One of the best decisions I took this year was losing weight.

It was the single most impactful decision of my life but what I endured to get results was a traumatic experience that still leaves me with a shudder when I think back on it.

I was on vacation with my family visiting my sister, when I woke up one morning and took a walk around the house.

I caught my reflection in one of the framed paintings in the living room and stared at the stranger looking back at me in the mirror.

I was round like mortar without the pestle……….was that really me?

Aiye mi, temi ba mi.





How did I get here?

What was I looking at all these days?

That’s it, I told myself………….no more.

In the next few days, I reached out to a health coach, got a weight loss journal and went shopping for some exercise gear.
