My health regime: 6kg gone!

For a long time, like so many women, I have struggled with my weight… you see, I’ve never been the slim girl but I have certainly had a steady increase in weight through the years. As a Life & Wellness coach, I have helped see people through various goals, including their weight goals. I have motivated and stuck it out with my clients…. I have taught them the power of taking full control of their lives, and building a can-do attitude. I love to live by example, so, I apply all I teach to various areas of my life. I have however never accepted defeat in the weight loss department…. although it seemed like I had lost the drive to keep up.

I remember my first year in college, I was fresh from Nigeria, and had stuffed myself with burger king (double whopper with bacon and cheese) and pizza hut(chicken&pineapple toppings YUM!)… sadly, thinking of these horribly unhealthy meals doesn’t fill me with disgust… I still love oily, fried, fatty foods! By the end of my first year in college I was up to 80kg from my arrival weight of 75kg. I am quite tall for a lady, so that kind of helped cover up the reality that I was overweight…. sad thing is…. I still am. I still get the ‘you’re very okay for your height’… but I know the truth… I know what the scale says… I know how much I have gained over time and how I’ve struggled over the years to lose it.

I have learned severally that all I have to do is change my lifestyle… The weight will come off steadily but surely. I usually took the easy way out (Cambridge diet, Greenworld, name it!)…. which works well, but never permanently. I also used my kids as an excuse, ‘I’m a new mum, still breastfeeding’ I would say, but that started getting old and I came to realise that if I don’t take full control of my health, I will balloon to a very unhealthy size, and will not be physically able to do all I would love to do with my family….

2 weeks ago, I weighed in at 93kg, I checked my weight that morning and gasped! I was once 122kg, I struggled over the years, but by the time I had my second son, I had managed to maintain an 85kg weight (which was 10kg from my goal weight)…. I was however comfortable and planned on changing my lifestyle to gradually achieve my goal weight of 75kg….instead, I gained 8kg! This was just a very demoralizing new development and I decided…. No More!….. maybe, just maybe I can stick to this ‘healthy lifestyle’ and create a much healthier regime for my home, my children and most importantly my self.

My kids make work out time so much fun! Loll

Please follow me on this weight loss journey, I hope to inspire as many as I can to do the same…. Hopefully, we can achieve our weight goals together and begin a truly healthy lifestyle.

 

My Regime:

  • No food past 7pm (I still drink water till bedtime)
  • 30 minutes mild workout in the morning (downloaded some @adaari workout videos)
  • 20minutes mild workout at night (@adaari fun workout videos). I may or may not increase my workout intensity, for now this is all I do (I cannot ‘kiiii’ myself ‘lol’)
  • Moringa green tea ( you can use any green tea); one cup in the morning, and one cup at night.
  • Smaller portions (I still have breakfast, lunch and dinner… I just eat one-third of my regular portion size)
  • Substitute one meal with a good amount of fruits/vegetables (I picked dinner to substitute. My lunch is usually quite yummy and I love breakfast a little too much) ps: fruits for dinner will make you hungry in the morning.
  • No alchohol (I had a glass of pineapple/malibu cocktail last weekend though)

Notice that this is not an extreme life change. This is a subtle life change that anyone can do. The stronger you become in this life change, the better you can adjust to an even firmer regime. I will post updates every 2 weeks (or more often when I can), till I hit my goal weight. Follow @evezboudoir on instagram for more up to date info on my journey. There may be some setbacks, some challenges…. but on this weight loss journey, one must never give up!…. Let’s go!

I do not know it all, but the little I do I try to share and hope to also learn from you in the process. Please shoot me an email info@evezboudoir.com and follow @evezboudoir on instagram and Twitter.

Like I always say, don’t stay trapped in the norm, unleash your alter ego!

Love,

    in love with this post cos I can soooooo relate whew! Fighting the weight loss battle ain’t easy especially trying the lose the baby fat realized the key to it is portion control (but unhealthy food can sweet Kai) and excercise like u said me sef cannot kill myself a 30minute walk a day can make a difference or even 200 skips slowly but surely determination is key God help us.

    Wow Nina, thanks for killing my breakfast vibe this morning lol. After reading your post, I couldn’t help but put down my fork, which was loaded with sausages and potatoes. I’ve decided to join you on this journey to a better lifestyle and I pray for the strength to say “no” to the temptations. Good job on the weightloss by the way and I look forward to sharing my success story in the near future. Cheers!

      You may not necessarily need to loose weight, but I certainly think you should join the ‘healthy lifestyle’ movement…. you may loose some pounds along the way, but hey, that’s good too! Lol

    Hi Nina, I went from 74kg to 55kg due to sickness then went from 55kg to 102kg due to medication and pregnancy all under 2years.
    I currently 75kg and my goal is 72kg! With no gym or exercise haha! I found warm lemon water in morning very very helpful plus all the other stuff you mentioned especial portion control. So, yassss, you will surely get there! All best!
