I Lost 21Kg Weight & Gained 10Kg Back!






So yes, I lost 21kg in 4 months from April to August 2021 but I have gained back 10kg again as at December 2021!!!!! This is me being my open and truthful self especially since I was very open and vocal when I started my weight loss journey coupled with the fact that I used some products to achieve it and I was always updating my social media pages while on this journey.



Yes o, TLC Products were very instrumental in helping me lose a whopping 21kg in just 4 months. This is weight that had crept up on me in like 4 or 5 years.


Let me rewind to the beginning so you understand a little bit better. I started 2021 not feeling okay health wise, I was always having knee pain, couldn't sleep well, had breathing problems and my monthly period stopped! It got so bad and I had to visit a doctor around February who told me point blank that I was overweight and it was causing these health challenges I seemed to be having.


So the only prescription he gave me was "Madam, let me not lie to you...you need to lose at least 30Kg to be really okay again" Chai! 30kg how? "Sebi I was only weighing like 90kg (which I had weighed for like 2yrs or so) well that was my initial thought till he told me to stand on that their hospital scale again and mehn I saw 110kg!!!



I almost fainted, when and how did I cross the dreaded 100kg mark? A whole 110 when scale ends at 120kg or so? That was a huge wake up call for me and that was when I really believed that there was something wrong. As usual, I went back to God and asked Him to help me because I knew that I couldn't do it by myself. Interestingly, not long after, in April precisely, I "stumbled" across TLC Products. 





I got the green light from God and I started to take the products which included the Iaso Brew Tea, NRG capsules and Nutraburst multivitamins. My brethren that was all o! By May, I added dancing to the mix just taking my products and dancing 3 times a week in my house by myself no ceremony.



Gradually the weight started to shift, although, sometimes the scale won't move but my tight clothes started to fit again and by the end of August I was weighing 89kg! Boy was I super glad and was making noise "upandan" that I would be wearing bikini for Christmas. Alas it wasn't to be because tragedy struck!


You see, one thing I didn't mention is that I am an emotional eater. When I am overwhelmed or depressed, I EAT!! So yes, the TLC Products helped me curb my appetite and gingered my weight loss but unfortunately I lost my closest friend, Temitope Ogunniyi in September and it broke me! I stopped taking my TLC Products and turned to my emotional eating because it was and still is a shock that my BFF is gone just like that!


We had so many plans and we had such great memories together (I will talk about her in a seperate post)


So today, I decided to check my weight again after my son said Mummy when last did you even check your weight and I wanted to cry when I realised I am now weighing 98kg!! Oh well, as always, I thank God for this wake up call because I was wallowing in sorrow and blaming the unfortunate situation BUT the truth is that I still have a major role to play as well.


Hmnnnn….all this my story is just to let you know that weight loss is an ongoing process and you can't just stop even when you get to a desired weight. Especially for we plus sized women who tend to gain weight easily. YOU CAN'T AFFORD TO LET GO. It has to continue to be a deliberate and intentional effort to watch your weight and be in good health. Furthermore, the truth is that there is NO perfect solution to losing weight, you just have to continue to be intentional and deliberate about it.



So I am ending 2021 with a resolve to start watching the weight again. Also to start taking my TLC Products again because I won't lie, it really helped make my journey easier. Most importantly of all I have to stop turning to food whenever I am anxious or feeling overwhelmed with life issues. So, with this few words of mine, this is just to inform you that I now have 18Kg to lose and I know that if God did it before, He will do it again!


Therefore my 2022 goal is 80Kg loading...bikini body loading...So help me God๐Ÿ’ƒ๐Ÿ’ƒ๐Ÿ’ƒ๐Ÿ’ƒ๐Ÿ’ƒ
