Comedienne Lepacious Bose has given details of how she became overweight, before her long battle with weight loss. According to Bose, her eating habit gradually led her into adding a lot of weight. She said this while throwing light on her journey to weight loss on social media.
“So I woke up around 3am, I was thirsty, drank two cups of water straight up, then the thought hit me, I have come a long way, I stretched, smiled and reflected. You see in the past I wouldn’t have thought of water, even at 3am my first thought would have been coca cola. Yes at 3am. I was a voracious soda drinker, would take at least 4 bottles a day and for me it was no big deal.
“I used to start my day every single day without exception (except of course fasting days) with a mug of delicious rich creamy coffee with a dash of Irish Cream,the feeling was heavenly lol. Then on my way to the office (yes office, I do go to the office every day) there is a woman who sells hot puff puff on the way, my friend and I will buy some and settle down with them in the office and of course I will wash it down with a drink, please note that all these is not even 10am oooo. Hmmm fast forward to lunch it’s around 2pm and am starving (despite plenty silly stuff like biscuits, sweets etc in between)so I send someone for food, ofada rice swimming inside plenty unhealthy oil and beautifully well seasoned fried meats… I eat it with joy life is just beautiful. Lol. I will not bore you with details of what the rest of the day would have been like.
“My friend Odinaka a fellow lawyer was telling me just yesterday how when I started my Weight-loss journey and we would attend workshops together she knew this time it was for real. She said Bose will drink about 3 liters of water through training classes, and would not snack in the middle, during coffee break, she would collect all her snacks and give them to me and say oya Odinaka eat them for me, you can afford to eat them, (lol I laughed hard when she reminded me about these things because I was not even aware she was noting them) you see during training I used to collect extra of everything from snacks, to food to drinks etc.
“So she could not comprehend a new Bose who watched everybody else ate during lunch and had only a piece of fish and one table spoon of rice for lunch and did not even eat dinner, no for Odinaka this new Bose meant business. Yes indeed, av come a long way, make that change today, determine to kick that fat,” she said.
