It is approximately 1 year that I started my fitness journey. Don’t get it mixed up! I am not a Model yet, nor an actress I am just a self-acclaimed internet personality. So it took me 1 year to achieve a conspicuous weight loss.
I would like to commend myself, I have done pretty well although I am not there yet…
Believe me; many years ago I used to be a size 8!!! Hahahaha not funny! I am being serious. I gradually saw myself became a size 10, 12, 14 16 and almost 18.
It was almost like my soul was trapped in another body. I was not happy at all. Being a pretty small stature person – I am 5.5 I couldn’t really carry the weight I had. Vividly, I carry my weight on the upper area of my body. It was a struggle for me because at some point during mid-2015 I weighed 80-85kg.
Let me not even mention that I couldn’t find nice clothing in sizes 18, I was becoming sick and I knew I had to do something to stop it.
I started ONLY Saturday work-out, my excuse was I barely had the time to hit the gym. Well, Saturday workout didn’t do much for me. Then I thought of going under the knife but when I heard the negative stories…. I freaked out and sourced alternative means.
I am not going to lie; I took slim teas, tablets, and cream etc. nothing worked!!!!!!!
After all these failed attempt, I sat and thought of what I could do to help myself. That was when this crazy, insane idea just crossed my mind.
On my next article I would share these tips with you. The good thing about these fitness tips is that there is a plan for everyone and you don’t need to spend countless hours in the gym. It is best for the working class, the busy bees and even you can adopt any of the steps as a life style.
Relax and inform anyone you know that is struggling on weight loss.
Fashion maybe all about fabric, what is in the stores; what is trending and could change at any time but your style does not change!
Your fashion style is your point of view. To have style is to have something extra; it could be risky, dangerous depending on how you handle it.
Have you ever wondered what your fashion style is? Did you know that your choice of dressing could sometimes define your personality? Did you know that your style gives the first impression about you? Even before you introduce yourself & potentials. Like it is said “dress the way you wish to be addressed”
May 1st & 2nd 2016 was the first annual food & drinks fair organized by GTBank.
All they foodie lovers gathered and of course fashion style was present!
I had the opportunity to speak with some of the stylish ladies. These are their stories.
