The Hardest Thing To Do!

I refuse to call my weight a bane on my life, I'm going to be positive; visualize the perfect weight for myself, work towards it, achieve it AND maintain it. But I wouldn't lie to you and tell you it's been easy. I've had to deal with being underweight, being overweight and yoyo-ing. In the last weeks I've seen my weight yoyo, mainly because I get to socialize most evenings and a lot of dining goes on. Just when I thought I'd mastered the art of saying no in the face of the most tempting and exotic buffets once it's past 6pm, I began to allow myself eat salads sans dressing. Then I slowly progressed to adding dressings, next thing I know I told myself some meat or fish won't hurt and then before I knew it, I couldn't say no to almost anything at all!

Still I promised myself I would put a lid on it, and I have, do far. Yet, after a rather productive business meeting and a tedious viewing of the company's warehouse which I was ordered to carry out since I'm in town, the MD of the company I had to liase with suggested we get treated to some fine Arabian food. I desperately wanted to say no, but the temptation was a bit too much! I indulged, albeit carefully. Still, I indulged!

It scares me to see the product of all my hardwork and discipline of the past months go down the drain. I miss having bigger butts but I don't miss muffin tops and squeezing by pudgy girth into girdles so that I don't look like a blob of fat. 

Through the years of dealing with weight issues I've learnt that losing weight is the easy part, maintaining the weight loss is the hardest thing to do. 

That said, I did enjoy lunch, it was splendid!

Have you been through the weight loss process? What tips do you know to keep the weight off (and please let's leave exercise out of it *covers face*. LOL)


  1. You better eat while u can - Nigeria we don't have the serious variety they have. Tomorrow is friday - you can do brunch

    Spectrum on One - Fairmont Hotel Sheik Zayed has a 7continent brunch withunlimited champagne.

    Mina Al Salam - Medinat Jumeirah is also another crazy exciting brunch with unlimited drinks...

    .just know thats your entire friday gone but i promise you wont regret it.

    You can also try trade vicks in Medinat Jumeirah for drinks - I recommend a tiki Puka Puka..

    Bring something back for us oh!

  2. O mehn! T bring some back 4us O!

  3. I'm so jealous of you right now. T the best way to manage your weight is exercise, try and get used to it.

  4. The only tip that worked for me is stopping the use of maggi or knorr cubes to cook any of my foods, I started shading weight effortlessly.

  5. I stopped eating maggi and knorr cubes and i lost weight effortlessly.

  6. Hi Thelma, it's Sandra from PM&C. Pls I need that yellow top, plssssssssssssssssss....... bring my own plssssssssssssssssss.

  7. I have no tips as i am currently struggling with fat. No matter how hard i dont try the weight refuses to shed. lol

  8. Please enjoy yourself. Life na once.

  9. Body building is the easy part for guys. Keeping the muscular structure is harder.


  10. I have added all the weight I previously lost; so sad!

    It's so difficult keeping the weight off especially if one has a crazy schedule in this ever crazy Lagos.


  11. No Idea. I'm trying to maintain my weight as I've started adding but its the hardest thing. I love that yellow top though and u look absolutely fabulous! And the food? Hmmmm... just enjoy it while u can. I'm jealous of u right now :(

  12. The colour of your top is very flattering! I recently found that yellow flatters me too...though I tips too bright. *shrugs*
    Losing weight has never been a problem for me. I usually find it difficult to gain and maintain it constantly. Though I've found that cutting down on carbs, sweets and eating not later than 8pm helps lose weight.

    1. ^*Though I think it's too bright

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.

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.
