I had writers block this week, so I scrolled through my previous posts to find something! You see, Oreofetalks is committed to posting every Thursday @12 non EST!
I cannot stress the importance of a positive self confidence. If I got my validation from people, oh, I’d be a depressed mess now. I agree, being overweight or obese is nothing to be praised. We need to work on achieving our optimal health to avoid diabetes, etc. But when you’re currently in the situation, you can’t constantly beat yourself up, ok? You listening?? Please share you the good or bad experiences that you’ve had relating weight, fat, or too skinny, in the comment section.
This is from July 2015, but it is still very valid today. Enjoy!
If you’ve had the marvelous opportunity of knowing me over the past 5 years or more, it’s no news to you that I GAINED A LOT OF WEIGHT over those years.
I was a fat 10 year old, but lost all my chunky when I was mourning in my Nigerian boarding school. It’s real – I lost 9kg (20 lbs) in 12 days! Ask my mommy, no lies here folks, lol. I remember putting on my jean skirt my first break from school. AFTER zipping
it up, it fell to the ground. Over my 6 years of boarding school, I’d gain weight during holidays > 3 weeks, and shed it all off once I got back to school.
Exercise is VITAL. I get it, but if I’m to be honest with you, I’ll tell you that I’m not that committed to it. I think the most I’ve regularly exercised has been 5 consecutive weeks. Anyways, I moved to America June 2010.
