Firstly, I’d like to say thank you for making 90% of the meals relatable except for the Japanese Bulgur and quinoa 🤭🤭🤭. The groceries were affordable as well🙌🏻
So I weighed myself before but I haven’t weighed after…I did not measure my wasteline before and after. I intend to measure the weight tomorrow and the waistline today and check after another one week of self rejuvenation.
But I can say for a fact that the tummy belt I use is not tight again 💃🏻💃🏻💃🏻💃🏻… That could only mean that I have shed some inches… Even if na half (imagining what I’d look like in one month is already getting me excited, hence the ginger to continue). Xmas body loading💃🏻
But beyond the losses, I have been on antihypertensives since Nov 2022, the Friday before we started I got the usual warning sign (headaches on a particular side of my head), I went to the doctor to complain and also possibly get a re-fill, but wasn’t given any drugs because he said he wanted my body to regulate my BP on its own… He said I should make a lifestyle change. This program came at the nick of time, so I reluctantly joined… Emphasis on reluctantly🤭
I week after, I have not had the headaches and I did not take any BP drug. I am monitoring and still monitoring. Everywhere stewww (low fat stew to be precise) 🤣 I intend to continue and “hubby is in trouble too” cos I intend to drag him in this week.
Today I had an opportunity to take Eba and egusi and my sub consciousness turned down the soup, went for vegetable soup and very small eba. Everyone at home eats when I eat. All of us must journey together…
Bottomline: I am now a dietician🤣🤣🤣🤣🤣
For me, my goal wasn’t necessarily to lose weight with this program but I thought if it happens then that’s a plus. (Some people seem to think I am okay the way I am, but na me know as e dey go🤣)
I am coming from a place of excess eating of carbs, junk food here and there. I hardly ever eat home cooked meal besides yam and egg or pancakes which always knock me out even while eating. I was aways bloated, tired and hungry all the time. But this program has helped me with mindful eating and portion control. My cravings have also reduced and I have not been bloated since we started.
My body had adjusted to eating little and be satisfied till the next meal. I never thought that was possible unless I am very broke. Although most of the clothes I have currently are tight and uncomfortable, this week I did not feel discomfort from seating or bending as I used to.
I am writing down meal plans to continue with and as much as temptations are around, I can say no because I realised that this thing is also a mind thing. I always felt I could eat anything and when ever I register in a gym I’ll burn all the fat (As if 🤣🤣 )
Now I am more conscious of what I am eating and I feel better and happy about that. And I feel light in my tummy With more exercise and eating the right way, I would achieve my goal weight soon.
I can’t put all the feelings in words, but in summary I feel new and rejuvenated!!!🥳🥳🥳❣️❣️❣️
Soooooooo, here is my testimonial.
First off, this program was haaaard for me. It came at a time we were super busy at work and when sapá bien Merci. However, I remembered I could use what was easily accessible to me which led to foraging for the veggies growing in our backyard.
Before now, I would feel bloated in the night and my clothes were tight in the middle. So, was my wedding ring. I would take a few steps and start panting like I fell from a height. I had said I was going to do all I could to lose some weight so I could help my blood pressure and the constant headaches I was having. So, starting this program was a step in the right direction.
I began the program weighing 118kg. I checked today and I was at 114.9kg. I legit danced a little at that. The ministry is moving. I have already shared how a friend saw me and commented that my face trimmed out a bit. I don’t feel bloated like before. I can totally sleep at night without feeling bloated and super tired in the morning when I wake up.
For the none scale miracles, one top I hadn’t worn in a while can fit a little without feeling so snug in the chest. My wedding ring almost fell off my finger today in the bath (this hasn’t happened in years!!), I feel lighter and I can take a walk without panting.
Thank you for this. I will sure continue on my own.
