I must be fat by force

Friday 27 September 2013

Hello lovelies

Lately I've heard a lot of ladies say things like 'I'm too fat', ' I need to hit the gym'. I just give 'em the 'purleaseee move' look.
Can you imagine?
You guys can't understand. Perhaps I need to start talking more about how to gain weight for ladies who want to.

Okay this is my story *ahem* Story as in weight-wise!

I am NOT fat, as in NOT at all. In fact, I've never been 'fat' and when I say fat I mean going past size 8. This is annoying. I need to get past 9st. I am not a model (for now) although I've been in a couple of contests-  I enjoyed them though but I need to get fat as in fleshy. Not extremely fat but fleshy (catch my drift?).

Sometimes it's my fault - I do not eat enough. I can feed the entire nation and ensure they get fat in one day but when it's time for me to feed myself, I don't eat as much.
I've been scolded so many times by friends and family but I can't help it, I cannot control my weight - I have no reason whatsoever why this is/was but I don't like at all.

When I do eat, I always unconsciously do things that involves a lot of energy such as walking or cleaning or studying (yes requires plenty energy) and before I know it the 'fat' has gone.
Le Sisto once took a walk with me (almost 2hrs) and man she could not believe it. She hasn't been on a walk with me for a while now. Can't blame her, no she's not as slim as I am.

There's was a time I lost 6kg in a week, that was a shocker and a wake up call for me.


Sometimes I look at my pictures from the past (when I was a bit fleshy) and compare them to my non-fleshy pictures and I just smile and sigh.

I used to skip breakfast on a school day, and barely have lunch and then have dinner.
On a free day, I'd have breakfast at 11 and then the rest follow on later and later and later.

There was a day I actually 'forgot' to eat. I sat on my bed and thought to myself, what did you eat today? Then I realised I hadn't eaten. It was a busy day I think (my excuse).

But I am turning a new leaf, changing these habits RIGHT NOW.
I want to get fat as in become a size 12 or 14.


So I've been trying to feed myself more these days and with plenty junk as well.
What else can a sister do to gain some extra 'fat/flesh'?
All of thee that are trying to lose weight? Do you have any tips for the opposite.
I shall update you on this journey!

Parental Guidance or Decision?

Thursday 19 September 2013


Hey lovelies

I'm trying to redeem my image and blog frequently like before so please bear with me.

It's no news to anyone that parents often coerce their children into doing (studying) things they do not want to.
Then they sometimes end up confusing them.
It's fine for parents to 'guide and support' their children in what they want to do and provide appropriate advice. But they often do not see the wonders a child can perform in their chosen field, rather they just look forward saying Drs, Lawyers, Engineers always hit it big so they must be in that line.


I was in boarding school for a bit and every morning, the house matron said 'I want you all to be like Okonjo-Iweala'. Who wants to hear that every morning when we are meant to be praying but hey I still appreciate the fact till date that she set a goal for us and we are by His grace working towards that, minus the headgear.


Years ago, a friend of mine spoke about what her mother wanted her to do and that hit me hard. She said with emphasis that 'momsy wants me to be a blah blah bla'. I didn't want to start going into too much detail but I just listened and encouraged her. She's a graduate now and I still wonder if she is really happy in that line.

I also heard a story about a guy who studied medicine just because his parents insisted. This young man finished med school and framed his certificate and gave it to his father. He picked up his paint brush, pencils and whatever is used for art and ran with it.

Is there anyone that can tell his or her parents that after high school, I want to become a singer (meaning no more school) and they'll say okay darling, that's fine. Some might but certainly some will say the child is high on helium. Instead they'll hire extra tutors for their kids when they just are not interested in a subject, they believe they aren't 'pulling their weight'. This makes school drag and just a phase for them rather than an interesting time.


The movie Good deeds, Wesley Deeds wanted to be a biker but his father did not approve of that so he had to stick with the goal of taking over his father's business. He later gave up and followed his passion.

When an individual is stuck doing something they do not want to do, they end up ageing quick (I think), being grumpy, struggling and finding every work day stressful and unbearable.

