Thursday Testimony: Sweetpie's Story

Morning Sweets,
I got a mail from a fabulous lady yesterday, shes also a constant reader of the blog. Shes part of the people that make me want to do this daily. She really wanted to share her testimony/progress with everyone, though she's yet to reach her goal weight. I applaud her for this. I know she's determined and will surely reach her goal by the Grace of God Almighty. Please read:

Hi Cheliz darling,

Before I begin to share my weight loss progress i want to thank you for this wonderful work you are doing in our lives. 
Last year around November, you know Christmas was fast approaching and we from the east always travel home for the celebrations. We buy new things and all that. One day, I was window shopping online, so I came across a lovely pair of 'peg pants' that i liked it, I wished I could have it but the company doesn't ship to Nigeria. Some other day on OLX I saw the exact pair of pants, I quickly called the person that advertised it and she sold it to me, it was size 10 and I was size 10 as at that time. When when the lady left I went inside the house to try it on, it didn't fit me. I said to myself "let me leave it till i slim down"( for my mind.) I began starving myself to slim down because i will be traveling home for Christmas and my mum had warned us her female children never to get fat as long as we are still single. She said "if you want to get fat, then do that in your husband's house." So each time I want to travel home, I just have to slim down by all means but, last December with my starvation o, I did not drop anything. Eventually, I couldn't travel with my new pair of pants that I had planned to rock with. There was also this top that I bought during that same period but, when I got back from the market after i purchased it, I discovered that it was a size too small. I just kept the 2 clothes in my box. I tried them again around April 2014 it was even worse, this time it didn't even enter at all. At this point I made up my mind to resell them. I told my colleague at the office about it showed her pictures of the clothes, she quickly accepted to buy them so I gave her a condition that she will come to my house to pick them up, she accepted. She kept telling me I will come today, I will come tomorrow, so I stopped reminding her about the clothes because at the back of my mind I was wishing to wear them someday. when I came across this blog I was soo happy to be here, I was soo encouraged by the people on this blog. I did the June challenge secretly, after the June challenge I decided to continue on my own. So on Saturday last week when I woke up something just said to me 'why not try those clothes' I just laughed and said "not possible" but I decided to try them anyways. Lo and behold, Cheliz they FIT me!!  I still need to lose a bit more weight for a PERFECT fit. I never knew I will ever make this kind of progress, i'm happy and I wont stop here.  Just like you said determination is a starting point. Nothing is impossible if you are determined. Who said we can't be sexy ever again? Its a big lie. I just want to encourage people on this blog that we can make progress if we do it right. I'm also going to join on this August challenge.  FAT MUST DIE! Together we can do this. Let's keep encouraging one another. Cheers.

I attached the picture of the pants I couldn't take the picture of the top before sharing. Thanks. 

Sweetpie.

Wow! God bless you Sweetpie. Again i pray God blesses you with the grace and strength to reach your goals, both in weight loss and life generally. *hugs and kisses*
Cheliz.

  1. Just like sweetie, I have more than 15 outfits that are too small for me. I keep hoping I will loose some weight. My target is 68kg-70kg. I need to lose 10-15kg to get there. I'm working hard but it's surely slow. I wish it would go away b4 October

  3. Congrats Sweetpie. Just yesterday I was telling Cheliz, about fitting back into my size 12. When I started the June Challenge I was wearing size 16 since all my fourteens were super tight, except the blue dress I wore in the challenge pix (bulges everywhere:) I swore I would not buy a size 18, so when I saw the challenge, I knew I had to do it. Now I'm on the meal plan I won:), and have refused to check the scale. So I've been using my clothes to see if any weight loss. On Tuesday when I was feeling lazy about exercising, I decided to try my size 12, for a reality check on why I need to exercise, and to my surprise it fit. This is a dress that a couple of months ago, when I tried it on even the sleeves were tight. God is good. Ms. Cheliz, God will continue to bless you for the inspiration, motivation and encouragement.
