Weight Loss Diary – Entry 1

Dee now :|

Dee now 😐

Hello again 🙂 How y’all doing? Today, I’d like you to meet my darling, Dee (I’m the only one allowed to call her that. Her name is Deola. Respect yourselves). Anyhu, she’s joined the ranks of those who now want to lose weight. I, think she’s pretty decent, but her mind’s made up.

So, because I love her so much (and wasn’t threatened at all), we decided to give her a space here to write on her progress monthly. She’s a lovely writer, and one of my top supporters. I hope you guys enjoy her pieces.

I am fat.
There. That’s it.
Well, there is more to me than my huge thunder thighs and my “Mother
Theresa” arms. I’m pretty and smart and all those things. But nobody
looks at that anymore. It’s either you’re a size zero or you’re not
worth it.
I am worth it.
But I haven’t been feeling like that these past few months. Now, I
can’t find clothes to wear because all the clothes I have don’t fit me
anymore. They are too tight or they make my stomach look big. I
haven’t been wearing jeans for the past 3 months all because the ones
I have don’t fit me anymore. I have been reduced to wearing torn
jeggings and stretched out leggings just to feel good. But in the end,
I still feel like crap.
I used to have a weight loss problem before in high school. I had
anorexia. When I came from Saudi Arabia to Nigeria, I was very very
fat. My new classmates made so much fun of me that I refused to eat
for about a week. I had to be taken to the hospital when I fainted one
day. That wasn’t even the main one. I remember when I senior called me
‘a fat piece of shit’ in front of all my classmates, boys and girls
included. Fast forward a year later, and I was suffering from a peptic
ulcer and malnutrition. It was so bad, I was pulled out of school for a month.
When I got to university, I changed my eating habits. I slowly gained weight
and I looked healthier. I gained enough weight so as to remain healthy,
but not too much to become fat again. I ended up with a body that was
a size 2 up and a size 6 down. I’m not bragging but I had a slamming
body. My ex-boyfriend used to call me “curves”. Boys (and some girls) used to stare at
me when I walked into a room. My roomies hated me because everything
used to fit me so well. I would take clothes from them and wear and in
the end they had to give me because it looked better on me. On a scale
of one to ten, I was a smoking hot 20.
Now, I’m a size 12 all round. No fat ass and slim waist. I used to be
a figure 8 but now I’m 1. The weight came slowly and I didn’t notice
it until my boyfriend said “Your ass is getting bigger.” Honestly, I
didn’t mind that but when I saw that my favorite pair of jeans
couldn’t fit me, I knew I had a problem.
I gained all this weight by actually sitting down and not moving. I
never walked around anymore, I just took the bus. I never swam
anymore; I just got into the pool and splashed water around. Oh, and
lemme not forget all those afternoons of sitting down and eating food
and doing absolutely nothing.
I am not losing weight because I want to fit in. I’m losing weight
because I was to feel and look good. I am not happy with the way I
have gained weight and I wasn’t to change that. So starting this week,
I will diet and exercise every day until I lose all those pound s I
gained. I want to be able to walk around in a pair of jeans and not be
scared it will rip when I sit down. I want to feel good again.
So I have started this journey to lose the pounds that plague me.

Current weight -176 pounds
Goal – 80 pounds
