I have been fat right from birth. Of course not 100 kg at birth, but eventually got there after I had the girls. This really wasn’t a problem at that time since I was considered a ‘thick’ Madam and in the south-south part of Nigeria where I come from,’thick’ was beautiful! Then some months ago, during a routine medical checkup, the report was B-A-D . I was devastated to say the least, my physician encouraged me with these words – lose weight and these health problems will be taken care of.
With those words from the physician, the decision was made. But hoooow do I lose about 35 to 40kg of weight? I went into a thorough research, started implementing my discoveries. It worked, but I kept falling short.
The Weight Loss Mama blog is about me going public with my weight loss for accountability.
I can’t remain overweight! Definitely, I can do better than this. I have to take care of my health and do the needful. My hubby needs me. My children both physical and spiritual need their mother. Not to mention my family and friends. I CAN SURELY LOSE WEIGHT! Why don’t we synergize and form a community of women losing weight?
Better still, do you want to lose weight for whatever reason?
