I came back from holidaying in Lagos during the Christmas period of 2012 and to my horror I had ballooned to my heaviest ever. I mean, I was like a ball literally; I had been eating anything and everything whilst on vacation.
Over the years, I had tried to lose weight so many times and as a matter of fact, I had tried every diet under/beyond the sun (sounds funny but it is a fact), but no matter what I tried, the weight just refused to melt.
I became frustrated but surprisingly, I stayed determined and was desperate to change my “weight-story”. I knew I needed help and that I was somehow going to get it.
I joined Phat2Slim on 4 February 2013 weighing 72.8kg (and wearing a UK 14); two months later I was down to 67kg. It may not seem a lot but trust me the difference was very evident so much so that my weight-story indeed changed.
I have to be honest that it was hard work at first with all the change your lifestyle talk, but I soon got used to it. It has been six months and I am now a UK 10. I no longer buy clothes to hide and/or accommodate my weight gain – I now buy clothes to show off my figure.
One of the many lessons I have gleaned from P2S is that I do not need to go on a diet or take slimming pills to be slim; I just have to eat and exercise right.
Joining the club was one of the best decisions I have ever made. Many thanks to the ladies and Bunmi particularly for her one-on-one support.
