Me+Update+Random

I don’t need a mirror to tell me that i have put on so much weight...earlier in the year i lost so much weight that my shoe size dropped from 40 to 39..i went to dress sizes down (from a 12 to an 8). But the weight is back again...i guess i have enjoyed one romantic dinner to many, i am somewhere between a ten and a twelve (UK) now and my size 8 shirts do not fit again.. sad..i am thinking of paying for pro flex gym for a month.kai! but the money....either ways dieting begins today.

For those of you that called on me to redeem myself, i tried this weekend o! Made goat meat pepper soup and fried rice and i guess it came out well. The boyfriend was pleased (dont think he had the pepper soup though)

In totally unrelated news, i got this call from some strange dude last week, after introducing himself, he said my cousin who is his mutual friend gave me his number, that he is looking for a girl to settle down from his(my) village and i came in highly recommended, that how old am I? That he doesn’t want anyone above 28...i laughed and said i wasn’t in the market and hung up...the next day my cousin called me and pleaded with me to just meet the guy, blab la, after giving him a piece of my mind for giving my number out without consent and blab la, i agreed to hang out with this dude..


So come Friday, he asks that we do dinner, i say no lunch and he says where i say chose..he settled for sweet sensation...i am not a fan..but hey, .anyways got there some mins before him, immediately he walks in and locates me, he says he is starving and practically runs to the counter leaving me behind. I have never been so amazed or laughed so hard my entire life..no need to bore you all with the date, but il summarize by saying he would never ever pick up the phone to call me again.

This week, i am off to Abuja for a month project..so no driving, no Lagos stress, waking up at 4.30 or traffic for me..for one whole month...i hope the hotel has a gym though..

Be safe and blessed people

I'm glad you're out of Lag for a month!
I was in Lag this weekend and I couldn't wait to leave, my friends are so shocked since I'm referred to as 'mama Lagos' with encyclopedia of routes intact but I guess, I'm getting old. Lol..
So you redeemed yourself huh? Kai and you didn't even keep some of it for me abi?
Some guys are just to insensitive for my liking! Go figure why they turn chics off well, except the desperate ones..
Have a safe dear!

Nutty J. said...

But hey...if u stay off rice (and I'm assuming Eba, yam and most carbonhydrate)...what then will u eat as substitute.

Tell me ooo, lemme start mine.

Staying off rice would be hard sha...i practically live on rice daily. :-(

doll said...

Yesterday I had beans and plantain, no meat, no fish, in the afternoon and ate an apple in the evening. Today, I had dodo and vegetable soup (efo)…at about noon..i’l eat an apple when I get home drink water and and go to bed. Normally when I am dieting I eat only one proper meal a day and it is usually beans and plantain , moin moin, dodo and efo, unripe plantain porridge, etc…and plenty fruits and drums of water and chewing gum to keep my mouth busy.

I know how refreshing it is to leave Lagos...mehn there was a time I left for 1 month and I came back anew...God help us. Enjoy yourself thoroughly in Abuja and yes please, look for the gym because...i wont say too much...

Lol at the dude...it seems like he does not pretend but my goodness, he does need some grooming...

When you come back pls come and take me to Sweet Sensation :-)

Good Naija Girl said...

Ok, this guy made me laugh! Maybe he was nervous about meeting you which caused him to to act so awkwardly?

Have a great time in Abuja. I wish I had had a chance to visit Abuja while I was in Nigeria!

PS-I kind of dream of one day losing enough weight that I drop a shoe size.

Seshe James said...

LMAO..........

Jokes apart, you too went on the blind date with someone like that, he doesn't want a woman above 28. Kia na 4 dere u go know say the guy don craze small. lol

The only way i know i can never be more than a size 16 is because i am always dieting. Its now part of my life. I am a size 8-10 now, but i feel like i need to be slim and i have to diet to remain slim. The heaviest i have been was a size UK 12 and that was horrible. I have the tendency to be fat but i am really careful and its all about portion control..

Don't diet babe. Diets don't work. Take it from someone who lost a lot of weight and has kept it off: just exercise and try to eat right in healthy portions!

I can only imagine wot went down...woteva it was...I am proud!...lol

Sugabelly said...

Good luck losing weight!!! It's so easy to put on but losing it is another matter.

Parakeet said...

Yeye dey smell...it's often those ones who have no manners that make demands. He doesn't want a woman over 28. He shud be so lucky if any woman would marry him with that stinking behavior.

Enjoy abuja ojare.

I've put on weight too but I cant seem to be able to go on a diet anymore oh. God help me.
