MY NIGERIAN WEIGHT LOSS JOURNEY DAY 26

Image
Brunch and dinner for yesterday Thursday, March 29. Before the carrot and cucumber smoothie was ready, I ate 2 boiled eggs sha. Dinner was just 1 cup of boiled rice and beans with stew and a side of cucumber slices. E nor bellefull me but I just maintainnnn...

After yesterday's planksand all, I couldn't find the energy to work out today, make I rest abeg. Still gliding on 80 kg this morning, I snacked on roasted groundnuts at night (Not advisable though) God be praised for how good I feel about my size as I look forward to my desired final destination which is 76kg by God's grace oh! Then I can increase my portions a bit and just maintain that. What ever you desire to weigh is possible, you alone have the power to get yourself there or to just give up and stay where you are just wishing. We can do this. I want to try and see if it's possible for me to lose the weight and return again to 76 kg (That's what I weighed after my first pregnancy. I remember nursing my firs…

MY WEIGHT LOSS JOURNEY DAY 25 CON'D

Image
Yes my goal for the weekend! The week hasn't even ended and yesssss I'm 80kg. I can't believe my eyes. I said by weekend I'll ,love to see my self drop to 80, it's Thursday today and 80kg is here. Yes 80 kg you are very much welcome as I look forward to getting back my very flat tummy, my slim arms or something close to, disappearing okpa moi moi folds at the sides. So, the reason this post is titled Day 25 cont'd is because yesterday's post was for Day 24 but I mistakenly shared it as a day 25 post. Scroll down to see my 5 minutes workout video trying to burn the fat that cause folds on the sides...

Day 25 OF MY WEIGHT LOSS JOURNEY WITH NIGERIAN FOOD

Image
I'm so so excited. When I stood on the bathroom scale and saw the figures, I just smiled to myself and concluded that my goal to drop down to 80kg by weekend is realisable and very very close. The results are slow and steady but sure. I won't rush this because I'm not looking at short term weight loss. It is a lifestyle change. I want to permanently change some things about my size and live healthy. Some friends are suggesting different dieting methods to help me lose the weight faster but that's not what I want. Losing it faster and gaining all back is what I have done in the past, in 2010 precisely when I lost some 10 kg in two weeks for a major event and right after that event, the cravings won't let me sleep at night. I wanted so much to swallow something with some soup, I craved for normal Nigerian jollof rice and fried rice like wetin? Couldn't even last one week longer before nI crashed like a... (Thinking of the word to use here sef). So, I returned to…

DAY 22 OF MY WEIGHT LOSS JOURNEY WITH NIGERIAN FOOD

Image
Yesterday Sunday,  March 25 marked the 22nd day of me trying to lose weight with Nigerian food. No breakfast. After all that Saturday rice, I rejected Sunday rice. Boiled yam with egg sauce was great. That picture was zoomed in, the real food plate looked really small. 3 tiny pieces of boiled yam with egg sauce.  (Looking back now, one piece of boiled yam should have been just fine) I snacked on 2 avocados and 2 mangoes and I ate just onion and lettuce salad with sardines for dinner.

Over the weekend, I went to my children's school and they noticed I'm losing weight. Commented that I look very different and that they love it 👍👍. I forgot to check my weight before rushing for church and I won't even try it after eating all that yam and egg sauce and washing down with chill zobo. Hopefully, tomorrow, I know where I stand. I'm more relaxed on weekends. My weight loss journey is more focused on weekdays, I don't…

DAY 20, brunch was Nigerian moi moi with 2 boiled eggs, I ate three not that I don't know it should be one moi moi oh, the hunger pangs and taste of that moi moi didn't help at all, early dinner was just soup (My old Nigerian groundnut soup from the freezer) with no swallow, then I served myself some small dessert... the smallest size of my favourite snack that I'm trying to divorce...

Yes! the digits are still dropping and I'm even a bit worried "I hope it's not rapid because I know first hand the disadvantages of losing weight too quckly. Been there, I saw the wrinkled forehead and regretted. Thankfully I gained it back and the wrinkles disappeared. The sagging skin wahala is another disadantages. When weight is lost too quickly, the body doesn't have enough time to adjust. The skin loses water and fat that initially filled it up, cannot adjust that quickly and begins to be sad and wrinkle. Losing slowly is the best as your skin doesn't even realize something (Fat) is being burnt out, so it naturally goes back gradually to original size. Lolz.

Yes. today Friday March 9th my weight has dropped to
