 

So I came back with a full belly and these chocolates (minus 1), and as I opened my books I reached for one bar of chocolate and tried to focus.  G now came and said she wanted Cold Stone ice cream. Honestly I should have wished her goodluck and bade her farewell but I got up, got dressed and took her to get ice cream. (Blue Bunny, no power to drive to Cold Stone biko). The problem was that we didn't only get the ice cream, we also got a pack of Crinkles chocolate biscuit, which we mashed into the ice cream when we got home and ate like we just broke a fast of many days. 

Once that was done I got dressed for evening mass and headed to church. I found myself very contrite before God. I feel like I owe somebody an apology but the only person I owe is this body I inhabit. Everyday I wake up with a renewed resolve to eat healthier but by noon that resolve weakens. Sometimes I actually succeed but this weekend I've failed miserably. 

This is my confessional. I pray I go and sin no more. 

*In case you're wondering, that's not the same Burberry Weekend for the Beauty Of The Day Contest. I sent her gifts to her in Port Harcourt last week but unfortunately she travelled the day they got there so she hasn't received the package yet.*


  1. Meehhnn. Thelma my mouth is open after reading this. Not hungry and you consumed all that in two days? WOW! I have an idea...try this, though a bit difficult, but try drinking 2 liters(8 glasses) of water in the morning, and take deep breaths between 2 to 5 mins. That'll suppress your appetite for least till 12 noon ;-)
    Make sure you don't do any aerobic exercise for at least 5 days or your appetite level will shoot up again. After the first week of this water therapy, you can do your aerobic exercises.

    If you want to eat at all resist the impulse of sugar and fried foods. More veges and carbohydrates in moderation would do; preferably boiled or roasted yam. Your cravens can wait till you're able to lose about 40 pounds. Are you up for that? :D

    Tough but necessarily the ONLY way out for now. Next time *G calls you for 1st and 2nd breakfast, just smile and wave from afar. Be Blessed, and good luck in your exams.

    1. LOL @ smile and wave from afar. Thanks a lot Memphis. I will try this, I NEED to!

  2. Thelma, i just have one request,, Please let´s be friends. I will willingly take all your chocolates and whatever, and i could also help you be eat well.
    I hope my request is considered with your christian mind. Like, just look at all that chocolate, and perfume, and i am imagining the ice creams! Oh Lord!

  3. Thelma you must earn a lot to spend so much ooo. So much spending for one person. Lol. Use some of that money to get a gym membership.

  4. Wow that is so much food for a so much.gym membership idea is great.

  5. Pele. Mum calls me an ant; I have a sweet tooth and I've been paying the price with visits to the dentist. But these days, I've cut down so much that I'm surprised sometimes. The only thing that's been helping me is, think about my future! Weight, fitness, health status, skin quality and then I drop the beverage and grab water, fruit, exercise sometimes. I remind myself of how happy and "proud" I'll be of the benefits, if I cut junk and calories. It will help o!

  6. Adding on to what cccc and Memphis have said, if you must have junk food try and have it with something healthy, for instance you could have a piece of barbecued chicken with a healthy salad. And you can add lemon slices to that water to give it flavour.
    And everything starts with your mind train your mind to think a certain way about health and fitness.
    Finally allow yourself some junk food from time to time, but not like you did this past weekend.

  7. I wish could offer proper help but unfortunately i know exactly what n how ur feeling...and i can't stop laughing at the story of our life! Currently going through a 'good' phase; joined a gym n hve been consistent, don't have any tempting leftovers,no sweets jst lemon juice and greek yogurt, stocked up on grapes and apples for when my legs go to d fridge @ 2.30am without my permission AND i'm totally dreading when d self sabotaging moi would surface and d crappy life would start again! Wish u all the best love. O ga adi mma! And as i always console myself with, guys like curves on a girl (wishful thots dat work miracles for moi!)

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…
