Weight Loss Hiatus

Last Sunday was awesome. I went to Terra Kulture to see 'the trials of brother jero/jero's metamorphos directed by Laspapi. It was fun, fun, fun and fun all the way. The actors did really well by intermittently injecting some serious comic relief into 'Kongi's 'great works. Imagine Brother Jero, a prophet doing the 'yahoozee' dance steps while praying for a disillusioned soul. The entire audience was reeling with laughter. Laspapi put up such a great show.

I got to meet a few bloggers after the play Omohemi Benson, Olawunmi, Babshouse, Uzo and Daddy's girl. I couldn't stay on to meet the rest of the bloggers that came but I later learnt that they got to hang out together after the play. Some of the bloggers who saw me were like.......'What on earth has Mrs Somebody been blogging about? She's not fat?!?! She's just okay. Emm...........Just okay?!?!?!?!?

I don't want to sound like the girl who cried wolf by raising a false alarm when indeed there's nothing to cry about but I'm overweight. I used to wear Uk size 14, now it's Uk 20 even though the scales have refused to shift. I read it somewhere that by the time one hits 30, you begin to lose muscle and your metabolic rate slows down so you pack on middle age spread coupled with baby carrying fat; which really is a losing battle except you exercise to counter it.

Folks who knew me years ago still see me now and ask in a most bewildered manner.......'WHAT HAPPENED TO YOU'? While new acquaintances see my wedding pics and ask.......'WHO'S THAT??? Referring to the slim, delectable, innocent looking, gap-toothed, svelte, 5' 10' tall young diva lovingly leaning beside Mr Somebody........ME!!! lol! Next thing they ask the same question giving me the ridiculous puzzled look I get all the time ......WHAT HAPPENED???? As if I had done something really bad.

I think I should drop the whole weight loss thing for a while and blog about other issues. That way, I can focus on other things besides weight loss. I want to write about other areas of life. So weight loss moments will occupy the back seats till further notice. I'm not giving up yet. I'm still on it. I'll be back. Watch this lady in action.

Hey Madam!How body?
Thanks for hitting up my blog.

Really can someone go from a UK14 to UK20 without the scales shifting??

I have been on a weight loss plan for a while now too and am almost 2 dress sizes less but the scales are not reflecting that.

U guys had fun without me! Its not fair!!

Ubong da's special patient said...

Mrs Somebody, stop hampering on about your weight. You are BEAUTIFUL and you gat SEXY LEGS!!!! Come on Ubong da's blog and let's that "deal" you promised me (wink) a reality......

Sisbee said...

Mrs Somebody, I totally understand where you're coming from and where you're at (I mean first hand), but you know what, take a break, you know what you want to achieve, sometimes you just have to let it take a slow course so that 1. it isn't stressful and distressing and 2. The weight stays off for ever. I'm sure you're lovely and loved just the way you are. Tots!

Ugo Daniels said...

Amazing oyu guys had a blast. Hope you're happy now, eh? ;)

Obinwanne said...

tokotaya said...

Calabar gal's pal said...

Mrs S i didn't realise you were that tall. Maybe i just didn't take proper notice. Over here you can start modelling if you are 5"9", so since you're 5"10" perhaps you can start modelling after youve lost all the weight...LOL...only kidding. I'm glad you've decided to give yourself a break; good idea cos the less stressed you are, the easier it would be to lose the weight when you're eventually ready. I'm still battling with mine, fluctuating between a UK sz 12 and sz 14. God dey sha...LOL.
BTW what's going on with you and this special patient? You sef don accept her deal and she don even come here again come toast you! LOL. Hmmm Mrs S is there something you aren't telling us? Sounds to me like you're an undercover female version of Ubong da...chei you don spoil finish oo...naughty naughty girl (shakes head and wags finger)...Well, woteva rocks your boat babes...LOL

laspapi said...

My thoughts when I remembered where you sat in the show, were, "why does she call herself overweight?"

I think if you take your mind of the weight matter, you won't be stresed by it.

Nyemoni said...

coolie....I await you posts babe! Take care and keep your eye on the goal!

SOLOMONSYDELLE said...

keep your head up. Losing weight, especially after having childrne is not easy at all. Sometimes, it does pay to take a vacation from focusing on weight and body image. Recoup, regather and when you are ready, I'm sure you will come back stronger!

Can't wait to read your next couple of posts...

Bola said...

I understand why married women are always worried about being overweight,but I just must tell you that it's not easy to lose once you've gain it,losing it is a costly exercise.I've tried series of dieting drugs since I had my first child but no luck there,you're not alone in this,just take care not to gain more than you already have.After all some say it's a sign of affluence.(Laugh)

Nigerian Woman in Norway said...

it's about changing your diet. i put on quite a bit of weight some years ago. i then realised the african meals were not helping. i have one hot meal a day, and that's it. breakfast: cereal. lunch: salad. dinner: sth nice and filling.
and i snack on fruits, yoghurt and nuts in between.
i only drink water. and yes, i gym 3 times a week.
i have a weakness for cakes and pastries. but with all that gyming, i indulge that weakness.
