Battle of the bulge continues

The past four weeks would have been the most miserable period of my life but for the indomitable spirit within me. Now I have decided to ignore the 'powers of darkness' called Nepa and continue blogging with or without power supply. There were just too many things either trying to distract or discourage me so much that I almost gave up on blogging.


At this point I would like to say a big 'THANK YOU' to everyone who has ever dropped a comment on my blog. Everytime I feel low, depressed and dejected, I think of all the love I get from here and move on feeling better. Comments from here spur me on. Blogsville is the best! Viva la blogsville! Blogsville rocks! God Bless blogsville!

Some weeks ago a lady walked up to me and handed over this flier on how to lose 3-5 kg in 7 days. I checked out the website and it talked about some kind of dietary supplement that is helpful in getting rid of the fat adipose tissues found under the skin by metabolizing them off *yawn*! I checked out the rest of the site and found a Body Mass Index calculator.My BMI index read 36.6939509389. It went further to label me as seriously overweight chick with obesity grade 2. There was also a 'Why you must lose weight' section which outlined the various diseases Related to Obesity and being Overweight. I simply took out time to bring out some excerpts to enlighten my fellow bloggers on the dangers of obesity.


1)Cancer

Research has shown that chances an obese getting cancer are double of the chances of a normal person. Man will have chance is getting colonic cancer, rectal cancer and prostate cancer; while for women, cervical cancer, ovary cancer and breast cancer.


2)Gynecology.
In gynaecology it is very common to see the consequences of obesity such as abnormality in menstrual cycle period, excess menstrual bleeding, longer menstruation period, hormones imbalance, difficulty in conception or infertility on the lower abdomen etc.


3)Dermatisis
Dermatitis will occur in regions such as neck, armpits, genital region, and area near the anus, where folding of skin occur, leading to inflammation and itchiness. Besides that, folding of skin as seen in obese, at areas such as waist and thighs. Because of the enlargement of heart, the blood flow back to the heart is slowed down, leading to blood pulling and dilatation of veins.


4)Joint disease
Because of more weight to withstand, the pressures on the joints are increased. This leads to the injury of the joints, hastens the wear and tear process, and finally leads to degenerative joint disease.


5)Diseases of the respiratory system
Obesity will cause the thickness of the chest and the fatty tissues distribution at the abdomen to increase. This will lead to the reduction in efficiency of the lungs, impairing the ability of the lung to exchange gases. Lack of oxygen and stopping of breathing during sleep are prevalent in this kind of people.


6)Fatty liver
The excessive fat in the body of an obese will be distributed to various organs, especially the liver, forming fatty liver. The scariest part is that it occurs without symptom, and will lead to liver hardening when the condition worsens


7)Formation of gallstone and gallbladder related disease
In order to metabolize the excessive fat in the body, the liver will produce more bile, which leads to the formation of gallstone and gallbladder disease.


8)Abnormality in sex hormones secretion
The function of sex hormones in an obese are easily meddled with, especially in women, for example abnormal menstruation cycle and infertility; as for men, erectile dysfunction is observed.


9)Gout
Obesity will lead to high level of uric acid in the blood stream, causing accumulation of purine, and hence increasing the chances of gout.


10)Stroke and cardiovascular disease
obese usually have very high lever level of lipid in blood, hence predisposing them to occlusion of blood vessels; causing coronary heart disease due to occlusion of coronary arteries, heart attack (Myocardial infarction), high blood pressure ( hypertension ) and stroke.


11)Diabetes
The insulin produced by obese in response to a glucose load is delayed or reduced, which leads to the impairment of normally utilization of glucose after meal, hence leads to high glucose level in the blood stream ( commonly seen in adult onset diabetes mellitus.)



So there is a need to buckle up and keep going on in spite of the many challenges I face daily. Eg. Fruits and vegetables going bad because of lack of adequate power supply for proper preservation and storage. I got tired of throwing away food so much that I started taking them that way instead. The paw-paw, watermelon, grapes,etc I turn into juice, hold my breath and drink.


A few folks have been telling me I look trimmer but according to the BMI calculator, I would only be fit and trim when my BMI falls between 18.5 - 22.9 with an average weight of 72kg. I look forward to the day when I'll dazzle in my size 14 mini-dresses again. Until then, the battle of the bulge continues...............

Lady A said...

I wish you well and you will get to your goal. I too am working on my weight, I was 244lbs, yup, at 5'3, and now I'm almost out of the 200's. Eating on meal a day worked for me, and I walked for 30-45 mins.

omohemi Benson said...

You can do it,
I believe it.

Nepa is an ass abi na PHCN,
utterly and totally useless.

princess said...

Keep up with the resolve, you can do it. I am on a weight loss goal too and am gradually getting there.

A Kel called Wonder ...... said...

Gud luck babes xxx

Yummy Mummy said...

HIya. Just wanted to encourage you to stay at it. I am sure you will reach your goal some day...

Also, remember that BMI's are guidelines. Everyone has a different weight/size that is sutitable for them. Anything less and they look too thin. You will recognise the weight when you get there.

In the meantime, let joy be your strength. Sorrow and disappointments drains our energy. Joy motivates you and lifts you up.

God bless...

Nyemoni said...

Keep it up girl... whatever your BMI says, just use it as a guideline but just FOCUS ON YOUR GOAL..... Good luck!

LondonBuki said...

BMI... please don't worry about that one for now. People commenting on you looking trimmer should be enough encouragement for you to go on.

You are doing well... keep it up!!!

Patrice said...

The poster is right, you will "Loose [sic] 3-5kg in Seven Days", because that is the weight of the money the scam will take from your pocket if you buy into it. Eating and exercising sensibly is the best way to go.

Overwhelmed Naija Babe said...

heya keep at it mami... youre on your way... so proud of your dedication...

Sisbee said...

Good on you.Stumbled on your blog via my babes and think it's all a great. Sad thing is I'm sitting her stuffing my face with pizza even when I've promised myself I must loose 17kg in 2 months by walking 3 miles to work and back each day. I'll be following up your progress, God is in control oh!

The Pseudo-Independent said...

Good to see you are doing great and thanks for stopping, I read your message. I miss you too. Hugs and love. May God continue to bless you, take care.

ps: we are standing with you and please dont let anything get you down...just keep going and am glad to see you are doing just that...x

Chameleon said...

Bluntremi said...

I know you can do it!!
Keep your head up ...your goal is closer than you think!!!
I look forward to helping you get those mini-dresses!!

TaureanMinx said...

Goodluck girl. You can do it!!!

ruke said...

Sweetheart...I can identify with you every single step of the way. WHich diet have I not tried, which machine have I not got on....Hmmmm

All I can say the battle of this bulge is definitely money in another man's pocket.

Putting on the TV is a constant reminder ...There is always one diet product they are promoting or weight loss programme going on.

I think my problem is descipline, I ain't just got it. I try, I really try, contrary to what people may think. What they sometimes forget is that we are not all the same; while it might be easy for some people to lose weight, for some, it is not so easy ...different metabolisms.

Sweetheart, I got your back, I'm back on another weight loss programme, but this one is called lifestyle change. Where I work on identifying issues behind my weight gain and work on changing my lifestyle for sustainble change.

I have used this site www.fitday.com, a good journal site to keep you on track.

Tara,

Erectile difficulties become more common with increased age. Only 5% of men at age 40 experience difficulties, compared to 20% of men at age 65. The good news is that, nowadays there are a number of ways apart from the impotence drug Viagra available. There are a variety of factors that contribute to impotence. http://www.buy-viagra-with-us.com/
