How I have lost almost 8kg in 2 weeks while breastfeeding

So am still here… My computer crashed but thank God is okay now. You see I have been consistent all through though I have not been posting here, I have been active on Instagram @nellyagbogu     Do you know hard it is to look at yourself and you can hardly recognise the person looking back at you? That was how I felt the day I came back home from having my baby I did not like my look, I was looking so bloated so the next thing that got to me was “Nelly stand on the scale”   You see, I have not been on the scale since after my check up during my post-partum meeting with the doctor And I had already added 2kg which I attributed to the stress from breastfeeding. I don’t sleep well Neither do I eat well, I also indulged alot in Ice-cream and pizza or Chinese because those were the easy things to get since I was alone with my baby. Getting home and climbing the scale and seeing such a huge number ( PLEASE ASK ME MY WEIGHT AT THE END OF THE MONTH) I cried and told my mom I don’t ...

Giveit100!!!

Hello Everyone, I want to really appreciate you all for all the comments and also let you know that my inconsistent blogging has been due to issues with my blog (which will be resolved by weekend) and also my unsettled movement around the world.       Let me give you a quick update about my life and I hope you join me in this phase of my life.   You see, I continuously struggle with food in the last past week. The worst part is that I know I know what my enemy looks like (sugar) Yet, just like a child playing with fire, I try to indulge Telling myself the lies that “I wasn’t that big enough compared to my last pregnancy or breastfeeding” Eating things that shouldn’t be just because “am breastfeeding” Allowing the weight to creep in from the back door once again And spoiling all the hardwork I have ever done. I have blamed it on the fact that I could not workout for a while And feeling homesick But we all know its all excuses.   So am back! I have decided to give myself 100days and dedicate to my workout of my choice ...

When life throws you a lemon…

      So for some days I have not blogged about my fitness or what I eat even though my weight loss journey hasn’t fully started again until after my 6 weeks postpartum. You see, it’s not been easy on me these past few days, having to handle a baby and so much going on in the background. In the beginning, it was kinda easy as my baby was always satisfied whenever she breastfeeds but these days she seems to feed more hours, thus not giving me time to do anything. And when she sleeps I drop her on the bed, she wakes up in like 10 mins. It has been difficult especially when you are living alone. You have to do everything with your baby on your hands. So I decided to take it slow atleast for now, I try to get some sleep while she sleeps and I try as much as possible to have my meals 70% clean eating and I still drink a gallon of water plus a day. The exercise will have to wait till I am settled, as am trying to make the best of my current situation. Oh! And the cold weather ...

The walking Apology

  Use Your Words To Create A Better Life   When I realised I was pregnant, alot of thoughts came running through my mind A part of me was glad that finally , i get to nibble on cakes and ice cream without being judged Because I had an excuse, Big excuse! Like I have always had all my life   Excuses are well embedded in my brain Like tapes running through my head Those voices that tell you that you are not good enough Because those people keep starring at you while you walk Some shaking their head and their kids honestly pointing at you and calling you “the fat lady”   Life isn’t easy neither is it carefree Everything is hard and difficult Nothing is spontaneous So you have to manage life You have to manage everything Even the amount of weight you add while pregnant so that you don’t have to start from the scratch again   So that you don’t have to need any help buckling your sandals So that you don’t have to snore gravely at night and being at risk to diabetics and heart related diseases So that you don’t have to worry about ...
