Please Don't Call Me When I'm In A Black Mood.

Please don't call me when I'm in a black mood.
That's what was written on the Tshirt and I just had to have it. I was in a black mood and I was getting some unwanted calls and I saw that Tshirt and I could swear they made it just for me. Unfortunately it was NOT my size. The biggest size they had was way too small for me. Still, I wanted it! I'd never come across something that suited me or my mood more and I just had to have it. I let the snotty shop attendant know this and she told me in a bemused snotty manner, "You cannot buy it, the shirt can never size you". Ha! Although I knew she used the word "never" without giving it much thought, and although I knew she was right, the shirt was two sizes too small for me, I insisted on taking it into the dressing room and trying it. Of course I couldn't fit into it no matter how hard I tried to squeeze my body into it, but I wasn't going to give that snotty attendant the satisfaction, I took it to the counter and paid for it. "It's your size?" She asked, disbelief and confusion on her face. I nodded yes and gloated, almost stuck my tongue out as I walked away.

HOWEVER it was not my size, it was really too small. But that attendant said I would never fit into it and that was all the challenge I needed. Yup, two months later and I'm rocking my black Tshirt and if only I'd bought it in Lagos, I would have derived great pleasure in going to show the lady. Haven't you heard Never say never? Hahaha.

Anyhoo, it's been about two months since I went on diet and I've lost well over 10kg, about 15kg. As you can see I'm still a sexy orobo and this time around I'm not aiming for skinny like the last time, but I just needed to drop some pounds and I'm still working on it. Truth be told I went to the gym just once but I've adopted a healthier diet and everyday the weight lessens. I need to start hitting the gym though, because I do want abs, but most especially because I'm losing weight in all the wrong places. 

My legs are getting smaller and believe it or not, I don't want them to! I want slimmer arms but those ones are trying to defy me. RME. Also my booty and boobies are shrinking by the second and it's just frightening. My mum saw me last week and said "Where are your 'mammaries'?!!!". It's not even funny. So I need to hit the gym do some squats to ensure that my hips and butt stay visible while my waistline and arms shrink.

Has anyone ever told you you couldn't do something? Guess what, that's all the push you need. Get it done, the satisfaction you'll derive from this is greater than an opium high! And that's besides the gratification you'll getting from accomplishing something you thought was too difficult to achieve.

And people I'm in need of inspiration. I'm certain there are a number of us who here who have achieved something someone once told us we'll never be able to. Is that you? Please share your story with me. 


  1. Thelma o, help a sister.I've given up on working on my weight, the more I try the less improvement I see on the scale and I am discouraged to continue.How do you just do this?

    1. I'm sorry Anne, I know how frustrating it can be. I've gone on several diets, including the hunger fest where I lost about 45kg but none of them have been as awesome as this present one. In just 6 days I was noticing a difference. This diet has taught me that it's not enough to just cut out carbs and night meals, portion control is very important. So even when I'm eating green salads with no dressing or Italian dressing, I watch my portions. It is very very important. Even if it's just protein or just vegetables or even fruits or nuts, I watch my portions. For instance, the fact that you're having wheat bread isn't license to binge, eat two or three slices at most. Please continue to work at it, ignore the scale and stick to a healthy and clean diet and smaller portions.
      I know I sometimes lose weight quite easily, my prayer is just for grace to stay disciplined because I have a terribly sweet toothe and I still have a long way to go.

    2. ---and drink warm water and lemon juice (freshly squeezed) first thing in the morning

  3. This just took me back to when I was pregnant, DH and his siblings kept telling me to give my skinny jeans and skin tight gowns away cos I'll never fit into them again. I just smiled, I was like no need to respond now, my body would do all the talking. Fast forward to when I put to bed, the pregnancy weight dropped just three weeks after but I needed ripped abs so I went insane with workout insanity. Not only do all my old cloths fit perfectly, I'm even slimmer with flatter abs than DH's sisters who do not have kids yet. Hehehehe I didn't even remind them to eat their words, but I see it in their eyes. Haaaaaa. All I need now is booty like Thelms. We're almost there thank you weighted squats.

  8. Years ago, I needed to work but I had only a Diploma Certificate and in the process of obtaining my B.Sc. When I went to meet my youngest Uncle who was working in a bank then to help out (then there were a lot of people working with only Diploma), he told me point blank I could never find a job. It wasn't so much of what he said but how it was said, so hurtful. Some years later, the job I got with the same ND took me to UK where he stays for training.

    Also, one day, I saw one of my old pictures and I told my kid brother that I wish I could go back to that size. His response was a resounding 'NEVER'! Few months down the line, he and others started complaining how sickly I looked as I lost more weight than anyone would ever imagine.

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.
