Praying My Fat Away!

This isn't a poem, it's just that after what just happened my brain seems to have shifted sideways...

I tried
The insanity workout
Last night 
After looking at me
In the mirror
I said I had to do
2 minutes in and
I said
god punish Shaun T. 
What kind of
Punishment is 
But I tried one more time
Sweat pouring 
Down my face. 
Then I stopped. 
What to do?
And dieting is no 
Longer as easy as
It used to 
Insanity is obviously for
The insane. 
I'm sane. 
Then a lightbulb went up
In my head. 
Is there anything too difficult for The Lord?
I'm going to pray my fat away.
I'll eat white bread with peanut butter 
and jelly, chocolates and 
cookies for breakfast
I'll have ice cream for brunch.
I'll have pounded yam and egusi 
For lunch. 
I'll have brownies for desert 
And wash it down with a bottle 
Of coke. 
I'll take a nap afterwards
For dinner at 9 I'll
Have fried yams and omelet 
And and toast spread with
Nutella to gauge it, then
Wash it down
With Horlicks and milk
just to ensure
That I sleep sweet and sound. 
And when I wake in the morning
I'll do it all over again. 
And I'll have nothing
To worry about,
I'll simply 
Pray my fat away!
Ok, I'm done dreaming
Tomorrow I'll repeat 
Insanity workout 
Day 1 
I'll do it for as long as
I need to
Till I can do it without 
Falling flat on my
Face and refusing 
to get up. 
But even while
I do that,
Maybe.... just in case 
You know,
Because I do believe 
In miracles,
There's one thing 
Won't give up on,
I'll still
Pray my fat away. 
Just in case...

Seriously guys this isn't a bad idea, is it?
My fellow orobos what say you? Let's join hands and agree together that our fat mysteriously and miraculously melt away. Amen. 


  1. Lol. Biko while you are at it, pray some fat into my life. And don't kill yourself working out ooo. We still need you on the blog. Take it easy, dear.

    1. Yes o! @pray some fat into my life. Some of us want a little of it

    2. Yes o! @pray some fat into my life. Some of us want a little of it

    3. Yes o! @pray some fat into my life. Some of us want a little of it

    4. Kai see life! While we try 2 pray em away others r begging 4 it! Wish we cld do fat VTU. I for dash u as much as u want!

  2. If wishes were horses.......
    Please do not relent. The results are worth the sacrifices.
    More strength and perseverance to you....

  3. Lol, this had me laughing, keep on going at it and in no time it will no longer feel like a struggle. All the best Thelma I know you will achieve your ideal weight.

  4. You are joking right?
    May God Give u d strength to continue the exercise so that you will be sepesepe figure 8

  5. Am not fat. Actually my BMI says I am healthy. I weigh 70kg and I am 5"11 . But I am not as slim as I want to be. It's a mental thing I guess. I want to be thin so badly that I do extreme things. It's me that needs to pray away my mental sickness. Something in my head keeps telling me I am fat, yet I am not. Is there any1 who has the problem? Is this a symptom of anorexia?

    1. It's actually a mental thing and what it is you do because of it is the disorder.
      I've been like that since I was 16.
      Like you, at the time, I weighed 70 kg and wanted to be thin so badly.
      I am 5'7.
      I began to eat and throw up and occasionally starve.
      People'd see me and scream, asking if I was sick.
      When I started weighing 50kg and people had to start talking to my mum about me, in my head, I felt I had been my prettiest at the time #smh.
      I have been bulimic till this day- I'm actually embarrassed to admit it- I'm even pregnant yet when I feel I've over- eaten, sort of, I go and induce it.
      I've read tons about every type of eating disorder, I have an indept knowledge of all the hazards of constantly inducing throwing up but, it's kinda like a habit.
      I've been known to indulge in self destructive tendencies tho but...... I really think I can stop at any point sha......
      I weigh about 79 kg now, I no longer fret with my weight as much tho- I think I'm at a place where I'm quite comfortable in my skin even tho I'm not skinny.
      So, there, it may just well be mental.....
      Anorexia is when you aren't eating at all and having that constant nudge that you are fat is actually one of the symptoms.
      I had to go anonymous for this, lol, I won't be surprised if someone decodes me.....

  6. LOL... T if I enter lagos for U ehn, na 40kg u go weigh oh. Na cane I go use flog ur mouth *no more food* & ur leg *u must work out*
    Thanks for making me laugh biko!

    But hey, Pray for strength. I know u can do it but don't over force please, like Enjay said, we still need u plenty!

  7. That insanity workout is really for the insane. I tried it once but unfortunately I tried it when I was in my first trimester, after d ordeal it felt like der was a war going on inside my stomach I dumped the cd fast I'm still scared of doing it again. My exercise of preference is jogging cos it works d whole body and it also gives me some alone time to think and make important decisions.

    Thelma if this prayer works pls do not hesitate to let us know, who wants to sweat and have aches just to fit into hot dresses when we can pray d flabs away?

  8. it's really not about working out..80%-90% is what you eat than working out..sometimes all you need is 1 hr power walk or 2 hours stroll. if you can, have just lots of water and green tea..cut white carbs, eat little whole wheat and lots of protein (not fried, low sodium) and vegetable with fibre.. you will see major difference in 2 weeks..

  9. Lots of water does help

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!

Question of The Day.

TTB readers doesn't this tweet below remind you of something?
That mail that someone sent me a few weeks back. 
But why on earth should a man sleep with his son's fiancé? But what am I saying, some men even sleep with their daughters...

Oh well, I'm throwing the question to you. What has happened in your life that you never saw coming, you never hesperred it, you never imagined could happen, you never imagined could happen to you? 
It could be good, it could be bad, it could be ugly. Do tell!
And it can be more than one. Let me tell you a few. 
-owning a blog -week long dry fast at Prayer City (I never hesperred it).  -staying in an (emotionally) abusive relationship.
The others require anonymity. LOL. Now over to you.