It does work out for some and not so well for others.

When an individual does something he or she is interested in, it becomes second nature and work is not 'stressful' because you enjoy what you do.
Whatever you want to do, always have an insight that you can be the best. Be it an artist, a model, an architect, a poet, a writer, a politician, a manager, a doctor, a nurse/nurse consultant, a radiographer....whatever.

But if you prefer what your parents want you to study/do, then also put your heart to it and you can be the best at it - most importantly follow your heart and rely on God for direction.


Me and MTN

Tuesday 10 September 2013

Hello lovelies

I've been fine, thanks for asking in your minds.

First up, I missed the bloggers meet up in Lagos which was kinda annoying/sad because I found out on the day and time was far spent so I glued my butt to my chair. Wish I knew a bit earlier, that would have spiced my holiday too but.....huge sigh.

Moving on......
One thing that has really annoyed me in the past weeks is how Nigerians/ Lagosians like to moan. They moan about EVERYTHING and anything. Although some things are worth moaning about but wait ....what are you doing to make it better?

A visit to the MTN shop at the mall in Ikeja, I noticed people call it ICM now yeah?
Some people stood and some sat waiting for their number to be called, thank God someone spoke up so I knew we had to get numbers.
What did I go there for? Internet service. I had to sort my micro-sim out  but then I discovered it had expired, heaven knows how that happened (side-eye).
Anyway, the guy at the desk then said the system is down so numbers are not being generated. I simply looked down to ensure no ones foot was by chance in the way.  I left the store gently, some people just had to show how uncomfortable they were in the store because the oh so not smiling MTN staff there were almost slower than snails.
My theory, no matter how hard you squeeze your face, I don't think its going to make them work any faster.

I called MTN customer service centre, and boy the adviser could not have been 'ruder'. He was absolutely  RUDE!
I hate yelling or being rude to someone I do not know over the phone, so I was furious when this urchin kept questioning me.
Let's call the guy MTN person.

MTN person: Hello good afternoon, my name is MTN person. How may I help?
Me: (uses the loud speaker)Hi!  I'm trying to top my phone up but it won't let me and my cousin is trying to transfer the airtime over and it keeps telling her that transfers can't be made to a postpaid customer and I am not a postpaid customer.  Is there a way you can sort that out for me? (Cousins and siblings laughing out really loud in the room).
MTN person:  please take your phone off speaker. (Me: switches to handset) what's your name?
Me: Tee.....
MTN person: Okay how may I help you?
Me: (my facial expression at this moment was priceless, considering the fact that my people were being so loud I gave him the benefit....) uhmm ookkkaaayeeee. I'm trying to top my phone up but it won't let me and my cousin is trying to transfer the airtime over and it keeps telling her that transfers can't be made to a postpaid customer and I am not a postpaid customer.  Is there a way you can sort that out for me?
MTN person: Please take your phone off speaker (raises voice)
Me: I'm not using the speaker (Cousin walks over)
MTN person: take your phone off speaker!!
Me: (I was getting angry at this point) I'm not using the speaker, are you indirectly saying I'm lying? Baby T, can you hear the person I'm talking to?
BabyT: No.
MTN person: your phone is still on speaker
Me: maybe you should give the phone to someone else, they might be able to hear me better
MTN person: so are you saying I have hearing difficulties?
Me: Nope! you wont stop arguing with me over the speaker issue maybe you should give the phone to someone else.
MTN person: People have been calling to say they have issues with airtime and blah di blah 

Suddenly suddenly, he happened to have heard everything I said beforehand acted like the speaker was never a big deal.

I felt bad inside that I just had a mini go at someone I don't even know so I felt I had to end the conversation on a good note but....... Honestly I was too angry to care. 
He was unable to sort the issue out and it took a day or so to get airtime on and all that. 

Are they really that rude? Like what's the point?

I called earlier to ask about data plans but this lady spoke like she was reading off a script. And even before we asked all the questions, she already said 'thank you for calling MTN, do have a lovely day and she hung up. 

MTN, y'all need to get your act together. 

Missy Tee.
