A few weeks ago I attended an event with my friend and her mum. When we returned her mum did something really nice for me so the next day I called her to say thanks. I wasn't expecting what followed; she immediately shrugged off the thanks and told me I'm her daughter so anything she does for me is only normal. Then she said she had something more important to discuss with me. I'll paraphrase; "Nwando you know you're my daughter and I cannot lie to you, you need to do something about your weight. I know you've made efforts but I think now you need to start praying about it. Tell God you need his grace to stay disciplined, just tell Him and you will be surprised. Because you see, girls are not smiling these days o! You're still single and you know young men of these days don't really like fat girls. So..." She talked for almost ten minutes but I'll not bore you with the rest of it. When I saw this Instagram post below I immediately remembered that conversation.
“Letter To The Ladies! Vol. 2 (Stay Fit In A Competitive World) #CaseStudy : #Lagos #Nigeria..
Most young Ladies in #Lagos Nigeria have neglected their body and have developed “Pot Bellys” as a result of Excessive Eating and Lazy Attitude towards the Gym. Working out is a Necessity not Luxury..
It’s always shocking when I see young Pretty ladies at functions ; Parties, weddings looking like they are 3 months Pregnant when they are not.. As a guy who is quite Sociable I see this everytime and I’ve also overheard guys who may be potentials suitors complain about this.
Recent study shows that there are 7 Women to 2 men in Lagos.. We all know some Lagos Girls are not smiling so if you don’t want to “Carry Last” and u don’t want other girls stealing or competing with you for your Man I suggest you enroll in a Gym ASAP..
Primacy Effect in Psychology means Remembering First encounters more than late encounters.. In light of this Psychological Principle you may have only one chance to impress or catch a new guy or suitor.. If he walks past you and thinks you’re 3 months pregnant or you look like “Iya Basira” he won’t approach or follow up..
No Pain! No Gain! Test your body.. Please Note that this is not about weight ; you may be slim and have a pot belly, and you be Plus Size and also have a Pot Belly.. #DoktorMofin #Psychology #LetterToTheLadies Vol 2″

So to all the orobos and potbellied ladies in the house (I must have you know that I do NOT belong to this category. Hehehehehe. LOL), especially if you're still single, please note that girls are not smiling, if you think I'm joking go and check out them chica on IG, you'll understand. Haha! So we really need to intensify our efforts, ok?
PS: my friend's mum didn't suggest that I lose weight solely because of men, that's the part of our convo that applied to this post.
